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.

Limited access: this private course is generally playable only by members and their invited guests.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
