The Ford Plantation

USA, Georgia
Designer: Pete Dye
Course Opened: 1988

Nestled on the Ogeechee River—just outside of historic Savannah—lies The Ford Plantation—a premier private sporting club and residential community. This 1,800-acre premier sporting community boasts Pete Dye Golf, a 22-stall equestrian center, deep water access marina, fishing, family-friendly pursuits, spa, fitness center and culinary traditions that will satisfy the most discerning foodie. 

The Ford Plantation features a relaxed Southern lifestyle providing a respite from the outside world, among acres of protected wetlands, abundant wildlife and the serenity of graceful Live Oaks. The story of The Ford Plantation is told through simple details and personal interactions on every level. It’s truly—uncommon living.

 

Playing 7,400 yards from the tips, The Ford Plantation's members wanted a course that was fun for golfers at every level. What Dye created was one of 2014’s greatest restorations. And it folds perfectly into the way golf is played at The Ford Plantation. Members play without even the thought of a tee time. If your idea of fun is facing a real challenge, by all means head to the black tees. If you just want to enjoy the beauty of the course, play the spectacular back nine in the late afternoon with its breathtaking views and epic wildlife.
