When asked what the top two courses in South Carolina are, most golfers reference Hilton Head Island’s Harbour Town Golf Links and The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort.
Both courses warrant such recognition. Harbour Town, the home of the RBC Heritage, features one of golf’s most revered finishing holes, and The Ocean Course, with more seaside holes than any other course in the Northern Hemisphere, will host its second PGA Championship in 2021.

ETOWAH, N.C. — There was a time when Etowah Valley Golf & Resort was recognized as one of the top golfing destinations in the country.
Located 10 miles south of Asheville Regional Airport, Etowah Valley has three distinctly different nine-hole courses with the South and West layouts making up the challenging 18-hole championship course, which opened in 1967. The Edmund Ault design includes panoramic views of the southern Blue Ridge Mountains.
