Jack’s Bay announced on Friday that it has opened its 10-hole Tiger Woods-designed golf course, the first of the club’s recreational amenities to open.
In a statement, Jack’s Bay stated that more of the club’s recreational amenities will open shortly.
The development was hoping to present the golf course earlier in the the year, but the threat of COVID-19 forced a postponement.
Jack’s Bay is chaired by Sir Franklyn Wilson and owned by a number of well-known local entities.
According to the company’s statement, the golf course, called The Playground, includes numerous novel features.
“Carefully crafted by one of the greatest talents in the history of golf, The Playground is intended to bring the pure enjoyment of the game to generations of players,” the statement noted.
“The short course sits atop a dramatic bluff, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Holes range in length from 55 to 170 yards and can be played in a variety of configurations, making it fun for families and friends, yet capable of challenging the game’s best players.
“Adding to the experience, a signature Blue Bar is located adjacent to the No. 4 green. Here, members will find a treasure trove of treats, ranging from assorted childhood candies, soft drinks and island favorites to exceptional sliders, jerky and other small dishes prepared daily by our culinary team.”
Woods said in the statement that the course is designed for fun and compliments the Rock Sound, Eleuthera, development.
“It is great to be part of this spectacular project in paradise,” said Woods.
“The natural terrain and coastline are incredibly beautiful and call for an equally spectacular golf experience. The golf course complements the true spirit of the Jack’s Bay development because it’s designed for golfers to have fun, foster friendships and create memories within an unforgettable setting.”
The development will include 500 residences, club suites and spacious estate lots.
