Pete Dye created the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, and it's a doozey. Fortunately the stunning seaside vistas help to distract most players from the punishment that Dye's design metes out, as does the knowledgeable and reassuring staff. Some will recall the 1991 Ryder Cup here, when no one was immune to the incessant breezes. The front nine features tight fairways lined with bunkering; the back offers more of a links-like experience with ample fairways and greens defended by more bunkers. The most memorable hole is the watery par 3 17th. The layout is not really walkable owing to the distances between the clubhouse and the 1st and between the two nines, though renovations in the early 2000s made it so that the 18th winds up at the clubhouse. When planning a trip here be sure to allow for the considerable time it takes to get to the clubhouse from the entry gate.

My favorite course in the South. It's a Pete Dye design along the coast of South Carolina. You can hear alligators nearby if you listen close enough. It's mostly flat but has lots of challenging shot values throughout the course. Pray that it's not windy the day you play!!

The best "links championship" experience in the USA! Mind-blowing, especially if you get paired with a great caddy like we did...
