Outside of Beaufort, South Carolina, a barrier island is nestled on the coastline, offering a special golf destination – a course situated among sweeping vistas with overwhelming views of the ocean and coastal inlet. Ocean Point Golf Links harnesses 18 holes of immaculate terrain, guiding its players along the South Carolina shoreline and finishing 10 out of the 18 holes against a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.
Journey to the southern end of the island, and find Ocean Creek Golf Course, a course amidst four rolling dune lines with freshwater lakes sprinkled throughout the sea’s edge. Golf alongside frequenting deer, white egrets as well as the area’s infamous blue herons, but careful to allow nature’s distraction on your game – it could prove moist. Rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine also named this amazing course “one of the top 10 new courses to play,” in North America.
Teeing off on George Cobb’s infamous Ocean Point Golf Links is just the beginning to your Fripp Island, South Carolina golf vacation.

Named “100 Best Golf Resorts in North America,” by Links Magazine, Fripp Island Golf and Beach Resort received its title for a good reason.
