It's no surprise golfers of all ages and levels enjoy playing a round or two in the Charleston, South Carolina area; the lowcountry enjoys a warmer-than-average climate year-round that extends the outdoor golf season by a few extra months when compared with other popular golf regions such as the Northeast. The most challenging part of your golf game in Charleston may be the strong ocean breezes, or it just may be the difficulty of choosing among so many world and nationally-ranked courses!
So how did 10Best narrow down our list of top Charleston area golf courses? All of our featured golf courses were selected for their proximity to Charleston, such as Charleston Country Club, the prestige of the course, as seen with the famous Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort and the secluded Yeaman's Hall, as well as beautiful scenery on-course, evidenced by Wild Dune's seaside Links Course and the stunning Daniel Island Club's Beresford Creek. Don't worry – not all of Charleston's golf courses are private clubs!
