Hampton Club in Golden Isles is the best marsh golf I've seen
Myrtle Beach likes to rave about its great marsh courses, with good reason – the Grand Strand has some excellent marsh courses. So do, obviously, many other parts of the East Coast.
But, for pure views, I’ll take the Hampton Club on Georgia’s St. Simons Island.
At Hampton, you’re IN the marsh. They built four holes that are basically islands out in the marsh, connected by bridges. You’re out there with the ospreys, bald eagles and other marsh critters.
It’s a unique place and will probably stay that way, since there is virtually no way developers would be allowed to build that way today.
It’s a good course, too, very playable, and it is elevated by the spectacular setting. It’s on the site of an old, 18th century cotton plantation. Look for the full review coming soon.
