With more than 360 championship-caliber courses, South Carolina golf offers a vast selection of options for golfers. Courses provide spectacular views with layouts that take in lakes, rivers, and beaches.

Along with these stunning views, South Carolina’s geography offers mountain courses, too. The state boasts some of the best courses in the United States and a couple that offer oceanfront play.

The Ocean Course was the first to be built on Hilton Head Island. It gets its name from the fact that two of the holes are located oceanfront. This course was redesigned in 1995, and brings scenic challenges with strategically placed lagoons and bunkers to test your golf skills. Along with the Ocean Course, the Sea Pines Resort offers two other golf options at the Harbour Town Golf Links and Heron Point course.

Guests have their choice of three different kinds of accommodations at the Sea Pines Resort: The Inn at Harbour Town, various homes, and villas. The Inn at Harbour Town provides 60 luxurious rooms. Homes and villas vary in size and are available in two to seven bedroom accommodations.

Kiawah Island South Carolina offers another ocean course found at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort. This ocean course hosted the 2007 Senior PGA and the 2012 PGA Championships.

While there are no prevailing winds on this course, golfers often find their game affected by the seabreeze. For this reason, the design of the course is like two in one – one for easterly winds and the other for westerly winds. Of the 18 holes, ten are seaside holes located along the Atlantic where golfers can enjoy unobstructed views of the coastline.

Along with golf, shopping and restaurants, visitors fall in love with the miles of pristine beaches and variety of wildlife.
