Riddell's Bay Golf and Country Club, opened in 1922, is Bermuda's oldest golf course. The club winds along a peninsula which, at its widest point, measures only some 600 yards. These scenic links provide golfers with a magnificent challenge to both their game and camera. The course was originally designed by architect Devereux Emmett who, shortly afterwards, built the Congressional near Washington, D.C., the site of the 1997 U.S. Open. Just as Congressional was remodeled by Robert Trent Jones, and again more recently by his son, Rees Trent Jones, so is Riddell's Bay gradually acquiring a new look.  While Riddell's Bay may not pose the sternest test on the island, in part due to its relatively short length, it is still an enjoyable test for all golfers. Measuring 5,800 yards, with some of the holes mapped out on an ocean peninsula that measures 600 yards at its widest point, this is a truly unique layout.
