With Charleston’s own chapter in the story of the game of golf (our city is said to be one of the birthplaces of golf in America) and past of hosting the PGA (which has been all over the news recently), it’s the perfect time to explore golf courses in the Holy City.

It’s no secret that Charleston is home to some of the country’s best golf courses, including those designed by Pete Dye, Tom Fazio, and Jack Nicklaus. And with so many to choose from, we’ll make it easier on you — here’s our guide for where to golf in Charleston based on your personality.

(Our wellness tip for any course? Skip the cart and get thousands of steps in on the green.)

The Class Act

Hey there, fancy-pants. You have expensive taste and are known to splurge on the little luxuries in life — including your hobbies. Chances are you’ll enjoy putting on these luxury greens:

⛳️ Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Ocean Course | 1000 Ocean Course Dr., Kiawah Island | Golf Digest’s No. 4 public golf course in the US and a former PGA Championship course, ft. the most seaside holes in the Northern Hemisphere + stunning ocean views.

⛳️Crooked Oaks Course at Seabrook Island Club | 3772 Seabrook Island Rd., Seabrook Island | A members-only golf club in a private oceanfront community with courses set amongst century-old live oaks + a state-of-the-art practice facility.

The Adventurous One

Do you have a bold, upbeat + spunky spirit? Adventurous types make every activity an experience. You choose places off the beaten path and don’t go for the status-quo, which is why we think you’d love teeing off here:

⛳️ The Harbor Course at Wild Dunes Resort | 5891 Palmetto Dr., Isle of Palms | The Harbor Course’s challenging design and fairway along the Intracoastal Waterway will put even the best golfer in your group to the test.

The Introvert

You might be a little quiet and reserved, but your sense of calm is unmatched. If you like to clear your head by spending some time alone on the course, you’ll appreciate these secluded spaces:

⛳️ Patriot’s Point Links on Charleston Harbor | 1 Patriots Point Rd., Mount Pleasant | This classic Charleston course is only five minutes from downtown and offers a secluded getaway ft. a driving range and par 72 championship course.

⛳️ Charleston National Golf Club | 1360 National Dr., Mount Pleasant | This 18-hole, non-resort championship course is considered a “hidden gem,” ft. rolling greens, challenging holes, a practice facility + a clubhouse.

The Social Butterfly

To you, golf is a great excuse to round up some buddies and have fun (while getting in a bit of exercise, of course). Here’s where we think you’ll want to put:

⛳️Topgolf North Charleston | 5000 Topgolf Way, North Charleston | Grab some friends, a few cold drinks and hot apps, and hit the links — er, the bay — at Topgolf (also the perfect place to test your skills if you’re less experienced). Roper St. Francis Healthcare is the proud healthcare sponsor of Topgolf North Charleston.
