Best Golf Courses In South Carolina

The best golf courses in South Carolina include two of the finest public courses on the southeastern seaboard – The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island and Harbour Town Golf Links at Sea Pines Resort. Both these tracks have hosted some of the best golfers in the world, Harbour Town for the annual Heritage Classic, now known as the RBC Heritage, on the PGA Tour, and Kiawah Island hosted the War On the Shore Ryder Cup of 1991 as well as two PGA Championships. But there are many other great golfing layouts in the Palmetto State, as we recount below.

In the world of monster par 3s, the 9th at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club is a welcome change, running only 118 yards to the centre of a shallow green which lurks behind a sprawling bunker which defends the entire front of the green. Flamboyant bunkering is a feature of the often imaginative designs, with risk-and-reward golf options, holes which barrel through avenues of mature oak trees and — the clue’s in the club name — a fair few water hazards sploshed about.
