Parris Island Golf Course, also known as the Legends Golf Course is a military 18-hole golf course located at MCRD Parris Island, South Carolina.
This course first opened for play in 1951 and was designed by George W. Cobb and Fred Findlay. In 1999, the course had a $4.5 million renovation supervised and designed by golf course architect Clyde Johnston.
This is a considered one of the better military course. There is a pottery kiln dating back to the 1500's that is a historic attraction on the course. The course has beautiful marsh views and the fairways are lined with spectacular live oaks. The island is considered to be the "Hollywood" of South Carolina because both "Forrest Gump" and "The Prince of Tides" movies were filmed here.
The layout offers five sets of tees, measuring up to 6,900 yards from the tips, with holes named for legendary U.S. Marines who’ve made remarkable contributions or excelled in service to our country.
Historically, the site reaches back to the sixteenth century with the French occupation of Charlesfort. Later, the Spanish city of Santa Elena was established there and served as the capital of Spanish Florida until English raids in 1587 forced the Spaniards to evacuate to St. Augustine. Santa Elena is home to the oldest known European pottery kiln discovered in the United States. Three of the holes on the original course along with the practice range and the clubhouse are all located within the Santa Elena archaeology site.

Course was just starting to green up, late spring for there. fairways were wet from all the rain. The greens were the best part of the course that day. No bumps but fast and true. If this course was dry and the greens faster it would be a challenge for even the low handicapper

Traveled an hour to get to this top rated miltary course, which is best miltary coutrse I've played. Being retired miltary made cost really afordable, but guest rates are more than fair! Great course, will play again when I'm in the area. Weekday play on a course worthy of chanpionship play without the championship grooming applied.

Located on military base (Parris Island), but public play allowed by calling in advance. Name must be on tee sheet, and pass must be obtained at Main Gate. Completed $5 million renovation 5 years ago, changing a long, flat course to one with rolling fairways and water hazards impacting 14 holes. Well worth the hassle of getting on a military base. Best course for the price in the area.
