Spanish Wells Club, originally designed by George Cobb, opened in 1970 and meanders between many of the majestic live oak trees commonly found in the Low country of South Carolina.

The nine-hole golf course was completely renovated in 2005 by local golf course architect Clyde Johnston, with new tees, bunkers, greens, irrigation system and cart paths.

Spanish Wells plays to a par of 36 at 3,053 yards from the back tees. The men's rating is 35.2, with a slope of 124. Men play the white tees for the front nine and blue tees for the back nine.

Spanish Wells was named for the freshwater wells on the property that were frequented by the Spanish fleets in the 13th century when they were exploring the area. The wells still exist today.
