Powerful and loose, charismatic and charming, gracious, yet passionately competitive; Palmer’s playing style and personality revolutionized the game. Those elements which made him a legendary athlete also make him a visionary designer. The Island Nine at Champions Retreat shares the personality of its architect, at once challenging and auspicious.
“The Island Nine is flanked on one side by the broad Savannah River and on the other side by the Little River. The spectacular hardwoods and pines along the river bank have been saved and the fairways have been raised to take advantage of the beautiful vistas out in the rivers. There is not a better setting for golf in the South.”
– Arnold Palmer
