The Course

Architects: Arnold Palmer and Don Seay
Built: 1992 and redesigned 2012

Spring Island is a private, gated community that prioritizes privacy and security for its residents. Nestled within the breathtaking landscape of Spring Island, South Carolina, the Old Tabby Links golf course, co-designed by Arnold Palmer and Don Seay, epitomizes excellence in course design. Old Tabby is widely acclaimed as one of Arnold Palmer’s top designs, seamlessly integrated into its natural surroundings. What sets Old Tabby Links apart is its dedication to preserving the environment and the absence of visible homes on the course ensuring players are immersed in the course and the beauty of its surroundings. A leisurely round of golf is the ethos here. Paved cart paths have been replaced with dirt walkways, preventing runoff and accommodating walkers. The golf experience is characterized by a casual atmosphere and a no-rush attitude, allowing players to savor every moment. In recognition of its longstanding commitment to environmental stewardship, Old Tabby Links received recertification in the Audubon Cooperative Program for the 20th consecutive year in 2019. 

The course meanders through rolling terrain, marshes, lakes, and majestic oak trees. Players are treated to sweeping vistas of salt marshes, pristine forests, and glimpses of local wildlife throughout their rounds. The name “Old Tabby” pays homage to the historic material used in many early regional structures, and the course draws inspiration from the area’s rich history, incorporating tabby ruins found on the property. These ancient ruins provide a unique and historically significant backdrop to several holes, enhancing the course’s appeal. Old Tabby Links is renowned for its exclusivity, with a limited number of memberships or tee times available, ensuring an intimate and personalized golfing experience. The focus is on delivering impeccable service and meticulous attention to detail, creating an extraordinary atmosphere for players. Membership is typically kept under 100, emphasizing the commitment to providing a first-class experience.
