PGA is developing the first golf course development outside of the United States on Cat Island. The 1,906 acre development broke ground in April 2009 and includes two 18 hole championship golf courses, a casino, a 5-Star hotel, a tennis center, residential homes and a full service beach club. According to several news stories, PGA has over $60M into the project.
The Nassau Guardian reported that Prime Minister Perry Christie confirmed the snags which delayed the $220M PGA Village development have been ironed out.
The PGA Village® The Bahamas is the first PGA Village to be located outside the United States, making it one of just three in the entire world. Featuring architecture reminiscent of the picturesque Greek isles, it is at the heart of this Cat Island Golf and Beach Resort community. This is where every day’s adventure begins and memories are made. Home to a PGA Golf Club centered on an 18-hole Rees Jones designed championship golf course (one of two planned courses), Live-Work Community, PGA Learning and Perfomance Center, PGA Historical Center and PGA Grille, it is a compelling destination for aficionados of the world’s greatest game.
Cat Island’s perfect climate makes it possible for real estate owners and guests to take advantage of the signature golf course at the PGA Village® The Bahamas every day. For those new to the game or who wish to improve it, the PGA Learning Center represents a not-to-be-missed experience. One of the world’s largest and most advanced practice facilities, it re-creates actual scenarios found in golf – including fairway target areas, practice greens, chipping areas, and nine different types of bunkers – plus, provides expansive private practice stations. A fascinating game that has thrilled players since the 1600s, golf’s history and competitive spirit comes to life at the PGA Historical Center, located within the clubhouse. Also home to men’s and women’s locker rooms, pro shop and PGA Grille for casual dining, the clubhouse is the ideal spot for meeting friends or making new ones.
Vision, experience, and a dedication to uncompromising standards are at the foundation of every great community. Equally important is the emphasis placed on creating neighborhoods and recreational settings in harmony with the land. The partnership behind Cat Island Golf and Beach Resort unites some of the most talented and respected players within the golf resort and real estate development industry to create a community that will delight generations to come.
The community plan features thoughtful and meticulous design that results in low impact to the environment, low rise building profiles, and low density home sites. In short, it preserves those special features which make Cat Island Golf and Beach Resort's real estate so attractive and unique. Combined with many benefits associated with the PGA brand, it’s what makes owning a home, condominium, or vacation destination at Cat Island Golf and Beach Resort so satisfying.
