(Rock Sound, Bahamas) August 28, 2020 – Tiger Woods and Jack’s Bay Company, developers of the new Jack’s Bay private club and community in Rock Sound, Eleuthera, Bahamas, opened The Playground, a spectacular 10-hole, par-3 golf course created by Woods’ TGR Design. The Playground is the first of the club’s major recreational amenities to open with others to follow shortly.
Carefully crafted by one of the greatest talents in the history of golf, The Playground is intended to bring the pure enjoyment of the game to generations of players. The short course sits atop a dramatic bluff, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Holes range in length from 55 to 170 yards and can be played in a variety of configurations, making it fun for families and friends, yet capable of challenging the game’s best players. Adding to the experience is Saltspray, a bar, restaurant, and golf retail shop. With beautiful views of the Playground and the bluff. Here members will find snacks, drinks, and five-star dining in an air-conditioned location prepared by our culinary team.
“It is great to be part of this spectacular project in paradise,” said Woods. “The natural terrain and coastline are incredibly beautiful and call for an equally spectacular golf experience. The golf course complements the true spirit of Jack’s Bay development because it’s designed for golfers to have fun, foster friendships, and create memories within an unforgettable setting.”
Located 279 miles SE of the Florida coast, Jack’s Bay is a spectacular 1200-acre property with 2 ½ miles of Atlantic Ocean frontage just 10 minutes from Rock Sound International Airport. The community will offer approximately 500 residences including artfully designed golf and club villas, club suites, and spacious estate lots. The ruggedly beautiful property features bluffs with elevations of up to 80 feet, offering sweeping views of the Atlantic, as well as spectacular pink-sand beaches.
Jack’s Bay Company is chaired by Sir Franklyn Wilson, KCMG, and is owned by some of the most well-known entities in the Bahamas and an impressive array of investors.
“Bringing Tiger to this private membership community opportunity in the Bahamas is nothing short of remarkable,” said Sir Franklyn. “Uniting the rich Bahamian cultural heritage and Eleuthera’s unmatched beauty, with the skill and attention to detail brought to the table by Tiger Woods and TGR Design, makes this an exceptional opportunity.”
CEO, Mr. Richard Browning said “One of our secrets at Jack’s Bay is time. We have taken the time to create a unique golf experience for our members and their families. Nothing has been rushed, and everything has been taken into consideration. From the design of the Playground to the activities available on the Playground for families to enjoy. Thought has been placed into the overall experience while at Jack’s Bay to ensure that the time with us is enjoyable. We are pleased to have a golf course designed by Tiger Woods on the property. In this beautiful space that Mother Nature has given us our focus is not on property but lifestyle, which is priceless.”
In addition to The Playground, Tiger Woods and TGR Design have been engaged to create a spectacular 18-hole, championship-caliber golf course at Jack’s Bay. Design work is currently underway, and the course will be developed as the community matures. Other soon to open amenities include a thoughtfully designed clubhouse, tennis facility, adventure program, and sustainable aquaponic farm for true organic farm-to-table dining experiences.
