An Afternoon at Wild Dunes

As many of y'all know, golf has always been my passion.  To be honest, it's what gave Mike and I the opportunity to move down to Charleston to continue my career in a place where I can play golf all 12 months of the year.  Blogging has brought a lot of fun opportunities into my life, and getting to play new courses is definitely one of them.  Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms, one of Charleston's barrier islands, has beautiful accommodations, award-winning dining, and tons of outdoor activities including tennis, bike riding, paddle boarding, kayaking, and, of course, golf.  The resort offers two courses: the Harbor Course and the Links Course

Last weekend, Mike and I played the Links Course on a beautifully sunny (and hot!) day.  The Links Course hosts the practice facilities for both courses at the resort, including an irons-only driving range and practice green.

I was impressed with the variety of views and different scenery on each hole.  Being in the Lowcountry, you expect the salt marshes, turtles, birds, and palmettos we saw on the front nine, but making the turn onto the tenth hole, there was a surprising elevation changes that created beautiful views of the island from all angles. 
The course is located on the northeast tip of Isle of Palms, so the seventeenth and eighteenth holes have amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean.
After we finished golf, we headed upstairs, through the clubhouse, into Huey's Southern Eats for a late lunch.  Named after an infamous goose on the island, Huey's cooks up delicious Southern staples and has a full bar.  Of course, we started with a couple of beers (they have a great local selection) and an order of hushpuppies.  Mike ordered a Huey's burger, and I tried the Huey's chopped salad with local fruit and a delicious Firefly Moonshine dressing.  Did I mention that they also have a full dessert menu?  After the couple next to us ordered the peanut butter pie, I obviously had to try it.  Not much of a peanut butter + chocolate fan, Mike finished his meal with a chocolate milkshake.  We were very happy with all of our food selections, and even if you're not golfing but find yourself at Wild Dunes, Huey's is definitely worth a stop!
Last summer, Mike and I played the other Wild Dunes course, the Harbor Course, and if you're a local, this is the place to be.  Wild Dunes offers a new “Friends of the Harbor” program to residents of Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley counties.  Friends of the Harbor is a VIP pass that offers golfers 18-hole rounds for just $44 each, all year long.  The annual membership is only $30 and also includes monthly offers and 50% off every fifth round!  The Harbor Course is definitely a challenging design with narrow fairways and water coming into play on almost every hole.  The back nine is even situated right along the Intracoastal Waterway.  Head over to my Instagram page to enter to win a free Friends of the Harbor membership!
