Kiawah's Ocean Course may be the best in Charleston, but it's overpriced and often overbooked. The city has several other public courses worth playing. Just across the water and ten minutes from downtown is the Patriots Points Links at Charleston Harbor in Mt. Pleasant. The par-three seventeenth is frequently rated the city's best hole. History buffs should play a round at The Links at Stono Ferry, on the site of a Revolutionary War battlefield. The Ron Garl design was voted the area's top course in 2003.
