The 18-hole course at Lady’s Island Country Club meanders through the forested terrain of its namesake isle, presenting a round filled with dense tree lines, contoured greens, and oversized sand traps. Opened in 1970, the Timothy Freeland–designed layout leads golfers over wide fairways lined with stately trees, demanding precise tee shots or enough golf balls to feed a grove of hungry trees. The expansive boundaries create beautifully sculpted fairways cleaved into the natural landscape, creating a track of uniquely designed holes with no two fairways running directly alongside one another.
Secluded in the tranquil, coastal Low Country of Edisto Island, The Plantation Course at Edisto challenges golfers of all levels while offering breathtaking scenery, exceptional service, top-notch course conditions that are maintained always in player-friendly condition, and five sets of tees. The 6,130-yard layout is hallmarked by towering native live oaks that frame holes 5 and 18, and magnolia trees line hole 11. The course is made of lush Supreme Paspalum Sea Isle grass and meanders through coastal marshland and natural lagoons while also offering narrow fairways with rolling mounds and more than 50 bunkers. As they walk across the green, golfers might even sport native wildlife, including deer and alligators. Edisto's purpose is to offer a supreme golfing experience that revitalizes the senses.
Though the scenery is beautiful, the course can be as challenging as it is picturesque. Well placed tee shots and approaches are requisites to good scoring, and the importance of tee shot placement cannot be overlooked. Those looking for a more intense challenge can move to the back tees and find a very fair but stern test of golf; each hole comes with a set of five tees, leaving the game scalable for players of all experience levels. The 18 championship holes remain harmonious with flowing salt water, moss-draped live oaks, lofty pines, and palmetto trees.
Before or after rounds, players can gear up on all of the necessary elements to make the golfing experience complete at the Edisto Pro Shop. The store's attentive staff is always on hand to assist and answer questions, and are ably equipped to offer recommendations on the shop's extensive inventory of quality merchandise, equipment, accessories, and rental clubs.
