Although prestige is a benefit to living in a golf course community, direct access to the course is the biggest selling point for most avid golfers. Living directly on a golf course offers time to practice and play without being too far from home or family. For those who also enjoy rooms with extraordinary views and access to some of the best beaches in the world, there’s simply no better match for golfers than golf communities in The Bahamas. From Paradise Island to Lyford Cay and Albany, every country club community is accompanied by stellar amenities, stunning views and white powder sand as far as the eye can see.
One of the most exclusive luxury resort communities in Nassau, Ocean Club Estates on Paradise Island offers residents access to The Ocean Club Golf Course, an 18-hole, par 72 Bahamas golf course featuring breathtaking signature holes and seaside greens and tees stretched over 7,100 yards of beautiful coastline. The Ocean Club golf course is the proud home of the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational tournament, which brings out celebrities in the world of sports and entertainment playing to benefit their favorite charities. Residences of this community enjoy all of the five-star communities associated with The Ocean Club, a Four Seasons property.
Likened to “playing golf in a magnificent tropical garden,” the ultra-exclusive Lyford Cay Club was built in the late 1950s, refurbished in 2006 and today remains one of the world’s most elite golf courses. Restricted to members and guests, the 18-hole golf course designed by Rees Jones is surrounded by mature native trees.
Albany’s 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Ernie Els, combines the best of links and desert features with windswept dunes and numerous scenic and strategically challenging water features. In addition to the par-72, 7,400-yard golf course, Albany features first-class practice facilities including a 400-yard driving range, short game area with chipping and putting greens, and a cutting-edge swing performance center, all set aside an expansive golf clubhouse with grill room, men’s and ladies locker rooms, a golf shop and 18-seat media and movie theater. The course is surrounded by magnificent homes such as Tee Time and Belle Brisé.
Set in Nassau, The Bahamas, the front nine of Baha Mar’s Jack Nicklaus-designed Royal Blue golf course features dramatic views of undulating fairways and rolling white sand dunes. The back nine transports you to limestone “moonscapes” and elevation changes making Royal Blue a stunning golf course to see – and a thrilling challenge to play. Each morning our grounds crew places tee locations on the Royal Blue course according to the changing Nassau, The Bahamas weather, and playing conditions, ensuring a unique experience each time you play.
