RiverTowne Golf Country Club
Golf Club Overview
Home to the only Arnold Palmer signature course in all of Charleston, SC, RiverTowne Country Club is situated among scenic marshlands with 13 holes along the Wando River and Horlbeck Creek. A semi-private club, RiverTowne prides itself on providing guests of all levels the best possible experience throughout their visit, with both friendly staff and the local membership more than happy to assist. The clubhouse features all the modern amenities you would expect including a fully stocked pro shop, bar/restaurant, modern locker rooms and practice facilities all available for use.
This Arnold Palmer design is already established as an LPGA Tour venue and it’s not hard to see why. The relatively flat and open marshland terrain has been sculpted into an absorbing and very natural golf course, with many views of Horlbeck Creek – a sizeable tributary of the nearby Wando River. Good course management is vital on this course to avoid the deep bunkers, small lakes and wetland areas. Around the greens is clinging rough where you will often find your ball coming to a halt after speeding across the well-paced greens. Occasionally the course becomes a bit more tree-lined, particularly the early stages of the back-nine, however, for most of the round the backdrop is open marshland and the views are superb – a real gem of the South Carolina golf collection.
