Port Royal Golf Club, site of this week’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship, is the longest golf course on the island of Bermuda.
It is also the shortest on the PGA Tour.
There are less than 10 golf courses on the whole island. There are only four courses under 7,000 meters on the Tour’s program for the 2022 calendar year.
Port Royal in Southhampton, Bermuda was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and opened in 1970. This is the event’s fourth year in Bermuda.
The course plays like a par 71 and measures 6,828 yards, making it the shortest in 2022 at 24 yards. At the other end of the scale is Torrey Pines (south) in San Diego, host of the Farmers Insurance Open. This course checks in at 7,765 yards.
