An Afternoon on the Green

March 05, 2018

Set up the tee and take to the green at one of the beautiful golf courses just a short distance away from our beach resort. ThunderHawk may have intimidation in the name, but the course has generous fairways to make for a great game. Plus, it was ranked 9th in the nation, making it the highest rated municipal course in the region. Each hole was crafted for challenge and playability to push your skills and have fun. And nearby Shepherd’s Crook boasts a dynamic, links-style course, designed by Keith Foster, responsible for some of the most successful courses in the past ten years. The course represents the golden era of golf courses, with features built naturally to its terrain. No matter which course you choose—and we suggest hitting up both—there’s nothing quite like a day spent out on the course, and finishing with a nice, cold beverage back at our place.
