As the second of two major golf vacation courses designed by Tom Fazio, the Wild Dunes Resort-Links Course has placed as the most renowned golf course in the world, especially with its eminent sand dunes, breathtaking views, and culminating holes that seem strategically positioned near the Atlantic Ocean. After given the chance to solely create this layout, Fazio made sure that he establishes credibility by putting together a design that integrates the natural challenge of the wind from the ocean, with the narrow fairways, intimate landing areas and elevated greens of the course. Here, golfers can truly test the sharpness of their club and the science of their skills on the immensity of the dunes, profoundness of the bunkers and the overall stretch.
Opened in 1980, this 18-hole Wild Dunes Resort-Links Course is located in Isle of Palms, South Carolina and plays 6,722 yards, starting from the points of a par 72. This golf trip destination has a rating of 72.7 with a slope of 131. As part of the Wild Dunes Resort community, this course is coddled in the lush barrier, which is 30 minutes away from the historic Charleston. Private areas include 1,600 acres of land that extends to the Atlantic, on one side, and to the Intercoastal Waterway, on the other side.
Wild Dunes Resort-Links Course also offers other interesting amenities including a cool tennis club, relaxing spa treatments, and a wide range of restaurant choices. Having biking and walking paths make this resort shuttle-ready and allow guest to take a break from driving behind the wheels of their cars. That makes it more enjoyable to witness the Isle of Palms nature exhibit with green portals that trails to the only Blue Wave Beach designated by the Clean Beach Council. Truly a must-try golf vacation destination.
