The clubhouse at Beacon Ridge Golf & Country Club is an ivory monument of colonial-era gentility with four columns and a neoclassical façade inspired by George Washington’s plantation home at Mount Vernon. Though impressive in its own right, the stately manor is hardly out of place when compared to the club’s golf course. Visitors to the grounds are greeted by a 6,494-yard circuit of well-kept bermuda fairways and penncross-bentgrass greens that winds through towering Carolina pines and bunkers of sand so pristinely white that they appear to be crushed marble or genetically evolved snowflakes that adapted to withstand the summer swelter. The course reflects the vision of architect Gene Hamm, who showcases the natural charms of the North Carolina Sandhill region with rolling fairways, contoured greens, and water that comes into play on five holes. Tricky shot-making opportunities abound throughout the layout, especially at the 542-yard, par-5 fourth—the course’s most difficult hole—where golfers must clear a pond with their drive before navigating a fairway that doglegs sharply to the left as it approaches the green. To prepare for their round, golfers can stock up on divot tools or tees to use as toothpicks at the pro shop or warm up their swing and putting stroke at the synthetic-turf driving range and practice green.

Winding for more than 1 mile around woodland areas, open fields, and a farm pond, DeWitt's Outdoor Sports, LLC's sporting-clay course challenges guests of all experience levels with a variety of target presentations. At the push of a button, automated traps launch clays from the course's 14 shooting stations over bodies of water, sprawling meadows, and dense forests. The course is one of many on DeWitt's 65 acres, which have hosted numerous state shoots and championships. Beneath a tin roof, targets fly from eight wireless traps across the nearly 1,000 square feet of the 5-stand pavilion. There, guests can fire from five stations by day or under lights during nighttime sessions. At an adjacent covered, two-station rifle range, patrons test their aim at distances up to 200 yards away, while visitors to the 5-stand's eight bays fire at targets up to 50 feet away. At the 5-stand, NSCA-certified instructor Rick Mitchell holds clay-shooting instructions. He also uses videos and still photos to trace his students' clay-shooting skills. Additionally, DeWitt's staff use the grounds for guided half-day duck or early-release quail hunts. Partnered with guide dogs, hunters stroll the tranquil grounds while searching for mallards roaming four duck pond habitats or coveys of quail.
