Type Resort
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."

Good Value

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!

Terrible Experience

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.
