Imagine a day on the links free from all distractions. Not the typical cluster of homes and condos facing the course, no sounds of lawn crews working on hedges near your tee. Instead, picture well-guarded, Pinehurst-style elevated greens and space to freely swing away with your driver. Add in a stunning 72 par course design from Joe Lee and updated by Bob Cupp featuring fresh TifEagle Bermuda greens, and you’ve got the recipe for a perfect day on the links.
Notable holes on this 6,900 yard course (many claim is the longest course they’ve ever played) include the dramatic 518 yard par 5 6th hole, tucked away with a forced carry over water, offering a prime challenge for experienced and novice golfers alike. The 17th hole offers a great short par 4, giving you the options for using anything from your favorite driver to a 5 wood on the tee to tackle a forced carry to a green protected by both a bulkhead and water hazard. But the dramatic 18th hole is what most golfers talk about as one of the best finishing holes in the state. This dogleg right with water down the side lets you decide how aggressively you want to take it on.
When you’ve finished an exhilarating 18 holes, you’ll want to stop in at the Pro Shop to pick up top-of-the-line specialty items or a logo’d polo shirt, towel or visor to commemorate your visit. And, of course, if you feel like working on your shots, the practice facility offers a seven-acre driving range and a laser-leveled teeing area with five target greens.
If you’re ready for an unsurpassed golf experience, why not book a stay at The Don CeSar and schedule a tee time at Feather Sound? It’s one of the area’s best courses.
