The Ford Plantation boasts a rich history. Awarded as a King’s Grant in 1734, for many years the land was divided into working rice plantations and then consolidated in the 1920s by Henry Ford who wanted a winter retreat for his family. More recently the property has evolved into a premier sporting community. Ford’s Plantation’s Pete Dye course was fully renovated by Dye himself in 2014 and named “Best Renovation (Private)” by Links Magazine. Since then Golf Digest has cited Ford as one of the “Best New Golf Courses in America” and Golf Week has included it in both its 2016 and 2017 lists of “Top 100 Best Residential Courses”.
