About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6858
Slope 128
Rating 72.9
Type Semi-Private
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.

Unique course layout

I have 4 dogs, so my joke for the course is that I'm sure there are more dog legs on the course than in my own home. I was surprised the par 3's didn't have dog legs. But seriously, it was a great course. It isnt long, but its personality presents it's own challenges. The greens were in great shape, good speed, and the fringes were puttable. Overall, it was a great course and I would beyond a shadow of a doubt play again.

Great Course

Very hilly, be prepared to adjust yardages to compensate for elevation changes. Well conditioned, greens rolled true and fast. We played 36 holes and I never had to roll my ball in the fairway to get out of a bad spot.

Good round. Good course.

Santee National remains one of the most affordable and we'll maintained courses around.. there are new golf carts. All the fairways were nice and green. The greens were in good shape The restrooms were clean. The bridge on hole 10 needs to be replaced. Otherwise it was a good golf outting.

One of the best in the south

Have played here numerous times. Always a treat. Greens were faster than normal which made for some challenging putting. Course conditions were A+++++.

Nice fairways, otherwise meh.

Pro: nice fairways, that’s about it. Con: pace of play (2-3 groups on each par 3), greens were fast and true, but looked dead. Traps were water filled holes (no recent rain). Snack shop lady was the rudest golf staff I have ever encountered! Overall, poor value for even $ 45.
