Golf Advisor: Top Courses in South Carolina
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
Played last week at the Links Course at Wild Dunes. With the extremely cold weather in the southeast this winter I was very surprised to find the course in excellent shape. The fairways were overseeded and full of rye. The greens were in excellent shape and rolled smooth and at a very nice speed. The starter was a nice gentlemen, the pace of play was decent, not great. The course is alot of fun to play, and is pretty challenging without killing you. The wind itself is a huge defense for the course. There are not a ton of forced carries. Most of the water in play (marsh and ocean) are on the sides. Most of the fairways are rather forgiving, however, most approach shots tighten up around the greens due to either bunkers or marsh. The greens are rather undulating and its rather easy to 3 putt and hard to get up and down when you miss.
All in all if you can get a deal its worth a play.
Challenging but fair
Played in late December fairways and greens were in great shape. Someone must have made the greens keeper mad that morning the pin positions for the weather conditions were beyond tough. Overall the course is challenging and fair not many shots that aren't right in front of you to see. I recommend anyone in the area go oit and play it.
A bit overpriced for the area and the competition
Nice course, a fair amount of trouble and nice green complexes. They did not change the cups from the day prior which was not a nice impression.
Great Course, Still too Expensive
This course is great to play. It's short, but the wind comes into play and knocks down the distance on a good amount of shots. Everything was great, from staff to pace of play. The only drawback is that this course is very overpriced. It's worth paying $85 bucks for the prime tee times and about $60 for twilight rates. All that being said, I would definitely play this course over the Harbor course if in Wild Dunes.
God course but Too expensive
The course condition is good, both fairway and green. But if you have paid the full rack rate and expecting spectacular views then thou will be disappointed. There are some water views at the end but very average view. For me it turned out a great round. I booked a 4pm game at $75 and was able to start the game at 3pm. Finishing at 730pm, way before sunset.
