Great news for golf fanatics in search of the next big challenge – elite Caribbean hideaway Over Yonder Cay has just finished work on a brand new, nine-hole golf course which promises challenges for experts and absolute beginners alike!

Forming what must be the world’s most exotic golf course, Over Yonder Cay’s nine-hole, par three course takes guests on an unforgettable tour of the island’s entirety, snaking between 72 acres of stunning sea views and incredible island landscapes.

Located in the heart of the Bahamas’ exclusive Exumas archipelago, Over Yonder Cay is an extra-special island escape, boasting first-class facilities and enviable eco-credentials. Shared by no more than 28 guests at a time, the 72-acre former fishing outpost has been tastefully transformed into a dramatic showplace for stunning architectural design and cutting-edge green energy technology.

The island’s strict environmental ethos informed the decision to team up with synthetic golf green manufacturer Tour Greens® for the construction of the course. Requiring neither pesticide treatment nor intrusive irrigation work; the course’s superior-grade synthetic turf has been selected in order to provide outstanding and reliable green surface in the tropical climate.

“We are excited to be able to offer our guests a pretty unique golfing experience on a surface that matches up to the same level as traditional grass. There are few places in the world where you can tee off surrounded by the rugged azure water and limestone landscape on your own private island. Golfers will be queuing up to enjoy a round here,” said Duncan Hipkin, Over Yonder Cay’s manager.

If a long day’s golfing isn’t your cup of “tee”, however – fear not. Over Yonder Cay offers an impressive array of other activities certain to keep non-golfers occupied too, with everything from floodlit tennis, a sensual spa, a luxurious 12-seater movie theater and much, much more.
