"Everywhere we looked--hibiscus, casuarinas and the sea. Good thing our caddy watched the ball." That's Rendezvous Season in Bermuda! Golfers love Bermuda, with a spe cial passion. But there's so much more to see and do on our beautiful island that thousands of non-golfers also spend their happi est holidays here! Bermuda offers 7 magnificent courses, tucked away on an island of only 21 square miles. A Gulf Stream climate makes it perfect for year-round golf. Bermuda's springy turf stays lush and green when snows cover more northern golf courses. No less than 108 holes await you! Holes curling around cliffs above the ocean. Holes squeezing through groves of casuarinas. With two added hazards everywhere: sea breezes-and spectacular views. This is what golf should be! Bermuda loves golfers-and pampers them-but not exclusively. During our celebrated Rendezvous Season (November through Febru ary) there's so much to beguile you. Tennis, sailing, fishing, biking down our lovely byways, shopping and sightseeing in ancient towns. Trips by water, horse-drawn carriage, fringe-topped taxi. Dining superbly, at inns by the water's edge. Dancing and entertainment at our great hotels and swinging night clubs. And special events every day of the week! Sports, pageantry, so cial affairs-like our famous Bridge Tournament and our International Dog Show. Yacht racing, Sunfish re gattas. Fireworks displays on Guy Fawkes Day, Gombey dancers on parade December 26th. Everywhere a special air of friendly welcome. And very special hotel rates and air fares during Rendezvous Season.
