Tee It Up at Charleston Place

April 16, 2013 By:Five Star Alliance

Charleston PlaceCharleston, SC is a golfer's paradise.  According to Golf Magazine, Charleston is home to two of the "100 Greatest Golf Courses in the World." There are more  than 20 courses in the Charleston area to choose from; from the Rivertowne Country Club, which offers 13 holes along the Wando River and Horlbeck Creek to Charleston National, an 18 hole championship course designed by the renowned golf course architect Rees Jones,  to the Links at Stono Ferry, which  is a championship par 72 golf course located along the Intracoastal Waterway. Many golf architects have proclaimed their Charleston area courses as some of their best, including Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Pete Dye, Gary Player, Tom Fazio and Rees Jones.

Unlike some other golf destinations, Charleston is generally not crowded with golfers, which  results in a greater array of  tee times and golfers who can take their time hitting the links.  Morevoer, it's always a good time of year to play golf in the Charleston area, where average high temperatures range from 57°F to 89°F. The 94th PGA Championship was one of many tournaments played in Charleston, so you know the golfing is good.
