Golf courses & instruction

Golf at Wild Dunes Setting us apart from other golf courses in South Carolina and Charleston, Wild Dunes ranked as 'Best In The State' by Golf Digest, both of our 18-hole, championship golf courses were designed by Tom Fazio and offer two distinct and equally exciting approaches to the game you, and we, have a passion for. The Links course takes you on an unforgettable path through massive sand dunes and finishes along the Atlantic Ocean. And the challenges of the Harbor course's intricate layout, including the Intracoastal Waterway, make every game here one to remember.

Our South Carolina golf courses will captivate you during your round of golf, and will have you returning to play them again and again.
