Seth Raynor designed the original course for Yeamans Hall, a members-only establishment named for a certain John Yeamans who was a leading figure in South Carolina in colonial times. The site features abundant natural flora, from grasses to hardwoods and evergreens, that combine to make it quite attractive. The staff is welcoming and most attentive, which helps to make up for the ho-hum practice areas and the humble lodge-style clubhouse; the maintenance is in any case superb. Measuring only 6162 meters off the back, the highly strategic layout features enormous, deeply contoured and often rectangular greens. Among the standout holes are the 400-yard, par 4 5th, designed to resemble Prestwick's famous Alps hole, and the 11th, done in the style of St. Andrews' Old Course. Tom Doak spent at decade near the end of the twentieth century ensuring that Yeamans Hall maintains Raynor's vision.
