During course construction in 1969, mastodon bones and artifacts at least 10,000 years old were found near the third fairway green. But even if you don’t find any bones, Snee Farm golfing is sure to be an event to remember. Its par-72 18-hole course stretches for 6,834 yards around beautiful marshes and hosts the annual four-day invitational Rice Planters Amateur, scheduled for June 20-24, 2022. Of course, if you don’t want to stick with just this course, you can choose from dual and triple club memberships with its sister courses, RiverTowne Country Club and Dunes West Golf Club. Whether you come to play, spectate or enjoy a slice of history, you’ll leave Snee Farm Country Club with an experience to last until your next visit. feature RIVERTOWNE COUNTRY CLUB RiverTowne boasts Charleston County’s only Arnold Palmer signature golf course. This 18-hole championship course features 13 holes along the Wando River and Horlbeck Creek. There are tree-lined fairways, multi-tiered greens with bunkers and water and five sets of tees ranging from 5,100 and 7,200 yards. Work on your game by utilizing all the club’s amenities listed on their website — driving range, practice area, putting green, pro shop and access to PGA teaching professionals. Although it is a semi-private golf club offering a variety of memberships, RiverTowne is also open for public play. Before any of this happens, the course will probably have you sold just on the drive up to the plantation-style clubhouse.
