In 1986, Wade Hampton Golf Club was founded to provide one of the best golf courses and most memorable golf experiences in the world. Since its inception, Wade Hampton has garnered top rankings from Golf Digest and Golf World. Currently it ranks 25th in Golf Digest’s one hundred top golf courses in the country and 1st in the U.S. by Golfweek in residential golf courses. Wade Hampton Members become fast friends and before long, kindred spirits with lifelong ties. An unparalleled golf experience, matched only by an indescribably authentic social camaraderie will forever be the hallmark of the Wade Hampton Experience.
Wade Hampton is an exercise in restraint. The fairways flow through a natural valley between flanking mountain peaks. Selected as Golf Digest''s Best New Private Course of 1987, it has never been out of the Top 40 since it joined America''s 100 Greatest. “Might be the best mountain course in the United States. Tom Fazio did a great job using natural (or semi natural) water features and rocks. The club has utilized sub-air like Augusta in its greens, contributing to some of the best firm, fast yet receptive greens I''ve played. Fazio somehow combined outstanding risk/reward characteristics with playability to create a high-end 100 Greatest course with great playability as well - a difficult combination to achieve.” ~ Golf Course Rater Comments
