New Bahamian Golf Course to Incorporate Cave
A new 18-hole Baha Mar golf course being developed near Nassau in the Bahamas plans to turn a cave discovered on the course into a “point of interest”.
Reportedly containing fragments of tools, pottery and bone that date back hundreds of years to the pre-Columbus era, the cave was discovered when the $2.6 billion development performed a survey of the land.
It will be part of the golf course experience. We’ll develop interpretative materials and signage. As you walk the trail of the golf course, you’ll see the signs. They’ll be a buffer between the cave and the course. But it will explain the history of the cave, and what is interesting about it and how it relates to the culture of The Bahamas.

Currently home to a colony of fruit bats, the cave itself will be off-limits to guests once the resort opens in 2014.
