Houndslake Country Club centers around a private 27-hole Championship golf course designed in 1974 by Joe Lee, who planned the likes of Doral, La Costa and Disney World. The three nines provide pleasure to the average golfer and a memorable challenge to the champion. Each nine measures a little over 3,300 yards and they each play to a par of 36. Houndslake Country Club was designed to offer versatility for both the weekend golfer and the professional. The Dogwood and Laurel nines have played host to the 1977 and 1981 South Carolina Golf Association Amateur Championship, the 1982 and 1984 South Carolina Golf Association Four Ball Championship, the 2001 and 2002 South Carolina PGA Pro Junior, several United States Amateur Qualifiers, The Women's Transnational Amateur, Joe Wyatt High School Junior Invitational, and is the home of the Women's Eastern Golf Association Senior Championship.
The Azalea nine boasts 3222 yards of fairway winding through the original homes of Houndslake.
The par five 5th hole has been the subject of many photographs throughout the years.
The Dogwood nine measures 3326 yards and plays to a par of 36.
Dogwood number 7 is as beautiful a par 5 as there is in the South.
The Laurel nine is the newest of our three nines. Completed in 1978, it is considered the most difficult. The signature fifth hole is a 560 yard par 5, with the third shot playing across 100 yards of the Laurel Lake. The lake stretches along the entire length of the par 4 sixth hole.
Together, these courses make up the perfect round of golf to satisfy all levels of players.
