Laid out on a sliver of sandy shoreline along the west flank of Great Guana Cay, Baker’s Bay first opened in 2010 when it was unveiled as Discovery Land Company’s fourteenth residential golf project.

Tom Fazio has been lead architect on most of these DLC developments (including Estancia in Arizona and Mountaintop in North Carolina) and, sure enough, he designed the course here – though his son Logan spent a considerable amount of time on site overseeing the build.

Platinum paspalum grass was used during construction from tee to green and the uniform fairways have largely been set out as wide playing corridors – flanked on occasion by large sandy waste areas – leading to generously proportioned putting surfaces.

The four-hole sequence starting at the 12th is seen as the “Amen Corner” of Baker’s Bay. The 12th and 14th are short par fours that should yield birdies (but often don’t) and they’re complemented by the right doglegged 13th, played from the highest point on the Cay, and the par three 15th, where the green nestles close to the Atlantic Ocean shore.
