FOUR of a KIND Hampton Golf takes the country club Lifestyle to a whole new level

Hampton Golf is widely recognized as a leader in golf course management, known not so much for the quantity of the clubs under its aegis, but for the quality. Indeed, the inventory of Hampton-managed courses reads like a Who’s Who? of private and semi-private clubs in the Southeastern, U.S., and includes such notables as Eagle Harbor, Grand Haven, Osprey Cove, Southern Hills Plantation and Sugarloaf Mountain. Hampton prides itself on its exemplary customer service, impeccable course conditioning, and an innate knowledge of what country club members want most from their “home” facility, and clubs managed by the company are able to offer more than anyone dared to expect. 

Hampton Golf Four of the 16 clubs in the current Hampton inventory have so much in common, yet are worlds apart in style, design and overall country club experience.

Fortunately, members of any one club can now share those experiences through Hampton Golf’s Reciprocal Program, wherein a Full Golf or Associate Member has year-round access to the other facilities -- and more -- without a green fee and with only a $25 cart fee. Additionally, guests of the member will receive the reciprocal club’s preferred Member Guest Rate. It’s a program unique to the industry, and it’s met with unbridled success. 

The PlantationThe Plantation
The Plantation Golf and Country Club in Fort Myers is the ultimate in private-access golfing lifestyle. This gated community abounds in native trees, preserve land and striking fairways. The Plantation golf course, which anchors the community, is carved out of open areas, preserving the natural habitat for the enjoyment of the residents. The golf course, designed by Hurdzan-Fry, provides a challenging, thoughtprovoking and fun experience. The fairways have numerous rolls and dips to create definite target areas, and the greens are highlighted with many chipping areas contoured to truly test the player’s short game skills. The bunkering is in the “Pinehurst” style – not overly deep, but with very steep faces.

At the center of it all is the 38,000-squarefoot Great House, featuring an interior reminiscent of a fine British Colonial manor home. The focal point is Dartington’s, an inviting restaurant and bar with two cozy fireplaces. Broad terraces encircling the clubhouse offer spectacular views of the gold course, while providing the perfect venue for a wide variety of social events and celebrations.
