Lucayan Golf Course

The course is covered in a delightful assortment of tropical trees, which can also prove to be formidable obstacles. Expansive bunkering makes the greens seem minuscule, and a pair of water hazards are situated dangerously. The course is best suited to intermediate and experienced golfers. However, the mood is relaxed, and you feel like you have to rush through your round.

Course Description

This golf course has made itself a well-established location to play some holes, since it was founded in 1962. The greens, difficulty of the holes, and bunkers all came from the imagination of Dick Wilson, the lead architect of this golf course. They have 18 holes here, and they stretch out a total distance of 6824 yards.

Precision, rather than brute force, is required to turn in a quality round at Lucayan. If the fairways aren't winding about, they are intimidatingly narrow, and they are all well-lined with thick, fearsome rough. If accuracy is not your strong suit, you might end up having a long round. The course is near the ocean, and is in a high-class residential neighborhood.
