Looking for a layout that’s a little off the beaten path but worth the time to find? Add Lockwood Folly Country Club to the list of courses you need to play in 2016.
Located in Supply, N.C., Lockwood Folly, a 4-star course, according to Golf Digest, is a classic design that concludes with one of the most dramatic views along the Grand Strand.
A fully mature course, Lockwood Folly’s tree-lined fairways are relatively tight and there is water on 14 of 18 holes, making the driver (or whatever you hit off the tee) the most important club in the bag.
Your round at Lockwood Folly will be highlighted by the par 5 18th hole, which offers a spectacular view of the Intracoastal Waterway, Lockwood Folly River and Atlantic Ocean converging.
The course opened in 1988 and has thrived through the years due to management’s commitment to providing a quality experience. A new 15,000-square-foot clubhouse is currently under construction, and the course will closed for two months in mid-June for the installation of new greens, upgrades that will allow Lockwood Folly to retain its 4-star status.
This is a course that has remained ahead of the quality and conditioning curve, and if you haven’t played it, you need to.
