The sister course to Lake Marion Golf Course, Santee Cooper Country Club...

The sister course to Lake Marion Golf Course, Santee Cooper Country Club opened in 1967 and offers perhaps the most scenic round of golf in the area. Set amid majestic pines and native foliage, this well-conditioned George Cobb layout will test every shot in your bag with its series of beautiful dogleg holes, strategic bunkering and challenging par 3's. You are certain to enjoy the magnificently designed risk-reward par 5's and the course's elevation changes. Santee Cooper Country Club offers the best closing hole in Santee with a panoramic view of Lake Marion's sparkling waters. Fairways: 419 Bermuda; Greens: Miniverde Bermuda; Par: 72.

The Lake Marion Golf Villas are the area's premium on-course accommodations and are available for your next golf vacation stay. Opened in the spring of 2006, these luxurious Golf Villas are located along the fairways of Lake Marion Golf Course and within walking distance of the new lighted driving range. For practically the same price as the area's hotels, you and your golfing friends can stay in these deluxe accommodations. Each Golf Villa features two bedrooms with four full beds, two bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, three televisions with cable TV, washer and dryer, outdoor patio and grilling station. The Hospitality Clubhouse is also available, providing gathering spaces for groups of 16-48. Features include a kitchen area, flat screen TV and an expansive event scoreboard in each room.

Very nice course. Probably the nicest in Santee. Fun layout and fair for the recreational golfer. Played as a single early in the AM. Finished in about 3 hours.

Not sure what the deal was with the course conditions earlier this year but end of June round today the course conditions were excellent. Greens were smooth and I never had a bad lie in the fairway. Lot of dog legs and some water. Had a brand new cart which was nice but no GPS which would have helped. 7:15... More

This was my last day in Santee and the best golf experience of the three courses that I played. I had a 7:29 tee time, and was the first one on the course. No one in front of me and no one pushing behind me. Shot the best round of the week. Great course in excellent shape all around. Thanks... More

Enjoyed the layout. Challenging. Course conditions were not as expected. Fair greens and fairways overgrown with crabgrass. Sandtraps were well maintained.

Terrible Condition. Fairways were dirt. Did not even play our 2nd 18. Got to the point that we had to chip and run onto every green because you could not get an iron underneath the ball to get any lift.

This was an additional day to start a 3 day golf package. Granted, there is a lot of long range maintenance work being done. However, the day-to-day maintenance has been taking a back seat. We played Thursday, 3/17/2016, and the course was in very UN-Maintained shape. The greens had not been mowed, the fairways were rough (Not mowed lately), and... More

Played here the week of the Masters and had the first time of the day. Four of us got around in 3.5 hours and enjoyed the layout. Played from the back tees and it was challenging. The only thing we didn't really enjoy was the way they set their pins. They have pre-cut holes in different areas of the greens... More

The quality of the Santee Golf Courses has not disappointed our group of 4 to 8 players in the years we have come & stayed here. We have usually rated the National & Cooper as the best of the 3, & then Marion, of the Local courses. This year we picked up Wyboo again after a few years off, &... More

Played here for the first time and was really surprised with this course. Great condition with very well maintained greens and bunkers. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Played 27 holes and wished we had time to play the back nine a second time. We will play her multiple times on our next trip.

Four of us on a golf trip played Santee Cooper Country Club. It was a very nice course with sand traps and some water. The only complaint was some greens were slanted and extremely fast. Almost impossible to putt. Other wise challenging and fun.
