Surf Golf & Beach Club

62nd South Carolina - Best in Area

Situated in North Myrtle Beach, the Surf Golf & Beach Club course is a demanding George Cobb design from 1960 that was renovated by John LaFoy in the mid-1990s, when the architect converted all the greens to bentgrass putting surfaces.

Palmetto Dunes (Robert Trent Jones)

63rd South Carolina - Best in Area

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.

Wexford Plantation

64th South Carolina - Best in Area

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.

Glen Dornoch Waterway

65th South Carolina - Best in Area

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.

Callawassie Island (Dogwood & Magnolia)

66th South Carolina - Best in Area

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.

Walker Course at Clemson University

67th South Carolina - Best in Area

Home to the Clemson Tigers golf team, the Walker Course at Clemson University is a DJ DeVictor design that brings Hartwell Lake into play – especially at the signature “Tiger Paw” 17th – during the last five holes on the scorecard.

Orangeburg

68th South Carolina - Best in Area

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.

Country Club of South Carolina

69th South Carolina - Best in Area

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.

A Pete and P. B. Dye semi-private course that opened for play in 1989, the 18-hole layout at The Windermere Club is more than capable of serving up an engaging round of golf.
