Everyone knows the Ocean Course is tough but it is still very playable for the average golfer because of so many tee locations. I am a relatively high handicapper and really enjoyed myself. My caddie, Kyle, was amazing and the Bob, who checked me in,...More

I’ve played the Ocean Course about a half dozen times over the past 20 years or so. This last round was one of the most enjoyable I’ve ever had. Walking with a caddy feels like you’re being treated like royalty... and guess what, to them...More

This course lives up to its reputation. It is in impeccable conditions, and is a great layout. You should be aware that it is walking only (with caddies) unless you have a medical note.

A great set up, from the bar staff to the golf course to the food. Little touches with water bottles on every three to four holes, the knowledge of the caddies and the fact they are there to help you have a good time and...More

The course is outstanding which is why the PGA is hosting their Championship here in two years. Plenty of sand, water, and alligators:-)

What an amazing gold course and experience! This is worth the price of admission. I was fortunate enough to catch it on a beautiful day, which made the round that much more enjoyable. If you are staying on the island or in the Charleston area,...More
