South Carolina is home to some of the most beautiful golf courses in the country. But if you don’t play, you probably don’t care all that much. And if you do play, but play badly, it’s likely that you care just a little bit more. Which is OK, we get it. As fun as it is to be part of the group, if your game isn’t quite there, you’ll more than likely be focusing on things other than the sport. Which is exactly why we found some courses in the Lowcountry that’ll appeal to everyone: the avid golfer, the shopper, the one you bring along just to drive the cart, and even that friend who thinks the best thing about the game is those fuzzy animal-head club covers.
For many, this public course is the crown jewel of Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s multiple golf courses. Sure, it could be the fact that several scenes from The Legend of Bagger Vance were shot there. But really, those views of the Atlantic Ocean, coupled with the fact that it’s situated on the same property as The Sanctuary (one of South Carolina’s most elegant boutique hotels), are enough reason for anyone to visit... even if you hate the game.
