The Dogwood/Palmetto Course at Callawassie Island Club combines two of the three nine-hole golf courses that comprise Tom Fazio's 27-hole masterpiece. Dogwood, the newest nine, opened in 1992.

Dogwood starts out through the interior of the Island, with water hazards on three of the first five holes. The most difficult hole is the fourth, which is a long par-4, bordered by a hazard along its last 200 yards. The sixth is short par-5 that takes you out to the salt marsh and a well-bunkered island green.

The salt marsh forms a lateral hazard on the last three holes of Dogwood and provides outstanding views of the marsh, Spring Island and the lower portion of Callawassie Island.

The Palmetto nine winds through the interior of the Island, but golfers still face water hazards on six of the nine holes.
