Interview With Golf Packages of SC
The Ultimate 10 Day SC Golf Vacation
By Brian Weis
Brian Weis, Publisher of GolfTrips.com, interviewed Ricky Saucier from Golf Packages of South Carolina, LLC about planning the ultimate day golf trip to South Carolina.
Brian Weis: If myself and 7 buddies wanted to do the ultimate 10 day golf trip to SC. What region(s) and courses must be on my itinerary?
Ricky Saucier: South Carolina has some of the best golf in the country. The ultimate 10 day trip would have to be along the SC coast; starting in Hilton Head, Harbour Town Golf Links and Palmetto Dunes Jones Course. Head north to Kiawah Island Golf Resort and The Ocean Course and Turtle Point at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Wake up and travel north of Charleston to the Isle of Palms and Wild Dunes Links Course. Finish up the Charleston area at RiverTowne Country Club. Move on To Myrtle Beach playing True Blue and Caledonia in Pawleys Island. Finish your trip with GrandeDunes Resort Course and Glen Dornoch Waterway Links.
Brian Weis: We typically golf 36 holes a day but may have a day or two where we golf 18 and do some non golf activities. What are the "must dos" for those areas?
Ricky Saucier: Take a day off to sport fish or deep sea fishing; depending on the time of year at any of these destinations along the coast. Another idea is to take a day to visit historic downtown Charleston.
Brian Weis: Does South Carolina have some good inland golf?
Ricky Saucier: Of course, you could do another 10 day trip. My hidden gem 10 day tour would start in the Olde English District (south of Charlotte NC) Start with Springfield Golf Club then head south towards Columbia playing Edgewater Golf Club and Cobblestone Park. Play The Golf Club of SC at Crickentree before heading west toward Aiken. Play the historic Aiken Golf Club founded in 1912; then head over to North Augusta, SC to The River Golf Club located along the SavannahRriver. Head next to the northwest corner of the state or upstate and play Monticello in McCormick and The Patriot, a Davis Love III design in Greenwood. Finish up the trip in the upstate playing The Walker Course at Clemson University and Woodfin Ridge Golf Club.
Brian Weis: If someone wanted to book a trip, briefly what services do you provide and how can they contact you?

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
