Santee Cooper Country Club is the sister course to Lake Marion, which sits less than 15 minutes away. Both courses are known for their exceptional greens that offer fast, smooth putting surfaces. The course wanders through the forests of majestic pines and native vegetation that border Lake Marion. The fairways are lined with trees and form twisting doglegs that can be quite tricky to navigate. The layout consists of an interesting mix of holes including challenging par 3s and risk-reward par 5s, which are all spread across a variety of different elevation changes. It is a golf course that will test your skills with different shot requirements, so be prepared to use every club in your bag. Santee Cooper Country Club finishes with one of the best closing holes in the area, which is partly memorable for its beautiful panoramic view of the lake.

Great Round

Great golf course for the money. I got a Hot Deal and decided to drive the 45 minutes. Got there early and was allowed to go straight to the tee (7:30am). Followed a 4 some, but didn't have to wait a long time, even as a single playing two balls. Course was in good shape (better than some others I've played in the low country for the same money). Greens were a little inconsistent with speed, but rolled true and smooth. I'll be back.

Not bad, not amazing

Standard 4 star golf course, good not great conditions and layout. I was first player off at 7:30 and when I got to hole 11 they sent a shotgun scramble off all over the course without telling me and I got stuck in the middle of it. Luckily it seemed to all be members and they were nice enough to let me play through but didn’t appreciate not being told and having groups come out of nowhere and being stuck in the middle of it.

Very nice greens, BUT....

we played in Santee for four straight days. Out of all the area courses, this one had BY FAR the best greens. They were perfect. The only problem was, whoever set the pin locations has no idea what they are doing. There were three pin locations that were almost impossible. On 17, the pin was cut on the very edge of a slope that ran off the green (middle left). Any putt above the hole had no chance of staying on the green unless it hit the hole. Putts from below the hole would come right back off the green if they did not go in. If the pin were cut four feet further to the right, there would have been no issue. This was also the case on 8 (front right) and 9 (back left) Golf course staff, I hope you read this. If you are concerned about pace of play, especially when a large group visits, do yourselves a favor and place the pins in a more favorable location.
