Emerald Reef Golf Course

The course is on the Bahamas' Exuma, and is located along the beautiful Emerald Bay Beach. The six signature holes stretch along the perimeter of the bay and offer golfers some of the best ocean views around. The spectacular scenery will help lift your spirits from what can turn into a frustrating round of golf when the winds are high.

Course Description

Built in 2003, this golf course in the Bahamas has made itself an established site to hit or play a few rounds of golf. Greg Norman is the designer of the course. It has earned a course rating of 67.6, and its 18 holes have a total length of 5642 yards.

The lush fairways of paspalum grass meander alongside well-preserved sand dunes that curl around the bay.
