Sunny days, uncrowded beaches, and two sensational seaside courses. They all await you at Fripp Island Golf & Beach Resort, the picturesque barrier set between Hilton Head Island and Charleston, South Carolina.
As do the new paspalum fairways, tees and greens at the resort’s Ocean Creek course. The new turf is so thick and smooth it acts like tiny tees holding your ball at precisely the right height. This is the same turf you saw on Kiawah’s Ocean Course during last year’s PGA Championship. Especially suited to the Lowcountry’s climate, paspalum is very salt water tolerant and keeps its rich, dark green color.
The new turf is the icing on the cake for the resort’s highly ranked layouts. Both George Cobb’s Ocean Point Golf Links (which has enjoyed paspalum for years) and Davis Love III’s Ocean Creek course offer stunning views. (If you’re a Forest Gump fan you’ll recognize the landscape from the movie.) And both feature five sets of tees, including their Wee-Links tees, allowing you to bring the whole family out for a round. Walking is allowed on both courses, too.
If you can get here before December 31, you can take advantage of their $115 Golf Special. That rate includes nightly accommodations, 18 holes a day (plus replays based on availability), free range balls, and a cart. The price is based on four or more golfers.
Whenever you get here, be sure to leave plenty of time to enjoy the resort that LINKS Magazine named one of the "100 Best Golf Resorts" in North America. In addition to golf, there are 3-1/2 miles of unspoiled white sand beach, plus tennis, fishing, kayaking, and swimming. From oceanfront homes to golf cottages, the accommodations are as spectacular as the scenery.
