Golfing on the Grand Bahamas Island attracts both the novice and the professional alike. Enjoy open fairways and an island breeze year round; and if you’re worried about traveling with golf equipment, don’t worry, one will find the pro shops will have everything necessary to play the island way. So why wait until Father’s Day for your golfing get-away? Enjoy golfing at its best on Grand Bahamas Island, home to 2 picturesque courses each with its own individual charm and challenges. The Our Lucaya Beach and Golf Resort offers golf vacation packages for its two championship courses, The Lucayan and The Reef.
Opened in 2000 and designed by golf legend Robert Trent Jones, Jr., The Reef is considered to be one of the finest courses in the Caribbean, and was ranked 29th in 2010 Golfweek’s Best Caribbean and Mexico Courses. This 6,930 yards of links-style course has wide-winding fairways, sprawling-undulating greens and an assortment of treacherous water traps. Actually out of the 18 holes, 13 have some type of water to deal with. Add to that the tall grass and breezy climate, this open fairway course is deceptively challenging. The breathtaking layout requires a good short game, patience and precision. We have many more Bahamas Vacation Information, Travel Review and Tourist Attractions Articles Now Available.
Designed in 1962 by Dick Wilson and made over after the hurricane of 2004, The Lucayan course attracts professional and amateurs golfers from around the world. This course has tree-lined fairways, sharp doglegs and cavernous bunkers. Golfers often note a unique experience that the course was designed in such a way that players can only see the current hole, with all other holes are out of site. With its intense tropical foliage, golfers will agree this course is as every bit beautiful as it is challenging. Both The Reef and The Lucayan have hosted the PGA’s Bahamas National Open, the Senior PGA’s Slam and 12 other national championships. There is a pro shop at the Reef and Our Lucayan courses where golfers can rent all the equipment needed to enjoy a day on the greens and fairways.
Both of these courses are part of the Our Lucaya Reef Village resort. The Reef Village offers golfing packages and all-inclusive vacation packages so it is all what you need to fit your budget.
