Jim McLean golf course comes to The Westin and Sheraton at Our Lucaya Beach & Golf Resort, Grand

Guests at The Westin and Sheraton at Our Lucaya Beach & Golf Resort on Grand Bahama Island can learn to play like a PGA pro at the new Jim McLean School of Golf. Set to open this January 2005, the number-one ranked program has five resort locations from coast-to-coast in the U.S. Our Lucaya will be the school’s first international location.
Ê
“The championship courses at The Westin and Sheraton at Our Lucaya are top-notch,” said Jim McLean. “We are looking forward to offering guests here the best golf experience in The Bahamas.”
Ê
Using Jim McLean’s proven Eight Step Swing System for achieving a great swing, master instructors teach students techniques used by the most successful golfers today. Computers and cameras analyse a student’s swing - and the school provides a “before and after” DVD for students to keep as a record of their progress.
Ê
Jim McLean at Our Lucaya is the only Caribbean golf school that is home to one of the top three instructors in the world. Students will also enjoy state-of-the-art instruction facilities, a practice putting green with bunker and chipping areas, covered teaching bays and a teaching seminar area.
Ê
The school - rated number one by CNN - will be located at Our Lucaya’s 6,824-yard Lucayan Course. Opened in 1962, the course features tree-lined holes and fast, well-bunkered greens. Demanding accuracy and shot-making ability, it carries a slope of 128 and a course rating of 72.1.
Ê
Golfers on Grand Bahama Island will find a completely different experience at the resort’s 6,930-yard Reef Course, opened in October 2000. The course offers wide fairways flanked by strategically placed bunkers. Thirteen of the Reef’s 18 holes are bordered by water.
Ê
“Each course offers unique challenges that will help guests get the most out of their experience with Jim McLean’s instructors,” said Amaury Piedra, resort manager at Our Lucaya.

The school is designed to help golfers at all levels and offers great flexibility in its programming. Guests can choose from a variety of options, from a 60-minute private lesson to intense multi-day schools. Corporate clinics with rotating stations and custom-designed sessions are also available.
Ê
“Whether you’re a vacationer in Grand Bahama Island with plenty of time to tee off, or a meeting planner organising an afternoon group activity, we can customise the school to whatever and whenever you want to play,” Piedra said.
