Award-Winning Royal Blue Golf Course at Baha Mar is Two Courses in One


As the first Nicklaus Design project in the Bahamas, Royal Blue Golf Course at Baha Mar wasted no time capturing the attention of golfers. Royal Blue was named #1 in the Bahamas and in the Top 20 overall by GolfWeek’s Best 2022 list of top golf courses in Mexico, the Caribbean, the Atlantic Islands, and Central America. 

As part of the massive Baha Mar Resort, which includes a casino, restaurants, retail space, tennis, spa, and more, Royal Blue Golf Course, featuring Platinum TE Paspalum, offers the aesthetics of two courses in one. The front nine captures views of the Atlantic over rolling fairways, sandy white dunes, and numerous ponds.

“Platinum TE was a great selection for Royal Blue golf club because not only is it a good tee and fairway turf, but it handles the lower cutting heights for green surfaces and putts great. The Platinum TE has a beautiful deep green color and stripes up beautifully when cut which adds a wonderful contrasting look to this gorgeous site in the Bahamas.”

Chris Cochran, Senior Designer at Nicklaus Design

Make the turn, and golfers will find the Caribbean jungle, steep terrain, limestone “moonscapes,” and Lake Cunningham with a #16 island green.
