Aiken, South Carolina rests just a short 16-mile drive from the neighboring city of Augusta, Georgia, where the Augusta National draws in golf enthusiasts from around the world and produces some of the country’s top PGA players. (You’ll find us cheering for Aiken natives Scott Brown and Kevin Kisner.) Because of the local passion for the game, there are incredible opportunities to play in and outside of the gates of Woodside. Try out the Aiken Golf Club, for example: constructed in 1912, it is a rare and pristine look into the history of golf in the United States. Partially designed by world-renowned John Inglis, tested by the likes of Fred Astaire and hosts of other celebrities who have called Aiken home over the years, and celebrated for being the first course in America to feature tees specially designed for women, this course is one any golfer must check off their golf bucket list.
