BARBADOS - golf

Sandy Lane



Barbados Sports Tourism

Sandy Lane,in Barbados, offers top class golf. Throughout the Caribbean, the name Sandy Lane is synonymous with affluence and grandeur. Originally built in the 1960's by Ronald Tree (a former adviser to Sir Winston Churchill and the joint founder of the Barbados National Trust) no expense was spared in creating this winter retreat. Many of Tree's friends purchased property around the hotel and its famous golf club.


Recently it was purchased by Irish-born financiers John McManus and Dermot Desmond who totally renovated and refurbished Sandy Lane to world class standards.

Coming swiftly on the heels of their annual awards ceremony, Sandy Lane resort’s management and staff have yet another reason to make merry. This time they are celebrating AAA Five Diamond status for 2006.

Sandy Lane
new chief executive officer (CEO) Michael Pownall,

Date December 21, 2005 Compliments of the Nation News

Sandy Lane HoteL is seeking to reposition itself as the premier luxury hotel in the world. This according to the new chief executive officer (CEO) Michael Pownall, who was speaking to the Press yesterday at the St James hotel.

He said the owners of the luxury property, which was renovated in 2001, had a long-term vision for the hotel that was as much about quality as it was about making money because they were "so deep and so passionate" about the hotel and the island.
"They really have this vision to make it the premier luxury hotel in the entire world," the CEO said.
Pownall, a Briton with 22 years' experience in the hotel business, said the 112-room hotel had performed quite strongly for the second year in a row. Read more

$3b boost - Friday 10, December-2004

Prime Minister Owen Arthur

by Albert Brandford

BARBADOS stands to benefit from an additional $3 billion in foreign exchange inflows, through the villas component in the final phase of the multi-million-dollar luxury resort complex at Sandy Lane, St James.

This was disclosed last night by Prime Minister Owen Arthur as he wound up the three-day debate in the House of Assembly on the 2004 Financial and Economic Policy Statement.

The anticipated fireworks against the Opposition never materialised as Arthur instead calmly defended the measures he outlined in the Budget to change the island’s export culture.

The new Sandy Lane complex will involve construction of 111 villas over a ten- to 15-year period on 280 acres stretched mainly across the Green Monkey Golf Course.

Sources last night said villas would cost upward of $10 million, including the land. Construction on the first set will not get going until after the Green Monkey, which is already completed, is opened sometime in 2005.

Arthur said Barbados must stop its love-hate relationship with such projects because of the “politics of envy” which caused it to have an anti-developmental approach.

He assured the House that there were some things which Government had to do such as capping land taxes, noting that most of the investment here was coming from Britain where there was such a cap.

“We are not doing this because we want to pass money to white, wealthy people,” he explained, “but because these people come from a culture that is accustomed to a cap on land tax.”

Arthur said Barbados was at an “interesting and delicate stage” but he was not underestimating the balance of payments problem, saying he would not “play with it” or cause any problem in the form of a loss of reserves through the actions of the Government.

“We are putting in place measures to change the export culture, broaden the export base,” he added.

Compliments of the Nation News

Happy New Year DANCING BARON. It must have been the richest congaline ever assembled on New YearÕs Day. Some of the worldÕs wealthiest, guests of the five-star Sandy Lane Hotel, put their cares aside and mingled with Barbadians while enjoying great food, drink and an exhibition of some of the islandÕs best talent. There was fire-eating, tuk band music, stiltwalkers, the Landship, belly dancers, Mother Sally, and several costumed dancers depicting the various elements of Crop-Over, as they danced to sweet calypso rhythms played by backing band Rhapsody. Then guests converged on the dance floor, formed a congaline and had a ball, as demonstrated by Baron de Rothschild, who was fascinated by this Bajan dancer. (Picture by Gregory Waldron.)
