About Callawassie Island Club
In designing Callawassie Island’s award-winning championship 27-hole golf course, Tom Fazio took advantage of the island’s natural beauty to create visual drama and superb playability. Magnificent live oaks and magnolias, as well as freshwater ponds and the surrounding saltwater marsh, come into play on most holes. Inspiring vistas and abundant wildlife make nature part of the golf experience.
Rated among the top courses in South Carolina, the Callawassie Island Course offers challenges for every skill level. Three distinct courses provide variety and assure availability throughout the year. Each of the nines has its own character and degree of difficulty. Five sets of tees make the courses enjoyable to golfers of all skill levels.
~ Palmetto requires precision, with water hazards on eight of the nine holes.
~ Magnolia challenges all aspects of a player’s game, but offers rewards at the end with two spectacular holes.
~ Dogwood offers the experience of low-country golf at its finest, with the four closing holes along the salt marsh.
“Boxgroove is a great way to provide our membership with the ability to play private clubs while traveling throughout the country,” said Wm.
