A golfer’s dream, this 18-hole, 7001 yard course has been named “The Caribbean’s Best Golf Hotel 2016” at the World Golf Awards. Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Course is the proud host of the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic, a PGA TOUR-sanctioned Web.com Tour event. The Web.com Tour is the path to the PGA TOUR, with over 450 PGA TOUR titles coming from former Tour players – including 22 major championships. The course also hosted the Golf Channel’s Big Break Sandals 2010.
Placing the front nine holes through scenic mangroves, Greg Norman took advantage of the landscape’s natural barriers. The back nine offers challenges of a different nature where the sea views create ample distractions from the focus of the game. The ever-changing course presents a worthy challenge for even the most avid golfer. While most courses feature one signature hole, Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Course has six, which edge a rocky coast, rolling emerald fairways, prevailing trade winds and blue water as far as the eyes can see. Golfers will experience a new game each time they play and there are five different tee boxes to accommodate every skill level.
