Six foursomes have already confirmed and the field will be limited to 100 players for this year.

Golf will take place on the three in-town golf courses.

Santee National Golf Club features 40 crystal white sand bunkers and five water hazards. Rated 4 stars by Golf Digest’s Places to Play, golfers will definitely enjoy their practice round on this course.

Santee Cooper Country Club, designed by George Cobb, is perhaps the most scenic course in the area. Dogleg holes, strategic bunkering and views of Lake Marion’s sparkling waters will make this a round you won’t forget.

Lake Marion Golf Course, sister course to Santee Cooper CC, will challenge golfers with tree lined fairways, bordering lakes and 47 bunkers.

Clarks, the oldest business in Town, was singled out by Southern Living as one of the best places for a pit stop on I-95.  A martini in the English Style pub is generally my first stop at Clark’s then on to the restaurant where the decision is always the Rib Eye steak or Fried Chicken which is as good as you will find anywhere in the south.

Santee Cooper has 10 new Townhomes available along the fairways of Lake Marion.  In addition, a new Hospitality Clubhouse with pool is complete.

Besides, the golf, there is plenty to do in Santee. In a Southern Living Magazine article “The South’s Best Swimming Holes and Waterfalls” referred to Lake Marion as an “inland sea.”  The State Park is an ideal place to go for a swim, dive, water ski or lake tour.

Happy Hour is alive and well in Santee – one of the best bargains ever is at Key Largo where you can get margaritas for $1.99 and beers for just a BUCK!  The food is pretty good here too!

Pedro’s has certainly caught the attention of visitors to the area with its 2 for 1 happy hour. Giant margaritas, great menu selections, yummy nacho chips and many salsas. Captains Quarters is great for your seafood cravings – grouper is a favorite here! Wilbur’s Cocktails and Supper Club has a great selection of fine eats including steaks and some of the biggest pork chops you will find with a great wine selection!  For lunch or dinner The Thai House offers up a different flair – including sushi.

So be sure to o book your foursome for the 2nd Annual Santee Winter Classic!
