The Bermuda Championship is back in 2021, taking place right after the Zozo Championship in Japan. While the change of location warrants less prominent names on the field, it still provides its own kind of entertainment. The event will also be taking place at the Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton, Bermuda.

Extremely beautiful, the golf course is one of the best public courses in the world. It has 18 championship holes to offer, stretching over 6842 yards. Famous architect Robert Trent Jones Sr designed the course back in 1970. However, players will now play on a $14.5 million renovated course, which has given the fairways a completely new look.

Another highlight of the course is its driving range, which is 300 yards with a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. While one could say holes are easy, they can be just as tricky and challenging with strategic hazards placed all over. Of course, the course offers a luxurious clubhouse experience, with countless events taking place at the venue.
