The season is flying by, it's almost June, and time for the 71st Annual WSCGA State Amateur Championship. This years championship will be played at Dataw Island Club on the Cotton Dike Course. The event will be
June 11 - 13.
As one of South Carolina’s premier golf communities, Dataw Island is home to two 18-hole golf courses: Tom Fazio’s Cotton Dike course and Arthur Hills’ Morgan River course. Both recently-renovated, and both designed to ensure a pleasurable round for golfers of all abilities. Golfers enjoy beautiful natural surroundings as they wind their way through the island and amongst tidal marshland, live oaks dating back hundreds of years and Civil War era ruins – starting and ending at our Southern-style Clubhouse
For the Cotton Dike course, Tom Fazio's design choices were influenced by a series of dikes that were created to generate more planting ground for 18th century plantation cotton fields. Jenkins Creek flows by nearly half of the 18 holes, nestled between emerald fields and fairways.
“From a playability standpoint,” Fazio says, “the seventh hole offers numerous options as a three-shot hole or as a reachable par-five for long hitters, and if the golfer avoids the forest on the right and the lagoons on the left, a birdie is a distinct possibility.”
The Cotton Dike course was completely renovated in 2011, and plays better than ever, reclaiming its rightful place as one of the Lowcounty’s finest courses.
