May River - Hole One, 429 yards, Par Four

Named the Best New Course in South Carolina for 2005 by the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel, the Jack Nicklaus-designed May River Golf Club is set amid three-centuries-old live oaks. The golf course runs along the banks of the river that is its namesake.

The par-72 design measures 7,100 yards from the tips, and playing May River Golf Club is a unique experience from tee to green. Even the sand in the bunkers is unique: Nicklaus used sand with an angular grain from Ohio that promotes adhesion.
