Golf in the Bahamas

By Jim & Barbara Nicol

 

The Bahamas were originally discovered by Columbus and later colonized by the British. They were subsequently retaken by the Spain and, during one short period, by the United States. The Bahamas became a Crown Colony until independence was attained in 1973.

The Bahamas have numerous golf courses to visit. Many golfers travel to the Abaco Club on the Great Abaco Island to enjoy the Donald Steele and Tom Mackenzie fashioned course. The most exclusive golf resort in the Bahamas is the Albany Resort located in New Providence. The Albany Resort was funded by maany high-profile investors, including Tiger Woods. In addition, their are several courses in the popular destination cities of Freeport and Nassau. 

US citizens visiting the Bahamas do not need to have a passport, but proof of citizenship (birth certificate or voter registration card, accompanied by a social security card and a driver's license) is required. If you do have a passport, bring it; it will simplify things.*

Takeaway Practice The takeaway is probably the most important part of the swing so use this drill to make sure you have this first move of the swing down right
Two Different Downswing Paths From the top of the swing the right arm has to stay on top and throw around the body to the left, do not start down with your right arm pulling down.
One-Plane Impact Position The one plane swing is the way to go for consistent impacts because the clubface naturally closes on the downswing and does not require hand manipulation to square the face.
