Here golf is more than a game. It's also a sightseeing excursion.
Enhancing nature's abundance, the Bald Head Island Club's 18-hole championship golf course winds its way over dunes, around lagoons, along the ocean, and through a maritime forest. Designer George Cobb, who for 20 years was the lead consultant at Augusta National, left much of the terrain the way he found it, creating a course of almost unparalleled wild beauty. Many of the holes are so undisturbed; in fact, they are bordered by the still lively natural habitats of herons, egrets, ibises, foxes and alligators. This George Cobb designed course is only reachable by ferry. Round trip ferry ride is $15.00, and the car parking fee is $5.00. It will be a golfing trip you will not forget!
