Have you ever heard of a 22 hole golf course where it's only match play and strokes don't matter? It might not work for the traditionalist, but this low-key gem will be around for a long time. In 2018 Golf Digest rated this the best new private course in the country.

The course is located in rural Tattnall County and sits on a 3,500 acre estate that was once used for onion farming. It is now owned by Michael Walrath and designed by Gil Hanse. The course sits on a rolling, forested, lakeside landscape that seems to fit in perfectly with it's surroundings.

The course features half-par holes that provide the golfers with numerous risk/reward opportunities, making it perfect for the match play scenario. The course is a winter season course and is not open in the hot summer months. No carts are allowed and you must walk with a caddie.

Is this the new normal when it comes to golf courses. It definitely is a departure from the norm, but one that attempts to make the game fun.
