The Robert Trent Jones course at the 54-hole Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island was the first 18-hole layout to open for play at this venue in 1968. An open, non-returning track, it was renovated in 2002 by Roger Rulewich.
Located on Hilton Head Island, the course at Wexford Plantation was originally a rather humdrum mid-1980s Willard Byrd design but a major renovation by Arnold Palmer in 2011 breathed new life into the layout.
Designed by Clyde Johnson and first opened for play in 1997, the course at Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf Links is one of three fascinating 18-hole layouts operated by the Glens Golf Group.
Tom Fazio laid out 18 holes at the residential Callawassie Island Club in 1984 and returned to add a further 9-hole loop (Dogwood) in 1992. All three nines are worthy of inspection but the Dogwood and Magnolia nines perhaps have the edge over the Palmetto circuit.

Originally designed by Ellis Maples, the course at Orangeburg Country Club was renovated by Richard Mandell in 2009. It’s a testing track, with the 615-yard par five 18th regarded as one of the toughest closing holes in the region.
Ellis Maples laid out the course at the Country Club of South Carolina where the shimmering waters of Black Creek wind their way around a number of the fairways.
