Emerald Reef Golf
• Championship Course
Greg Norman (2003) 18 Holes - 7,001 yds - Par 72 - SSS 74.1 - Slope 140 (Back tees)
A golfer’s dream, this 18-hole, 7,001-yard course, designed by Australian golf legend Greg Norman, has been names among the best in the Caribbean by Travel & Leisure Golf. Placing the front nine holes through scenic mangroves, Greg Norman took advantage of the landscape’s natural barriers. The back nine holes offer challenges of a different nature where the sea views create ample distractions from the focus of the game. This ever-changing course presents a challenging experience for novice and professional golfers alike. While most courses feature one signature hole, Emerald Bay has six, which edge a rocky coastline and are surrounded by turquoise waters as far as the eye can see. Golfers will experience a new game each time they play and there are five different tee boxes to accommodate all skill levels.
“Built along a headland on the eastern shores of Great Exuma, the Emerald Reef course is the Caribbean's answer to Pebble Beach in California. In fact – and whisper it quietly – with six signature holes that hug the ocean, for sheer aesthetic appeal, this Bahamian course might even surpass it."

It has an intriguing past. Pirates used Georgetown’s deep water harbor during the 17th century and the “plantation aristocracy” from Virginia and North and South Carolina settled here in the 18th century. Elizabeth Harbor became a refitting base for British vessels and the U.S. Navy used the port during World War II.
