Apes Hill Club, an upscale golf and residential community in Barbados that is setting a new standard of excellence in the Caribbean, has a richly diverse landscape comprising rolling meadows, dense forests and coral stone quarries, creating a dramatic setting for the community’s luxurious homes. The 470-acre parcel, situated at one of the island’s high points, has been divided into eight neighbourhoods, with each neighbourhood named after a 17th-century plantation. The community’s entrance, road layouts, lot configurations and landscaping are designed to blend with the site’s ecology. Due to the exceptional natural beauty of the former plantation, two-thirds of the club’s acreage will remain as open space. Situated in the center of Apes Hill Club at one of the highest points on the island, access to Holders Meadow is via a gentle country estate road that cuts through a dramatic, centuries-old coral stone gully and leads into a tropical park in the middle of the neighbourhood. All 36 lots have golf, sea or park views; several of the lots look west to the Caribbean Sea or east to the Atlantic Ocean. Holders Meadow is flanked on all sides by five holes (No: 2, 3, 15, 16 and 17) on the Apes Hill golf course. In addition to vista portals to both coastlines, nearly every lot is bordered by a fairway. The golf holes themselves are as varied and unique as the site, starting with the massive par-five 15th, which offers players a spectacular ocean view and tumbles downhill to a lovely green guarded by a natural pond. The par-three 16th, set within a coral stone quarry, is one of the signature holes at Apes Hill Club.
