Client Course Description

An integral part of the Briar’s Creek experience is the way golf and the natural environment complement each other. There is no shortage of water, marshes, wetlands and wildlife, along with the occasional bunker, rough, and gently rolling, but quick putting surface.

Precisely designed and skillfully maintained, this Rees Jones masterpiece embraces the rich, Lowcountry landscape and vegetation of Johns Island real estate and the Kiawah River. Six sets of tees offer dramatic shots around, across and along unspoiled marsh and riverside vistas, creating a spirited, scenic challenge for golfers of every level, every time they play.

Designer Notes

In 2020, Rees Jones and co-designer Steve Weisser completely renovated of all greenside and fairway bunkers as part of an overall golf course regrassing project. The work included improvements to selected tee, fairway and green areas.
