Located in a luxury community in New Providence, the Albany Golf Course opened in 2010. It’s been hosting the Hero World Challenge since 2015 and is one of the longer courses on the PGA Tour, meaning elite ball strikers will have an advantage off of the tee.

Below, we’ll give an overview of the course, a summary of the front and back nine, along with the 2023 Hero World Challenge scorecard.

Hero World Challenge Scorecard

The course was designed by Ernie Els. He created a masterpiece 18-hole championship course that combines both links and desert features with dunes and water hazards. The course is meant to challenge players but also providing a scenic backdrop in the Bahamas.

There are multiple par 3s that the field will have to keep an eye out for, including hole No.2 and No.17.

The second hole at Albany is similar to the 13th at Muirfield, which cuts into a dune. While the 17th has the ocean wrapped around the left side with slopes at the front of the green that could turn any shot into a wet one.

The 13th par 4 is less than 300 yards but has a split fairway that will temp golfers to drive the green. However a miss would set up a very hard second shot.
