Albany is a luxury resort community on the island of New Providence in The Bahamas, which opened October 2010. Tavistock Group, Tiger Woods, and Ernie Els created the community on approximately 600 oceanfront acres on the southwestern end of the island. Albany offers a broad array of amenities, including an Els-designed 18-hole championship golf course, a luxury boutique hotel, a family water park, an adult pool, a spa and fitness center, a children's clubhouse, a variety of restaurants and bars, and a 71-slip mega-yacht marina that will feature luxury residences designed by some of the most respected[according to whom?] architects in the world.

Albany is named after a historic pink Bahamian colonial mansion called Albany House, which was formerly owned by French film maker Jean Chalopin, the creator of the animated television series Inspector Gadget.

Albany House also served as arch villain Dimitrios’ beachfront home in the 2006 James Bond movie Casino Royale.

Many top professional golfers are members of Albany, including Els, Woods, Tim Clark, Trevor Immelman, Ian Poulter, and Justin Rose.
