Why Lowcountry Golf is So Special

Share this story!

The Lowcountry of South Carolina is one of the more unique areas of the country. The term geographically refers to the area along the South Carolina coast that stretches from Hilton Head up through Georgetown County, and culturally offers its own distinct vibe that draws from Southern, Native American, European, Caribbean and African roots.

Historically, the region for centuries was heavily dependent on agriculture. And the Lowcountry scenery along the Hammock Coast Golf Trail reflects this heritage, with each of its 12 designs situated either on or adjacent to former farming land. Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and Heritage Club are perhaps the most prominent examples, with their abundance of moss-draped oaks, azaleas and marshlands present throughout their designs. The 18th Hole at Caledonia epitomized it: a par four with nothing but the old rice fields to the right that contribute to one of the most picturesque and stunning finishing holes and Lowcountry settings you’ll find anywhere.

Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club has some of the most striking Lowcountry visuals you’ll find along the Trail. When you get to the par three 13th Hole, you will see a peninsula green surrounded by saltwater marsh with long, wispy grass; catch the scent of the saltwater air coming off the ocean nearby; and feel like you’re at a nature preserve with all the surrounding wildlife, from the birds to the occasional alligator.

Perhaps best of all, these spectacular vistas are just part of the total Hammock Coast experience you’ll enjoy along the coastal Georgetown Country region. Here, golf is just one great part of the ultimate vacation setting that features pristine beaches, great year-round weather and a host of attractions (water sports, nature, antiques, fashion, dining, art galleries and festivals, just to name a few) that will leaving you wanting for more.
