Lady"s Island Country Club 

The 6,500 yard, par 72 golf course offers you challenging golf and breathtaking views! Designer Russell Breeden displays his masterpiece surrounded by the untouched wildlife in Beaufort, South Carolina.

Plush Bermuda greens and strategically placed bunkers, offers a challenge to every caliber of player.

Located within the clubhouse is a full service restaurant and a well stocked pro shop. Let Country Club of Beaufort show you what southern hospitality means.

 Dataw Island

Six miles east of Beaufort, Dataw Island boasts two championship golf courses designed by Tom Fazio and Arthur Hills. Combine this with the marina, tennis courts, and stunning clubhouse and you'll see that Dataw Island is better than a resort. Lots, townhomes, and single family homes available also.

 Fripp Island

 Our friendly ocean front resort counts many blessings - 3 1/2 miles of Atlantic beach, a balmy year-round climate and a bridge that sets our island apart from crowds, traffic and any trace of worry.

At Fripp Island Resort, South Carolina, the mission is you. They make it easy for you to relax, savor the natural bounty and enjoy all your favorite activities from golf and tennis to swimming and crabbing.

Fripp Island is home to TWO exquisite golf course.

Ocean Point
George Cobb, famed golf course designer and consultant to Augusta National, designed Ocean Point Golf Links, a true seaside links course.

Ocean Point has been boldly renovated to take advantage of the sweeping vistas throughout the course. It now boasts dramatic views of the ocean or inlet on 10 of the 18 holes with the front and back nine both finishing against a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.

Golf Digest gives Ocean Point a 4 STAR rating and it is a recipient of the Golden Links Award by Corporate Meetings & Incentives Magazine.

 

 

 

Ocean Creek
On the south end of the island is Ocean Creek, Davis Love III's first signature course. Ocean Creek offers magnificent panoramic views of the Great Salt Marsh and freshwater lakes amid four ancient rolling dune lines that come into play. Wildlife is abundant throughout this picturesque sanctuary.

 Deer, Snowy White egrets, Great Blue herons, ospreys and an occasional alligator present a pleasant distraction in their natural habitat. Golf Magazine named Ocean Creek "one of the top 10 new courses you can play" and Golf Digest awarded it a 4.5 STAR rating.

 

Oldfield 

 

 

Overlooking a spectacular horseshoe bend in the Okatie River, Oldfield's 800 acres are replete with the dramatic vistas and moss-draped live oaks for which the area is know.

 A highly anticipated Greg Norman-designed golf course is being created here.

 

 South Carolina National Golf Club

South Carolina National Golf Club is the latest gem to be added to The Fripp Company's island golf collection. This 18 hole course is located on Cat Island, a 432-acre barrier island two miles southeast of Beaufort and a 50-minute drive from Hilton Head.

South Carolina National is George Cobb's last creation and showcases all of his design wiles. The layout takes full advantage of Cat Island's densely wooded interior.

Centuries-old live oaks, artistically draped with Spanish moss, frame many scenes. Several holes play along the marsh, offering shimmering views of Port Royal Sound.

 Elevated greens add golfing challenges, while providing perfect platforms to survey the surrounding scenery. South Carolina National's Tiftdwarf Bermuda greens provide a well-manicured surface for putting perfection.

Beaufort SC has a little something for everyone. If you are interested in golf lessons, tennis lessons, or even a kayak lesson or two. I am happy to help arrange those for your visit to our charming little town.

Hi Cherimie.  Probably a great post to write.  I should do one similar for my area.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

You changed your picture to an interesting one.  How did you choose this one?

I have never ventured out to the islands other than Hilton Head  sounds like I've been missing out on some wonderful golf.
