Operational adjustments still in effect - posted in previous Golf Operations Updates
  • Crooked Oaks is the only course open for play.  Tee times now run from 7am - 6pm through the rest of the summer. 
  • Due to high demand for tee times, singles and twosomes will be paired up to allow more members the opportunity to get a tee time.  We are actively maintaining a waiting list so please ask to get on it if you can't get a tee time initially.  The tee sheet changes a lot from day to day especially a day or two out.
  • We are filling the tee sheet every day so book your tee times early and cancel early when not needed - someone else will fill it.
    • Full Members - 30 days in advance
    • Social Members - 14 days in advance
    • Community Members - 7 days in advance
    • Rental Guests - 3 days in advance
  • Golf Shop is now open every day from 6:30am - 6pm.  Capacity is restricted to a maximum of 4 members/guests with a designated entrance through the door off the veranda and exit through the door leading to the hallway.  Proper distancing of 6' should be practiced at all times inside and out.
  • Tee times may be made via phone (843) 768 - 2529 and online in the members' section of For same day play, please call the golf shop.
  • Check-in for member play and practice will remain outside on the range for the immediate future. Range balls are $6 per bag and will be charged to member accounts (exception for Full Resident members)
  • If a player's ball comes to rest in a divot, as a temporary local rule, it may be moved to the nearest relief, no nearer the hole. Similarly, if a ball comes to rest in a footprint in a bunker, the ball may be moved to the nearest unaffected area in a bunker no nearer the hole.  These local rules will apply as long as Covid restrictions are in place for divot mix and rakes.
  • Towels, coolers, scorecards and pencils have been removed from the carts.  Scorecards and pencils may be individually picked up from the Starters table near the range. We recommend that you bring your own towel and water bottle.
  • Golfers must maintain 6' of separation at all times.  Maintain separation on the tee, putt your ball out and then stand back for the next player to finish the hole.
  • Please dispose of all trash and return the golf cart to the staff to be cleaned and sanitized for the next member when finished playing.
  • After play, no lingering.  Gathering after the round in groups of larger than 3 has been prohibited by SC Executive Order.  Tip your hat, gather your belongings and please leave the Club property immediately upon completion of play.
  • Mixed Couples, MGA and SILGA are using online scoring. Printed scorecards for all group play are not be available at this time
  • Members may use their own push carts as a temporary adjustment to normal operating procedures - normal rates still apply.
