COLLETON RIVER CLUB
Located along the Atlantic Ocean in Bluffton, S.C., the Colleton River Club hosted the 2015 United States Golf Association Junior Amateur Championship. Colleton River is a 1,500-acre, member-owned golf community that is surrounded on three sides by low-country. Regarded by golf legends as one of the finest 18 holes in the game, the Nicklaus Course at Colleton River celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2022. The course strikes an exceptional balance between challenge and playability. Nicklaus tempts you throughout, providing glimpses of the marsh on the front nine before finishing the round in dramatic fashion exposed to the winds and scenic vistas provided by the Colleton River. Measuring over 7,100 yards, the course was named “best new private course in America” in 1993 by Golf Digest. In the fall of 2017, the Nicklaus Course underwent a remarkable restoration unearthing its original classic low-country beauty.
