TGR Design to design a short course with Jack’s Bay Developers on Eleuthera Island, Bahamas
Jack’s Bay is located in Rock Sound on the island of Eleuthera, which means “freedom” in Greek, and lies just 279 miles southeast of the Florida coast. The development will be home to the region’s first Tiger Woods-designed golf course, and will afford residents and members the boundless freedom, luxury and adventure of paradise, as well as the legendary hospitality of the Bahamas.
“I am honored to be part of this spectacular project in paradise,” said Woods. “The amazing convergence of land and sea calls for an equally unique and incredible golf experience that TGR Design can deliver. The golf course complements this luxury resort destination because it’s designed for golfers to have fun, while still being challenged. The biggest challenge might be to remain undistracted by the phenomenal views!”
Jack’s Bay promises luxury lifestyle opportunities that are unmatched anywhere in the Caribbean, with development currently underway on The Pink House, Pink Sand Bar, The Playgrounds — the aforementioned 10-hole short course designed by Tiger Woods’ TGR Design — and more amenities planned for 2018. These amenities will ultimately encompass a myriad of residential resort features comprising oceanfront suites, cottages, and villas, all with the impeccable Bahamian style and Eleutheran elegance that is the resort’s hallmark.
Jack’s Bay Developers, chaired by Sir Franklyn Wilson, KCMG, is owned by some of the most well-known entities in the Bahamas and an impressive array of U.S. investors. Sir Franklyn said, “Bringing Beacon and Tiger to this residential resort opportunity in the Bahamas is nothing short of remarkable. Uniting the rich Bahamian cultural heritage and Eleuthera’s unmatched beauty, with the luxury assured by Beacon and Tiger, makes this exceptionally unique.”
This extraordinary development embodies Beacon Land Development’s founding principle, to encourage people to pause, relax, and create the memories of a lifetime. Jack’s Bay provides an idyllic setting in which to do just that. Michael Abbott, President of Beacon Land Development, was drawn to the project by the distinctive features and exceptional beauty of the island.
“We have a responsibility to the land and to the Bahamian community at large,” said Abbott. “Jack’s Bay is special because of the people. Now we have the opportunity to share our collective vision with the people of Eleuthera as well as the rest of the world. We are grateful to Sir Franklyn Wilson for his partnership, and we are extremely motivated to curate another golf course experience with Tiger and his team. We are all committed to delivering unique spaces in special places.”
Uniting pink powdery sand beaches, crystalline waters, and the pristine beauty of Eleuthera with unparalleled personalized hospitality, Jack’s Bay promises limitless opportunities for fun, rest, relaxation, rejuvenation and adventure in paradise!
