Golf in “The Golden Isles” along the Georgia Coast

by Guerry Norwood

The Georgia Coast is the home of abundant classic southern coastal golf courses.  One of the newer ones is The Golf Club at Sanctuary Cove.  I have played there a couple of times in the last two weeks with friends and my youngest son and it is in great shape.  They have already over seeded for the fall so the greens and fairways are in great shape.

The Golf Club at Sanctuary coveThe Golf Club at Sanctuary Cove, located in Waverly, Ga., is a Love Golf Design/Fred Couples Signature course, which sits on the Golden Isles of Georgia and represents one of the top new semi-private golf facilities in the state.   The Golf Club at Sanctuary Cove is the first project for Love Golf Design that does not bear the name Davis Love III as the signature designer, but it is a partnership that blends the classic design elements from traditional golf course architecture with the techniques of modern day design.

The result at Sanctuary Cove is a par-71, 7,003-yard layout that is different from the typical residential golf experience and one that is truly unique to the area.  By working with the natural features of the land, Couples has created a course that is challenging without being penal, and one that golfers will not tire of playing.  The Golf Club at Sanctuary Cove will provide a true and fair test of golf that will appeal to players of all ability levels.
