Chechessee Creek Club- hole 13Chechessee Creek Club- hole 13 

Chechessee Creek Club is located on Callawassie Island in South Carolina

The course was designed by Coore & Crenshaw and opened for play in 2000

 In 2016 we had the opportunity to stay and play at Chechessee and jumped at the opportunity

It is a private club and has accommodation and dining facilities for members on site

It was a lovely place to stay- we were very well looked after by the team at Chechessee

The course is interesting.

It is built on a heavily treed tract of land adjacent to the lowlands and marsh and has very little elevation change through the property

But Mr Coore and Mr Crenshaw have done a good  job of it, producing a very nice course

With flat fairways framed by trees and raised greens there is a certain sameness to holes, but the more you play it the more you realise how good the green complexes and bunkering are

It's a course that will grow on you with repeat plays


Notable holes include:


- the short par 4 third hole with bunkers both sides for the tee shot and a small bunkerless green

- the par 3 seventh hole, a picturesque, heavily bunkered hole. Make sure you are up!

- the short par 4 twelfth hole requires a decent carry over the marshland off the tee- it's a pretty hole and requires an accurate approach

- the par 3 thirteenth hole is the shortest of the one shotters and another polaroid moment (see pic top of page)

- the short par 4 seventeenth hole with marshy hazard on the inside of the dogleg

 Chechessee Creek Club is a lovely place to stay & play, so If a member invites you- jump at the opportunity

And the proshop is good too- I actually found several items that would fit me- and bought up big!
