Santee National Golf Club possesses all of the charms of the Carolina Lowcountry but it is also nicely contrasted with highland terrain. The course sprawls across rolling hills covered with moss-draped live oaks that demand accuracy. Both the scenery and the challenges continue with pristine white sand bunkers that stand out against the lush greens. There are also five sparkling lakes throughout that come into play on several holes. The front nine is wide open but the course narrows as you move onto the back nine and it also becomes more wooded. It is a tough golf course but more forgiving than it seems. As the only Golf Digest 4-star rated course in the area, Santee National has a longstanding reputation with locals and it is also popular with visitors.

Nice course

First time playing and it was a nice course. This goes to all course’s out in America. It gets old being paired with other golfers all the time so they can get as much golfers/ money. I get it but I have had some fun times and some horrible times. There should be some kind of rules or something for this. You can’t pair scratch golfers with people that can’t break 100. That slows play down so bad. It’s not enjoyable.

Bunkers suck.

I would have given the course conditions 5 stars if the bunkers were playable. Some of the bunkers are full of water and some are just mud. One of the other courses in the area is redoing there bunkers and Santee National should follow their example.

Flat front nine, hilly back nine

Course was cart path only due to previous day’s showers & poor course drainage. Terrible customer service @ check-in and a rude, curt employee (I think was head pro) who obviously didn’t want to be there. The golf cart had break problems and the cart paths were in absolutely the worst condition possible—dug up, rutted out, had big rocks on them and mostly torn completely up! What a mess! With a lot of work, course could be made worth the price but right now it’s rip-off city!!

Shiver Your Teeth Out

Worse cart paths I’ve every seen—and it was “carts path only” after heavy storms night prior to playing! If you didn’t drive REALLY SLOWLY on the cart paths you would’ve needed seat belts to avoid being thrown from the cart—they were that bad!
Pro shop personnel curt, unfriendly and taking phone calls first befOre waiting on customers. Nowhere near worth the money to play!! A waste of time & money!
