Charleston Stay and Plays

The Pink House, the oldest stone building in Charleston, was built of Bermudian limestone at 17 Chalmers Street, at some time between 1694 and 1712.

This is the perfect time of year to enjoy the beauty of Charleston, South Carolina. This historical and romantic city has so much to offer in fine dining, fishing, historical tours, world wide festivals, and comfortable accommodations. Over 150 years ago, Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor was the sight of the beginning of the War Between the States. What better way to include golf with a visit, or a visit with golf and take advantage of some incredible savings on Stay & Play packages. The Charleston area has always been a premier destination for families, friends or couples to enjoy a vacation. Just last fall, I spent a fabulous 3 day golf visit in Charleston between golfing in Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head plays, that are both just a few hours away.

Charleston was the site of America’s first golf club, and this great heritage continues today with convenient access to 19 championship courses created by legendary architects and players of our time. Signature layouts by Robert Trent Jones Sr., Rees Jones, Tom Fazio, Pete Dye and the greats Palmer, Player and Nicklaus are all nearby.
