Designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, Crescent Pointe Golf Club’s 18-hole, 6,773-yard course takes golfers on a journey through the shadows of skyscraping pines and oaks amid the unfurled petals of blooming magnolias. Generous fairways provide ample runways for flush drives and golf-obsessed extra terrestrials, and the course compensates with dramatically sloped, elevated greens with enough subtle breaks to give any smooth-putting golflete a case of the yips. The par 71 presents birdie opportunities at all three of its par 5's, though each one will challenge club-flailing composure with forced-carry water hazards. Expansive beach bunkers threaten to ensnare wayward balls on several holes, where conservative players would be wise to simply wedge the ball back into the fairway and pay a one-stroke fealty to their despotic sand-trap rakes. To prepare for rounds, divoteers can straighten out unsightly slices and snap-hooks at the club’s driving range or sign up for a lesson with PGA professional Stephen Neville.

Designed by 25-time PGA Tour tournament winner Davis Love III, Eagle's Pointe Golf Club's 18-hole, 6,738-yard course unfurls an emerald map of kempt fairways sculpted through oaks and pines and kissed by native wetlands. Throughout the course, tree-lined fairways criss-cross lowland water hazards to form an intermediately long layout where off-kilter swings may result in lost balls and winded golf carts. Sporting the boldly contoured greens that have become Davis Love III's calling card, the course places a high premium on pinpoint approaches that leave manageable two-putts. To prepare for rounds, players can warm up their swings at the driving range, where grass hitting areas emulate course conditions alongside artificial mats that wait eternally for the stinging rip of a divot to validate their claim to authentic existence.

Once the site of a horse farm, the grounds at Old Carolina Golf Club now cushion the footfalls of a different type of shoe. Across the 9-hole, 3,365-yard course, golfers dig their spiky soles into fairways lined with everything from palm trees to Carolina pines to bunkers filled with grains of sand so white that golf balls mistake them for family members.

Designed by ASGCA member Clyde Johnston—the veteran course architect behind dozens of courses in the southeastern United States—Old Carolina Golf Club makes artful use of its surrounding scenery. White fences staked into the turf hearken back to the course's equestrian roots, and water hazards populated by native waterfowl and alligators add to the grounds' lowcountry charm.
