Palmetto Golf Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1892

Palmetto Golf Club is located a short drive from the South Carolina-Georgia border, and the city of Augusta. This historic golf club is home to a course that has benefitted from the design skills of a veritable Who's Who of leading golf course architects. What the 6,713-yard (par-71) predominantly tree-lined course may lack in length it more than makes up for with its small elevated and undulating greens, and clever (some say diabolical) bunkers. A private club, exclusively for the use of members and their invited guests.
