Frederica Golf Club

Saint Simons Island, GA Private

Overview

This private club is operated by Sea Island resort and located at the far north end of St. Simon's Island near the remains of Fort Frederica. Tom Fazio sometimes gets a rap for building "safe" courses that are heavy on visuals and lite on substance. No one will think he played it safe at Frederica, which possesses some of the most extroverted greens you'll find anywhere. They're full of crests and pockets and channels and crowns. Some are perched on sand ridges that the architecture team created (the 5th, 6th and remarkable 16th) and others are tucked behind sweeping bunkers (like 2, 3, 8 and 17). Moving through clusters of transplanted live oaks, along lakes, over dunes and into the saltwater marshes at the north end of the site, the course feels a little like the Lowcountry meets Long Island.
