Twisting through rolling green terrain and towering pine trees, the Foxfire Golf and Country Club West Course offers the 36 holes of true-blue traditional golf. The course is designed by distinguished architect Gene Hamm, and features G-6 bentgrass greens, new car paths, irrigation, sprinkler systems and bunkers. Foxfire is a golf vacation destination that perfectly blends classic golf with the excitement of modern, tournament-style play. The golf club has a pro shop, practice facility, snack bar and full-service resort.
The Foxfire Golf and Country Club West Course was opened in 1968 and since then continued to enjoy the status as one of the leading golf vacation destinations in North Carolina’s Sandhills area. This eye catching golf layout is set in an area that was once a known fox hunting site, hence the name Foxfire. The golf club has two courses, the Foxfire East and West Course. While the East Course is known for its challenging par 5 first hole, the West Course is famous for its tricky par 3’s, which underscore the course’s natural wonder. What makes the West Course a bit catchy as compared to the rest of the courses in the area is that the Bent Grass greens are in brilliant shape and that the fairways are verdant.
Whether you’re looking for tradition, history or simply wish to try a new challenge, the Foxfire Golf and Country Club West Course should make an excellent golf package selection. Immaculately-conditioned, and spruced-up by recent multimillion-dollar improvements, the Foxfire East Course now offers elevated fast rolling greens and manicured fairways. Bunkers are strategically placed to capture any wayward shots, and there’s lot of sand to guard the greens. Gene Hamm has also designed unique “bail-out’ places, so that golfers can avoid the harshest drop-offs and deep-faced bunkers. And while the course’s G-6 hybrid bentgrass greens fairly holds shots well, they can confuse and mystify even the most veteran of putters, because of its delicate breaks.
