The small town of Beaufort is where the original Articles of Secession from the Union were drafted in 1860, and Secession Golf Club is named after the momentous act that led to the breakaway of eleven southern states and the five turbulent years of civil war that followed.

Situated on Gibbes Island in the heart of the South Carolina Low Country, Secession sits in perfect isolation among the tidal inlets with no housing on or around the property, offering members and their guests a real get away from it all environment.

A round here is enhanced by the club rule of walking the course with a caddie, enabling players more time to take in the surroundings, especially as fourteen of the fairways are laid out along scenic marsh land.

With tee positions named after generals that fought in the American Civil War (from Jackson at 5,512 yards up to Grant at 7,035 yards) and holes named after battles that took place during the conflict, the golf experience at Secession is one of the most unique to be found anywhere.

A peaceful golfing utopia which makes you feel like you’re miles from anywhere. This club is like a retreat where you can experience wonderful golf and outstanding southern hospitality. The course itself is dead flat, but with pot bunkers and forced carries, it has plenty of teeth. For years I had heard of how memorial the experience is at Secession, but the golf course with its gorgeous backdrops grows quickly on you from the first tee. Bring your A game.

Our group of eight golfers from the U.K. on holiday in South Carolina were lucky enough to be invited to play at Secession.The course commands outstanding views over the Low Country marhland. The first hole drive over the marsh was quite an intimidating shot off the Jebb Stuart tee, I hate to think what it would have looked like off the back tee!The fairways were quite generous but positioning was key to allow the player to attack the greens. The course has a requirement for all players to take a caddy. My caddy was very informative & helpful and certainly added to my experience.A stand out hole was the short 17th with an island green a third of the size of the TPC Sawgrass. The course was in outstanding condition and the ante bellum style clubhouse oozed charm.

Secession is a truly great golf experience and a world class golf retreat. The location of the club is secluded and provides a “get away from it all” type of feeling. Add in the views of the seaside/marsh area and the place is almost magical. As for the golf course itself, it is very solid…but not great. Lots a similar shots…diagonal marsh carries to skinny fairways, forced marsh carries, and skinny greens intermixed with a few pots bunkers. Understand, I am not saying the course is bad…as it is not…it is just simply not “great”. If you go, you will have a great time. Spend the night, enjoy multiple rounds of golf, it is a wonderful golf experience and you will enjoy yourself very much.
