Some of the most storied skirmishes of the Revolutionary and Civil wars were fought in Charleston, S.C., though golfers will also remember it as the home of the less bloody but rightfully infamous "War by the Shore," the 1991 Ryder Cup at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course. The city is known for its graceful architecture and tasty Lowcountry eats, and the golf holds its own, too. Here's your sampler menu for Southern comfort.
