The Reef Club Golf Course

The course at the Reef Club is roughly 7,000 yards long, and the well kempt fairways might make your ball run a little further than you think. Its greens are large and fast, and will be conducive to golfers with a good short game. The course is operated in a fairly laid-back fashion, and you needn't feel rushed to finish your round by any particular time. You'll still need to call ahead to reserve a tee time though.

Course Description

The golf course is open from 10am to 6pm daily.

Founded in 2000, this course in the Bahamas has become an established site for visiting golfers. The lay of the land, difficulty of the holes, and bunkers were created by Robert Trent Jones Jr., the architect of The Reef Club Golf Course. The golf course features a course rating of 72.3, and its 18 holes measure out to a total of 6515 yards. Also be aware that there's a golf pro, Zack Fidler, available at the course ready to help novices work on their skills or give more advanced tips for well-versed golfers.

The quickness of the fairways and greens, coupled with the thick patches of natural foliage all around the course will make you lose a few more balls than you might normally, but the beauty of the course and the stunning oceans vistas it offers will keep you from cursing too much even when your score isn't as low as you'd like. The course also features 11 lakes which are spread throughout, along with a bunch of sand traps.
