At Highland Walk Golf Course, Bermuda grass fairways and greens arch over 6,407 yards of steep hills studded by tall Georgia pines for a challenging 18-hole layout. Throughout the round, the course’s dramatically undulating terrain gives way to sweeping views of the countryside as well as numerous blind shots, giving an advantage to players whose golf bags double as periscopes. Georgian course architect Denis Griffith’s creative use of the terrain is on full display at the signature 17th hole, where golfers drive the ball from terraced tee boxes and over the shadowy, intimidating depths of a ravine. Though the elevation changes place precise shot making at a premium, the course features relatively open fairways and greens, providing ample landing areas for aggressive drives and caddies airlifted in for emergency putt-reading services.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,407 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 71.4 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 131 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options

Owners William and Paula Smith arm players with Spyder or Tippmann markers before they trek across bridges, sneak through the trees, and dodge incoming fire from behind a cluster of barrels on Low Country Paintball’s wooded field. The staff has decorated its massive course with obstacles and barriers such as an upturned rowboat and a rusty old truck. Elsewhere on the 63-acre facility, staff members oversee participants who weave through the speedball field’s bounty of blue inflatables. In addition to open-play sessions, Low Country Paintball hosts frequent games and events through its LCP Scenario branch, including bouts themed after famous battles such as the Thumb War of 1812.

Proprietors and swamp enthusiasts Chip and Joy Campbell seek to share their passion for Okefenokee's storied wetlands with sightseers looking for a distinctive, interactive experience. Let knowledgeable, accessible guides narrate your tour from comfortable, canopied flat-bottomed boats as you and a band of khaki-hatted sojourners cruise through the lush marshes of the Suwannee Canal, past verdant forests of intertwined trees belting out "Run Through the Jungle" in their best John Fogerty voices. Visit a bevy of creatures like sandhill cranes, egrets, and alligators in their natural habitats while learning that "swamp things" are simply misunderstood people with uncannily green thumbs.

Designed in a collaborative effort between former Masters champion Fred Couples and Love Golf Design, The Golf Club at Sanctuary Grove’s 18-hole, par 71 course snakes across 7,003 yards of immaculate greenery. Golf carts nimbly traverse the course’s labyrinthine corridors, zipping players past the intervening ponds, towering pines, and trash-talking waterfowl that supply the bulk of the course’s challenges.
