Royal Blue Golf Course at Baha Mar


Recommended Posts

I'm tagging along to the Bahamas with the wife in June and since she'll be working some of the time, I'll be fooling around playing golf. We're going to be in Nassau so here's where I'm playing: Royal Blue Golf Course at Baha Mar - https://bahamar.com/experiences/golf/

1.jpg

I haven't seen much about the course aside from some light Googling, so I created this thread to get some feedback and to see if I missed a course worth playing! I'll use this thread to toss up some pics when I'm on both courses. I appreciate any and all thoughts!

WOW! As if hitting across water isn't mind-screwing enough, some sadistic designer decided that the green also needed to be protected by a bunker too..!??!? Diabolical in its beauty..!

About five years ago, this of us who won the yearly sales award were scheduled to go to Baha Mar just after it’s official opening. We were STOKED! We had been on a similar trip to Atlantis, so this was going to be fun comparing the two properties.
Well, then the Zika Virus scare hits, and the trip was canceled. We got La Quinta Resort in Cali instead...... Ugh.
I’m jealous of whomever goes to Baha Mar! I’d have loved to have seen that place.

The ‘gift’ you get at the first tee that’s vodka and juice. Guess they want people tipsy so it numbs the pain they’re about to experience [emoji23]

Before I do the photo dump, I’ll say overall this was a solid course and it was one of the better Nicklaus designs I’ve played. There was one weather delay, but it was quick. The humidity was a beast though and I was covered in sweat after one hole. I’m definitely spoiled as I’ve played better courses, but I’m glad I took advantage and played it. Enjoy the pics!

Yeah that’s definitely one of the good things about the course, but it’s not surprising considering how much damn rain they get out here. What was more impressive was how dry the course was because it was pouring for a couple hours yesterday.
