Apes Hill Club is a world-class Golf, Polo and Tennis community located 1000 feet above sea level with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Our team at One Caribbean Estates recently had the opportunity to meet with Linda Williams, Director of Sales and Rentals at the exclusive Apes Hill Club to learn more about the Club’s future vision and tour the new Clubhouse. Scheduled to open summer of 2016, this will be the first true Country Club in Barbados as all amenities will be centrally located and accessible to members. Housed within the Clubhouse will be the Sales and Leasing Offices, the Professional Shop, fitness centre, locker rooms and pools. There will also be an à la carte dining restaurant that will serve breakfast and lunch, from the Clubhouse patio. Members will enjoy a majestic panorama of the Caribbean Sea as well as views overlooking the tennis court facilities, golf practice range and polo field. After our visit, it’s no surprise that Apes Hill Club is quickly becoming one of island’s most sought-after communities. We are proud to be real estate representatives for this prestigious community and we invite you to contact Jason Applewhite for further inquiries.
