Turfunderground Takes You To the Abaco Club, Bahamas


Looking for a weekend trip this winter to get out of the cold, you should check out the Abaco Club in the Bahamas. This gem of the islands is the work of Englishman investor Mr. Peter De Savary. Mr. De Savary has teamed up with Ritz-Carlton to take his dream to the next level. The Club has a 18 hole golf course that was designed by architects Donald Steel and Tom McKenzie. They have created a wonderful links style course in the tropics. The course is a par 72 and it measures 7,100 from the back tees. The course was grassed with paspalum and it looks great, some of the best I have ever seen. The greens are large, like The Old Course, and take some time getting use to them. The views you get during your round of golf are amazing. The first par 3 on the front nine takes your breath away. Hit two balls to enjoy very minute of it. You feel like you are hitting over a sand dune to a large section of green carpet on the beach. Holes 17 and 18 have put Pebble Beach on guard.
The property is now being managed by the Ritz-Carlton Clubs so the service is top notch to match the golf course. They have cottages you can rent that provide the views of the Winding Bay. The beach and pools provide plenty of access to fill anyones swimming needs. You can fly into Marsh Harbour Airport and have a car service take you on the 30 minute trip to the property. Check out my video below showing my day trip to play golf and have lunch at the Abaco Club. We flew out in the morning from Palm Beach International and landed at Marsh Harbour. After a great day of golf we flew back and were home by 6:30 in the evening. Thanks again Mr. De Savary for a wonderful day.
