Ocean Creek Course on Fripp Island
Ocean Creek Golf Club, designed by PGA Champion Davis Love III and Paul Cowley was opened in 1995. Incorporating sweeping views of saltwater marshes, freshwater lagoons, lush jungle vegetation and four distinctive rolling dune ridges, this beautiful course is 6,392 total yards and a par 71. “The Creek” features five sets of tees including the Wee-Links tees that make the course enjoyable for all skill levels and a fair challenge to the advanced player. The wide fairways and large greens offer enticing targets, but stray shots beware!
Par for the Course
Ocean Creek is a private course: Member Cards or Guest Cards are required.
The signature 6th and 7th holes are situated on the “Old House Creek” and marsh, which Jacques Cousteau called “one of the most pristine salt-water marsh habitats in the world”. Five holes are edged by marsh, while another six incorporate interior wetlands, preserved and connected to the course through a network of wooden walkways and bridges.
You may want to pack your camera in your golf bag, as the course is home to a wondrous variety of Fripp Island wildlife including egrets, osprey, herons, and deer.
The landscape is so wonderful, in fact, that it attracted movie producers to film scenes from Forrest Gump and Disney’s live-action version of The Jungle Book.
