Charleston is recognized as the home of the first American golf course by no less an authority than GOLF Magazine. The South Carolina Golf Club was established in 1786 at Harleston Green in the Historic Charleston Peninsula. Now known as the Country Club of Charleston, it ultimately relocated to its present location on James Island.
