Shannon Greens Golf Club (formerly known as Clarendon Golf & Country Club) in Santee incorporates three different lakes, Lake Santee, Lake Marion, and Lake Moultrie. Santee is one of the East Coast's premier golfing destinations and Shannon Greens still manages to stand out among the area's great courses. The golf course sprawls across gently rolling hills studded with towering California pines. It is definitely a shot-maker's course that will require the use of all the clubs in your bag. There are challenges in store, but it is a fairly open layout that is much more forgiving than it seems though golfers will have to contend with a lot of water. The course offers some great scoring opportunities, making it easier for beginners to approach with confidence. Shannon Greens Golf Club's 16th hole is one of the most memorable and scenic holes thanks to its island green.

Great Value in Clarendon County

Clarendon County in South Carolina boasts one of the largest man-made lakes in the United States. Lake Marion was completed in 1941 as part of a national rural electrification initiative. Since the late 20th century, the dam's generation of hydroelectric power has stimulated the economic development and industry in the region.

As you can imagine, fishing is popular in this part of the state. While the county is known for its championship-level catches of striped bass, Reader’s Digest magazine once rated Lake Marion as one of “America’s 100 Best” for fishing, specifically catfish. Recently, anglers from all over the country competed at the Bassmaster Elite Tournament.

Clarendon County sits tucked away between several well-known golf destinations and is home to some hidden gems. As a golfer, there are three courses in Clarendon County that you should know about.

Shannon Greens is the perfect golf course for those that are new to the game or are wanting to get in a good practice round. Experienced golfers will find that the greens are a little smaller which will test your accuracy. Several holes are short with hazards along the way, meaning you can’t hit your driver on every hole, so course management can become a challenge. Most of the greens are protected by bunkers, too. The 2nd hole is a challenging par 5 that plays 458 yards. It’s a dogleg left that doesn’t really turn until the end. Although short, getting there in two can be a challenge because of the stream that crosses in front of the green. Number 7 is the course’s signature hole and a little touch of TPC Sawgrass. It's a 140-yard par 3 with an island green.

For me, getting out and exploring local “mom-and-pop” restaurants is a fringe benefit to what I do. Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the restaurants in the area all offer something unique. Of course, you can never go wrong with breakfast at Shoney’s and their buffet!

Georgios is one exit down I-95 and has some of the best pizzas in the area. They also offer some delectable Italian food as well.

The Mill Street Grill features a laid-back atmosphere and some great food. Their deep-fried pickles were outstanding, and most entrees include at least one trip to a well-stocked salad bar. The menu features a little bit of everything from burgers and fries to prime rib on the weekend.

It’s easy to find lunch at one of these little hometown restaurants. Sub Station II is located near downtown Manning and serves some first-rate sandwiches: the meat is cut right in front of you. Their menu may seem somewhat limited but no matter what you order, it’ll taste great.

Currently, none of the local Clarendon County golf courses offer any lodging. A great hotel just off I-95 is the Hampton Inn. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well equipped with cable TV and coffee makers – two of my hotel necessities. They offer a complimentary breakfast buffet with both hot and cold items, fruits, yogurts, breads, and pastries. They are also centrally located; less than 15 minutes to each course.

Burger Chick was my favorite; the servings were plentiful and delicious. My wife went for the giant hamburger basket and said it was one of the best burgers she has had in a while. I had the two-piece fish dinner and had trouble finishing it. Their cole slaw is incredible!

If these golf courses were in a more populated area, they would probably receive a lot more play. That’s good news for golf travelers, who will find that booking tee times and lodging is easy and inexpensive.

This Course needs to be taken off of GolfNow

Paid almost $40/person to play this cow pasture. Worst course i’ve ever played. This is just straight up facts, not trying to discourage anybody from going to play a round. I was very disappointed when i arrived at the putting/chipping green. Half of it was dead, the other half was somewhat okay to practice on. This course has a very nice layout but is in poor shape. The only good i got out of this were the greens. And they were in okay shape. But so far in my life, i’d have to say that this ranks last in all the courses. I’m not dinging the owner or staff but it needs some TLC. Especially when you have folks from out of town that expect some what of a good course to play on. However it was a beautiful day to play, just wish i wouldn’t have got overcharged.

Welp, maybe check around

Sad to say, this course seems to be on its last legs. The tee boxes are crap, the fairways are crap, the greens are crap. The cart path is crap too. I imagine once upon a time this was a good course. Now looks like it's broke or whoever keeps the grounds doesn't have a clue. Desk guy was cool and friendly but I probably won't be playing here again.

Nice layout but not worth the drive

The course has potential with a nice layout but you can tell it just doesn't have the money to maintain it properly. Dry bare weedy fairways, very hard greens and beat up bare tees. The range was absolutely horrible. Not sure how you can charge someone for range balls when using that range. There was no grass and you had to find weeds to hit from. And then it is really short so no wood warm up. Good parts were. It wasn't busy, nice layout, forgiving and challenging, greens rolled well, staff is friendly.

Noone home

Arrived at 745, from Charleston. The hours posted were 730 to 530. I was the only car in the parking lot, aside from a few golf carts. Went to clubhouse and the dead bolt was on the door. Noone there. Stayed until 800 still locked up, Noone there. I did see a gentleman bring a cart out when I drove up but he disappeared and I never saw him again. I arrived early to hit some practice balls and have something to eat before going out. When there was noone there by 800 I left and drove back to Charleston. Trying to seek refund from Golfnow or the club, no luck so far, via emails

Best little course in SC

Always a pleasure to play at Shannon Greens. They have really made great changes over the pass year or so. New sod and new golf carts too!
The staff are amazing and will go out of their way to ensure a good time.
And the beer is the coldest around! Ice chips in the cans!
Looking forward to my next visit.
Thanks for your customer service, Wade! :-)

Shannon greens

Great layout that presents a challenge the staff works hard with what they have. Easy to navigate. The staff is very personable and makes the experience worth while. Staff, paid or volunteers, do the most to make the course more enjoyable daily. Would recommend this course to anybody from beginners to skilled golfers! Just minutes from the interstate, make this course a stop!
