With two championship courses that have been ranked in GOLF Magazine's "Top 100 Greatest Courses in the U.S." list, the golfing experience at Colleton River is unparalleled. Not only are the courses challenging, playable and ever-changing, but with the award-winning signature 18-hole golf courses by world-renowned golf course designers Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye, and even a Par 3 course designed by Bruce Borland, tee availability is also guaranteed to our members at almost any time of year.
Measuring over 7,100 yards from the tips, the Jack Nicklaus Course at Colleton River is classic Lowcountry golf at its absolute finest. This is the rare course that rewards players of all levels who have a genuine appreciation for the purity of the game, striking an exceptional balance between challenge and playability. It's a gentlemanly design steeped in southern charm, and Nicklaus has used his prestigious talents to create 18 visually spectacular golf holes with traditional approaches, while placing a premium on strategy and shot-making.
A brilliant example of the work of golf legend Jack Nicklaus, the Nicklaus course is as visually stunning as it is challenging. Recognized as "Best New Private Course in America" in 1993 by Golf Digest, a "Top 100" course by Golf Magazine, "Top 100 Residential Golf Courses" by GolfWeek and as the "Best New Remodel" by Golf Digest, it delivers a formidable yet rewarding golf experience, and offers one of the finest and most scenic set of finishing holes in golf.
Even the best PGA golfers in the world agree. "Colleton River reminds me of Cypress Point. It has as many elements as any golf course on the East Coast," says Nicklaus. His fellow legendary tour pro and golf course architect Greg Norman has gone even further, saying that Colleton River is Nicklaus' best effort in the Golden Bear's entire design portfolio.
