With its elevated greens and crisp ocean breezes, Selva Marina Country Club's challenging par-72 course has entertained day-clubbers of all levels for more than 50 years, including Jack Nicklaus in 1966, who recorded a double-eagle on the 18th hole. Revel in the Country Club's private, unpretentious, and scenic environment, where golfers can easily drive, pitch, and putt on the spacious practice area just blocks away from the shoreline. Spare the expense of hoverboard or Icarus wings rentals and rove Selva's open fairways in the provided golf cart, allowing linksmen to explore the winding pathways or stop for a tan in the local sand traps. Whatever your ability level or past experience with the sport of golf, the Selva Marina course is amply suited to beginners and putting veterans alike.

The 27 holes that comprise Magnolia Point Golf & Country Club sweep across a 1,000-acre tract of Clay County rife with wildlife and picturesque forests of oak, pine, and magnolia. The three par-36 sides feature no parallel fairways, meaning golfers seldom worry about hitting other groups or face the temptation to joust with oncoming carts on adjacent fairways. As golfers tick off strokes, they may spot local wildlife such as deer, alligators, and waterfowl frolicking about in their natural domain. In 2006, the USGA elected to hold its final qualifying tournament for the U.S. Amateur at Magnolia Point, drawn to its scenic layout, challenging play, and abundance of bird informants who keep an eye out for unwarranted mulligans. Course at a Glance: * Three nine-hole sides * Maximum 18-hole length of 6,796 yards * Five sets of tees per hole * See the scorecard

Nestled in the scenic shadows of the Smoky Mountains, Bent Creek Golf Course's 18-hole layout stretches across 6,182 yards of fairways that rise and fall among rolling foothills and pristine valleys. Golf legend and course designer Gary Player made deft use of a babbling mountain stream by running it through the course and seamlessly uniting two distinct nines: a front nine that sprawls across the valley floor and a back nine that roams the hilly mountainside like a forlorn sasquatch. The overall effect is a course that does justice to both the sheer scope of the rising peaks with bottom-up views and the panoramic splendor of Great Smoky Mountains National Park when seen from the cresting hilltops of the back-nine. The inventive layout is perhaps best characterized by the 11th hole, a 362-yard par 4 where a 90-degree dogleg-left plays into a green completely surrounded by the creek's rippling waters. A blend of bent and bermuda grasses grows resiliently for golfers striving to play all year-round, and fragrant wildflowers blossom at every tee to warm the hearts of world-weary nine-irons.

Bent Creek bolsters the pin-hunting prowess of its golfers with a staff of PGA-certified instructors that conducts lessons and presides over the domain of their full-service pro shop. A practice putting green helps players trim their score by reading dicey slopes, and the Creek Side Grill hosts postround revelry and community gatherings to decry the historical hardships of the mashie niblick.:m]]

Course at a Glance:

  • Designed by three-time Masters and British Open Champion Gary Player
  • Bermuda-and-bent-grass combination
  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,182 yards from the farthest tees

At the tee box on Cimarrone Golf Club's 12th hole, golfers face a dilemma: play a drive safely out to the right—where, at worst, the ball may stray into the rough—or attempt an aggressive shot over the water on the hole's left side, cutting off much of the dogleg and setting up a closer approach. With multiple bending fairways, deep bunkers, and a water hazard or marsh feature on every hole, the 18-hole, 6,891-yard course presents high-risk, high-reward scenarios at nearly every turn, delighting golfers who like to live dangerously and favoring those whose sand wedge moonlights as an actuary.

Before rounds, golfers can warm up swings at the club's driving range, a much-needed confidence booster before taking to the water-laden course or betting that they can outdrive the staff's resident T-shirt cannon.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,891 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 73.5 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 137 from the farthest tees
  • Five tee options

The golfing gurus at Edwin Watts Golf Academy diagnose and correct their students' poor swing and putting habits in an effort to help them improve their shots and lower their scores. In one-on-one swing-analysis sessions, students learn a repeatable swing that eliminates tendencies they may have to slice, hook, push, or pull the ball. A special laser attaches to the end of the player's club and tracks the swing path while JC Video swing-analysis software records the session from two separate angles, lest analysis be thrown off by only looking at the golfer's good side. Putting analysis employs Tomi technology to measure eight separate parameters of the putting stroke, from clubhead orientation at address to swing path and tempo. After swing and putting lessons, students may access the recordings on a password-protected website, so they can forward videos to friends or sports-documentary filmmakers.
