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.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in South Carolina
Tee boxes, fairways and greens in good shape.
Bunkers thin and had small rocks . These need sand. Greens are to read. Some of that was the grain. Weather was great. Can’t hit driver off every tee and some par threes from the white are 200 yards - yikes.
Nice Course. Overall Well with some really nice holes through the wood. Only problem are the mosquitoes. Take a repellent with you!!! Apart from that good value for money.
There was no starter.
Person in pro shop acted as starter.
That person didn’t regulate when players started sufficiently.
Therefore there were many bottlenecks slowing the pace down. I spent more time waiting for the players in front of me than I did actually playing.
Great value! Nice staff.
I would recommend this course to anyone who loves golf! Friendly staff and in good shape.
Great golf experience
Staff was very helpful and friendly.
Course was and greens were in very good considering the time of year after the busy summer season.
Very enjoyable game
Went to Santee to avoid Hurricane Dorian and took the opportunity to play at Santee. A great course in very good condition.
Very enjoyable day and would have loved to have played it again before heading back to Hilton Head Island. If you are in the area it’s well worth playing.
The Greens were superb
Great course. Fairways were lush. Like playing on a professional course. Perfect getaway.
Another good day at Santee National
Play this course two or three times a year. Not near anything, but a 45 minute drive from Summerville (home) and 1:15 from Charleston. Course in good shape, greens don't look perfect but are true. Had a day of half decent humidity and very-decent temperature for summer in SC. Staff is friendly and play is not jammed up in summer.
Course is in excellent shape, staff is always friendly.
Course is in good condition
Course was in good condition. The club pro let us go off the back to avoid a 20 member shotgun start group which would of made the day really long. If I could change something, add distant markers. Only had 150 markers.
My son and I made the trip from Columbia several times. It is a great place to play. The course is well maintained and the greens are spectacular! The staff is very friendly and make this course a must play.
Great SC golf experience
Course was in phenomenal shape, much better than my last round in April.
First time in the area. I loved the layout. I guess they've had a lot of rain lately as a lot of the bunkers were full of water and all needed attention. The fairways are impeccable. Greens are still healing from aeration. Staff was super friendly. Had a blast and recommend...
Great course, very good condition. Only problem was the sand traps were less than average, some unplayable. Had a very good time and would recommend this course to anyone looking for a nice course at a good value.
Great Time, Great Course!
The fairways were superb and the greens were in perfect condition. We enjoyed everything about this course and We will be back despite the hour long drive from northeast Columbia. It was worth it! I highly recommend this course.
Great round at Santee National.
Really nice condition and interesting layout. Don't miss this one!
Fun round of golf
Course was in very good shape greens were FAST will play there again
