Hi Folks:   One of my FAVORITE places for a golf buddy trip is Santee National Golf Club in Santee, S. C.... WHY? I think it is one of the best set up places for golfers to stay, play and carouse. The Santee area has a wide variety of golf courses, 17 in all, and hotels to fit your style and budget. Known as the “Value Destination of the East Coast”, Santee offers great golf for the money.  Situated along Interstate 95, Santee is also probably the easiest to find golf destination. There are numerous places to stay but you would absolutely want to go with the golfers condos at Santee National Golf Club. They have 3 buildings along the 1st tee with 4 condos each and they are pretty much out of earshot of everyone. So, if you are like the golfers I traveled with, the more they drank, the louder they got, and here, you won't disturb anyone. We always seemed to run into a group or Canadians and they were FUN . They even brought their own bagpipers. That was interesting and entertaining.  Drunk Canadians WITH bagpipes, what a HOOT.  The condos are 2 bedroom, 2 bath and a full kitchen. The bedrooms have 2 double beds for 4 golfers per unit, so this is the way to go. Don't know about you, but I don't want to sleep in the same bed with another golfer, even after a few drinks. The 17 courses located int the Santee area offer more than enough choices for a week long trip. My favorites are Santee Narional, Lake Marion GC, Wyboo and Santee Cooper. They are all championship golf courses with tees for players of all skill levels.

Dining is limited compared to larger places like Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head but there are enough places for variety in a week long trip and you still have your full kitchens and grills outside of your condo. Its always nice to have a juicy steak after playing 36. The ONE place that is a MUST is the Lone Star Bar-B-Que and Mercantile which is almost with in sight of the condos and is on Santee State Park road. This place is one of the most unique dining spots in the area and the locals and golfers in the know love it. Don't be put off by the 1920 look of the place, its worth checking out. It is only open Thursday to Sunday and I try to eat there at least twice when I am there. The price is right and I believe it is some of the best home cooking the South has to offer. They even had free live entertainment on a Saturday that we visited.

So if you are looking for a destination that is less hectic and offers everything any group would need for a successful trip at a reasonable price, you might want to put this area on your list of places to go.

I live a an hour and half away from the Santee courses and we head over there ever once in a while to play a round. The courses are in good shape for the price (which is really cheap for this area) and they're fun to play. A friend of mine even invited me a few years back to play 8 rounds in 4 days with a group from Ohio, that included his Dad, and we had a blast. Definitely a decent golf destination if you are looking to keep the price down.
