The Ease of No Tee Times at The Ford’s Pete Dye-Designed Golf Course

Published on

A game at your own pace—that’s the benefit of teeing up at The Ford. When you live at The Ford Field & River Club, you have exclusive access to our 250-acre golf course designed by famed architect, Pete Dye. No tee times mean you can sink into an unhurried game, stay awhile, and socialize with fellow players. Our members arrive on time, every time, when any time is tee time.

The parkland-style front nine and links-style back nine of the course are distinctly designed, making for two different types of engaging rounds of play. Our highly-coveted course has been host to the Georgia Open five times in the past six years. Picking up a casual game of golf at moment’s notice is part of life at The Ford. Socialize with fellow members while playing in a breathtaking natural setting—there’s never a rush.

See why the simple luxury of no tee times makes all the difference:


Play Golf at Your Own Leisure

The game of golf has become more popular than ever in recent years. Over 24.8 million people sought out the sport in 2020 alone, and today, it’s becoming a favorite outdoor activity among all ages.

Now, heightened interest means new players are flocking to the course, while experienced golfers are looking to play more rounds than previously. While it’s great for the sport, the increased demand often leads to difficulty scheduling tee times and shorter, hurried games at many public and private courses alike.

Practice your swing and stay awhile. Here, there’s never a worry about having a spot on the course—because no tee times are required. On other courses, missing a tee time can mean having to wait to play or not playing at all. At The Ford, no tee times give our members flexibility and control over their own game.


Bring the Entire Family

As a refuge in the Lowcountry, The Ford cultivates a sense of community both on and off the green. Our course welcomes players of every age and skill level, so parents can bring their children for a round of golf at any time.

Coined “very playable” by many of our members, the course offers golfers the option of a challenging route through bunkers and hazards or an easier alternative by avoiding them altogether.

Fostering the connection between family members is a key component of life at The Ford. The lack of tee times allows members of all ages the opportunity to start a game at a moment’s notice—any time the occasion calls for it.


Return for Multiple Rounds

A course made for you. With no tee times, our members can play a round of golf more than once a day. Renovated by Pete Dye in 2014, our course has received high praise from national publications such as Golfweek, Golf Digest and LINKS Magazine.

You’ll want to return to our award-winning course, which features two distinct landscapes between the front and back nine courses. Just steps from your own home lie both a parkland-style and a links-style course, offering an immersive experience switching between tall grasses, birds, and views of the estuary on one course and towering pines, oak trees, and ponds on the other.

Return to The Ford for unlimited golf, at your leisure.
