Top golf course honor as The Bahamas’ Best Golf Course
[dropcap size=small]S[/dropcap]andals Emerald Reef Golf Club, part of the Sandals Emerald Bay Golf, Tennis and Spa Resort complex, was recently named The Bahamas’ Best Golf Course at the 1st Annual World Golf Awards, held this winter at the Conrad Algarve, Portugal.
The World Golf Awards, part of the World Travel Awards, were developed specifically to acknowledge excellence in golf tourism through an annual recognition program. The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 for the express purpose of honoring excellence in all areas of the world’s travel and tourism industry. Now celebrating its 21st anniversary, it is regarded as the highest achievement that a travel product can receive. Both award programs are heralded as “the Oscars of the travel industry.”
“We are honored to receive such notable recognition from the World Golf Awards,” said Gordon “Butch” Stewart, Chairman of Sandals Resorts International. “We strive to offer our guests the best amenities, and golf is no exception. The Greg Norman-designed course is one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the Caribbean, and this award is a true testament to that.”
Located along the pristine white-sand beach and turquoise waters of Great Exuma’s Emerald Bay, the Sandals Emerald Reef Golf Club is a spectacular 18-hole championship golf course designed by legendary golf professional Greg Norman. The 7,001-yard, par 72 course features not one, but six signature holes to challenge novice and professional golfers alike. With fairways lining the ocean, the Sandals Emerald Reef Golf Club provides a memorable experience for any golfer. Five different tee boxes are available to accommodate guests at every skill level. The course’s first nine holes wind through a mix of seaside dunes and mangrove preserves while holes 11 through 16 play along the rocky peninsula offering unparalleled views of the turquoise Emerald Bay. In addition to award-winning golf, Sandals Resorts offer luxurious vacations experiences throughout the Caribbean.
