Baha Mar, the $3.5 billion integrated gaming resort opening in the Spring of 2015 in Nassau, The Bahamas, has partnered with the PGA TOUR’s TPC Network to announce TPC at Baha Mar. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is the TPC Network’s first Caribbean golf course and will be a complement to the resort’s elite collection of hotel brands – The Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®, Grand Hyatt and SLS LUX – as well as an ESPA spa and a myriad of other remarkable experiences.
“We are very proud that TPC at Baha Mar is the newest property in the PGA TOUR’s prestigious TPC Network of resort and private golf courses,” said Sarkis Izmirlian, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Baha Mar. “We’re committed to looking for the most extraordinary partners from around the world, whether it is at tee time or dinner time, to bring the best of the best to our guests at the new Bahamian Riviera.”
“The PGA TOUR is thrilled to expand the TPC Network’s brand presence into the Caribbean for the first time by partnering with Baha Mar’s visionary resort destination,” said Charlie Zink, PGA TOUR Co-Chief Operating Officer. “TPC at Baha Mar truly epitomizes the standard of excellence and tournament-hosting capabilities for which TPC courses are recognized worldwide.”
Receiving the ongoing, hands-on personal attention of legendary golf course designer Jack Nicklaus, the 7,189-yard TPC at Baha Mar blends beauty, challenge, playability, and memorable aesthetics. Offering “two courses in one,” with the front nine providing dramatic play highlighted by ocean views and other water features, and a back nine that winds through in-land forest of native habitat and an unexpected amount of natural topography, the course features bunker placement and green design that incorporate the contours of the local landscape while creating a scenic golf course to be enjoyed by a broad variety of players.
The design of TPC at Baha Mar made a point to focus on preservation and has recently registered as a member of the Audubon International Classic Program, actively seeking certification from the environmental education organization dedicated to providing people with the education and assistance they need to practice responsible management of land, water, wildlife, and other natural resources. To that end, the golf course’s salt-tolerant Platinum Tiff Eagle Paspalam turf grass will be irrigated with treated water from the resort. Additionally, the course is home to 15 species of native trees, including protected Mahogany, Silk Cotton, Caribbean Pine and Buttonwood, as well as Red and Black Mangroves. More than 70 species of birds, including the Bahama Woodstar, Egret, and Osprey can also be found on the course while the wildlife in the surrounding lake includes Terrapin and Mosquito fish species. A hidden cave with a protected family of indigenous bats has also been preserved within the course.
When it comes to rest and relaxation before or after play, the Royal Blue Clubhouse, highlighted by its traditional Bahamian architecture, features a bar and grill restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. The clubhouse also includes an open courtyard overlooking the golf course, as well as locker rooms and a golf shop.
The addition of TPC at Baha Mar to the PGA TOUR’s TPC Network signifies the continued growth of the TPC brand, following the October 2014 opening of TPC Cartagena at Karibana, located in Cartagena, Colombia. TPC at Baha Mar will open in the Spring of 2015 and is the 33rd inclusion to the TPC Network of clubs and the second international property in the portfolio.
