Twenty-four Countries will be represented when some of the world’s best players compete in the 52nd playing of the World Golf Championships – Barbados World Cup, at the Country Club Course, Sandy Lane Resort, St. James, Barbados, from December 7th to 10th.
The Country Club Course is a 7,173 yard par 72 course, with the front nine being 3,638 yards and the back nine 3,535 yards, each nine being 36 par.
With the recent rains the course is blessed with lush greens, and open fairways with angled slopes, and includes five lakes. On many of the holes one gets a spectacular view of the warm Caribbean Sea.
