Distinction Complements Rave Reviews for Newly Opened Course at Luxury Resort Residential Community
SAINT JAMES, Barbados, May 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — A panel of judges for Golf Inc., the leading international trade publication, voted Apes Hill Barbados runner-up in its annual Development of the Year competition.
The award “recognizes the finest private clubs and daily fee/resort courses with the best new traditional and non-traditional golf courses that opened during the past year around the globe.”
Winners were judged according to how well the vision of the project was executed, the course aesthetics, economic and environmental sustainability, course routing and land usage. Comments from three Development of the Year judges show why Apes Hill Barbados was selected:
“A wonderfully conceived and executed vision with a strong emphasis on environmental sustainability. Shaping of fairways, bunkers and green complexes are dramatic and unique.”
“Spectacular! Beautiful modern buildings, great golf, all in a luxury setting, this place has it going on!”
“Beautiful views in a tropical environment; impressive commitment to environmental sustainability.”
Glenn J. Chamandy, a Canadian investor, founder, and CEO of leading clothing brand Gildan Activewear, purchased the property in 2019 and embarked on an ambitious project to redefine golfing and estate living on the Caribbean Island.
“The Development of the Year honor is deeply appreciated because the judges touched on the essence of Apes Hill Barbados in their comments,” said Sunil Chatrani, Executive Chairman, Apes Hill Barbados. “We’ve taken great care to build a course and comprehensive golf experience that complements our first-class community. This is a place where people embrace the important things in life: family, friendships, health, and connection to nature.”
In addition to the Ron Kirby designed, 18-hole championship golf course, Apes Hill Barbados offers exceptional, complementary golf amenities including the short course, a 19th hole, sleek clubhouse, and state-of-the-art Golf Performance Centre.
