Charleston National is a spectacular eighteen hole championship course designed by the renowned golf course architect Rees Jones.

This year-round layout meanders through the marshland and natural lagoons which add beauty, as well as challenge to the course. There are strategically placed wooden bridges that carry the golfer over the natural areas from the tee box to the green.

Charleston National was recently rated the number one non-resort course in the Charleston area by Golf Magazine.

The Links at Stono Ferry is a championship par 72 golf course located along the Intracoastal Waterway in the beautiful South Carolina Lowcountry. This links-style golf course offers both a thrill and a challenge to all skill levels. The front nine is carved through massive oaks and pines, while the back nine gives panoramic views of the marshlands and the Intracoastal Waterway. One thing is certain, you will be pleased with the layout, amenities, courteous staff, and course conditions.

Kiawah Island, SC
Designed by Pete Dye and opened in 1991 before the Ryder Cup Matches, The Ocean Course gained instant notoriety as the site of the most dramatic "War by the Shore," a battle decided literally by the final putt of Sunday's final match. In 1997, The Ocean Course hosted the World Cup of Golf. The world's finest golfers from 32 countries competed in this stroke play tournament. And later this year, The Ocean Course will once again take center stage of the golf world when the UBS Warburg Cup arrives with names such as Palmer, Nicklaus and Player. But with all 18 holes offering panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, it's likely The Ocean Course would have earned widespread acclaim had no tournament ever been played there. Located at the eastern end of Kiawah Island, The Ocean Course negotiates along 2 3/4 miles of pristine oceanfront property. According to Pete Dye, "There’s no other golf course in the Northern Hemisphere that has as many seaside holes".

Kiawah Island, SC
Designed by Gary Player, the par-72 layout features holes playing directly along broad expanses of tidal marsh, offering panoramic views of the Kiawah River and acres of needlerush and spartina grass. Cougar Point is designed to test the scratch player while providing an enjoyable round for all.

Kiawah Island, SC
The combination of length and accuracy demanded by this Jack Nicklaus design has led to its selection for several important championships including the Carolinas' Amateur, the Carolinas' PGA, the South Carolina Amateur and the 1990 PGA Cup Matches, the club professional's version of the Ryder Cup. Opened in 1981, Turtle Point is a low-profile design with fairways and green settings blended into the existing landscape. Nowhere is this more evident than along a spectacular three-hole stretch woven through rolling sand dunes directly along the Atlantic Ocean. With sparkling renovations completed in October 2000, the new Turtle Point invites both past and new guests to experience the beauty of the course. Turtle Point's grand new clubhouse is scheduled for completion by the end of 2001. The course's new state-of-the-art teaching facility will opens February 1st, 2001 and will serve as the course's clubhouse for the remainder of the year.

Kiawah Island, SC
Designed by the consensus pick as the best contemporary architect in golf, Tom Fazio has left his mark on Kiawah. At Osprey Point, Fazio used a superb natural canvas to create a masterpiece in playability and variety. The setting for the course features four large, natural lakes, fingers of saltwater marsh, and dense maritime forests of live oaks, pines, palmettos, and magnolias. Into that backdrop, Fazio blended a par-72 layout that takes advantage of its setting. Ranked in Golf Digest's "America's Top 75 Resort Courses," Osprey Point has grown into one of the favorite courses on the island.

Located one mile outside the main gate of the Resort, Oak Point is the newest addition to Kiawah’s array of courses. This Scottish-American style course borders the historic Haulover Creek and the Kiawah River. Wide areas of windswept fairways stretch alongside salt marshlands interspersed with densely forested areas of live oaks. Oak Point was rated among "America’s Best" by Golfweek magazine.

1 Patriots Point Road, Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464
One round on this harborside links course will confirm its popularity. A subtle and rolling course, the Links’ pleasing appearance belies its most devilish feature: the winds blowing from the harbor. This factor gives it a certain unpredictability, especially on hole #17, a short 3 par whose green reaches into the harbor, giving folgers a real test for birdie. The constantly changing natural condition of Patriots Point Links, coupled with the breath-taking vistas, combine to give varied dimensions to this course that promises to be a rewarding experience each time you play it.

5757 Palm Blvd., Isle of Palms, SC 29451
800-845-8880, ext. 4, 843-886-2164
The par-72 Links features massive dunes, saltwater marches and the Atlantic Ocean in a layout that's as much an artistic achievement as it is an athletic challenge.

In terms of a game that dates back centuries, Wild Dunes Links is a relative infant. Yet few newcomers to the ancient game have captured the imagination of golf enthusiasts as this Tom Fazio creation set hard against the Atlantic Ocean of the Isle of Palms, just 20 minutes from historic Charleston.

Described as "a combination of Scotland and the Caribbean" by one national golf publication, and called "the ultimate in seaside golf in America" by another, Wild Dunes Links has been acclaimed as one of the outstanding courses in golf worldwide since its Labor Day, 1980 opening. Its breathtaking 18th hole, stretched out against the Atlantic and shaped by rolling sand dunes, is said to be "the greatest finishing hole east of Pebble Beach."

5757 Palm Blvd., Isle of Palms, SC 29451
800-845-8880, ext. 4, 843-886-2164

Fazio’s Harbor Course is said to be "cut from some of the prettiest real estate in South Carolina." Water makes up a great deal of the Harbor Course layout. After all, half the course runs along the "world’s longest water hazard," the Intracoastal Waterway.

Fazio claims the Harbor Course to be one of his favorites. "Working on the Harbor Course was very satisfying to me as a designer because we had to create everything. We had to create the features, build the dunes, and create the green settings. It was a very challenging, and ultimately, a very satisfying project."

Playing to a deceptive par of 70 and water on 17 of its 18 holes, the Harbor demands skillful shotmaking and strategic thinking.
