Get Out and Golf on Fripp Island
Golf is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather. Here on Fripp Island, we have two different courses open year round that are perfect for anyone looking to hit the links with their friends or family for the day.
Ocean Creek Golf Club
The Ocean Creek Golf Course opened in 1995 and was designed by PGA Champion Davis Love III and Paul Cowley. This course is more than just golf, however, as it takes golfers through salt water marshes, fresh water lagoons, lush vegetation and four rolling dunes which are all sights to behold of themselves. The landscape is actually so beautiful that it has even attracted movie studios to film such movies as “Forest Gump” and “The Jungle Book.”
While on the course, you may also have a chance to say hello to such animals as egrets, osprey, heron and deer. So if you are a wildlife enthusiast, then this course is perfect for you. Need more convincing? Ocean Creek Golf Club was named one of the 10 Best New Courses in America by Golf Digest the year it opened, as well as receiving a 4.5-star rating from them.
Opened in 1964, Ocean Point Golf Links was designed by George Cobb, who was the design consultant for Augusta National, where The Masters are played every year. The course is a par 72 and features well-bunkered small greens that place a huge emphasis on accurate striking with the irons.
Much like Ocean Creek Golf Club, Ocean Point features numerous beautiful views including several holes that face the Atlantic Ocean. It has received a 4-star rating from Golf Digest and was also named a Golden Links Award winner, making it a must-golf destination for anyone in the area.
