Ocean Course at Hammock Beach
The only true oceanfront golf course to open in
Originally opened as the Ocean Hammock Golf Course, it was purchased from Centex Destination Properties at the end of 2006 by The Ginn Company (Ginn Resorts) along with the adjoining Lodge at Ocean Hammock. Centex had purchased these properties from the original developer, Lowe Properties, only a year earlier. With the acquisition of the golf course and lodge, Bobby Ginn fulfilled a long held desire to round out the amenities at his Hammock Beach Club and Resort, which overlooks the course and the Atlantic Ocean.

Fairways have generous landing areas but narrow significantly on second shots. The difficult par 3s are handicapped lower than the reachable par 5s. Greens are large with undulations but putt truly. In typical Nicklaus fashion, the course is well bunkered with many deep faced. GPS equipped carts help you negotiate this beautiful layout. The staff is professional and very courteous.
The Ocean Course's practice area is fabulous. It’s one of the largest in the area with several target greens and a separate instructional area at the far end. The putting green is huge and, like the rest of the course, in great condition. The Ocean Course at Hammock Beach is private. Memberships are available to Ginn property owners. Play is available to guests at the Ginn Hammock Beach Club Resort.
