Notes From the Island
Tiger Woods is highlighting a major new resort project on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. The new Jack’s Bay project is the brainchild of Jack’s Bay Developers, Beacon Land Development and Woods’ TGR Design. It will include the Caribbean’s first Tiger Woods-designed course, along with a residential resort and a private club.
One of the questions I’m asked most frequently is “how to get to Eleuthera.” In my Harbour Island guide, I explain how to travel to ELH, which is the airport in North Eleuthera. It’s one of three airports on Eleuthera and the easiest to fly into.
Tiger Woods Design has been hired to create a new ten-hole golf course in the Bahamas, with plans also released for a full 18-hole course at the same site. The course will form part of a new resort named Jack’s Bay, which is located near Rock Sound on the island of Eleuthera. Tiger Woods Design will be working with Beacon Land Development and Jack’s Bay Developers on the project.
On Tuesday, Woods and TGR Design announced the 41-year-old will helm a 10-hole short course in the Bahamas. Named “The Playgrounds,” the course will sit on the Atlantic Ocean with a sister 18-hole links to follow suit. The courses will be part of a private development called Jack’s Bay.
“I am honored to be part of this spectacular project in paradise,” Woods said in the release. “The amazing convergence of land and sea calls for an equally unique and incredible golf experience that TGR Design can deliver. The golf course complements this luxury resort destination because it’s designed for golfers to have fun, while still being challenged. The biggest challenge might be to remain undistracted by the phenomenal views!”
