The Golf Course at Long Cove Club
The golf club is member owned with membership only through property ownership. 18-hole private Golf Course, designed by the renowned Pete Dye. It has been named one of the “Top 100” Golf Courses in America for overall design and excellence by Golf Digest. It is often ranked Number #1 in South Carolina.
The national and international rankings for this classic facility are evident the first time that you play the course. It is the site of a USGA Mid-Amateur Championship and the caliber of course design by Pete Dye is evident. While lying along wetlands and marsh, it often projects a flavor of Scotland. Water is a constant reality check and shot placement is essential. Long Cove is clearly a shot maker’s course and demands long and strategic tee shots on the par 4`s and par 5`s. The physical beauty of the course and its diverse characteristics ranging from marsh to moss-draped oaks… to stands of pine and effective placement of love grass and long rough, combine to make it one of the world’s finest.
