The Arnold Palmer-designed course at RiverTowne Country Club is a real treat, as is The Links at Stono Ferry which was voted South Carolina Golf Course of the Year in 2011, and Charleston National Golf Club is another great layout that weaves through the marshes and is surrounded by a range of natural beauty.

Despite the excellent offering around Charleston, the opportunity to play the famous The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort is not one to be missed. The layout played host to the 1991 Ryder Cup and the PGA Championships of 2012 and 2021, and will test every part of your game. Away from The Ocean Course, Kiawah Island Golf Resort is also home to courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Fazio, adding enviable variety to a visit to the resort.

A golf holiday combining Charleston and Kiawah Island gives you the chance to experience an array of top-quality courses within a truly beautiful setting.
