Charleston is among the most-preferred golf destinations in the Southeast, offering a variety of premiere public and private championship courses characterized by challenging design and natural beauty. And with the city's host of pleasurable amenities that include dazzling beaches, gloriously historic architecture, stunning gardens and excellent restaurants, a tee time in the Charleston area is a date not to be missed.

Charleston's barrier islands feature golden sands, foaming surf and a host of championship courses, including five award-winning links on Kiawah Island alone designed by Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Gary Player and Clyde Johnston. Kiawah's fabulous Ocean Course wends its way past incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean, and has hosted the 2007 Senior PGA, the 1991 Ryder Cup, 1997 and 2003 World Cups, 2001 UBS Cup, 2005 PGA Professional National Championship, and in 2012 will host the PGA Championship. The Turtle Point Course is longest on Kiawah and features narrow fairways, small greens and difficult water hazards for a great test of golfing skills; the Osprey Point Course is a Kiawah favorite for its gorgeous layout amid four large, natural lakes and its elegant clubhouse and dining room; the Oak Point Course is a great all-around course featuring river views from the site of an historic indigo and rice plantation; and the Cougar Point Course offers scenery and strategy on short par-fours that demand good targeting skills to avoid natural obstacles. Golf training packages and a Golf Learning Center enhance the Kiawah experience for golfers at every level.

Next door at Seabrook Island, the Crooked Oaks Course designed by Robert Trent Jones and the Ocean Winds Course designed by William Byrd offer 36 holes and more than 13,000 yards of wonderful views of ocean waves, beachfront, marsh, tidal creeks and maritime forest along windswept fairways.
On the Isle of Palms, Wild Dunes Resort features the 6700-yard Links Course, a Tom Fazio design amid rolling dunes and towering palms within a short stroll to the island's dazzling beach. The 6500-yard Harbor Course wends its way through breath-taking waterway views and lagoons. Seabrook Island, and Edisto Island, five more beautifully-sculpted courses by legendary designers overlook pounding surf, maritime forest and marsh estuary.

Daniel Island boasts championship golf in a comfortable natural setting amid marshes, tidal creeks and lagoons that attract wood storks, herons and egrets. The Tom Fazio-designed Beresford Creek Course and the Rees Jones-designed Ralston Creek Course are both in excess of 7,000 yards and have earned Daniel Island distinction as one of "America's Top 100 Golf Communities" named by Travel + Leisure Golf magazine in 2006.

James Island, Mount Pleasant, North Charleston, West Ashley and Johns Island also feature more than a dozen exceptional public and private golfing facilities designed by the likes of Rees Jones and Arnold Palmer along riverfront, tidal marsh, lagoon and amid towering oaks and pines. At Stono Ferry Plantation, the immaculate waterfront course is laid out on the site of military fortifications from the Revolution and Civil War. The Links at Charleston National Golf Club has earned award-winning acclaim from Golf Digest, Travel + Leisure Golf, and Where To Retire magazines for its dramatic layout along waterways and coastal forest, while Arnie's signature Rivertowne Country Club Course was named South Carolina Course of the Year in 2004, and earned 4.5 stars in Golf Digest magazine's "Places to Play" for its lush setting amid tidal creeks and rivers and its accommodation of skill levels that range from 5300 to 7200 yards.

Among the enjoyable public courses in scenic locations around Charleston are the Patriot's Point Links, a championship 18-hole course overlooking Charleston Harbor and Fort Sumter, and the Charleston Municipal Golf Course that borders the beautiful Stono River and offers 18 holes of oak-lined fairways.
Charleston's sunny, sub-tropical climate allows golf to be pleasurably enjoyed throughout the year, including some prestigious social and sporting events such as the annual Azalea Golf Classic at the historic Country Club of Charleston each Spring. Charleston was the site of the first golf club in America, established downtown at Harleston Green in 1786, and the golfing tradition has been firmly been upheld with distinction ever since.
