Baker’s Bay Golf & Ocean Club - The Bahamas’ Most Exclusive Club
Baker’s Bay Golf & Ocean Club is a one-of-a-kind community that spans more than 600 acres in the stunning Great Guana Cay in the Bahamas. The club, developed by Discovery Land Company, features an 18-hole Tom Fazio-designed golf course, six and a half majestic miles of sugar-white beach, world-class farm-to-table cuisine sourced with organic produce grown on-site, a luxurious spa, and a variety of more than 300 residences to suit every lifestyle, whether in the heart of Marina Village or tucked into the Atlantic coastline.
Baker’s Bay is equipped with 24/7 gated security, on-site medical services, and an extraordinary Member Services team. The club also features Discovery’s signature Outdoor Pursuits program, an outdoor adventure concierge for land and sea activities for all ages and abilities, with activities such as swimming with stingrays or kiteboarding. The Beach Club is the social hub of the community, with private cabanas, beach firepits, a dining room, Dune Bar, and the Atlantic Club restaurant. Members can arrive to Baker’s Bay by flying into Marsh Harbour and boating directly to the property or by taking a seaplane to land on the property’s private sea plane dock.
Golf at Baker’s Bay
Known for its coveted “barefoot golf,” players enjoy a laidback experience with no dress code or rules. The Tom Fazio-designed championship course features dramatic water views from 12 of the 18 holes. Between hole 5 and 16, players will find the Sip Sip, a comfort station with everything from snacks and sandwiches to fresh grilled fish and burgers. In between the kid’s park and tennis and pickleball courts is the comfort station known as ‘Jelly Bean’, and on the eighth hole sits the Casamigos Bar and Taqueria overlooking Casa Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on the property. On the menu, thirsty golfers will find Casamigos beverages along with homemade tortilla chips, guacamole, pico de gallo, conch ceviche, local red snapper aquachile, fresh fish tacos, cauliflower tacos, and a variety of meat options.
With a 12-and-a-half-foot clearance at mean low tide, the 33-acre, 200-slip, full-service, deep-water marina allows vessels up to 250 feet in length to safely navigate the facility – arriving at the property can be as simple as easing into your slip. Upon arrival, members will sip a specialty Casamigos cocktail while traveling via golf cart to clear customs in under ten minutes. On the docks, members enjoy a full array of services and amenities in the Marina Village, including the Fitness Center, Market deli-style restaurant, BLU Boutique and the Conch Shack bar, and dock services like potable water, a fish-cleaning station, power, full internet and cable and security.
Whether by yacht or in residence, those staying in the lively Marina Village are provided with a warm and welcoming environment, which serves as both a social hub and a provisioning site. The neighborhood offers the Conch Shack, serving as a central gathering place with a waterfront bar and grill; the Market for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as prepared foods and light provisions; BLU Boutique to peruse resort wear and gifts for the whole family; a fitness center; the Discovery Design Center, which serves as a hub for new owners designing their new island home; and Member Services, a dedicated team available to take care of all member needs.

Outdoor Pursuits at Baker’s Bay
The Outdoor Pursuits concierge recreation team are an integral part of the Baker’s Bay lifestyle. Known for their incredible spear fishing and bone fishing, the Outdoor Pursuits team will work with you to explore your interests and then develop an itinerary, make all necessary arrangements, and often serve as your personal guide. Activities include sport and bottom fishing, free diving, scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, island hopping, kite surfing, surfing, wakeboarding, wake surfing and tubing.
Ranked among the top bone fishing destinations in the world, OP’s saltwater fly fishing experience is taking over Baker’s Bay. Welcoming everyone from beginners to experts, the Outdoor Pursuits team will skillfully guide members to the best areas for an unforgettable day of fishing. Green Turtle Key to the west of Baker’s offers accessible flats for close by bonefishing. Alternatively, adventurers may choose to spend the day fishing the whole 120 miles of Abaco from Sandy Point to Crown Haven.
“You can fish in the morning, golf in the afternoon, and have an amazing day,” says bone fishing expert Geoffrey Jones. “We’ve made more fisherman from members than golfers.”
Baker’s Bay is especially focused on sustainably growing and sourcing its own produce and culinary ingredients. The property’s organic farm grows an array of seasonal fruits and vegetables, sustaining the community’s program since its opening despite the challenges of shipping and procuring ingredients. Additionally, members can grow their own produce for a true farm-to-table experience at home.
