Course Spotlight: Carolina National

As the first signature design in the Carolinas by popular PGA Tour player Fred Couples, Carolina National Golf Club offers 27 holes of player-friendly golf in a spectacular setting nestled along the banks of the scenic Lockwood Folly River.

Carolina National’s three nines each provide a distinctly different feel and style of play:

  • Ibis, featuring forced carries and water on seven of its nine holes;
  • Egret, the more traditional designs of this trio that plays inland amid native pines; and
  • Heron, a more open layout that most brilliantly accentuates the beauty of Carolina National’s Lockwood Folly River surroundings.

Making its debut on the Grand Strand golf scene in 1998, Carolina National celebrates its 20-year anniversary in 2018 and has earned accolades along the way that include a coveted 4.5-star rating from Golf Digest’s “Places to Play,” and a citation by the National Audubon Society as a natural environmental and wildlife preserve.


With immaculate Bermuda grass playing surfaces provided on a year-round basis, Couples drew upon his Masters pedigree (he won the event in 1992) to bring an “Augusta feel” to Carolina National with expertly framed tee shots, strategic bunkering and striking hole visuals that keep its devoted players coming back year after year.
