Scotland County Golf

Our Scottish forbears weren’t all work and no play. Along with their pipes and tartans, they brought their fascination with a little white ball and a bag full of clubs. But there’s a reason why golf’s American heritage is laden with images of the Sandhills region.

The early spring in Scotland County provides much the same inspiring scenery as our rather more well-known neighbor to the north – namely, verdant pine trees with an understory of azalea and dogwood. Against this backdrop, golf course designers have laid out challenging links to test your skills while you enjoy a game with your foursome on a Saturday.

Deercroft Golf and Country Club in Wagram, for example, has been described by
Golf Digest as “the best kept secret in the Sandhills.” Moving south to Laurinburg,
one finds the Donald Ross layout at Scotch Meadows, which has drawn admirers since it opened in 1938.
