Course of the Week: Albany CC

Zack Follow Through Albany CC.jpg

This week’s Course of The Week features the home of the Hero World Challenge hosted by Tiger Woods, Albany CC. Site of Jon Rahm’s 2nd PGA Tour victory, this par 72 Ernie Els design course is a desert style-links golf course in The Bahamas.

The fairways are a traditional open and rolling links design, offering opportunity for players and weekend warriors alike to hit the fairway. You will need to navigate sand off the tee, however the fairways are not the hardest part of this golf course. Missing the greens here is not something this golf course will be forgiving about. With pothole bunkers, extreme drop offs, and desert fescue, hitting your most accurate iron in to greens will be your best opportunity to make par. Since missing on the correct side is important on this course, use the TrackMan hole layout to see exactly where you don’t want to slice or pull-hook it.

While we can’t recreate the beautiful weather of The Bahamas here at Pure Drive Golf, we do offer the opportunity to play one of the Caribbean’s finest golf courses. Be sure to reserve your simulator rental today and play Albany CC, a beautiful track with challenges for all levels of players.
