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.

Nice course

Very well maintained fairways and greens. Tight lies on fairways make Bermuda grass less troublesome in most cases. Bunker sand was a bit coarse and thin for my taste but certainly playable. Convenient and clean restrooms on both nines. Warm up bucket included with green fees. Definite keeper!

Family Day

Played this course for the first time with my wife and brother. The course was challenging and rewarding. The only issue was that on one hole they had a sprinkler issue. Had a great time and would definitely recommend this course

Nice course

Fun course, good layout. Only downside was the bunkers. Some had little sand and it appeared that they hadn't been raked in some time.

Nice layout.

Overall, the course was very nice. A few of the greens had burnt spots. I'm guessing the course gets many covid golfers because I repaired probably 70 ball marks during my round. It was a 1 1/2 hour drive for me but worth it for the price.

Great Value

I've played this course before and it's very nice and out of the way. The speed of play was great and the conditions were great also. The staff is very nice and accommodating and they paired us up with a very nice member couple, Wes and Sue.
