The Grand Lucayan

The Bahamas, BS

COMPLETE FREEDOM

Every golfer dreams of playing in the perfect setting. The beautiful backdrop of Grand Bahama Island makes Grand Lucayan one of the most spectacular places to tee off in the world. This is as near as you'll ever get to a golfer's paradise so it's no surprise that 'The Golfer' magazine rated our resort one of the top 100 around the globe.

Designed by foremost golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr, our superb 18-hole,
par-72 championship course caters for players of every level. Beverage carts guarantee your
comfort throughout the course with refreshments and snacks. Experience the Grand Life on the
greatest of courses.

The Reef Club

The open, breezy Reef course has 6,930 yards of expansive greens and fairways, scattered with bunkers, water hazards and grassy rough. This links-style course stretches almost 7,000 yards from the back trees and only requires a solid, short game to achieve a low score. The close-cropped fairways are forgiving, but the bunkers will test you. The greens are large and mostly flat, with a deceptive speed and 13 of the 18 holes play off water.

Course Highlights

  • Par 72 Championship Golf Course
  • 57 bunkers, 11 lakes and open fairways, with water coming into play on 13 of the 18 holes
  • Beverage carts available throughout the course for refreshments and snacks
  • Friendly clubhouse bar open daily (two minutes from the resort entrance)
  • Callaway & Cobra Graphite & Steelshaft clubs available for rent, subject to availability
  • Putting green and chipping green.
  • Pro lessons available at the Reef Club course (prior booking essential)

Be a beach connoisseur.

Paris may have the world's greatest works of art, but Grand Bahama most certainly has the world's finest collection of beaches. Take a sunrise walk down our own private Lucaya Beach. Visit Fortune Beach, where treasure hunters recently found a $2 million dollar shipwreck. Escape to complete isolated privacy in Paradise Cove at Deadman's Reef. Swing by Xanadu beach for an icy local Kalik beer and some spicy local BBQ... Or, explore Gold Rock Beach at Lucayan National Park, which is known to many connoisseurs to be the most spectacular beach of all.

Immerse yourself.

When you're smack dab in the middle of a Caribbean aquatic wonderland, its easy to become a bit amphibious here. Go for a lazy afternoon swim (think 80º water temps), kayak through the mangroves of Gold Rock Beach or dive for lost Spanish treasure at Deadman's Reef. Feeling a bit more adventurous? Join the local Underwater Explorer Society and frolic with wild Dolphins at an offshore reef. Need more thrills? Grab your courage and sign up for one of the island's legendary shark-feeding tours. You'll come home with photos and stories to last a lifetime!

Dining

Prepare to indulge. At Grand Lucayan, seven restaurants cater to your every culinary whim. From classic Bahamian fare like conch fritters, benny cake and guava duff to an array of international cuisine that melds flavors from the Mediterranean to the Pacific Rim, our dedication to quality and originality shines through in every dish. Our fresh-caught seafood is prepared so imaginatively that even the locals stop by to savor it.

From homemade pasta at Churchill's and exotic Hong Kong roast duck at China Beach to Willy Broadleaf's true culinary melting pot, dining is one of the things we do best. And, of course, no trip to Grand Bahama Island is complete without a Goombay Punch at our festive Bahamian Buffet and Fish Fry.

About Resort

The Grand Lucayan

Bell Channel Bay, Freeport, Bahamas

Imagine a place where lush green lawns stretch toward powder-soft white sand.

Coconut palms sway in a fragrant breeze and crystal-clear turquoise waters lap gently along the shore. There's no impatient crowds, no rush to grab beach chairs, no boring restaurants. At Grand Lucayan, we work to strike the perfect balance between the luxuries of a modern-day resort and the magic of one steeped in Bahamian culture. For us, it's about delivering an experience that exudes authenticity yet welcomes the creature comforts that make traveling a pleasure and a passion.

This is the Bahamas at its laid-back best. It feels real because it is. It's the Bahamas you remember, wrapped in a resort you'll never forget.
