Charleston National Golf Club
1360 National Drive
Mt Pleasant, SC
Golf Digest considers the Charleston National Golf Course as the best non-resort golf course in SC, and for good reason – this 18-hole coastal golf course was designed by famed architect Rees Jones and takes golfers along wetlands, lagoons, and pine forests along the Intercoastal Waterway.
Here you’ll find five sets of tee markers to accommodate players of all skill levels. The undulating greens pose a serious challenge to seasoned players while the finishing holes, which have been carved into acres of stunning marshland, are truly some of the most memorable and distinctive you’ll ever find in SC.
The Ocean and Osprey Golf Courses at Kiawah Island Golf Resort
One Sanctuary Beach Drive
Kiawah Island, SC
This luxury resort is home to several golf courses, the most famous of which is the Pete and Alice Dye-designed Ocean Course. The 18-hole par 72 golf course was ranked #4 in the United States and #25 among the 100 Greatest U.S. Golf Courses by Golf Digest.
Located on the eastern tip of the private island, the golf course features 10 seaside holes that let you admire the beauty of the Atlantic during your match.
But that spectacular view comes at a price – the golf course’s seaside setting exposes it to harsh and unpredictable winds, which make for a challenging but fulfilling game. Golf players will have to watch the direction and strength of the wind before swinging their club.
Another must-play course on the island is the Osprey Golf Course, a championship-level golf course with some of the most challenging par 3s and distinctive par 5s you will ever encounter.
The Links and Harbor Courses at Wild Dunes Resort
10001 Back Bay Drive
Isle of Palms, SC
This Tom Fazio-designed golf course features champion Bermuda grass and immaculate greens. It’s also a feast for the eyes, with its rolling fairways, swaying palms, and panoramic views of the Atlantic.
A Fazio favorite, Golf Advisor ranked the Links #8 among South Carolina’s Top Courses in 2018. Previous guests report battling gusts of wind while playing the course, which adds an element of fun and excitement for golfers who want a challenge.
The Harbor Course is also lauded for its design – bordered by glistening lagoons and salt marshes to the side of the Intercoastal Waterway, its varied layout offers up a challenge to anyone who’s up for a good game.
Guests will also find practice facilities and a pro shop at the elegantly appointed Links Clubhouse.
