"Belfair is the ultimate in golf. It’s Shadow Creek quality. I’d stake my reputation on the fact that Belfair is as good as any golf course you will ever see or play." Tom Fazio, course designer.

From native grasses to soaring pines and moss-draped oaks, each of Belfair's courses has its own distinctive style. The courses begin and end at the Clubhouse and traverse the banks of the Colleton River and marshland. Offering five tee boxes, they are guaranteed to challenge golfers of all levels.

The West Course, a parklands design, exemplifies subtle beauty with its gnarled oaks, lush native grass and sparkling lagoons. Even before the grand opening of the West Course in fall 1996, LINKS Magazine called it "what could be the finest set of golf holes in the Lowcountry, if not on the East Coast." This 18-hole, par-72 course with 7,080 total yards from the championship tees consists of challenging par threes to long par fives.

Scalloped, landscaped bunkers frame virtually every hole. Beyond the five sets of tees, other design elements include rolling terrain fairways, hazards which flank rather than front the line of play and manicured elevated undulating greens

The 18-hole East Course, reminiscent of the links courses of Scotland, showcases deep-water views, open windswept fairway and fresh water lakes and lagoons. This par-71 course measures 6,959 yards from the championship tees. The East Course is very walkable. The routing plan and configuration form a close connection between holes.

In 1999, the Fazio design team capitalized on the natural differences of this site by unveiling the contrasting, yet complementing, East Course. The course features distinct vegetation and a number of lakes and ponds to create elevation relief, contouring changes and separation of holes.
