Welcome to golf at its best
Legendary golf architect, Bob Cupp, calls Hawks Ridge his greatest achievement, and those who have played it agree. In its first year, Hawks Ridge was named to Golf Digest’s Top 100 and has been called “an Augusta National for the 21st century.”

Challenging, beautiful and private, this course is everything a serious player could ask for. Five hundred and fifty acres of towering pines, changing elevations and water hazards result in a diversity of shots and strategies. Hawks Ridge will challenge the finest players round after round.

Our eighteen-hole, championship course is ideal for true golf enthusiasts and has quickly taken place among the legendary courses of the world. From the centerpiece waterfall on the fifteenth to the sleek, bent-grass greens, Hawks Ridge presents challenges for a lifetime of golfing.
