Course Overview

Marrying classic Seth Raynor design with coastal South Carolina topography, Yeamans presents a charming tour of redan, biarritz and road holes woven through marshland and magnificent live oaks. A two decade-long renovation based on Raynor’s original property maps — discovered in the clubhouse attic — has returned this Golden Age masterpiece to its original brilliance. Jim Urbina oversaw much of the work that has seen the greens blown back out to their original size and every consequential bunker restored, even the most frustrating ones, like those found in the 4th fairway. The greenside bunkers aren’t so much deep as the green pads are tall, and they create nervy moments such as at the Cape 10th hole, where missing the green left or right leaves a taxing recovery shot, even though the hole is played over flat land. Though the overall vibe at Yeamans is tranquility, a green pad like the one built up at the Knoll 14th is as pugnacious as it gets. Hard to fathom tackling the course with hickory clubs as they did back in the day! (Photo: LC Lambrecht)
