Golf courses at Wild Dunes Resort
The Fazio designed Links Course is the signature course at Wild Dunes. Occasional pot bunkers make an appearance on the undulating fairways and although the greens aren’t overly large, they are home to many slopes and burrows. The finish is fantastic… one of the toughest holes must be the par-3 16th, played alongside the impressive marshland to a tiny green – after which the sea awaits! The 17th and 18th play alongside the Atlantic Ocean, visually stunning and a tough test as you complete your round on the Links.
Renowned for being one of Charleston’s tightest golf courses, the Harbor Course at Wild Dunes Resort is set amongst stunning lagoons, salt marshes and the Intracoastal Waterway. With so much water, this Tom Fazio classic demands great accuracy, and is particularly fun when played off the back tees (6359 yards).

Did you know?
The 18th hole on the Links Course was originally a par-5 when the course was first built in 1980, however battling with the elements for a number of years, erosion, and changing tidal movements took their toll on this piece of the land and it now plays as a challenging par-3.
What is the signature hole at Wild Dunes Resort?
The finish on the Links Course is stunning. 16, 17, 18 must be the signature holes at Wild Dunes. The 16th is a par-3, the teeing area is set in the marshland and you play to a small green with the ocean in the distance. 17 (a par-4) and 18 (a par-3) run along the side of the Atlantic Ocean – a breath-taking finish.
Golf courses at Wild Dunes Resort
One of two great courses at Wild Dunes Resort, the Harbor Course is the tighter of the two and is regarded as one of the tighter layouts around Charleston. This Tom Fazio design runs through stunning lagoons and marshes, making it quite a test to golfers. Although it only measures around 6,300 yards don't let the distance fool you, accuracy is key throughout the course.
The Links Course at Wild Dunes is one of two fantastic tracks that Wild Dunes Resort has to offer. The course is relatively flat being that it is nestled in the marshlands, and even has a few holes that look over the Atlantic. While it may be mostly flat, this course is still a test to many golfers with its undulating fairways and modestly-sized greens. A great option to add on to your Charleston golf trip.
