First-ever PGA Village outside U.S. planned

The first PGA Village to be developed outside the borders of the United States will be built on Cat Island in the Bahamas.

The PGA Village at The Bahamas will be a partnership between the PGA of America, local investor Cat Island Partners Ltd. and Southworth Development and its management arm, Southworth Golf.

The first of two planned 18-hole courses at PGA Village will be designed by architect Rees Jones. Southworth will develop the Cat Island Golf & Beach Resort and Southworth Golf will manage the golf and resort operations.

In addition to the golf and resort, the PGA Village will include a PGA Learning Center, PGA Historical Center, luxury hotel and condominium and condohotel units. The masterplanned community will also include a casino, tennis center, beach club and low-density single-family residential units, as well as village town homes.

The Bahamas development will be the third PGA Village property, joining the original PGA Village at Port St. Lucie, Fla., and the recently opened PGA Village at Coyote Springs near Las Vegas.
