THE ALL-WALKING, LINKS STYLE GOLF COURSE
The golf course at Secession Golf Club was designed by Australian, and former PGA TOUR player, Bruce Devlin, the well-respected architect of over 140 courses worldwide and winner of 45 events around the world, including five National Open Championships. Fourteen holes are routed along the scenic tidal marshes of the Lowcountry, providing both a challenge and exceptional natural beauty. The open, exposed nature of the course guarantees a different golf experience almost every round because of the shifting winds and tides. This, coupled with a dedication to the absolute finest course conditions, assures exceptional golf.
From the moment you arrive at Secession you know that a unique golf experience awaits you. Reminiscent of golf in the British Isles, the course’s open, wind-swept beauty offers “Scottish style” bunkering, spectacular marsh views in every direction, a very easy walk and, as one would expect, superb course conditioning.
The first time I played Secession it was a real treat. Each following round showed me just what a special course it is. The greens are as good as I have ever seen, the atmosphere, the membership and the fellowship combine to make Secession a quality experience. We will all hear more and more about Secession in the years ahead.Vinnie Giles, Secession Founder/Member, former U.S. and British Amateur Champion and 1993 Walker Cup Captain
Secession is a very special place where Golf and the Tradition of Golf are understood and appreciated. A pristine golf course surrounded by marshland, a committed and knowledgeable staff and a uniquely compatible membership from all parts of the country interested in one thing – a great Golf experience. Secession is the whole package.Jon Verity, Secession Member and six-time Senior Club Champion
The Club takes its name from the original Articles of Secession - for South Carolina to withdraw from the Union – that were drafted in Beaufort in 1860 shortly before the first hostilities in what became the Civil War. It’s a doff of the cap to the area’s landmark place in the national story, an acknowledgement of the event and all parties, not an invitation to argument.Trent Bouts, Carolinas Green (Sep/Oct 2007 issue)
