With beautiful weather year-round, incredible oceanfront views, and championship courses that have been designed and played by some of golfing’s best, the Bahamas offers a golfing getaway like no other. Here are Aristo’s top picks for golf all within a short drive from your Thirty Six luxury condo on Paradise Island or your One Cable Beach luxury condo in Nassau.
Albany Golf Club
Located at the South West end of New Providence, Albany is a luxury community with one of the best courses in the Bahamas. Designed by Ernie Els and home to Tiger Woods among other PGA and LPGA pros, the 7,400 yard desert links style course has played host to the Hero World Challenge. With a mix of windswept dunes and challenging water features, Albany has drawn inspiration from the UK and Australia to provide a difficult but balanced round for golfers of all skill levels.

Ocean Club Paradise Island
Home of the 2016 PureSilk Bahamas LPGA Classic earlier this year, and also the host of the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational tournament, the Ocean Club Golf course is an award winning course set amongst prime Paradise Island real estate. Designed by championship course architect Tom Weiskopf, it offers oceanfront views, well placed bunkers and lagoons, and perfectly maintained greens. Though you’ll have to be a guest of the One and Only Ocean Club or the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort to play, it’s well worth it to experience this incredible golfing experience so close to your Thirty Six luxury condo.
