South Carolina Cotton Trail
Follow in the footsteps of Gen. William T. Sherman’s Union Army which passed through the Cotton Trail on its way into North Carolina during the Carolinas’ Campaign in 1865. This driving tour highlights the cotton industry from farm to gin and everything in between. Real cotton fields line the roads as the trail goes from I-20 (Bishopville) through Hartsville, Darlington, Society Hill, Chesterfield, Cheraw, Bennettsville, Clio and on to I-95 near Dillon. Many sites along the trail are historic in nature and depict the architecture and “way of life” of the day. From the time cotton was “king” in the South through present day, African-Americans have played a major role in the agricultural developments of South Carolina.
This quiet park offers a three-mile boardwalk, five miles of nature trails, countless birds, and a statewide variety of plants and trees, providing a most rewarding spot for hiking, nature study and picnicking.
Governor’s Run Golf Club
Though most of the well-conditioned fairways are comfortably wide, a few, such as the dogleg par-4 sixth, require precise tee shots to stay in play. Best Hole: No. 5, a 175-yard par-3 guarded by water on the left side, a front bunkers and a densely wooded hazard on the right, making accuracy a must.
