Play Monticello

With one of the “18 Most Spectacular” holes in the Carolinas (Hole 5)

The gorgeous 18-hole course is nestled between a national forest and South Carolina’s “freshwater coast” at Lake Thurmond. It contains 7,032 yards of perfectly manicured MiniVerde greens, Zoysia collars, rock formations, and wide Bermuda fairways/rough.

Spectacular water views come into view at 9 holes, including a dramatic lakefront peninsula at the 5th hole, one of the “18 Most Spectacular” holes in the Carolinas. This nationally renowned course opened in the spring of 2000, and Golf Digest rated it one of the Top Ten New Courses in 2001.

The Monticello course is a modern links course with a rolling topography and water hazards along a forested shoreline. The course stretches 7,032 yards from the championship tees and features MiniVerde Bermuda greens, Zoysia collars, and Bermuda fairways/rough. Water comes into play on nine of the 18 holes, which includes a dramatic lakefront peninsula midway through the front nine. Monticello is home to the SwingThought Pro Golf Tour’s premier event, the Savannah Lakes Village Classic.
