“When we die, you can go to Heaven if you want.
I would rather stay right here in Bermuda”----Mark Twain

Welcome to Bermuda, Mates! Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, the island country of Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory under independent rule approximately 665 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The first known person to have reached Bermuda was Spanish sea captain Juan de Bermudez in 1505, after whom the island was named. At that time, Juan de Bermudez claimed the island for the Spanish Empire. In 1609, the English Virginia Company, which established Jamestown in Virginia, permanently settled Bermuda, and the English Crown took over the administration of the island shortly afterward. The island of Bermuda officially became a British colony in 1707. The strong British influence is very apparent to this day as you enjoy "high tea" at 4:00 PM or take in a Cricket Match!

Bermuda is the northernmost point of the "Bermuda Triangle," a region of the sea in which, according to legend, a number of aircraft and surface vessels have disappeared under supposedly unexplained or mysterious circumstances. Most of this legend is due to the fact that Bermuda is in the hurricane belt and prone to severe weather, even though it is somewhat protected by the coral reef that surrounds the island.

Today, Bermuda's economy is mainly comprised of offshore insurance/reinsurance and tourism. Bermuda's subtropical climate and its top golf courses make it a perfect instructional golf and vacation destination 12 months out of the year. While in Bermuda, play world-famous golf courses, including Port Royal, Mid-Ocean, and Tucker's Point. In fact, Port Royal hosts a PGA Tour Event each year called The Bermuda Championship. At the conclusion of your daily golf instruction and a round of golf, relax on Bermuda's pink sand beaches, frolic in its warm aqua blue waters, swim with dolphins, boat, fish, or sit at one of their fun beach bars while enjoying a Bermuda Swizzle as you take in the stunning coastal sites. Both scuba divers and snorkelers can explore the numerous shipwrecks and coral reefs in relatively shallow waters just offshore. The golfing and watersports in Bermuda are endless!

Transportation around the island is relatively easy with their very convenient taxi and bus service. The best way to tour this small island country, however, is on motorized bikes, Bermies, and Twizzies, which can be rented throughout the island. Bermies and Twizzies are very small 2-person cars for those feeling uncomfortable driving on the left side of the road on motorbikes. View Bermuda's pastel-colored homes and explore every corner of the island as you control your own destiny. Without a doubt, my wife Jill and I love touring around on our bikes after a morning on the golf course! Needless to say, the people of Bermuda are extremely friendly, and the crime is virtually zero!

During the evenings, watch the amazing sunsets as you enjoy Bermuda's delicious cuisine (heavily influenced by the sea) and enjoy their world-class entertainment shortly afterward. Dance the night away in Bermuda up until your morning tee time when you set out to achieve your new personal low round on one of Bermuda's beautiful golf courses!

If you are looking for picturesque and challenging golf experiences here in the United States or on a beautiful island abroad with amazing views, world-class beaches, pristine nature, exquisite cuisine, and memories of a lifetime, then a Caddyshack Golf instructional trip or vacation package to Bermuda is perfect for you!
