Bahamas

There are some 700 islands in the Bahamas archipelago and they stretch out through the Atlantic Ocean for more than 500 miles like a string of coral beads. Nassau is the capital of the Bahamas and the city is located on New Providence Island where there are a number of fine golf courses with Albany and the Ocean Club heading the bill.

Grand Bahama Island boasts a couple of good layouts with Dick Wilson’s 1960s Lucayan golf course at the Grand Lucayan Resort leading the way but that layout is now closed, however the Robert Trent Jones II track at the resort’s Reef Club is still open for play.

Stars of the Bahamian golf course show are located on the islands of Abaco and the tropical links of the Abaco Club is simply an unforgettable experience. Baker's Bay was laid out by Tom Fazio in 2010 and is set on a sliver of sandy shoreline on the west flank of Great Guana Cay and it's currently our No.1. But remember, if you plan to get around these islands by car, don’t forget that British road rules apply, so make sure you drive your car on the left!
