Santee, S.C., is a small village of just about 900 residents, but thanks to Lake Marion -- one of America's 50 largest lakes -- Santee is easy to find. And with affordable courses such as Lake Marion Golf Course and Santee National Golf Club, the village is a must-find. Santee's courses, all within a few minutes of each other, are good but won't make any Top 100 rankings, and that's just how its clientele likes it.

Located right in the heart of South Carolina off the main Interstate 95 artery, Santee's golf courses receive a lot of traffic, even if they don't get as much publicity as nearby hotspots Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head and Kiawah Island. You won't find the names of celebrity architects or eye-popping slope ratings splattered on scorecards, but you will see plenty of happy golfers on the area's rolling, sandy-soiled fairways.

The River Golf Club is located just a few miles from Augusta National, and it's a favorite spot for patrons who attend the Masters and want to bring along their golf clubs. But you better book way in advance during Masters week.

Forest Hills Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. has managed to retain its place in the game's history and still remain relevant today.

You'll find something different on every visit, Stan Awtrey writes.
