Harbor at Wild Dunes Golf Links
Wild Dunes Harbor Course, designed by Tom Fazio, is said to be cut from some of the prettiest real estate in South Carolina. Water makes up a great deal of the Harbor Course layout. After all, half the course runs along the world’s longest water hazard, The Intracoastal Waterway. Fazio claims the Harbor Course to be one of his favorites. "Working on the Harbor Course was very satisfying to me as a designer because we had to create everything. It was a very challenging, and ultimately, a very satisfying project."

Great track, nice conditions, and some beautiful views as well as wildlife.
Looking forward to returning.
Wild dunes harbor course
The course was difficult with very narrow fairways and small greens. Course is very well taken care of. Pace of play wasn’t bad because our group was one of the first groups in the morning. It was very crowded as we left. If planning to play this course recommend a early tee time.
Course in good condition with great scenery
Tight course but in great condition and stunning views. Lots of water but clever layout so not too intimidating! Had cool box and water on the buggy which was most welcome when we played. Club house/bar shut at 3pm so we weren’t able to have a drink afterwards otherwise good experience.
Course was in great condition. It was tough if you couldn't keep the ball in the fairway. I lost a number of balls today. I would recommend this course to all levels.
Great course in CHS
My brother is in town from California and we visited the Harbor course. We both were pleasantly surprised with the conditions of the course despite being recently aerated. We both were challenged with the tight fairways but thoroughly enjoyed the layout and the views of the marsh on the course. We will most definitely be back!!
A unique layout along the intercoastal
Very scenic but a little tight with water and marsh. Bring plenty of extra golf balls. No driving range on-site. Course was in great shape. Lots of fun.
Nice track along the IC waterway
Course was in good shape overall but a few greens have some bare patches. Nice layout with several holes running along offshoots of the inter coastal waterway. There are some very picturesque spots on the course.
This layout is pretty tight though. Leave the driver in the bag if you are a big hitter and hit straight off of the tee or you will lose balls. Great overall course and a good deal if you can find a good price.
Had a great time playing the course the staff was friendly and professional the course is challenging. Have to hit good shots to be competitive
WOW, What a stunning golf course, the Tom Fazio design intricately weaves the golf course into the terrain and around Water Hazards. Holes 9-11 is one of the best stretches in the United States. They’re majestic and run right along the intercoastal waterway, using the terrain to their advantage. This golf course is VERY unforgiving, but it is also VERY fun. I got my round for $60, what an awesome deal, I would’ve paid $150 to play this course.
With water in play on most every hole this can be a quite challenging course.
Great course conditions and fabulous weather.
Just a strange experience
Wild Dunes Harbor Course, while less popular than its more celebrated sister, the Links Course, should have been an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, it was not.
It started with the parking. All I can say is, "Unbelievable." It took a good 20 minutes to find a place to park. We just kept driving and driving until finally a random woman noticed we were searching, and she pointed out a spot, ran over to it, and held it for us until we could navigate the never-ending maze of narrow/one-way streets. Just ridiculous.
Next was the clubhouse staff, which acted like neither my wife nor I mattered. The only thing that could take their attention away from their own conversation was my credit card. At a resort course, I expect better. The cart staff and starter were nice enough, but that first face when you walk in the door needs to be more than somebody who simply takes your money.
Finally, the course. In a word, it was weird. The tiniest greens I've ever seen. One of them on the short par-4 10th was probably smaller than my living room. Another on the par-3 11th was no more than 6 or 7 paces wide ... I missed the green left and had a 12-foot putt from the fringe to a flag that was centered (see the photo). And the course was so soft. It hadn't rained all that much, yet all my drives left huge pitch marks and stayed within 18 inches of where they landed. The course is very narrow, which isn't a bad thing except that the longest holes played into the prevailing wind. And finally, the mile-long drive between the 4th and 5th holes. We almost got lost. Add all this to no driving range and the world's smallest putting green, and it doesn't feel all that resort-like.
All in all, I was glad when the round was over. Honestly, I just can't recommend this course. There are so many better choices in the Charleston area.
Parking is a joke. Allow plenty of time.
Course is narrow but a Fazio Fair. Interesting.
Fun layout. Very scenic. There is one green to tee ride of about a half mile. Ample fairways. Many holes are very challenging on the approach. Sand bunkers are mediocre. Lots of gravel and course sand. We played after a heavy rain and the course was soaked but had drained well. Unless you can carry the ball over 230-240, move up. The 4 pars are very long from the white tees. There is plenty of challenge from Gold. Review by two seniors.
Hit it straight!
Course tip from staff was "hit it straight" ... and they were right. Great layout and condition of course. Some holes along Inter-coastal Waterway. Challenging but fair. Tight is the best description as offline shots have good chance to find a hazard (water, marsh). Some greens are really small (shorter Par 3's especially). Friendly staff. Was high of low 50's with 10+ MPH winds so not many playing, thus we got around in 3.5 hrs. No driving range (can go to sister course (Links) to hit balls). I'd play again cause who doesn't like to test their ability to hit good shots!
