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.

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.
