The Nicklaus course at Colleton River Plantation Club in Bluffton, S.C.
BLUFFTON, S.C. -- The Nicklaus course at Colleton River Plantation Club makes an impressive first impression. The regal clubhouse perches on a rise overlooking some of the best holes on the course and the Colleton River.
The golf course itself takes you from woods, to marsh, to riverside, providing an eclectic array of holes along the way. You'll forget none of them. Not the par 5s with their Scottish, links-style motifs, nor the par 4s, each with a unique challenge -- water carries, bunker complexes or offset greens. Most of the par 3s reside amid the marsh, requiring accurate iron shots are varying length.
The course also gives you a most memorable "last" impression, with a five-hole stretch unlike any other, from links-style holes, to a blind drive over bunkers to a par 3 buffeted by winds off the Colleton River.
The Nicklaus course at Colleton River Plantation Club is one you won't ever forget.
