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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
