The Abaco Club to Host's 'The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic'
The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic will be held the week of January 18-24, featuring a 132-player field and $600,000 purse, with the winner receiving a $108,000 first-place prize.

Launched in 2017, the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic is one of the season-opening events on the Tour and will include tournament rounds contested Sunday through Wednesday, with all rounds broadcast live on Golf Channel.

The Abaco Club is one of the premier venues on the Tour schedule. The Scottish-style tropical links course plays along both scenic Winding Bay and The Atlantic Ocean and stretches out to 7,111 yards.

Golf fans are invited to join the excitement at the Great Abaco Classic Pro-Am, January 17-21. This year’s Pro-Am, hosted by 2011 British Open Champion and 2016 European Ryder Cup Team Captain (and Abaco Club resident) Darren Clarke, offers two chances to play with the stars of the Tour on the club’s beautiful and award-winning Scottish-style tropical links course. Players will also enjoy golf clinics with the pros, island excursions, parties on and off the beach, and more.

The Tour is the path to the PGA TOUR, with 475 PGA TOUR victories coming from former Tour players – including 23 majors and seven PLAYERS Championships. Last year’s Great Abaco Classic champion, Andrew Landry went on to earn his PGA Tour card for 2018.
