The Courses at The Reserve Club

Our club features an award winning course, considered among the top in the country.


The Reserve Course

The essence of The Reserve Club is the Reserve course, a superb Nicklaus Design. Upon its completion, the course was named by Golf Digest as one of the “Top Ten Best New Private Courses in America in 2003.” It has continually been named one of South Carolina’s top courses ever since. The course boasts a beautiful 7,352-yard layout featuring rolling terrain with plush fairways and picturesque vistas. Golfers enjoy a relaxed pace of play around this breathtaking layout – a scene that only a true architect could create. From the first tee shot to the last putt, golfers are mesmerized by the beauty of the layout and thrilled with the playability of the course. No matter your skill level The Reserve Course is a joy to play and keeps you wanting to come back more and more.

Tip of the Month

When putting, your ball position should depend on which eye your dominate with. Generally, left eye dominate players want to move the ball further forward in the stance or underneath their left eye. Right eye dominate players want to keep the ball in the middle of the stance or underneath their right eye. Making this slight adjustment to ball position when you're putting will help you be a more consistent putter!
