A Sporting Weekend
A Sportsman’s Weekend in Camden, SC
The Ultimate Guys’ Weekend Awaits
Ok, so you’ve been tapped to plan a Guys’ Weekend. Come to Camden and you come to the right place. Our area is chock-full of not-your-average-guy things to do – everyday. And most of our sporting attractions include on-site event venues to host a full-on private party.
If Golf is your thing, start the day with a round or two. Camden Country Club is a private facility with a course designed by the renowned golf course designer/architect, Donald Ross. The par 70 course has just completed renovations. Contact Club Pro Matt McCarley for membership and details.
Or consider play at Pine Creek Golf Course & Country Club. Lovely. Challenging. 18-hole course features 6,373 yards of golf. The cool owners will help you put together your own “shotgun start” or whatever your pleasure.
Ready for eats, head to Downtown Camden and make the 19th hole drinks and dinner at Sam Kendall’s. Across the street is Steeplechase Sports Bar & Grill. Both restaurants are super watering holes and have “the game of the day” on the big screens.
Did someone suggest hunting? For the serious hunters in your party, head north to Liberty Hill to Kershaw County’s 8,000 hunting preserve. Species that can be hunted are Deer, Turkey, Quail, and Pheasants. With elevation ranging from 721 feet to 1438 feet, you’ll also enjoy hiking and wildlife viewing.
Want something a little more organized? Sporting clays? The very best is Hermitage Farm Shooting Sports. Nestled deep in the woods just south of downtown, owner Joe Cantey has FITASC designed sporting clays course, skeet shooting area, wobble trap and 5 stands provide a wide-range of shooting sport activities. It’s a natural habitat where you can learn, hone or simply enjoy superlative clay sports that Cantey refers to as “golf with a shotgun.” Joe and his team can also organize catered breakfast, lunch and dinners especially for your gathering.
For dinner the perfect place to gather for drinks and dinner is award-winning Mill Pond Steakhouse, in historic Boykin. Classic surf ‘n’ turf with a Southern accent is offered in a historic venue with scenic millpond views.
