golf

The private, award-winning 18-hole Championship Golf Course is arguably one of the best South Carolina has to offer and is currently the '2009 Club of the Year'. Designed by famed golf course architect, Tom Fazio, the par-72 layout offers a course that is both graceful and dramatic in its contrasts. Recognizing the historical significance of the land, Fazio masterfully weaved the course through the plantation to create a stunning yet playable course for golfers of every level.

The golf course is available to Cottage Rental Guests. Tee times may be booked by contacting the Pro Golf Shop at 843-357-1500.


Tennis

Like the golf course, the tennis courts may be used by cottage rental guests. Offered are eight HarTru Clay courts for spirited competition or leisure play. With five lighted courts, tennis after dark is available to enjoy. The teaching staff is without par and there are a host of opportunities for serious competition as well lighthearted rivalries.

The tennis courts may be used any time by our guests for a $15.00 court fee. Contact the Tennis Professional Staff at 843-357-5129 to register and reserve a court.
