PGA Breaks Ground on Cat Island

PGA Village on Cat Island
PGA is developing the first golf course development outside of the United States on Cat Island.  The 1,906 acre development broke ground in April 2009 and includes two 18 hole championship golf courses, a casino, a 5-Star hotel, a tennis center, residential homes and a full service beach club.  According to several news stories, PGA has over $60M into the project.

The Nassau Guardian reported that Prime Minister Perry Christie confirmed the snags which delayed the $220M PGA Village development have been ironed out.

The PGA developer also revealed plans for a new $16M airport expansion in October 2012 and on September 3, 2013 the Planning Department approved plans for the new terminal.  

The new airport will have a 7,000 ft. runway that is designed to accommodate an Airbus A320S capable of seating 80-100 passengers.
