Patriots Point Links Sits at Mouth of Charleston Harbor

By John Ingoldsby

The city of Charleston is among the culinary capitols of the world, and for golfers looking to take off some of those extra pounds, the area serves up a stunning setting mere minutes away from downtown.

Located just over the amazing Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge in beautiful Mount Pleasant, S.C., the Patriots Points Links on Charleston Harbor, features not only a five-star track, but also an appetizing appeal for history lovers.

The moment you exit the bridge to head toward the course, you enter Patriots Point and are quickly greeted with a massive submarine partially submerged in a grassy park-like setting, and then immediately come upon the famed USS Yorktown aircraft carrier sitting majestically in the water.

Next thing you know, the golf grounds greet you and before you can get your clubs out of the car and onto the practice range, you are looking out on the harbor at famed Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the American Civil War were fired. More
