Dunes West Golf Club is the perfect marriage of rich history and exquisite golf facilities. It has also witnessed the marriage of so many hearts as it is not only a favorite golf vacation destination but of wedding ceremonies and receptions as well. Located in Charleston County, South Carolina, Dunes West was the site of the historic Lexington Plantation. Long before it became a golf trip fantasy, history has it that it was once owned by a royal Italian couple, Prince and Princess Guido Pignatelli in the 1930s.
Today, Dunes West stands amidst 200-year old oaks on Spanish moss and carpeted with endless acres of well maintained Bermuda grass – offering the best golf trips. Designed by Arthur Hills, the Dunes West Golf Club is a par-72 18-hole, 6,871 yards of great rounds of golf and the perfect golf vacation escape. The place offer only the best kind of golf facilities and that perfect touch of Southern hospitality – which makes every golf trip a delightful experience both to look back and look forward to.
The Dunes West Golf Club is also every golfer’s must try golf vacation escapade. It has, surprisingly, very few bunkers for a golf club of its caliber. But this and its verdant tree-lined freeways are as tricky as they seem harmless and should not be taken lightheartedly. They pose more threat than they seem. The greens are equally unpredictable, though undulated and fairly fast. These qualities of this well-loved golf trip destination and its old South, Lowcountry charm has earned it its reputation and hordes of awards to its name. It was named one of the “Top 10 New Resort Courses” both by Golf Digest and Golf Week when it opened in 1991. And in 2009, Dunes West was cited by the Charleston Golf Club Owners Association as the Golf Course of the Year. Perhaps the best attribute of the Dunes West is what is written in its rich past that makes for its colorful future, making it one of the best Golf Courses and Resorts in the country today.
