Members and their guests
In the oft-quoted words of William Faulkner, "the past is never dead; it's not even past," and so it is that this establishment in South Carolina has seen fit to style itself Secession Golf Club in honor of the charter for the Confederate States that was drawn up not far from here and that presaged the deaths of so many hundreds of thousands. The membership seems mainly to be drawn from outside the American South, and so is presumably somewhat unclear about the motivation behind the "Ordinance of Secession" that the club glorifies. At least it has the decency to use only a stylized version of the Confederate flag on its logo. The course was laid out by Bruce Devlin, and he tried to distinguish it from the many others in the area by adopting a less-is-more approach and letting the surroundings dictate the shapes of the holes and their relationships to one another.
