Anyone who’s been to Bermuda knows that it’s a golfer’s paradise. The twenty-one-square mile archipelago has seven beautifully manicured courses, many offering stunning water views. My favorite of the bunch is Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton, not only because it’s the home of the 2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf this October—the game’s premier season-ending tournament featuring Masters champ Phil Mickelson, U.S. Open champ Graeme McDowell, British Open champ Louis Oosthuizen and the winner of the PGA Championship this August—but because the public course often cranks out killer deals like this one: From today until September 30th guests of any island hotel can play 18 holes at Port Royal from 2pm onwards, then enjoy dinner at its ocean view clubhouse restaurant, 64º, for just $164. Considering green fees with a cart normally cost $180 and entrees at the restaurant hover around $20-$25, it’s a whopper of a deal. And forget about having to bring your sticks: Port Royal will also knock 50% off the price of golf club rentals (brand new Taylor Made Burners, by the way) making the total price for 18 holes with cart, golf clubs and dinner $189. Now that’s a package I can get behind. To book visit Port Royal Golf Course or call (441) 234-0974. Oh yeah, and if you're wondering, that's the 16th hole—Port Royal's signature par-three that's widely regarded as the greatest hole in golf. So what are you waiting for?
