Crow Creek Golf Plantation: Calabash, North Carolina

CROW CREEK GOLF CLUB IS A welcome escape on the coastal Carolina golf scene. Nestled in the quiet town of Calabash, known more for its seafood than for its golf, it is only a few miles from the many courses located along the Grand Strand. Just a short drive from frenetic Myrtle Beach, the 7,101-yard course seems a world away from the hustle and bustle that pervades much of the Strand.

Designed by North Carolina native Rick Robbins, the course is consistently ranked among the best in the state. Indeed, since opening in February 2000, Crow Creek has become one of the most popular golf destinations on the Southeastern coast.

The luxurious L-93 bent grass greens play fast year-round, and the Tifsport Bermuda fairways flourish in the sun-drenched coastal weather. Players will have a better chance of staying on those fairways on the wide-open front nine, though they must deal with water hazards on eight of those holes. Water is also a common concern on the back nine, but it poses a serious risk on just four holes.

Residents and visitors alike will find Crow Creek-s location convenient. For example, after a round of golf, they can travel just a few miles to the birthplace of Calabash-style fried seafood for dinner. Located 15 minutes from North Myrtle Beach, the course is a welcome getaway for golfers while the rest of the family takes a side trip to one of many outlet centers. Of course, the area-s major attraction is mile after mile of clean, sandy beaches.

Along with 18 holes of golf, Crow Creek offers a full-service pro shop, tennis courts and a pool. The Brunswick County neighborhood around the course offers condos, town homes and custom-built homes, which start in the $450,000 range.
