Everything You Need to Know About Seabrook Island Golf Courses

Seabrook Island has long been a premier destination for golf in South Carolina. Year-round, area residents and visitors flock to the island to enjoy 36 holes of unique and challenging Seabrook Island championship golf. 

Home to two beautiful and distinctly diverse play options, both courses offer lush greens and fairways, spectacular scenery, and great service - uniquely positioned to take in the nature and beauty around you. 

Only Seabrook Island Club members and club guests may book golf tee times, so the courses are generally uncrowded. If you’re thinking about a move to a golf course community, Seabrook Island should be a contender. With 3.5 miles of beach and a short drive to historic Charleston and all its offerings, one can very much have the best of both worlds amid beach life and city life.
