After watching Hideki Matsuyama make history by taking home the green jacket at the Masters a few short weeks ago, you may be yearning for lush fairways and perfectly manicured greens. A round of golf at Augusta National Golf Club is one the most coveted and hard to secure reservations in all of sports so we’ve rounded up the top five golf courses across the Southeast where you may be able to secure a tee time.
Sea Island (St. Simons Island, GA)- Experience Georgia’s most favored escape on beautiful St. Simons Island. Their seaside course is set right along the ocean for a naturally gorgeous and simultaneously challenging course thanks to the ocean breeze and dune bunkers.
PGA National Golf Club (Palm Beach Gardens, FL) – Head further down the East Coast into sunny Florida and take on the notoriously tough ‘Bear Trap’, a difficult three holes designed by Jack Nicklaus on the Champion Course, home of the PGA Tour’s Honda Classic.
Kiawah Resort (Charleston, SC) – Just south of historic downtown Charleston, South Carolina sits one of the hardest PGA Championship courses on record. The Ocean Course at the Kiaweh Resort is best in its class and boasts the most seaside holes in the entire Northern Hemisphere.
Pinehurst No 2 (Pinehurst, NC) – No list of Southeast golf courses is complete without Pete Ross’ most celebrated work and anchor site of the U.S. Open, Pinehurst No 2. The prestigious course has served as the site of more single golf championships than any course in America.
TPC Sawgrass (Ponte Vedra Beach, FL) – While the Stadium Course is well documented and highly televised every spring, we highly recommend experiencing the club’s sister course designed by world renowned architect Pete Dye, the Valley Course which has water on every hole. Plus, the new drive up to the club house is simply stunning.
