Among the best private golf courses in South Carolina, the Rees Jones-designed masterpiece at The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek enjoys two unique distinctions: Not only was it named “America’s Best New Private Course” by Golf Digest in 2002, it’s also the only Silver Audubon Signature Sanctuary course in the entire Palmetto State.
Given those accolades, you might think that it’s tough to get a tee time. In fact, it’s impossible because there are no tee times at The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek. With just 200 members, most of whom don’t live there full-time, tee times are unnecessary. Members and their guests play when it suits them and often have the entire golf course to themselves.
But that’s only half of the story at Briar’s Creek. Certainly, it's one of South Carolina’s finest private golf courses, but it's also one of the Lowcountry’s most beautifully secluded residential communities.
Located on Johns Island, just 20 minutes from the historic City of Charleston, the Briar’s Creek residential community overlooks the teeming wetlands that adjoin the Kiawah River. With just 83 estate-sized lots and fewer than a dozen luxurious residences built so far, Briar’s Creek is like a tranquil nature preserve with a world-class golf course in the middle. The wildlife is abundant, the moss-draped oaks are grand and the serenity is awe-inspiring. It’s a peaceful setting unlike any other in the Lowcountry precisely because it retains so much of the natural ambiance that drew settlers to coastal South Carolina hundreds of years ago.
That’s the perfection of privacy at The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek.
