Santee National Golf Club
Santee National Golf Club possesses all of the charms of the Carolina Lowcountry but it is also nicely contrasted with highland terrain. The course sprawls across rolling hills covered with moss-draped live oaks that demand accuracy. Both the scenery and the challenges continue with pristine white sand bunkers that stand out against the lush greens. There are also five sparkling lakes throughout that come into play on several holes. The front nine is wide open but the course narrows as you move onto the back nine and it also becomes more wooded. It is a tough golf course but more forgiving than it seems. As the only Golf Digest 4-star rated course in the area, Santee National has a longstanding reputation with locals and it is also popular with visitors.

Solid course, lots of bugs!
Course was in good condition, pretty manageable for the average player. Greens were in great condition and rolled true. Only complaint is the bugs...the back 9 was hard to get through because gnats we’re circling your head at all times. Overall would recommend.
ryancbeckner, thank you for your 4-star recommendation and great feedback! We apologize for any inconvenience regarding bugs on the back 9, but your feedback is important to our team as we continuously work on course improvements. We hope to see you again very soon at Santee National Golf Club for an even better golf experience!
I'm not a good golfer but this course is fun and challenging. It has dog legs left and right, water and sand traps, and large greens.
Thank you for visiting us at Santee National Golf Club. We truly appreciate your 4-star feedback and hope you join us for another round soon!

Nice Little Spot
Greens had just been aerated, but still not awful. Just in the area and wanted to check out this little gem. Will be back, when it’s not so hot. Lol. Not a long course, but accurate shots are rewarded. Pace of play was good. Planning a fishing/golf trip in the fall and this one will be on the list.

The course is beautiful
The course is in great shape. Carts were nice, restrooms on course clean. However, play was painfully slow. When we came to 10th fairway, waited at least 20-25 minutes to tee off. It was not a crowded course. Outside of that, we did enjoy our round.

Best golf course in and around Summerville/Charleston area.
Yes this hidden jewel is way out in Santee- it's 40 minutes from Summerville. SC. However, it is well worth the drive. The course is always in fantastic shape. The greens are well maintained and roll true. Fairways are cut correctly and are in excellent shape. Since finding this course on Golf Now about 6 months ago, I have played there over 15 times. Not once did I have a bad experience. The staff is professional and friendly, The course itself is challenging if you can't put your ball in the fairway but not to the point where you want to chunk your clubs into the nearest water hazard. In short, Santee National is a well run, well maintained golf course that puts the fun back into golf. No matter how many balls I hit into the water on #2..

Very enjoyable course.
Course is in great shape with large fast greens that rolled true. Unfortunately we had two foursomes ahead of us that appeared to be friends playing against each other and they were slow, slow slow. Made for a long day. I certainly would recommend playing this course if in the area. It's a 1 1/2 hour drive from Newberry but I'll be back.

Great Day of Golf
My bud and I really enjoyed the entire experience. The course (fairways and greens) is truly in great condition. We drive a hour to reach the track and play it 7-8 times throughout the year. The course has yet to disappoint! Anytime you're coming to the Santee area you need to give this track a try.
Thank you for visiting us at Santee National Golf Club. We truly appreciate your dedication to playing our course and great feedback! We look forward to having you back for another 5-star round soon.
