Hey WRXers, headed down to Charleston in December for a best friend's wedding and wanted to get some thoughts on courses to play (probably will be able to get 2 to 3 rounds in). Been to the area once previously on a road trip with the lady but didn't play. More interested in reasonably priced tracks or "value courses" based on their prices. Rarely do I spend more than $100 on a round (so not interested in the Kiawah courses at the moment). Here's where I'm looking, let me know your thoughts, opinions, etc. What's worth it for the price and what is overrated, what else should I look at? Thanks

1) Wild Dunes (Links/Harbor Courses)
2) Patriots Point
3) Charleston National
4) Links at Stono Ferry
5) Wescott Plantation
6) Coosaw Creek
7) Shadowmoss Plantation
8) RiverTowne CC

Also, if anybody can get me on Bulls Bay (or know how I could try to get on) I'd owe a huge solid!

I played Wild Dunes last March and it was great. We played the Links course. I remember it being around $160 though.

Yeah I haven't decided yet whether I want to fork out that much for either of the Wild Dunes courses (though I think the Harbor course is a little cheaper than the Links but still $100-$150). Much appreciated though!

I didnít love Wild Dunes all that much. From what I remember Charleston National is one of the better public access along with Stono Ferry. Sadly nothing public in Charleston is all that good.

Is Rivertowne still around? If so Iíd hit that.

Also might want to look at Dunes West. Heard itís ok.

Agree with above.  Public options in Charleston are a overpriced for for what you can get.  You have 1) rock bottom municourse for cheap then you have a 2) middle level of OK/pretty good public courses / but all way overpriced, then you have 3) resort courses which are great but not an everyday kind of thing at $150-350.  Not a whole lot of fairly priced midddle level courses. If you are looking for value and conditions are somewhat important (especially greens), I would look to some courses in North Charleston and Summerville-  Wescott , Crowfield, Lengend Oaks.

Agree, harbor is not too much fun unless you are a single digit hcp maybe.  TIGHT- really think they built houses first then realized they could squeeze in a course.  Links is fun though, not sure the rack rate but I usually play a few times/year on some local deal or invite.  I enjoy it.

This is pretty spot on haha. Many locals like the harbor course much more than the links which is funny. I like both. They each have their fun and both have deficiencies.

In December most courses are cheaper although condition can be hit or miss depending on weather. For the most part they should be fine though. If I am still there working part time and you need a fourth, I can get you on at wild dunes for pretty cheap. Stono is great but itís a hike (well worth it IMO).

Harbor course had tiny greens. Played with a member off here and forgot how small the greens were. Tips were less than 6500. Course conditions were fantastic though for the winter.

Crowfield conditions yesterday were solid. It will be a hike though. Forgot home undulating the greens were.

Papa Johick, there's a very good chance it'll just be me as a single so if you're available it'd be fun to swing it. I'm thinking either course at Wild Dunes, Stono Ferry, or maybe Charleston National. Probably playing 12/7 and either 12/8, 12/10 or 12/11 (most likely only 2 golf days total).

I disagree with the other statements about the wild dunes harbor course not being fun.  I played in Feb of this year and it was in great shape and cost roughly $60 due to the time of year.  It is tight as others have mentioned but it is also very short which makes for some great risk/reward tee shots.  They do not have a driving range at that facility (only at links course) so keep that in mind.  We also played rivertowne which was in terrible shape (fariways were awful and greens had some spots) so I would recommending passing on that.  If conditions improved I thought that was also a fun layout that had some challenging holes.  Enjoy your trip!

I just played Legend Oaks a couple weeks ago. I thought it was decent. It's target golf, I used driver only 5 times all day and I probably could have gotten away with a couple less.

It was dry, and the greens were running close to an 11. I enjoyed it.

You can play the links course for $70-80 if you book a hot deal on teeoff.com. Iíd play links and stono ferry. Dunes west is decent too. Never played rivertowne, thatís on my to do list

my folks use to live at charleston national so i played there frequently over a decade.  highly recommend that course.  variety of holes and you will use the full bag.  i am partial to the course as well as it is where i shot my lowest round ever.

river towne patriots point is a real fun course and always in good condition.

edit - not sure why i wrote patriots point, maybe because it was in the last post.  i meant river towne in mt pleasant.

patriots point is okay.  my experiences have been on the poor side as 2 of the 4 times i played there the sprinklers were running on the hole i was playing and after waiting a while i just had to pick up and move on (and get a little wet)

Chas National is always great, albeit a little overpriced IMO (as are most Chas courses) for what you get.  Patriots Pt is super convenient and views are fantastic of harbor- but course wise, mostly unremarkable- layout is meh and conditioning is hit or miss in last few years and overall you can tell ownership have skimped on conditioning budget.  Locally, I think a lot of folks kind of consider it the tourist trap of golf courses- overpriced and not that great but you can see the harbor and it has an ďisland green ď(17) , so people eat it up.

patriots point was a mistype on my part.

i keep seeing people say over priced so i went to check prices of some of the places - WOW!!!!!  charleston golf just got a high opinion of itself.  Unfortunately i haven't been to the area in a few years to play, but i don't know that some of these courses are worth the price.

Exactly- we have the Muni for cheap (but always packed Andrew greens are slowest Iíve ever seen anywhere ), then you have high end resort Kiawah/seabriok/wild dunes.  Every thing in the middle is average courses with average condition for $75+ .  Only real value rack rate Iíve found is legend oaks and wescott.  Conditioning same as other mid levels but prices are fair.

Agree with above. Only way to play golf on a somewhat of a budget here is to become a vip member at charleston National and to buy the booklet.

Hey WRXers, headed down to Charleston in December for a best friend's wedding and wanted to get some thoughts on courses to play (probably will be able to get 2 to 3 rounds in). Been to the area once previously on a road trip with the lady but didn't play. More interested in reasonably priced tracks or "value courses" based on their prices. Rarely do I spend more than $100 on a round (so not interested in the Kiawah courses at the moment). Here's where I'm looking, let me know your thoughts, opinions, etc. What's worth it for the price and what is overrated, what else should I look at? Thanks

1) Wild Dunes (Links/Harbor Courses)
2) Patriots Point
3) Charleston National
4) Links at Stono Ferry
5) Wescott Plantation
6) Coosaw Creek
7) Shadowmoss Plantation
8) RiverTowne CC

Also, if anybody can get me on Bulls Bay (or know how I could try to get on) I'd owe a huge solid!

I used to be stationed down there (former Navy nuke) and I will be heading back in August for vacation with the girlfriend.  I always wanted to play Patriots Point but never did since I just started golfing and couldn't justify the greens fee for my skill level.  Now that I'm better at golf (and make more money) I'm going to take the opportunity to play it.  I'll update in a few months to let you know if it was worth it or not.

Charleston National is ok, and scenic. But is  pretty much target golf all through the marsh, and a couple of holes are just plain dumb. You land 10 yards off the fairway and get too harshly penalized. Plan for lost balls unless you are very consistent and choose the right club. Probably only 8-9 driver holes. #3 out there is just dumb IMO.

Agreed! Is usually in decent shape but definitely not my favorite course for exactly those reasons.
