Between Jacksonville, FL, and Charleston, SC, the Intracoastal Waterway is a grand highway that leads you to superb cultural attractions, fascinating historic sites, and wetlands and islands teeming with wildlife. During this seven day voyage, golfers will have opportunities to play at four renowned clubs. The ocean views from the Sea Island Golf Club remind many of the links at St. Andrews in Scotland. At the Links at Stono Ferry in Charleston, golfers enjoy the breeze of the Intracoastal Waterway as they test themselves on the heart-pounding back nine holes. The Club at Savannah Harbor boasts a four-star rating from Golf Digest and is ranked among the Top 100 of America's Golf Courses by Conde Nast Traveler. And outside Beaufort, South Carolina, the Secession Golf Club’s mandatory walking policy brings the game back to an earlier era.
