The best courses to play in South Carolina

Kiawah Island Ocean Course

The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island

Kiawah Island

The Ocean Course will always be atop any player’s wish list when it comes to playing in South Carolina. Designed by master architect Pete Dye in 1991 to host that year’s Ryder Cup, the 7,356-yard layout sits on elevated land that offers views of the Atlantic Ocean from ten of its 18 holes. The course twists and turns through natural dunes, marshland and water with particularly stunning holes including the par-3 17th, which is an over-water terror, and the par-4 18th, with its green set against a backdrop of dunes and ocean.
