Rod Stewart, the classic voice of rock-n-roll
This is an outstanding piece of land for a seaside golf course. It is spectacularly tropical with its long sandy beach, reefs, bluffs and lush vegetation. It is everything that people would expect of the Bahamas and more. The diversity of the land is perhaps the most surprising feature of the site, ranging from the high, rocky ocean Point to the dense vegetation behind the beach. It is one of the most natural sites for the world's first Scottish style, tropical links golf course.
Donald Steel- Golf Course Architect
"I have needed somewhere to escape to and The Abaco Club is the perfect place. Being able to relax and chill out in beautiful surroundings where the sea is as clear as tap water and the sand as white as snow is as close as you can get to heaven on earth.
