Paradise Islands’s Famed ONE&ONLY Ocean Club Resort Offers World-Class Golf
World-class golf awaits ardent lovers of the game at the legendary One&Only Ocean Club resort on Paradise Island in The Bahamas. Unveiled in December 2000, the Tom Weiskopf designed 18-hole Ocean Club Golf Course is a major attraction at the resort.
Set on the eastern end of the island, Weiskopf’s 7159 yard scenic par 72 course takes advantage of the magnificent Bahamian landscape and island cross winds, challenging golfers’ precision and accuracy. The Ocean Club Golf Course offers panoramic views of the lush course and cerulean waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Nassau Harbor including the spectacular drivable Hole 17 which plays entirely along the scenic Snorkelers Cove making this 18-hole course totally unique in the marketplace today. The golf course attracts every caliber of golfer, and challenges even the most experienced of players, luring them back again and again. The course has played host to the annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational since 2000.
“My goal was to design the best course in the Caribbean,” commented Tom Weiskopf. “The classic design of the resort, coupled with the spirit of Paradise Island, creates an ideal backdrop for a golf course that I feel is memorable, dramatic and presents a fair challenge to all levels of golfers,” said Sol Kerzner, Chairman and CEO of Kerzner International. “We chose Tom to design the Ocean Club Golf Course because of his dedication to quality and design. The design reflects the continuing legacy of the resort, providing a classic and memorable course for our guests.”
Weiskopf, an internationally recognized PGA and Senior PGA professional golfer, has designed 41 courses since 1983 in destinations throughout the U.S., as well as South Africa, Japan, Scotland, and the Philippines. Recognized by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine for his characteristic interpretation of traditional golf course design, Weiskopf’s vision reflects an understanding of the relationship between design and its impact on the outdoor experience and environment. Troon Golf, a U.S.-based high-end golf development, marketing, and management company involved in several of Weiskopf’s other projects, has been retained to manage the Ocean Club Golf Course.
