Parris Island, SC 29905, United States
Although the course dates to 1947 and a design by Fred Findley and George Cobb, it was heavily renovated in 1999 with a new design by Clyde Johnston. The new layout features many live oak trees covered in Spanish moss. Upon opening in 2000, some critics judged this one of the ten best military courses in the world.
Tee-times are available up to seven days in advance for authorized patrons including active-duty and retired military, DoD, and NAFI. You won't be seeing any actual USMC recruits playing the course, though. :)
Civilians who can legally access MCRD Parris Island can reserve tee-times up to three days in advance via telephone (843-228-2240). Civilians *must* have a tee-time in order to come aboard Parris Island.

This was the first course I ever played on and having come back to play it after learning the game. I must say this course is a great course, military or not. I thought for this to be the off season the course was still kept in great shape and the course layout made for a fun day. It had challenging hole locations and tee boxes, but for the most part if you were willing to "go for it" you will be rewarded with good shots. The greens were in great shape running about an 12. The club pro said during the Services Championships they can get up to a 14/15 which is crazy. Definitely enjoyed the course and recommend for those looking for a challenge.

Stay out of the 1st cut rough, you'll never find your ball.
