Ford Plantation Golf Club (The), Private, 912-756-2742
The Ford Plantation features a premier Pete Dye-designed championship course with two distinct nine-hole challenges: the front nine is designed around 250 acres of freshwater lakes, and the back nine resembles a great Scottish links-type course, with holes placed among the Plantation’s original rice fields. Mr. Dye calls his Ford course “arguably my finest southern design.”
One of America’s finest private golf clubs, The Ford Plantation does not require tee times—members play whenever they wish. The course is challenging and plays from “executive length” short to “pro length” long, and rewards for accuracy and shot-making. And, the surrounding scenery is extraordinary—naturally beautiful with frequent sightings of bald eagles, osprey, and fox.
