Course was beautiful staff was great highly requimend
Overall a good golf experience - I would recommend it to a friend. However, I played the Wild Dunes Links Course the following day and, if playing at Wild Dunes, would play the Links over the Harbor course hands-down (even though it is has a some higher fee).
The Harbor Course has a nightmare parking situation (it shares a small lot with the big hotel, tennis center and the beach) and if you don't know that in advance you better show up real early for your tee time. Also, there is no driving range.
As for the course, it is busy and has heavy traffic - like a reasonably priced, public course. Regardless, the course is in pretty good condition. The greens still evidenced aeration within the past month and showed heavy use, but overall rolled true and clean.
The layout is unique and is the first course I recall playing whose turn wasn't near the clubhouse or any other amenities (a halfway house). Given this, it would have been nice to have a beverage cart at some point (which we did not see at all).
To a man, the staff was friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome.
The pace of play was too slow for us - with a fair amount of waiting - however, we were a twosome and there were a lot of foursomes and we finished in about 4 hours, so the pace wasn't slow, just slower than we would have liked.
Bottom Line: A busy course but in as good of shape as you could expect for a heavily used public course. Layout was interesting with numerous pretty and unique holes. The downside is the lack of parking and no range. Overall, a good value (although I recommend the LInks Course just 2 miles down the road).
Nice course. Got to play with a couple of locals. Helped. Play was a little slow. I't play it again. Stay right of the 150 marker on 17.
Will play again!
For a reasonably short course, it's pretty challenging. Greens rolled out pure at a quick pace but not unreasonable. Fairways were lush and rough was nicely cut and not too punishing. Grounds under repair areas were few and well marked. Staff was friendly and true to the Southern charm you would expect. Definitely recommend and will play this course again!
This one of two courses on Isle of Palms managed by the Wild DunesResort. Both are overpriced for what you get, especially the Harbor Course. My wife and I played this tight and challenging course this morning after checking out from the hotel. It should have been more enjoyable, but our expectations were dashed once we discovered that there is no driving range and that many holes were under repair, had temporary tee boxes, or had unmarked tee boxes. Perhaps it was too early in the season, but we should have be given a heads-up about conditions when we reserved our tee time and certainly once we checked in. For the quality of conditions, we should have received a discount or other spiff. Nothing was offered, even after my wife tripped in an unrepaired, hard-to-see pothole in the middle orf the cart path just past the tee boxes at hole #15. She fell hard onto the rough asphalt, twisted her ankle, tore her pants, and bloodied her knee. We had to quit for the day and the rest of our stay. We are severely disappointed in this course and its management.
Challenging but beautiful course
Narrow fairways and water can penalize off shots, but the course was beautiful and well-maintained. Would highly recommend
Great play at Harbor
Great experience at Harbor. Course played as advertised. Great greens, many tough holes. Harbor will test your game, especially from the tees.
Simply a delight
Perfect 75 degree February day, great golf course, all employees were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Course was absolutely beautiful and challenging. Fairways and Greens in excellent shape.
Course was in excellent condition, other than being chilly it was a great day.
What a great course!! It is narrow and the greens are small so be prepared to have to hit it straight. The fairways and greens were in excellent shape. We had really foggy weather which added to the challenge - I can only imagine who beautiful it is when it’s sunny outside
Teeing ground on every hole was uneven and beat up. Overseeded greeens were very slow, grainy and did not have full coverage...bumpy as well. Course is very tight, penalty both right and left on most holes. Golf course has six par three holes which made it pretty monotonous. Bunkers were very inconsistent, some soft and some like concrete. The green surrounds were either firm/tight or had Bermuda rough. Hard to believe they can call this is a resort golf course and not get out their checkbooks and invest in their maintenance budget to provide guests with a better experience. No plans to return
A lot of fun!
I read the other reviews so I already knew there wasn't a driving range and that the fairways were tight and challenging. That being said - what a pretty course! Fun, interesting, excellent pace of play (3.5 hours). Interesting wildlife and birds. Target golf to be sure and some holes kicked my butt, but I'd play again soon!
Good course. Somewhat narrow. Would've been nice to have a driving range at the course, but other than that, a pretty decent course.
Too tight really. Rough was long but not dense enough. No chance of a decent lie in the rough. The ball automatically fell to the bottom. Around the greens this was very annoying.
Not for beginners
The course was beautiful! Tiny greens but rolled good, tight fairways with punishing rough and lots of water.
Great shape at the moment
And a solid golf course. It is a resort so pace of play can (and was) be an issue.
That said, I would play here again tomorrow. Look for online deals as well.
This course is the second course at Wild Dunes. The course runs a continuous loop of 18 so never comes back to clubhouse until done. There is only one bathroom so you can hit it at 6 and 13 I think. We had a beer and a couple waters because it's hot and there is never anywhere to go to the bathroom. My wife and I had to pass 3 groups on last 3 hotels and come back out and find a place to jump back in between groups to finish only because of no bathrooms. Ridiculous. Holes designed well. Although range balls included, they were only available at the links course 2 miles away. Nice course otherwise.
First time playing this course
The course was in good condition. There is a lot of water lining most holes. The first nine you are playing into the wind, the back nine the wind is at your back.
Great greens and layout
As expected, from service to fairway and green conditions are in great condition. , I'm very happy with this course. Booked through phone for the 340pm at $50 rate, normally was 150. Green and fairway are very lush and well manicured as a premium course.
The only thing that I want to mention was for RV or camper golfers. Be warned they don't allow camper inside. But they do provide shuttle service thought out the resort. You just have to park at the administration office building and catch a shuttle over. I'm playing the link course today, was told it is even better, look forward to the round this afternoon.
