Notes: The Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Community Services Division, sought to rebuild the base’s 1947 Fred Findley-designed golf course.  Located on the southern most tip of Parris Island in southeastern South Carolina, the site is bordered by salt marsh wetlands and deepwater creeks on the southern, eastern and western boundaries. Freshwater wetlands are located throughout the interior of the site. The site is known for the historic Spanish settlement of Saint Elena and also hosts the largest population of Live Oak trees in the state. A case study of this project is available in pdf format. A picture of the course layout is also available.
