There are also a slew of professional golf architects who have left behind their names on courses, Nicklaus, Palmer, Norman, Floyd, Player, Toski, plus a couple of Michigan architects Harry Bowers and Tom Doak. Some of South Carolina's courses have become world famous. Of note are, Pete Dye's Harbor Links, Tom Fazio's Wild Dunes, the five signature courses of Kiwah's Island Resort and home of the 1997 World Cup and Palmetto Dunes. Other great tracts in the area include, Arthur Hill's Coosaw Creek http://coosawcreek.com , a semi-private club that allows daily play, Shadowmoss Plantation GC, a Russell Breeden course and Crowfield GC and Pine Forest CC, a couple of Bob Spense courses, Seabrook Island and Fairfield Ocean Ridge.
