Paradise Island, The Bahamas

Book now

course description

The first course in the Bahamas was a piece of ground west of Nassau, cleared before World War II, but the likes of Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones and Byron Nelson played there, and the Duke of Windsor was a regular when Governor of the Bahamas. In the 1960s, Canadian E. P. Taylor, famous for owning the racehorse Northern Dancer, established Lyford Quay as one of the world's most private courses. After Hogg Island received the more apt name of Paradise Island and a bridge to the mainland, the game arrived there. The first course was unimpressive, but with the advent of Atlantis, Sol Kertzner's futuristic pleasure-dome, a serious course was laid out by Tom Weiskopf, and has been endorsed by the likes of Ernie EIs and Tiger Woods. This remains an out-and-out resort course, played by holidaymakers, with beautiful flashes of pure white sand and bright green grass, but few meaningful hazards.
