When most people think of golf and South Carolina, they usually think of Myrtle Beach or Hilton Head. Charleston is rarely considered by most as a great destination for a quality golf vacation. This belief, while incorrect, is advantageous to people who know better. Forget the more popular places to play golf in South Carolina, there are over 35 championship courses around Charleston to play and you won't have to worry about finding good tee times at crowed resorts.

In fact, Charleston was home to the first golf course in America. Harleston Green was established in 1786 at what is now downtown Charleston. It is widely believed that the term ‘green fee' was coined here as a means of maintaining this course. Harleston Green is obviously no more, yet the tradition of golfing excellence lives on in Charleston.

There is certainly no shortage of challenging golf courses in Charleston. Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Pete Dye, Gary Player, Tom Fazio and Rees Jones all have designed courses here. That being said, there are plenty of courses for the average to below average golfers just looking for a fun day out on the links.
