Mount Pleasant Golf
Charleston National Country Club
1360 National Drive
Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464
Charleston National was designed to be an exclusive private country club in the manner of Augusta National. Designer Rees Jones was brought in to build the finest golf course on the southeastern coast. Rees carved Charleston National along the Intracoastal Waterway, through the natural wetlands and lagoons and through the pine and oak tree forests. The result was a championship caliber golf course with some of the best views on the coast. Unabashedly beautiful, Charleston National is a golf facility of high standards and impeccable taste. With greens that roll true, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, and superb playing conditions yearround, it is not surprising that Rees Jones calls Charleston National “one of the elite venues in golf.”Dunes West

100 L.O. Bud Darby Blvd.
Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464
Patriots Point Links. The closest golf course to Downtown Charleston (just a 5 minute drive), historic Patriots Point Links in Mount Pleasant, SC is a par-72 championship course located at the foot of the new Arthur Ravenel bridge. A Lowcountry tradition since 1979, “The Point” is famous for its immaculate greens, plush fairways, unmatched service and breathtaking views of Charleston Harbor, Fort Sumter and Shem Creek. GPS equipped golf carts, a lighted all-grass driving range, fully stocked golf shop, and PGA teaching professionals on staff are just some of the amenities you’ll experience. Designed by architect Willard Byrd, the links-style layout at Patriots Point is set on a secluded peninsula, surrounded by the waters of Charleston Harbor. The ever-changing wind that typically sweeps across the harbor also shapes the personality of the challenge from one round to the next. The Par-3 17th hole (pictured) has been annually anointed “The Best Par-3 in the Lowcountry.” It measures just 142 yards; however, with the changing harbor breezes, be prepared to hit as much as 3-iron or as little as Lob Wedge to have your ball navigate its way over the ebbing tides, marshlands, and the occasional alligator to find its way onto the daunting Donald Ross style “upside down” bowl green. Any golf trip to South Carolina’s historic City of Charleston isn’t complete without a round at this memorable course.

1700 RiverTowne Country Club Drive
Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464
River Towne Country Club is an eighteen hole Arnold Palmer signature course, and opened for play February 2002. The course plays through scenic marshlands and majestic live oaks. As evidenced by the club’s name, water is abundant at RiverTowne and 13 holes play along the Wando River and Horlbeck Creek. The rolling fairways feature some dramatic mounding, and the signature Arnold Palmer designed greens are large and challenging. The bunkers are strategically placed and plentiful, forcing many to choose between risk and reward. RiverTowne plays from 5300 to in excess of 7200-yards, and there are five sets of tees to accommodate all skill levels. Come see why Golf Digest awarded RiverTowne CC with 4 1/2 Stars in its 2004-2005 version of Places to Play and calls it “One of Arnie’s Best, With a Teeth-Rattling Test from the Tips, and an Excellent Layout with No Weak Holes.”
Isle of Palms Golf
5881 Palmetto Drive Isle of Palms, SC 29451
Wild Dunes- The Harbor Course
Golf at Wild Dunes is the game devoted players dream about. Before and after they play it. Ranked as ‘Best In The State’ by Golf Digest, both of our 18-hole, championship courses weredesigned by Tom Fazio and offer two distinct and equally exciting approaches to the game you,and we, have a passion for. The Harbor Course challenges a player’s shotmaking and strategic thinking skills with a layout incorporating marshes, lagoons, and a portion of the Intracoastal Waterway. Both courses take dramatic advantage of the unique, natural beauty of the coastal environment and will leave you wanting to come back for more.
Tom Fazio’s first solo design is ranked among the world’s best, year in and year out. With its rolling fairways framed by moss-bearded live oaks and rustling palms, the Links Course is as much a visual bounty as it is a golfing challenge. Noteworthy for massive, humpbacked sand dunes and finishing holes along the Atlantic Ocean, the Links recalls golf’s ancient Scottish heritage.
