Bahamas Golf, Golfing and Golf Courses

Bahamas Golf CoursesConsistent sunshine makes the Bahamas an ideal location for golf and the islands regularly host world-class tournaments. There is no season to limit play here, just year-round blue skies and warm weather. Nassau averages seven hours of completely sunny skies per day, and rain seldom lasts for longer than it takes to get under cover, even during the rainy season.

Both 9 and 18-hole golf courses abound; whatever your handicap, you’ll be able to find the right course for you.
