Golfers use to flock to Eleuthera back in the 50s and 60s, but over time the golf courses on the island slipped into neglect. However, this course is trying to reverse the trend and attempting to put the island back on the golfing map. The course isn't yet the best the Bahamas has to offer, but if you're looking for a quiet spot to play a few relaxing holes, this might be just the spot.
The course layout, hole placement, and practice areas are all part of the design by Robert Trent Jones, the architect of this golf course. The golf course features 18 holes, which stretch out a total length of 7068 yards.
The course features subtle, though distinct, changes in elevation, and is surrounded by the beautiful sights and sounds of this peaceful Bahamanian island. Native tree groves dot the course and a number of its holes are situated right along the stunning coastline, and look out onto the turquoise waters offshore.
