Country Club of South Carolina honored on Golfweek's Best list

FLORENCE, S.C. -- The Country Club of South Carolina (CCSC) has been recognized among the "Best Courses You Can Play" in South Carolina, according to Golfweek Magazine's recently released annual ranking.

The current Golfweek ranking has CCSC sharing "Best You Can Play" honors with such other elite South Carolina courses as The Ocean Course on Kiawah Island and Harbor Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island.

Golfweek's eclectic ranking panel consists of 675 voters from seven countries. They rely on 10 criteria to rate a golf course, including overall land plan, variety and memorability of golf holes, conditioning and ecology, and the "Walk in the park test", which rates the sense of the course as worthy of spending four hours on it.

Opened in 1969, The Country Club of South Carolina boasts a 7,150-yard championship course designed by Ellis Maples, a protege of Donald Ross and the patriarch of a renowned, Carolinas-based golf course architecture firm. The course is open to outside play seven days a week, with a $45 greens fee that includes golf cart and range balls.

The CCSC course is the centerpiece of an award-winning 900-acre residential community conveniently located just two miles from Interstate 95 and less than 15 minutes from the shopping, cultural and medical centers of downtown Florence.

In addition to championship golf, amenities at Country Club of South Carolina include a 30,000 square foot clubhouse, multiple dining venues, a fitness center, junior Olympic pool, lighted tennis complex and multi-station playground.

The Country Club of South Carolina is managed by Atlanta-based Mosaic Clubs & Resorts, one of the fastest-growing club management companies in the country. www.mosaicclubs.com.
