The consistency of sunshine instantly makes Bahamas golf clubs a perfect choice to spend your golfing vacation. The Bahamas frequently hosts professional golf tournaments which is ideal for golf enthusiasts. The year-round clear skies and warm weather means that playing in Bahamas golf clubs at any time of the year is possible. Even when it rains, an average temperature of 70 degrees guarantees that the grass will always be green—enabling you to play 365 days a year.
Practice your game at the courses in Freeport
Designed by Robert Trent-Jones and Dick Wilson, The Reef at Our Lucaya is one of the best courses to hone your short game due to the deceptive speed of the greens. With water present in 13 out of the 18 holes, your overall skill will be tested and practiced. The wide fairways are fairly merciful but the intimidating assortment of bunkers that surround the greens will penalize any errant shot. Take note that this is a shot-makers course, so keep those drivers in the bag. A long iron or a three wood will be your weapon of choice. Of all the Bahamas golf clubs around, The Reef in Freeport Bahamas is one of the highest rated courses.
The other golf course in Freeport is the Lucayan golf course. This Bahamas golf club pits you against Grand Bahama’s natural wonders as well as some tricky obstacles from the extremely imaginative mind of Dick Wilson. The objective of this golf course is to challenge the accuracy of your game, not how far you can drive the golf ball. The course has various traps, trees, and water threats that test even the most skilled of players. Its tall trees shade the sun and give you a sense of isolation from other players present in the course. With wide fairways and well-protected greens, the Lucayan golf course is a perfect place on this paradise island to enjoy the game.
Play at any of these three golf clubs in Nassau
The Sheraton Cable Beach Resort, formerly known as the Radisson Cable Beach Resort & Golf Club, is perhaps one of the most underrated destinations in Nassau. The recently remodeled golf course boasts 6,453 yards and features expensive fairways defended by a stunning network of lakes. The greens are secured by a sequence of several mounds to create control and to support the golfer who sporadically strikes an errant shot. Furthermore, the course doesn’t have a lot of sand bunkers making it a perplexing but “resort-friendly” course for players of any skill level.
The One and Only Ocean Club Bahamas boasts an 18-hole championship-caliber golf course that plays a challenging par 72 across 7,100 yards on Paradise Island. Tom Weiskopf drew up this perfect Bahamian golf location, highlighting picturesque coastal tees and greens, and using alternating fairways to offer what could be the definitive test of your golfing skills.
The Blue Shark Golf Course is another of those scenic designs that maximizes luxurious, tropical scenery. The par-71 golf course has been carried into the 21st Century by broadening the former South Ocean design to over 7,100 yards with a comprehensive recreation of the greens. The Blue Shark’s specialty is its unique three-hole series, holes 10 to 12, known somewhat admiringly by the natives as “The Shark’s Teeth.” Upon hearing the term, anyone who is passionate about golf will be reminded by another 3-hole series from another course, the Bear Trap at the PGA National Resort. While the Bear Trap is one unforgiving challenge, even for the experts, the Shark’s Teeth is quite enjoyable and not as frightening.
With the great options offered in various Bahamas golf clubs, golf fanatics will definitely be able to make the most out of their Bahamian vacation!
