A traditional style layout built on the site of a former rice plantation, this beautiful and challenging 18-hole Championship course has been compared to Pinehurst #2 in its straightforward presentation of challenge. Spacious fairways, generous greens and staggered tees give everyone a chance to enjoy the layout. However, with water in play at half of the holes and massive oaks often standing between golfer and green, an ability to work the ball is required to score well. The greens are medium-sized and have some undulation. The signature hole is #10, a 372-yard, par 4, requiring a shot over a wetland area to an elevated green. Tee times and rates vary; contact the club or check the website.

Golf fans are happy to send their kids off with a handful of tokens and practice their swing at the Golf Range. The Pizza Shop on site lets you spend the whole day playing.
