Best golf courses: Bahamas

The Islands of The Bahamas boast an unbeatable combination of world-class golf courses, stunning locations and an idyllic tropical climate that allows year-round play. Each island has its own personality and attractions in addition to some of the world’s best golf. Following the LPGA's Pure Silk Bahamas Classic hosted by The Ocean Club on Paradise Island, tourism boosted significantly and since then attracted many more golfers to the island.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
