However, the vast majority of South Carolina’s most famous golf courses are thoroughly modern affairs, headlined by the 1991 Ryder Cup course, Kiawah Island (Ocean) and Long Cove and Harbour Town at Hilton Head.

The waters of Lake Thurmond are visible or come into play on every hole on the Hickory Knob Golf Course. In order to score at Hickory Knob, be prepared to hit every shot in the book.
