TRIPS DISCOVER | 19 of the World’s Most Spectacular Golf CoursesFriday, August 28, 2020
The Abaco Club, on Winding Bay about 150 miles east of Miami in the Bahamas, is a private course and the first Scottish-style links course in the world set in a tropical location. The extraordinary course designed by Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie is nestled on a peninsula at the edge of turquoise waters and an expansive, powdery soft sand beach. Each of its 18 holes blends into the natural setting of the Caribbean, attracting golf enthusiasts and professionals alike. The 18th hole alone is especially amazing, set along the shoreline 60 feet above the crashing surf. The only downside is that the dramatic setting can be distracting from the game.
