The Aiken Golf Club

The Aiken Golf Club is steeped in golf history. Originally built in 1912, with a portion of its design attributed to John Inglis, it is one of the oldest courses in the nation. Professional golfers Babe Didrikson Zaharis and Patty Berg among others, played here. Fred Astaire and other celebrities came to Aiken during the cold winter months to test their skills. May Dunn was instrumental in making it the first course in America to feature tees especially for women.

Best hole: Number 16, a 198-yard par-3 called "Valley" that plays from an elevated tee through a canopy of 150-year-old pines to a back-to-front sloping green guarded by two bunkers on each side.

Masters week rates: $100 per person includes tee gift
