Most golfers who visit the South Carolina coast for a golf vacation end up booking golf packages in Myrtle Beach or Hilton Head. More often than not, choosing Charleston, South Carolina for their golf vacation is the last thing on their minds.

Charleston, SC is known throughout the world for its rich history, gracious hospitality, world-class cuisine, first-class accommodations, fabulous festivals, beautiful beaches and so much more. It is not however, well known for golf.

While this is a negative for the golf community in Charleston, this is a plus for anyone who decides to choose a Charleston South Carolina golf vacation. Golf Digest even called this Lowcountry location a "Hidden Gem" in the golf world.

With that in mind, vacationers will find the golf courses less crowded than other South Carolina golf destinations like Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head Island. Besides the smaller crowds on the golf courses, there are many things to keep you occupied when you are not on the links while on your Charleston, South Carolina golf vacation.

But let's focus on the important stuff - the golf. When you visit Charleston, you will not only see one of the oldest cities in the United States but you will also be enjoying golf where some folks believe golf began in the United States.

Pinehurst, North Carolina claims to be the "The Home of American Golf." However, many historians would disagree. With the founding of The South Carolina Golf Club in 1786, many golf historians designate Charleston, South Carolina as the birthplace of golf in the United States.

History aside, with Wild Dunes Resort to the north and Kiawah Island Resort to the south, this coastal city can hold its own against any great golf destination. Legendary golf course designers like Robert Trent Jones, Sr., Tom Fazio, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye have put their stamp on golf courses in Charleston, South Carolina.

Charleston golf courses have played host to many golf tournaments including the Ryder Cup, The Ginn Tribute Hosted by Annika Sorenstam, USGA National Championships and World Cup events. In the future, the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island will host the 2007 Senior PGA Championship and the 2012 PGA Championship.

Now if PGA, LPGA and other professional golf organizations feel like Charleston golf is good enough for their tournaments, it is certainly good enough for our golf game.

Want another reason to book a Charleston, South Carolina golf vacation package? How about year-round weather that lends itself to year-round golf?

While October and November are peak months for the golf industry, you will the golf courses less crowded and the green fees a little lower during December and January. And if you can stand the heat and humidity, summer is a great time to find discount golf packages in Charleston, SC as well.

So the next time you are planning a golf vacation, whether it is with your family, business or golfing buddies, we suggest you take a second look at Charleston, South Carolina.
