There are just certain things that everyone seems to do when they vacation on the Isle of Palms. Obviously, going to the beach ranks right up there at the top. Dining at a fabulous Charleston restaurant at least once. Shopping in on King Street. Touring a plantation. Very often, families who stay with us will have at least a couple of golfers in the group. We have even had off season bookings with groups specifically coming to golf.
I thought it might be helpful to provide some information about local golf courses.
Golf on the Island:
By far, the best known courses are those in Wild Dunes. There are two courses there.
