The Trails at Chickasaw Point abuts an outstretched branch of Choestoea Creek, the waterway that separates Georgia from South Carolina. Despite this waterfront real estate, most of the gated community's 18-hole course itself is shrouded in dense foliage, creating a distinct feeling of solitude on each hole and making the links a great spot for workshopping unfinished hole-in-one dance choreography. During the brief respites from deep-forest fairways, groups still have to get by water hazards such as a handful of ponds and a wandering stream.
Since opening a sea of trees and sculpting its fairways in 1971, the nine-hole course at Woodhaven Golf Club & Learning Center has enabled beginners to make a smooth foray into the game and more seasoned players to hone their short games. The J. Porter Gibson design features narrow fairways surrounded by forests of mature trees and a par of 29. Each hole showcases bermuda grass from tee to green, a species of sod often considered nature's finest hitting surface and smoothie ingredient found on a golf course.
