Golf’s Little Big Town – Santee, SC Has Some Ideas For Your Long Weekends!

Santee Cooper Country Club 18th green

Bring out the patriot in you!  For four days around the Labor Day Weekend, or as they like to think of it – Patriot Golf Day Weekend, you can wave the flag and support all that have given so much in making America what it is today!

It’s a Patriot weekend.  All profits from the three golf days go to the Folds of Honor Foundation.  All golf days are individual events so you can play on day or play in all three.  Event golf days are Friday August 30, Saturday the 31st, and Monday September 2nd.

Cost to play is only $37.00 per person, format is Captain’s Choice.  For Military personnel, anyone serving or has served and spouses only $25.00 and includes: golf, range balls, prizes, drinks on course, and cookout after play.  One of the prizes is for the Best Patriotically Dressed Team… that might require a visit to

Just in case you are not aware of what the Folds of Honor is all about: Since 2007, the Folds of Honor has carried forth this singular, noble mission. To provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members.

Their motto says it best; Honor Their Sacrifice.  Educate Their Legacy.

Of course we welcome you to hang out for the weekend, be close to all the action and festivities. Lake Marion Golf Club has condos and villas lining the fairways.  In fact there are many options of accommodations in the Town of Santee.  Hotels, motels and the Chapel Creek Plantation Villas line the first fairway of even more golf at the only Golf Digest 4 Star rated course in Santee, Santee National Golf Club.

Tentatively at this point, but for the week immediately following Thanksgiving, Wednesday December 4th through Friday the 6th is the 3rd Annual Winter 4 Ball Classic with so much included with your registration that you would swear that a Golfing Santa had something to do with this!

56 players participated in year one, 96 in year two and no doubt more in year three. The Santa Sack of registration gifts makes it one that you won’t soon forget.

In 2018 the registration gifts were: A Tour Edge Fairway Wood or Rescue Club (or $180.00 Tour Edge value), a pair of FootJoy or Sketchers shoes, FootJoy glove, 1 dozen Srixon balls, plus a Winter Classic shirt and hat!  Damn that is a lot of stuff!!!

Plus…The Stay & Play portion of the package Includes:  2 nights’ accommodations, 3 rounds of golf, (2 competitive, 1 practice), breakfast, lunches, dinners and cocktails.

Last year’s (2018) cost to participate was all in – only $539.00. For 2019, details and registration goodies are still being worked on – final pricing will be available soon.  A number of last year’s participants have already pre-registered so if this might be of interest to you and your friends please let the team at Lake Marion know.

You can enter as a foursome, twosomes will be paired up.  Divisions include: men’s, women’s, and couples.  Team handicapping takes place after day one.

Golf’s Little Big Town has the perfect trifecta for a quick getaway.  Three courses within a 3-wood of each other, Santee National, Santee Cooper Country Club and Lake Marion.  Thinking of a longer stay? It’s no problem to add to your variety of courses as there are another four within 25 minutes of Town and up to 14 within 45 minutes.

There is a reason why a sleepy little town of just over 800 people can grow to over 20,000 people over any golf weekend!  If you have not yet been, you don’t know what you are missing.  For a small town you have a fine selection of cuisine, steak and some of the best fried chicken in the south plus a great wine selection at Clark’s Inn.  The pork chop at Wilbur’s will be one you won’t soon forget also with a wine list 2nd to none.  The Super Bowl of margaritas awaits you – the Super Jumbo if you dare – within the sporty atmosphere of Armando’s Mexican Restaurant.  Captains’ Quarters will satisfy all your seafood desires and if Asian flare is top of mind Thai House has everything from Thai to Chinese and even sushi!
