RIDGELAND, SOUTH CAROLINA | The truth is it isn’t easy to get to Congaree Golf Club.
If you’re looking, the best way may be to find Coosawatchie, South Carolina, along I-95 then head west for a few miles. Charming Beaufort sits about 30 miles east along the Atlantic and Hilton Head Island is another 15 miles or so away.
Congaree, which sits in its own secluded corner of the South Carolina lowcountry, keeps to itself, which was a big part of the overall design. There is no large sign along the two-lane blacktop announcing Congaree. Just an easy-to-miss wrought iron gate tucked in among the live oaks that frame the back-in-time drive into the club which sits on a former rice plantation.
With its collection of white buildings scattered around the property, it looks like a movie set – and it was. It’s where the movie “Something To Talk About” was filmed and one of the small cottages is named for actress Julia Roberts, who lived there during filming.
