Three challenging courses
For great golf this winter and spring

For golfers, Grand Bahama offers three exceptional courses, each with a distinct character, all open to the public.

The Reef, a links-style course designed by Robert Trent Jones, has wide, forgiving fairways balanced with many challenging sand traps, ready to humble the overconfident player. Making this course even more interesting are the water hazards on 13 of the 18 holes. This rewarding shot-maker’s course requires accuracy, so a three wood or long iron is often preferred over a driver off the tee.

The Ruby, in operation since 1964, is another popular 18-hole course. Renovated by Jim Fazio Golf Design, this gorgeous course also offers wide fairways and fast greens. The Ruby is equipped with a driving range, and a cozy clubhouse complete with wireless Internet and–like all golf courses–your favourite beverage.

Rounding out your choices on Grand Bahama is the Fortune Hills Golf and Country Club, which has the friendly ambience of a member’s club along with the challenges built in by master course architect Dick Wilson and his sidekick, Joe Lee, on a picturesque 17 acres.

Fortune Hills is a nine-hole beauty that measures just short of 7,000 yds when played twice from different tees. Challenging because of its elevated greens, Fortune Hills also has one of the longest par fives in The Bahamas at 530 yds.
