6/29/2007 Southeast Getaway: The Plantation Course at Edisto
The Plantation Course at Edisto is a masterpiece that will challenge golfers of all levels with its breathtaking beauty, exceptional service, superior course conditions and three sets of tees. The architect Tom Jackson artfully sculpted the course from a tropical environment. The layout is tastefully hallmarked by towering native live oaks that frame holes number five and eighteen and hole eleven is framed by beautiful magnolia trees. Lush, but narrow fairways are framed by rolling mounds, native marsh and wetlands, and more than 50 bunkers. The course meanders through coastal marshland and natural lagoons with marsh views. A truly unique experience, the Plantation Course at Edisto is, from a player's standpoint, refreshingly new and great fun to play for all skill levels.
Well-placed tee shots and approaches are requisite to good scoring. Those looking for a real challenge can move to the back tees and find a very fair, but a stern test of golf. The importance of tee shot placement cannot be overlooked. With the new Supreme Paspalum Sea Isle Grass from tee to green, you will find a beautiful course maintained in a player friendly condition at all times. The 18 championship holes exist in harmony with flowing salt water, moss-draped live oaks, lofty pines, and palmetto trees. The scenic lay of the land is not all you will capture. The sensation of catching a glimpse of a graceful deer, or alligator will take your breath away. The mood at Edisto is so tranquil and the atmosphere so serene that you will marvel at the conversation between the inhabitant birds and the echoing breeze as it travels from the ocean. Experiencing Edisto is more than just playing a round of golf, it is revitalization to the senses. Attention to detail is noticeable from tee to green.
