Monticello Club - Play The Lake

Monticello Club

The Monticello Golf Course is a 7,032-yard course along South Carolina’s Freshwater Coast, set within a 4,000-acre lakefront sporting community and nestled in 63,368 acres of national forest land and state parks along 71,100-acre Lake Thurmond.

The Monticello course is a modern links course with a rolling topography and water hazards along a forested shoreline. The course stretches 7,032 yards from the championship tees and features MiniVerde Bermuda greens, Zoysia collars, and Bermuda fairways/rough. Water comes into play on nine of the 18 holes, which includes a dramatic lakefront peninsula midway through the front nine. Monticello is home to the SwingThought Pro Golf Tour’s premier event, the Savannah Lakes Village Classic.
