The River Golf Club

6 Nights, 5 Days and 3 Rounds of Golf

Escape to the area known as Thoroughbred Country – where horses rule! The climate is suitable for year-round training and equestrian events – not to mention, year round golf. 

Named to Southern Living’s top 5 best small towns; Aiken has a lot to offer. Only 20 minutes from Augusta, GA, and every April you can almost here the roars from Amen Corner. Local shopping, polo matches and mouth-watering restaurants are waiting for your exploration. To all that have attended Great Escapes in the past, you know we put the priority on golf, experiences and food, and Aiken easily has what we are looking for!
3 Rounds of Golf:
Aiken Golf Club
Steeped in history, The Aiken Golf Club provides an experience long forgotten among modern courses. Established in 1912, this course is situated in the center of Aiken, SC amongst the rolling Carolina sandhills. Completely renovated and reopened in 1999, this course has never looked or played better.

The River Golf Club
This Jim Fazio design is across the Savannah River from Downtown Augusta in North Augusta, South Carolina. Set along the river there are wetlands and lakes throughout the course; then Fazio adds the bunkers.. Greens are large and fast. Number 17 is a relatively short par 3 that looks back into the downtown Augusta skyline…fun to make birdie there.

Mount Vintage Golf Club
A 27 hole Tom Jackson design with rolling hills, picturesque holes and stonework bridges that help define this club. Every hole on this course you can stand on the tee box or look back down the fairway from the green and have a memorable mental picture or better yet, take a picture to show your friends that didn’t come with you, what they missed.

Great food ranges from “The Alley” local eateries and live music to upscale fine dining. Aiken Brew Company, Malia’s- this chef owned eclectic restaurant serves american fare. Casa Bella is a wonderful Italian eatery located in a Victorian Mansion.
Included in your package: Evening dinners, breakfast daily, welcome reception, closing lunch, a Polo match and trolley tour of historic Aiken.
