At Charleston National Golf Club, course architect Rees Jones found a new muse in the varied, natural terrain of the Intracoastal Waterway. The famous channel runs right along the 7,046-yard course, putting water hazards in play on five holes and marshland on several others, making it critical for golfers to execute accurate shots or attach dog tags to their golf balls so they can find their way home. Pine and oak trees roam the rough throughout the course, adding even more obstacles apart from the numerous bunkers and ponds.
Before digging their tee or antique rail spike into the dirt for the first hole, golfers can warm up at the Club's driving range. The all-grass practice area also serves as the training ground for lessons, clinics, and golf camps conducted by Scott's World of Golf.
