Best Golf Courses in South Carolina
With nearly 3,000 miles of beautiful coastline, it makes perfect sense that three extremely popular golf destinations are located on the beautiful lowlands of South Carolina nestled near the coast. Myrtle Beach, Kiawah Island and Hilton Head are all premier golf hubs with plenty of top-notch public and private courses for every level of golfer. The Ocean Course on Kiawah Island offers absolutely stunning seaside views and is considered one of the best public golf courses in the country. To confirm its notoriety, The Ocean Course hosted the 1991 Ryder Cup, the 2012 PGA Championship and will again play host to the PGA Championship in 2021. Yeamans Hall in Charleston & Palmetto Golf Club are both pillars in South Carolina’s rich history of golf. Palmetto Golf Club dates back to 1892 and stakes claim as the second oldest golf course in the United States. Myrtle Beach is home to over 120 golf courses and is anchored by The Dunes Golf & Beach Club located just minutes from the ocean. Within beautiful Hilton Head Island you’ll find Harbour Town Golf Links (recently ranked as a top 100 golf course in America) and Long Cove Golf Club, a Pete Dye masterpiece with remarkable scenery. With warm, playable weather year-round and majestic natural beauty from the coast up to the Blue Ridge Mountains, it’s easy to see why South Carolina is renowned for golf.
