Where2Golf says: 

Charleston National Golf Club: In addition to Rees Jones excellent design, Charleston National contains many majestic marshland views, particularly at the start and finish of this always pleasing and challenging layout. The first three holes get the round off to an excellent and very natural start, with large areas of marsh opening up from the par-4 first hole, and needing to be crossed at the par-3 2nd. You'll see plenty more of this superb Lowcountry wetland environment along the way, flanking or cutting through several fairways and protecting a good number of greens. From the par-4 13th right through to the closing par-3 18th (which requires another tee-to-green carry over the marsh) you will be golfing in virtually uninterrupted and unspoilt marshland splendour. The short and tight par-4 16th contains the most stunning vista, out across Copahee Sound and away south to Dewees Island and the Isle of Palms. Small earthmounds ripple alongside several of the good-width and flattish fairways, leading you onto large undulating greens, where further earthmounding and high-lipped bunkering join forces with the wetland defences. Although real estate makes its presence felt in the middle section of the course, it is generally set well enough back and doesn't interfere with enjoying this otherwise very natural and impressive golf course.

Did you know?

Shortly after Charleston National opened in 1989 as a private country club facility, Hurricane Hugo tore through the Charleston area, creating havoc and destruction in its path. The result for Charleston National was the loss of several thousand trees. The course was closed for a year for renovation and redesign, re-opening in 1991 as a semi-private golf course that could also be enjoyed by visiting golfers.
