So, you know someone who has decided to have a South Carolina beach wedding. No worries. You needed a vacation and an excuse to get away from it all. Why not South Carolina? After all, there are mountains, beaches and a history dating back to the original 13 colonies to immerse yourself in.
Does the problem lie in the fact that your plans are also supposed to include some quality time on the links, and your game is a little rusty? Again, no worries.
Lucky for you South Carolina has some of the best golf courses in North America! Take for instance the Ocean Point Course – one of South Carolina’s oceanfront golf courses.
Having opened in 1964 with its original design created by George Cobb (who also consulted on the Augusta National), Ocean Point has earned accolades and awards over the years.
The course is situated so that golfers have a built in excuse if their game goes awry – majestic views on no fewer than SIX holes that distract you from your aim!
Unfortunately, good ol’ George knew the wind would be a factor to one’s game. So he designed the course so that golfers could run the ball up on to most of the greens thus removing ‘wind’ from your excuse bag. (Every good golf bag comes with one, but you know that!)
So pack everything but your worries. You’ll enjoy a memorable time with friends and family while getting some time to play some great golf courses. Whether your game is a hit or a miss, you’ll need to return to either revisit a course that treated you well or to try to beat it yet again. Happy hitting.
