Awesome course with the last two holes right on the beach. Great pace of play during the week. Friendly staff. Challenging layout
Love the course. But wish we would’ve known about the sanded greens ahead of time. A discount would’ve been appropriate.
Disappointment in Wild Dunes
Folks were not friendly, the so called “golf ambassador” was more like the “ golf tyrant” ...
The day was ruined because we were” to slow” and could not enjoy the beauty of the course ...
The only person that was both personable and displayed any form of Southern hospitality was the cart lady, Molly ... She was a hard working young lady who displayed a wonderful attitude ...
Won’t waste my hard earned money here again that’s for sure ...
What an unbelievable experience playing this course. The scenery and layout were unrivaled, especially as you come up on 15-18. The course was in great shape, staff very friendly and helpful. Well worth the cost to experience this course. Watch out for gators!
Course was in great shape. Greens were a bit slow today but probably due to rain earlier in the morning.
It's was my first time playing the course.
I'm an average golfer and my overall thought on the course is you are paying for the destination more so than the course.
While the course was in great shape, you are only on the ocean for 3 holes., I would have been extreme unsatisfied if I had paid full price of $181 for a morning tee time. Instead I paid $95 for twilight (Easter week).
Much more reasonable in my humble opinion.
The pace of play was just fine. No one crawling up on you.
Beer pricing was a bit high ($60.00 for a 12 pack before tip) but they do give you 2 waters in a cooler.
There were plenty of gators to see as well.
The course was in good shape. Greens were a little inconsistent was paired with a member which helped with course layout.
The course was in great shape and the layout is beautiful. Tees, fairways, & greens were all in excellent condition.
Cart girl came through a few times per side.
The last few holes are along the ocean and it's a stunning view.
The only downside was that the range is limited to 225 yards so our first driver/wood swings of the day were on the course, which is not ideal. Luckily, #1 is a par-5 so you can make up for an errant tee shot.
Overall, we had a great time on a challenging, but fun course! I'd definitely play here again.
Links Course at Wild Dunes Resort: Local favorite for a reason
The Links Course underwent a substantial renovation by Tom Fazio's firm a few years ago, and it is, from what I gathered when I played the Wild Dunes Club Car Pro-Am, the more popular course among the locals. The most obvious improvements on The Links are vastly expanded greens and rebuilt white-sand bunkers. These new greens, feature increased undulations and wider variety of pin positions, and the surrounding turf is a newer variety of Bermuda grass, which is not nearly as "grabby" or "sticky" as you'll find on The Harbor Course.
Aside from the cramped 351-yard 10th hole – where a combination of overly-rumpled fairway, odd bunkering, and semi-blind landing areas make club choice on the tee basically impossible – there's not a bad hole on The Links Course. The round culminates at the 412-yard 17th and the new 185-yard 18th, though, with the waves crashing on the beach and the prevailing ocean winds turning club selection into a crap shoot.
The Links Course has some unexpected elevation changes, both from tee to green and fairway to green, on a few holes. The approach to the elevated green on the par-4 11th is shielded by mounding, and the tee box of the par-3 12th is perched a few dozen feet above the level of the green, making club selection tricky. As for the greens on both tracks, we tended to over-read putts on the Harbor Course all day, and under-read putts on The Links.
The Links Course at Wild Dunes is the local favorite for a reason: It's got plenty of challenge with enough forgiveness to ensure that even if you're having an off day, you'll still have fun. Greens are bigger, turf is more forgiving, and there's somewhat less water (still plenty of chances to see alligators, though).
Being winter the course was in amazing shape. Fairways were lush and greens rolled very well. Some parts were a little wet from all the rain over the last month. It was nice the carts were 90 degree and not cart path only.
Played the course for the first time and enjoyed every hole of it especially the last three.
They are right at the ocean and make out of a good round a perfect one.
Will play this course again
Good value. Played the Harbor course for $70. I would play it again for sure. I was expecting a lot better service from the staff since this is in Isle of the Palms but overall it was a fun time.
Very challenging. Amazing views and course was in perfect shape. Highly recommend playing here. First time booking.
If you are going to golf at Isle of Palms, this is definitely the place to go. Although it is slightly more expensive than Wild Dunes' Harbor Course, it is in better condition and has a wider range of holes with different feels.
Although I found a few holes to be somewhat plain and nothing to write home about (i.e., 1, 14, 15), there are so many others that are somewhat unique (i.e., 10, 12) and scenic (i.e., 16, 17, 18) that on-balance it was a great golf experience and a good break from my regular tracks.
The course was overall in excellent condition (other than a few tee boxes that were a little rough), the greens were firm and rolled true and the fairways were in good shape.
To a person, the staff that we interacted with was friendly, helpful and courteous - like they were truly pleased to have you at the course.
Also, unlike the Harbor Course, this course was not crowded and we were able to play at our own pace (a twosome, were able to finish in around 3.5 hours).
Further, unlike the Harbor Course, there is a driving range and ample parking.
Bottom Line: A great golf experience. Course is beautiful, varied, in great condition and not over-crowded. It will definitely be my first choice for Isle of Palms golf in the future.
Very nice track
In the Charleston area and got a day to play. This was a wonderful experience. Nicely conditioned for late spring, smooth greens, tight fairways.
Lots of treachery to avoid.
Really enjoyed the company of a retured couple from Atlanta and would look forward to returning to this course again.
Windy fun at Isle of Palms
First time playing the Wild Dunes Links course. A Fazio course that I believe he designed with better golfers in mind. There are some really funky holes like no 10, a short par 4 that is guaranteed to bamboozle even the best golfer with its elevation and sloped fairway.
17 and 18 are the only two ocean holes but were playing really hard on Sunday due to high wind off the ocean.
I will definitely play there again given the opportnity
