Island West Golf Club in Bluffton, S.C. is one of the Lowcountry's Best
While his good pal John Daly missed the cut at this week’s Hawaiian Open, Fuzzy Zoeller is also saying “Aloha.” Fuzz is banking on banking some serious coin at the Champions Tour Skins Game, where he has emerged victorious in both 2008 and 2009.
Zoeller only has the same amount of official victories as a Champions Tour Player (two) as he did in Majors on the regular Tour (’79 Masters and ‘84 U.S. Open). But while his victory total is sparse, his resume and reputation as a course designer continues to grow. Case in point: Of the nearly 20 golf courses designed by Fuzzy Zoeller, one of the most enjoyable is the underrated, affordable, yet very pleasant Island West Golf Club in Bluffton, South Carolina, on the outskirts of Hilton Head Island.
A long-time favorite of residents and Lowcountry vacationers, Island West features beautiful rolling fairways, elevated tees, carefully preserved natural marsh areas, and large live oaks. Over the last decade-and-a-half, Bluffton has developed into a full-service golf destination in its own right. So much so that an avid player can enjoy a “Hilton Head” golf vacation for nearly a week, and never peg a ball on the island itself, so prevalent are the quality choices available on the mainland. Island West is one of the major reasons why.
