People who crave the sporting life love The Ford Plantation. The climate here makes it possible to enjoy a number of outdoor sports and recreational activities all year long. From golf to fishing to shooting sports and horseback riding, it’s all possible right here.
When famed golf course designer Pete Dye completed The Ford Plantation Golf Course, he proudly proclaimed it his “Finest Southern Links.” The unique golf course features a parkland-style front nine and a links-style back nine, giving players the experience of playing two courses in one. Renovated in 2014, the course has received high praise from national publications such as Golfweek, Golf Digest, and Links Magazine.
The Ford Plantation offers some of the best fishing in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry. Our location on a tidal stretch of the Ogeechee River provides members easy access to endless creeks and tributaries that are home to largemouth and striped bass. Down the river, pristine salt marshes are lined with oyster beds and teeming with redfish, sea trout, and tarpon. And offshore, the Georgia coast offers some of the most productive waters on the Atlantic coast.
The Ford Plantation Equestrian Center caters to all skill levels of both horse and rider. Our professional staff is here to serve both the members and their horses. Whether you own a horse or just want to take the occasional ride, the equestrian staff can make it happen. And if you’d like to find and purchase a horse of your own, they can even shepherd you through the process.
Shooting sports are quite popular in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry. Through Dorchester Shooting Preserve, The Ford Plantation provides its members with a variety of options for participating in this rich tradition. From bird and hog hunts to clay shoots, there’s a little something for anyone with even a passing interest in shooting sports.
