The Oak Pointe Golf Course is a stunning golf vacation destination that perfectly lies on a natural setting right on the very heart of Hope Plantation. It was built on the grounds on what was once known as a cotton and old indigo plantation. This Par 72 layout features a Scottish-American style that can be very challenging even to the highly skilled golfers. The fair test in golf that this amazing golf layout offers proved that Oak Point is a must try when visiting South Carolina. Designed by the famed Clyde Johnston, this golf gem is all about challenge and beauty.
The masterfully crafted golf holes at Oak Point Golf Course play a Par 72, 6,759 yards from the tips and have been considered to compliment a truly Shotmaker’s course. The layout was given a course rating of 73.8 and a 140 slope rating on Bermuda grass. In order to get through the tough test in golf, every golfer must have the thinking approach as well as strategy. In 2004, the front nine renovations were completed and that a Par-3 ninth hole was added and that the first hole was lengthened to a Par-5 from its previous Par-4. Approaching the final holes can be a bit challenging too. The 17th compels golfers a tee shot flanked by the narrow chute of trees while the 18th is a natural beauty that goes through the 250-yard carry over by the creek from the back tees. And to add up to the existing challenge, a bulk-headed and well-guarded green has been strategically placed out in the marsh.
The Oak Point Golf Course is not just about the challenging golf holes but the majestic vistas as well. So whether you are into golfing or not, this remarkable golf escape is one place where family and friends can gather for a relaxing break.
