APCA 2023 Convention

Construction, Navigator CO2 Ventures (Heartland Greenway) • James Powell, Chief Operating Officer, Summit Carbon Solutions APCA Golf Tournament 12:30 - 6:30 pm The Royal Blue Golf Club at Baha Mar features an 18-hole, 72-par Jack Nicklaus designed Signature Golf Course suitable for recreational or championship play with a unique “two courses in one” design. The Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is one of 290 courses in the world handdesigned by Jack Nicklaus himself, and the only Jack Nicklaus course in the Bahamas. Royal Blue is uniquely designed as two courses in one. The front nine holes feature dramatic views of undulating fairways, rolling white sand dunes, brackish ponds, and glimpses of a turquoise Atlantic Ocean. The back nine showcases a very different look; players navigate stunning limestone “moonscapes” through dense jungle and steep downhill terrain to get to the island green on the 16th hole, which precariously borders Lake Cunningham, making for unique island golf. The course spans 7,189 yards, and the beauty, difficulty, and challenges make the course enjoyable for golfers of all levels. $400 includes cart, box lunch, fore caddy, and taxes.

Preliminary Schedule Any Day Activity: Straw Market Shopping Here is a recommendation for when you have free time from APCA events. Right in the middle of the high-end stores and boutique shops on Nassau’s Bay Street, you’ll find the world-famous Straw Market. It is home to handmade Bahamian crafts, gifts, souvenirs, and items such as hand-woven straw hats, bags, mats, dolls, conch shell jewelry, and woodcarvings — all available at very reasonable prices, especially if you’re good at negotiating! The Nassau Straw Market is an authentic representation of an industry that has been growing throughout the Bahamas and the Caribbean since the early 1940s. Originally, the craft and skills of plaiting, braiding, and weaving were useful when Bahamians led subsistence lifestyles, with baskets being used for carrying fruit and fishing traps. But following the end of World War II, many North Americans began visiting the Bahamas for their vacations, and straw craft souvenirs soon grew in popularity. Crafts and souvenirs can be purchased with either U.S. or Bahamian currency. Transportation Taxi service is available at the hotel lobby at fixed rates. You can ask one of the bellmen to assist.
