NASSAU GOLF COURSES
The Ocean Club
The Ocean Club features 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.
Paradise Island Golf Course
Paradise Island Golf Course 18-holes, 72-par, 6,776 yards; Dick Wilson-designed; 5 bunkers per hole, water/ocean on 11 holes.
South Ocean Golf Course
18-holes, 72-par, 6707 yards; Joe Lee-designed.
Before the bay beneath the bridge linking Nassau and Paradise Island was anything more than a marina cove for local fishermen to store their boats, golf architect Joe Lee laid out what is, still to this day, the purist and most interesting golf course on the island. At 6,707 yards, the Lee design benefited from a host of favourable conditions—interesting elevation changes, atypical to island terrain, and the privacy of a secluded peninsula—upon its construction, and for years garnered the word-of-mouth reputation as a modest but bright gem on New Providence. When Paradise Island exploded in the 1970s and 1980s, press lavishing praise on places like the Ocean Club became commonplace, while South Ocean, tucked away in the southwest corner of the island near Lyford Cay, took to the back seat in the popularity contest. One of the main projects of E.P. Taylor, the Canadian business baron who spent the last half of his life in the Bahamas, the South Ocean Club held a secure place in local and travel industry circles as an unsung golfing treasure. When the chatter slowly began to fade, the South Ocean Golf and Beach Resort took swift measures to resuscitate the Lee design’s reputation.
Cable Beach Golf Course
The Radisson's newly redesigned golf course plays 6,453 yards and features spacious, forgiving fairways guarded by a network of lakes. The greens are protected by a series of multiple mounds designed to create containment and to assist the golfer who occasionally strikes a stray shot. The course has fewer bunkers than you might expect for a championship layout, thus it's a challenging but somewhat friendly course. This is rare these days, for most designers seem intent on making their courses as difficult as possible. It's a nice change to play a course that offers an enjoyable day out for golfers of all skill levels.
The pro shop is fully stocked with equipment and rentals, along with a complete array of golf apparel and accessories. One more unique service offers the group outing professional help to arrange a tournament complete with prizes.
A free golf shuttle runs between the hotel and golf club from sunup until sundown
