Welcome To Santee, South Carolina!

On behalf of the Town of Santee please allow me to welcome you too our website, thank you for your interest and hopefully look forward to welcoming you to our quaint little Town.

We are certainly known for our golf, the tremendous value we provide, plus the ease of accessibility around town for our guests.  But we have so much more…

Santee generally attracts in the neighborhood of 100,000 visitors annually, but not all come for just the golf!  Our small town is dissected by I-95and we are on the south shore of majestic Lake Marion, the largest freshwater lake in South Carolina.  Connected to Lake Moultrie to the southeast these two bodies of water allow boaters to travel from Santee to Charleston.  In addition these 2 lakes have accounted for many State and World fish records!

Nature lovers will love our Wildlife Refuge and State Park!  Other than fishing of course anything on and around and the lake from Birding to Boating!

Our state of the art Conference center has proven very popular for small group and conference as well as family reunions and weddings!  With our golf and fishing you can mix business with please.  Our staff will make it work for you!
