GOLF AT WILD DUNES RESORT

Fact Sheet

Both the Harbor Course and the Links Course are creations of famed course designer Tom Fazio, (the Links was his first solo design) and offers some of the most beautiful fairways found throughout the Lowcountry. These two courses complete the 36-hole golf facility at Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms, less than 30 minutes away from historic Charleston, South Carolina.

To create the Harbor Course, Fazio drew upon his talent and imagination to shape more than $1 million worth of soil into distinctive man-made dunes, a strategy he hailed as the “wild dune” effect. Adorned with large greens and numerous and severe hazards, 17 of the 18 holes incorporate water, marsh or both, and the bunkering is more extensive than on the Links Course. Nine holes of the Harbor Course are situated along the Intracoastal Waterway requiring shots from one island to another across the waters of Morgan Creek. The resulting 6,359 yards of play presents a par 70 course that no trip to Charleston is complete without playing.

Prevailing ocean breezes, massive dunes, and natural hazards create fun, yet challenging play on the Links Course. Recently renovated with Tiftdwarf greens built to United States Golf Association (USGA) specifications, the 6,722 yard, par 72 course permits players to walk the length of the course regardless of time or day, allowing players to enjoy the seaside masterpiece in the traditional way the game has been played for centuries.

"I saw right away that it was an architect's dream," Fazio said of the Links Course. "It had all the elements you could ask for -- trees, water, dunes, and an ocean coast. The routing was relatively easy because some of the holes looked like they had been there forever. The place reminded me of Pine Valley… An architect comes across that kind of land only once or twice in a lifetime."

Wild Dunes Resort is ranked a “Top 20 Southern Golf Resort” (Condé Nast Traveler), “20 Best Carolina Golf Resort” (Links), “#2 Best Charleston, SC Public Golf Course” (PGA.com) and a “5th Top Golf Resort in South Carolina” (South Carolina Golf Ratings Panel). Wild Dunes Resort’s Links Course has been ranked among the “Best Courses You Can Play” (Golfweek), “Most Memorable in the State” (SC Golf Ratings Panel) and a "Top 25 Tom Fazio Courses You Can Play" (Links).

The luxury doesn’t end there. PGA Class A golf professionals are available to conduct golf schools and instruction for all ages and levels of players, including private lessons and Video Swing Analysis. The Resort also offers a driving range, chipping and putting greens, locker rooms and two fully stocked golf shops. Families are also encouraged to take advantage of Destination Family Golf, offering juniors aged 16 or under free play after 3 p.m. when playing with a paying adult.
