Golf in The Bahamas is absolutely breathtaking. With courses that line the clear-blue Atlantic waters, golfers from all over the world yearn for the chance to play in The Bahamas—even the pros. Take Great Exuma for example. It features an 18-hole championship golf course designed by golf legend Greg Norman. It’s set to become one of the world’s greatest oceanside clubs. Numerous islands in The Bahamas boast pristine golf courses that challenge both the novice and professional golfer.

The 18-hole Reef Course became part of Grand Bahama Island’s landscape in December 2000. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. in a contemporary links style, a strong short game goes a long way on this breathtaking course. The wide fairways may be a little forgiving but the huge bunkers that protect the greens are not. And the large, level greens may please the eye but their speed will harm your scorecard. Add that with an unpredictable ocean wind and you have yourself a formidable opponent.
