You might chalk it up to mere curiosity if you wind up in a bunker at the May River Golf Club. After all, it's not every day that you get to walk through sand from Ohio - especially when you're golfing in the South Carolina Lowcountry. But like everything at this beautiful Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, the sand was chosen for a reason, as its angular grain adheres better to sloped surfaces and holds up to coastal weather. Of course, there's much more than sand on this beautiful par-72 course, which weaves almost 7,200 yards along the banks of the May River. Wide, inviting fairways wind past ancient live oaks and palmetto trees, and golfers of all skill levels experience the game in its purest state, reveling in the sights and sounds of a remarkable natural habitat. A state-of-the-art practice facility, handsome clubhouse, and skilled instructors complete the experience, consistently ranked best among South Carolina courses.
