The Abaco Club

The Abaco Club | The Bahamas

The Abaco Club on Winding Bay is a private, international sporting club nestled along 2.5 miles of pristine beach. The club’s “tropical links” golf course is perennially ranked the #1 course in The Bahamas, and the club offers a range of other amenities—from seaside dining to spa services, tennis, boating and other water sports, and world-class fishing.

Island Homes

The homes at The Abaco Club range from grand oceanfront estate homes to luxurious oceanview cottages to cozy Bahamian cabanas. Each merges symbiotically with its stunning island surroundings to offer an elegant yet comfortable retreat from all of life’s travails. This is getting away from it all on a grand scale—in a community unlike any other.

Miles of Beach

The Abaco Club’s powder-soft, white-sand beach extends over 2 miles and offers the perfect place to swim, stroll, relax or set off on an unforgettable water adventure in the vivid, crystal-clear water. Visitors especially love kayaking or paddleboarding to Winding Bay’s own Sugar Cay, which is home to a population of friendly sea turtles.

Tropical Links Golf

The Club’s 18-hole golf course is consistently ranked No. 1 in The Bahamas, thanks to its unique Scottish-style “tropical links” design. Classic links design features abound, from the pot bunkers that dot its rugged location in the dunes to the challenging, sloping greens. Designed to play firm and fast, this course is not your usual Caribbean holiday course. Bring your A-game—and your camera.

A Sportsman's Paradise

The waters surrounding The Abaco Club are teeming with world-class opportunities for fishing enthusiasts. Saltwater fly fishing is a serious sport in these parts. Bonefish and permit are wary adversaries. In deeper water just minutes from the dock, you can go after marlin, tuna, mahi mahi, barracuda, grouper, wahoo and many others.
