The Ocean Course was on my "bucket list" of courses to play, and it certainly did not disappoint. The drive from the resort to the course is fantastic, and feeling the strong wind as you walk up to the clubhouse provides you with a bit of foreshadowing of what to expect during the round. The staff, facilities, and grounds were... More

While I am not a golfer, my dad is a big golfer. So while I was down in Charleston, I stopped here to get some pictures for him and go to the club house. The course looks beautiful. It is obviously a little expensive because it is right on the beach. They have a pretty cool gift shop as well.... More

I have been wanting to play the Ocean Course for a long time, and it didn't disappoint. The course was in impeccable shape and I love the finishing hole with the ocean and the clubhouse (make a great 2nd shot, they are watching from the porch). It is essential to have a caddie or forecaddie. Try to go out early... More

I was fortunate to be part of a foursome that played before a company event. I flew in a day early just to get to play the course. I was nervous about playing the course with three people I had never met before, but found the course very manageable if I just played my game (I was playing with three... More

A great experience even for an average golfer, if you play the right tees. Our caddie Andrew was from Iowa which made us feel at home. Ocean holes make it all worth while

The course and setting are as excellent as the reviews and ratings would suggest. Staff did a great job of keeping things moving. Our caddy, Joe, was excellent and helped me score much better that I would have ever hoped on such a difficult course.

Played the ocean course this Sunday and had perfect weather. My caddie, John, was excellent and enhanced my golfing experience. The course was in great shape, greens were honest, the rough wasn't super tough to hit out of. Practice facilities were also well kept - titleist balls on the range. Played some great courses all over the world, this is... More

Armed with hundreds of golf balls and dire warnings ringing in our ears we arrived to play the Ocean Course. In short, it's as good as advertised but not as difficult as was expected. I suspect this was due to the incredibly benign weather - 22c and a gentle breeze off the sea. Our three ball plays 6,600 yards at... More
