Belmont Hills Golf Club is a semi-private resort course that offers a demanding round of golf on pristine, intensely bunkered, multi-tiered U.S.G.A. greens overlooking Bermuda's famous turquoise blue sea. Professional course designer Algie M. Pulley Jr. moved mountains to design the Belmont Hills course. Literally. The veteran architect found an existing layout that was largely featureless. But after the most extensive golf course rebuilding project Bermuda has ever seen, a new topography and popular course emerged.
Pulley created a magnificent, contoured layout that maximizes the golfer's experience while showcasing the Island's captivating beauty. Panoramic views of Hamilton Harbour and the Great Sound provide the backdrop for some of the finest 18 holes on the Island. Belmont Hills' greens are built to U.S.G.A. standards and sprigged, naturally enough, with TiffEagle Bermuda Grass. And although Bermuda has its fair share of sand, Belmont Hills' bunkers hold the same sand Master's players try to avoid at Augusta National.
Water hazards come in to play on several holes, which is unusual for a Bermudian course. (Bermuda doesn't have any natural creeks or rivers and only a handful of freshwater ponds). Two large ponds complement the dramatic rolling landscape.
