Set 12 miles north of Charleston along unspoiled barrier islands is the seaside beautiful and Tom Fazio-tough Links Course at Wild Dunes. The course, like its sister Harbor layout, is woven through wide expanses of marshland with narrow fairways, dune ridges and water.

In fact, the name Wild Dunes is right on the money. The dunes here have been kept intact and edge in on most of the fairways or dramatically frame greens.

No. 12 on the Links layout is a dramatic par 3 that plays downhill, but the wind can play havoc with a ball struck from the elevated tee, making proper club selection critical.
