Old Tabby Links
Spring Island, South Carolina | 18 holes | Links | Par: 72 | 7135 yards
Old Tabby Links golf course, which opened in 1993, epitomizes Spring Island's nature-first philosophy.
The front nine of this Arnold Palmer golf course weaves through a 150-year-old live oak forest. The back nine presents a totally different look. The first six holes meander through what used to be quail-hunting pastures. The last three border the marsh and present magnificent views of the Chechessee River, with the Broad River, Parris Island and Port Royal off on the horizon.
Thoughtfully shaped to respect its natural surroundings, the golf course is distinguished not only by its playability but also by for its respect to its natural surroundings. Neither a home nor another fairway can be seen from many of the holes. Old Tabby Links measures 7,135 yards from the longest tees for a par of 72.
The 17th hole, a beautiful and treacherous waterside par-3, is the course's signature hole. It has been ranked as one of the top 18 holes Palmer has created.
