    Property Description:

    The Links at Perry Cabin, a championship 18-hole golf course, is the ultimate destination private club located along the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The last course completed by the legendary Pete Dye and Alice Dye, Links at Perry Cabin is a golfer’s dream and an exhilarating challenge for even the most skilled player.

    Built on a peninsula where farms and forests meet the shore, Links showcases Pete Dye’s unique ability to sculpt fairways and greens into natural expressions of the earth itself. Winding through indigenous trees and undulating terrain, the golf course if filled with inspiration from iconic golf holes such as the island green at TPC Sawgrass, and the “Biarritz” hole at the course at Yale.

    Providing a lasting impression are the last three holes, aptly named the “Goodnight Kiss.” Believing the end of any course should be the most memorable, akin to a goodnight kiss on a first date, Pete designed the final greens to remain in the golfer’s mind long after the round is over – each exciting, challenging and fun in their own way.

    Links at Perry Cabin is currently offering a limited number of memberships but guests can gain access to the golf course by staying at the Inns at Perry Cabin.
