Royal Blue Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at the massive Baha Mar resort in Nassau, is now open. With the opening, Baha Mar becomes Nicklaus Design’s first layout in the Bahamas.
Royal Blue is uniquely designed as two courses in one. The layout features several elevation changes with scenic vistas throughout the round. The front nine holes feature dramatic views of undulating fairways, rolling white sand dunes, brackish ponds, and glimpses of a turquoise Atlantic Ocean.
The back nine showcases a very different look. Players navigate stunning limestone “moonscapes” through dense jungle and steep downhill terrain to get to the island green on the 16th hole, which precariously borders Lake Cunningham.
The course spans 7,189 yards, and the beauty, difficulty and challenge of the design make the layout enjoyable for golfers of all levels.
Royal Blue Golf Club is part of a $4.2 billion luxury beachfront resort development, Baha Mar, that is planned to have three world-class hotels; more than 40 restaurants, bars and lounges; the largest casino in the Bahamas; and more than 30 luxury retail outlets. In addition to the Royal Blue Golf Club, the first phase opening includes the preview of The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar; Baha Mar Casino; The Baha Mar Convention, Art and Entertainment Center; tennis courts and facilities; multiple restaurants, bars and lounges; select spa experiences; the resort’s extensive pool and beach areas; and entry show lakes and fountain shows choreographed to music, film and lights.
