Play plantation-style golf at Edisto Island

The Plantation Course on Edisto Island is one of the most aptly named courses on the South Carolina coast. Carved out amidst the beautifully natural scenery of Edisto, the Plantation Course immediately makes golfers feel at home.

The Tom Jackson-designed course sits in the middle of the island, surrounded by the protected lands, wildlife and beaches that have made Edisto a popular vacation spot for families who return year after year. In fact, Edisto’s tight-knit community, combined with the lack of commercialism, make the entire experience even more special.

With water coming into play on 12 holes and fairways that demand accuracy, the course is as challenging as any other course you’ll find on the coast. But it also is enjoyable for players at all levels. In fact, Jackson did a wonderful job of creating a course that vacationers would want to play each year for a week or two at a time.

Speaking of vacations, planning a golf vacation to Edisto is even more convenient with the recently built Plantation Villas. These 4 bedroom/4 bath villas are next to the golf course, as well as two restaurants and the beach, making it ideal for those who want to simply park the car and enjoy their vacation.
