A 23-acre expanse of manicured grounds awaits soaring range balls at Wedges & Woods, a facility that houses a 300-yard driving range, short-game practice areas, and a pro shop. Golfers can line up their swings at any of the 40 hitting stations, including 10 covered stations outfitted with fans and lighting. Golfers can also work on finessing their shots at the short-game facility, where they’ll be able to aim at target greens and target caddies who have been inaccurate in their on-course distance readings.

Nestled several miles north of Augusta National Golf Club, the 27-hole course complex at Mount Vintage Plantation Golf Club resembles golf’s most hallowed grounds in ways that extend beyond geographical proximity. Designed by Tom Jackson, the course rolls through curtains of carolina pines, speckling nearly 2,000 acres with white-sand bunkers and scenic water features that test the accuracy of every swing.

The two original nines, the Chester and the Vintage, shine with visually stunning vistas and elevation changes—on the Vintage course alone, 8 holes boast a rise or fall of 30 feet or more. Opened in 2008—eight years after its forebears—the Independent course puts water in play on all but 1 hole, testing golfers’ abilities to manage high-pressure shots or skip balls close to pins.
