The Ford Plantation features a premier Pete Dye-designed championship course with two distinct nine-hole challenges: the front nine is designed around 250 acres of freshwater lakes, and the back nine resembles a great Scottish links-type course, with holes placed among the Plantation's original rice fields. Mr. Dye calls his Ford course "arguably my finest southern design." The course is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar restoration under the watchful eye of Mr. Pete Dye.

One of America's finest private golf clubs, The Ford Plantation does not require tee times—members play whenever they wish. The course is challenging and plays from "executive length" short to “pro length” long, and rewards for accuracy and shot-making. And, the surrounding scenery is extraordinary—naturally beautiful with frequent sightings of bald eagles, osprey, and fox.

The Clubhouse is classic and impressive, perched on the edge of the marsh on the site of the antebellum Cherry Hill Plantation. A formal colonnade of live oaks still greets visitors as it has since the middle of the 18th century. In keeping with the best sporting clubs, the Golf Pro Shop, practice facilities, and staff are superb. A full range of programming and instruction is available to players of all skill levels.
