Golf Course Communities


Daniel Island Club Rivertowne Country Club Dunes West Golf Club


Daniel Island Club- Daniel Island Club is located on Charleston’s Daniel Island.  This is a private golf course community and is exclusive to the Daniel Island Club members and guests.  The world renowned Tom Fazio and Rees Jones each designed their own golf course for the enjoyment and exclusive use of Daniel Island Club members. You will find everything to be first rate at this member only country club.  With such great golf course designers as Tom Fazio and Rees Jones, you can be assured that Daniel Island Club members will be enjoying great golf for many years to come.

Rivertowne Country Club- Rivertowne Country Club is designed by the golf legend Arnold Palmer.  This golf course is completely “Charleston lowcountry” with 13 holes along Horlbeck Creek and the Wando River.  While out playing the course, you will really need to focus and hit good shoots for the difficult back nine.  In my opinion, the par three fourteenth and extremely long and windy par four eighteenth are the hardest holes on the back nine.

Rivertowne Country Club provides golfers of all handicaps a fair challenge with five sets of tee boxes to choose from. You can play eighteen in the morning and then go home and check your crab pot right from your own private dock. If it’s shrimp season, you might try your luck with the cast net.  After lunch the world is your oyster.  You might decide to head out for an afternoon sail along the Charleston Harbor or just take it easy and read a nice relaxing book enjoying the outside breezes from your piazza.

This is the site where you would have found the original antebellum era’s Lexington Plantation.  This elegant entrance to Dunes West’s antebellum era clubhouse is lined with 300 year old majestic oak trees draped in Spanish moss.  The clubhouse is perfectly situated on Wagner creek which gives you great golf course and waterfront views.  This is a great place to hang out and enjoy a cheeseburger and fries either inside the clubhouse or outside on the patio.

 Resort Golf Courses


Kiawah Island Resort Wild Dunes Resort Seabrook Island Resort


Kiawah Island is located 25 miles from Historic Downtown Charleston.  This luxury resort is home of five great championship golf courses. Kiawah Island Resort is also always ranked by tennis magazine as one of the top 10 tennis facilities in the United States.  Kiawah offers the tennis player 27 courts and some great instruction and practice facilities. 

The Ocean Course- The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Resort is designed by Pete Dye and was host to the 1991 Ryder Cup.  The Ocean Course is always rated by Golf Digest as one of the top 100 courses in the United States to play.  The majority of the holes are along the Atlantic Ocean making this Scottish style links course a very difficult test of golf.  The golf holes which are not along the Atlantic Ocean will still test your golf skills by bringing into play lowcountry marsh, sand dunes and lagoons.  The Ocean course will test the skills of even the best golfers in the world.  The majority of professional golf course writers proclaim the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Resort as the best golf course in the lowcounty.  With ten holes directly on the Atlantic Ocean, it is hard to disagree.  The par three seventeenth and the par four eighteenth are two of golf’s most difficult closing holes.  The par three seventeenth is 197 yards and requires the golfer to hit the perfect shot over water.  You will also need to hit the green and not just carry the water hazard because this is a very heavily guarded green.  If you do miss the green, you are sure to add strokes to your score card because this hole is a very difficult up and down.  On the final hole, for your second shot, you are left with a downhill approach to the green.  The green will appear from the fairway to be  four paces off the Atlantic Ocean's breaking waves.  The eighteenth is an extremely difficult 437 yard par four, where you will find the last full swing of the day to be one of golf's most intimidating shots anywhere. 

The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Resort will play host to golf’s greatest players and championships for many years to come.  This is a venue where players like to bring their wives and family to enjoy quality time together. The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island will stand the test of time and remain as one of golf’s premier courses for years to come.  This is truly a remarkable course that only a few special people can call home. 

Turtle Point- The Turtle Point golf course, designed by Jack Nicklaus in 1981, is where you will find the renowned Kiawah Island resort’s golf practice facility. This “state of the art” eight hundred and twenty seven thousand square feet complex offers the golfer everything they could possibly imagine to improve their golf game. While playing Turtle Point golf course, you will find holes 14, 15, and 16 along the Atlantic Ocean and they are also the most challenging. The par four fifteenth playing a long 412 yards requires a very difficult approach shot to a very small green.  Turtle Point’s par fours are long and narrow which makes scoring difficult.  Your hitting the ball into these fairways is a must for shooting a low round. Jack Nicklaus recently completed a 3.7 million dollar renovation which went toward reworking the greens, bunkers and cart paths.  These changes now give the Turtle Point golf course a more modern look. Remember the par fours are most difficult and you will need to make the most of the par threes and fives to score a low round on this Jack Nicklaus designed course. 

Osprey Point- The Osprey Point golf course, designed by Tom Fazio in 1986, is a true favorite among women golfers.  The Osprey Point golf course is always featured in Women’s golf magazine as a course which is friendly to the woman golfer.  This is probably because Osprey Point has less forced carries than the other Kiawah courses and the ladies tee boxes really do shorten the course.  Although, the world-renowned golf designer made sure that Osprey Point is a challenge to all golfers of every skill level by allowing the golfer to choose from five different tee box positions.  From the back tees, you will find this course to have many holes which require difficult shot making strategy and a true test of your course management skills.  The Atlantic Ocean breezes will also give you additional risk/reward considerations while playing the short par fours. 

Cougar Point- The Cougar golf course located on the Kiawah River is designed by Gary Player.  This golf course redesign is located and replaces the old Marsh Pointe golf course.  If you ever played Old Marsh Point, you would know Cougar Point resembles nothing similar to its predecessor and has been completely renovated from tee box to green.  Gary Player totally redesigned the entire course and has added some 600 yards in length.  The little Marsh Point changed it's name and isn’t little any more. This golf course is Kiawah Islands best kept golf course secret.  It hardly makes the press.  Cougar Point golf course deserves more recognition from golf’s critics. This course also offers some of the best wildlife encounters which are found along the Kiawah River. There is one wildlife encounter you will wish to avoid at Cougar Point and that is the alligator.  There are some big alligators along the river banks here so watch out for those gators! 

Cassique- The Cassique golf course, designed by Tom Watson in 1999, is Kiawah Island's residents private course.  The Kiawah Island Club’s, Cassique golf course, is Tom Watson’s first solo golf course design.  The front nine resembles Scottish links and the back nine is Charleston Lowcountry charm. You will find the Kiawah River, lowcounty salt marsh, sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean on the back nine which makes the back nine the most difficult golf holes.  The Kiawah Island Club’s, Cassique golf course, will make the professional golf writers short list of best residential golf course communities to call home and play.  The Cassique golf course will also make the short list of best modern day golf courses.  Kiawah Island Club members will enjoy this premier golf course for many years to come.  Tom Watson, you really did a great job on this one.

River- The River course, designed by Tom Fazio in 1995, is another private course for Kiawah Island Club members.  The Kiawah Island Club’s River course also makes the short list of modern day golf courses.  The River course offers its member’s multi-tired greens which is somewhat unique in the lowcountry.  There had to have been plenty of truck loads of fill dirt brought in for this golf course design. The River course gets its name from the mile and a half stretch along the Kiawah River.  This is another excellent golf course for the Kiawah Island Club members to enjoy playing for many years to come.

Wild Dunes Resort is located at the northern point of the Isle of Palms.  This beautiful seven mile long Barrier Island provides its residents easy access to downtown Charleston and Mt. Pleasant.  Wild Dunes residences make up about half of the Isle of Palms population.  Wild Dunes Resort offers the golfer 36 great championship golf holes all designed by Tom Fazio.

Links Course-The Wild Dunes Links course is always rated as one of Golf Digest’s top 100 resort golf courses in the world.  This Scottish Links designed golf course requires precision shot making throughout your entire round.  You will find the final three closing holes 16, 17, and 18 along the Atlantic Ocean some of golf’s most difficult closing holes.

The Harbor Course-The Harbor Course is the second golf course at Wild Dunes Resort and it also makes for another great test of golf. This very difficult layout will bring into play the Intracoastal Waterway, salt water marsh and lagoons.  The Harbor course hazards will test your course management skills and club selections. In my opinion, The Harbor Course is just as challenging as the world renowned Links course.

At the end of your round, you will need to celebrate at Edgar's “the nineteenth hole” for a cocktail.  You might also be inclined to head down to the Wild Dunes spa for some after golf relaxation.  Wild Dunes Resort provides its residents a laid back Island living atmosphere with luxurious resort amenities all of which is amazingly close to downtown Historic Charleston and Mt. Pleasant.

Seabrook Island Resort is located 25 miles from Historic Downtown Charleston.  This luxury resort is home to two great championship golf courses. Seabrook Island Resort is also always ranked by tennis magazine as one of the top 50 tennis resorts in the United States.  You will find 15 clay courts to play along with great professional instruction.

Crooked Oaks-golf course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. in 1978.  This golf course is private and only available for play to owners and guests of the Seabrook Island resort.  Charleston’s charm is evident throughout this entire Crooked Oaks golf course layout.  Here you will find many large oak trees with the branches obstructing your approach shots to the greens.  These overhanging live oak limbs with hanging Spanish moss probably makes this Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed lowcountry golf course the one which most resembles Hilton Head’s Sea Pines at Harbor Town golf course.  This golf course was designed to be golfer friendly to its resident Seabrook Island club members and their guests.  While playing Crooked Oaks golf course, you will need to be very selective off the tees because of its narrow fairways. Crooked Oaks golf course is also the only golf course in the Charleston SC area with bent grass greens which gives the cold weather golfer a little extra advantage. 

The Ocean Winds-golf course was designed by William Bryd in 1975.  This golf course is very different than its sister course Crooked Oaks.  The Ocean Winds golf course takes you through Charleston lowcountry salt marsh and sand dunes.  You will also need to make the necessary adjustments and factor in the Atlantic Ocean breezes. The two Seabrook Island golf courses offer the Seabrook Island Club members two very different types of golf courses to play. You will not have a difficult time in deciding which course you would like to play.  You will be in the mood for wide open fairways with large flat greens like you will find at The Ocean Winds golf course or you will decide to play small faster greens and narrow fairways with beautiful trees and birds abound at the Crooked Oaks course.  Either choice is a good one.

Charleston Golf Courses


Country Club of Charleston Patriots Point Golf Links Charleston Municipal Golf Course


Country Club of Charleston- The city of Charleston’s Country Club was founded in 1786 and is one of the most exclusive private golf clubs in the United States.  The Country Club of Charleston’s golf course was designed by Seth Reynor back in 1925.  Some of the more challenging holes include 8, 11 and 16.  You will definitely enjoy the courses challenging par threes.  They are so difficult that you will find tournament players each year at the Azalea Invitational choosing a lay up to the very difficult 185 yard par three eleventh hole.  The Country Club of Charleston is listed by the USGA as the oldest golf club in the United States.  The County Club of Charleston may become one of the new hosts to the PGA Tour of Champions events.

Patriots Point Golf Links- Patriots Point Golf Course is situated on the Charleston Harbor directly across from Historic Charleston.  It is the most convenient golf course from downtown Charleston.   The Patriots Point Golf Course was designed in 1981 by William Byrd.  The most challenging hole is the par three seventeenth which requires a perfectly hit tee shot onto an island green.  Your local knowledge of the Harbor breezes will come in handy for this club selection.  It can range anywhere from a three iron to eight iron.  This Scottish-Links course is a favorite to many locals.

Charleston Municipal Golf Course- Charleston Municipal Golf course was designed by John Adems and was opened back on July 8, 1929.   These 112 acres of land located along the Stono River were donated by Claudis Bissell Jenkins and his family.  The land was deeded through what is called "specific use" and includes several restrictions, one of which is that if the land should ever be used for anything other than the Charleston municipal golf course then the land would automatically be returned to the Jenkins family.  If you are troubled by the direction the city is taking, then you can sit out on the porch and solve the city’s problems among the other town residents doing the same.  There is a great town discount for the city of Charleston residents, but the non-resident price will not deter you from playing Charleston’s only municipal golf course.
