Paradise Island Golf Course

This gorgeous championship course is situated on the east side of Paradise Island, across from downtown Nassau. One of the more iconic golf courses in the Caribbean, it was named as one of the top 10 resort golf course in all of North America by Golf Digest. The course is covered with bunkers and water hazards, but perhaps the most difficult aspect of the course is the strong crosswinds that will almost undoubtedly be blowing.

Course Description

The course is never closed during the winter season, keeping its doors open to golfers year round.

Built in 1958, this course in the Bahamas has made itself an established site to hit or play a few rounds of golf. Tom Weiskopf is the designer of Paradise Island Golf Course. The golf course has a course rating of 71.0, and its 18 holes stretch out 6267 yards.

The layout of the course is one that will be appreciated both for the golfing quality it offers and for the stunning ocean views that you will have on almost every single hole. Palm trees line the walkways, and sandy beaches run alongside the course on two sides, while the Paradise Harbour sits to the south.
