The Links at Stono Ferry is Charleston Golf at its best! An 18-hole regulation length golf course in Hollywood, South Carolina.
At 6616 totaly yards from the back tee boxes, (features 4 sets of teeboxes) Middlle (72-6085-122-69.30)Forward  (72-4928-119-68.40) Other (72-5685-111-64.90) The Links at Stono Ferry, combines scenery with a unique historic elemen to create a very memorable golf experience. Set amidst South Carolina Lowcountry breezes from the Intracoastal Waterway of the Stono River and centuries-old live oaks, Stono Ferry is a refuge and a true mecca for the golf lover. The Links features several historic landmarks, including a bunker on the 12th hole dating back to the Revolutionary War and tee box on the 14th hole set on a peninsula which was the original ferry landing for the surrounding plantation. The fact that the course play short by distance, it is by no means a course to be taken lightly. The importance on placing your tee shot in a location to attack the greens, unimpeded is critical to scoring well. I say this because the greens are very undulating and well protected, so hitting hybrid off the tee and having 17 into the green is a much better choice than trying to push the issue and hit driver. The water all up the left on #3 is a perfect example of how a seemingly playable, scoring hole can bit back hard, as I pulled a double bogie and had to drop a 20 footer for that. Water all down the right side on #4, so I smartened up and pulled 2 iron. Par 5's are reachable for longer hitters, (495 yards and 524 on the front) but I still feel bombing drives is poor course management at The Links
The front nine flows quite well through massive oaks and pines, thanks to course architect Ron Garl's vision, while the back nine is more open and features views
of the S.C. marshlands.

The Links at Stono Ferry is a semi-private golf facility open for member and public play.
