Carved from 1,000 acres of native forests and surrounding wetlands, the spectacular par 72 course at Queen’s Harbour enchants sportsmen and nature lovers alike with fairways flanked by intercoastal waterways. Pairs of golfers putt, chip, and drive their way through 7,017 yards of scenic playing grounds designed by pro-player, acclaimed architect, and stunning polo-shirt model Mark McCumber, as Southern breezes sweep through Spanish moss on century-old oak trees. Masterfully avoid stepping on cracks that break mothers' backs by rolling over them (mothers, that is) in the included golf cart before stepping into the clubhouse postgame to relax amid airy verandas overlooking the picturesque freshwater marina. Designed to provide a challenge to players of varying skill levels, Queen’s Harbour welcomes guests to spoil their walk on a course that has hosted such prestigious tournaments as the PGA Tour Qualifier and the Mercedes Collegiate Championships. Grab today’s Groupon to spend a leisurely day with a like-minded link lover, or share it with a stranger with a remarkably similar appreciation for fresh air.
