Golf As You Choose It
However you want to play golf, you can do it here on your schedule, in your way, on Pete Dye’s masterful 2014 re-creation of our golf course.
Golf at Ford is about remembering that golf is a game, meant to be played for fun. If your idea of fun is facing a real challenge, by all means take yourself to the black tees and have a serious competition at 7,400 yards. If your idea of fun is introducing your children or grandchildren to the joys of the game, play the back nine in the late afternoon as shadows highlight the contours of the course, and enjoy the simplest pleasures of golf.
Pete Dye’s 2014 complete restoration of our course ensures that all of its challenges and delights are available to golfers of every level. “Playable” here doesn’t mean easy—it means that the fun of the game lies ahead from whichever tees you choose. The front nine plays through pine forest along a chain of lakes, while the back nine, built on reclaimed rice fields, recalls the open links of Scotland and Ireland.
Just show up at the practice tee about 9 o’clock most mornings, when our pro shop team sets up games for men and women. Not a morning person? Play whenever you choose. We have no tee times – at Ford the delights of golf are there for you to enjoy when and how you choose.
We take the fun of golf seriously. Our expansive practice ground, with two separate short game areas, a dedicated putting green and a practice tee more than a hundred yards wide provides all the room you need to work on any part of your game. And our team, led by Head Golf Professional Ryan Skipton, who joined us from The National Golf Links of America, is always available for a full lesson or a quick tip.
Golf at Ford – like life at Ford – is what you make it. It’s casual, fun, and all about making sure that our members reconnect to the reasons they play the game. Members from iconic golf clubs such as Pine Valley, Winged Foot, Crooked Stick, Oakland Hills, Yeamans Hall, Misquamicut, Atlanta Athletic Club and Royal Dornoch chose Ford because they love the way the game is played here.
