Supercharge Your Next Santee Getaway

The class of Santee adds more convenience for golfers and travelers alike. A big welcome to Tesla owners

(SANTEE, S.C.) – Clark’s Inn and Restaurant continues to be the “Class Act” of the town in Santee, S.C. Now, for those with the latest and greatest, like the TESLA automobile, you can supercharge your ride in as little as one hour.

If you’re passing through Santee for just a quick stop, you can be fully charged at this Supercharge hook-up in as little time as it takes to grab lunch or dinner at the finest dining establishment in town.

Located within the historic Inn, Clark’s Restaurant is the original Santee business founded in 1947 and has been recognized by Southern Living Magazine in “The South’s Best Road Food.”

If the Supercharger steers you into the well appointed English Style pub and restaurant, you will assuredly connect with some of the friendliest traveling golfers in the South.

The Clark’s Pub is where you find golfers after a day on the course, fishermen after a day on the lake or weary road warriors en route to various destinations.  A great place to kick back, watch a big game, or just catch up.

There is a reason as to why this town of under 1,000 residents, located on the south shore of majestic Lake Marion, continues to attract thousands upon thousands back year after year.

Golf is the reason: When you combine great golf with a daily Stay & Play rate as low as $59, Southern hospitality and the convenience of having three well maintained courses (Santee National, Santee Cooper Country Club and Lake Marion Golf Club) all within a driver and 3 wood of each other and where you will be staying.

You also enjoy more than a dozen other golf options all within an hour of Santee.

Meanwhile, five more courses are found on the north side of Lake Marion about 20 minutes away, the must-plays headed by the Tom Jackson-designed Wyboo Golf Club and the Players Course at Wyboo Plantation. With Interstate 26 about 10 miles south, golfers can make a short day trip to Charleston and play the likes of The Links at Stono Ferry, Legend Oaks, Westcott Plantation and Charleston National to name a few.

It is not just golfers that you are going to find in Santee. Lake Marion has held and continues to hold some pretty impressive world records over the years for large-mouth catfish and stripper bass. If you are a fisherman and have not ever hooked into a stripper you don’t know what you are missing. Known to reach up to 50 pounds in Lake Marion and adjoining Lake Moultrie. You don’t even need to bring equipment, as there are many local guides in the area to take you out and set you up.

Clark’s assortment of accommodations situated among multiple buildings behind its acclaimed restaurant, English style pub and gift shop, some newer one- and two-room suites feature a living room, bedroom with a full bath and a dressing area with a vanity. The living room features a wet bar complete with a small refrigerator, sink and microwave.

In addition to king deluxe and king business options, there are the Bradford and Santee two double-bed rooms, the latter of which is highly popular for golfers using the Old Santee Hospitality Room.

“It was a big deal to be mentioned in Southern Living, it is a big deal for us and it is good for Santee too,” said Bill Clark, the Inn’s second-generation owner.

So don’t let the white table cloths in the restaurant fool you. They cater to all, but it is nice to have a classy comfy place to call home on your getaway. You will no doubt be enticed to have a nicely aged steak and maybe seafood. After all, that is why Southern Living gave it the notoriety that it did.

But don’t leave without trying the fried chicken … and anything grits are optional.
