Golf Communities in Charleston, South Carolina

Golf Communities in Charleston, SC

golf community in charleston sc

With so many nationally ranked golf courses in Charleston, golf is a huge attraction for residents and visitors alike. Some of the best golf courses are located in Mt. Pleasant and Kiawah Island, but you’ll find plenty of options throughout the tri-county area. Total, Charleston boasts 22 public and private courses and 13 golf course communities. Most golf courses in Charleston are open to the public and don’t require you to live in the golf community to play. However, there are a few courses on which you can only play by proof of residence or by invitation from a resident.

If you’re looking for resort-style living in a golf community, Wild Dunes Resort, Seabrook Island, and Kiawah Island would be good areas to start your real estate search. These areas have multiple golf courses (some of which are beachfront), and they offer some of the finest amenities in all of Charleston.

Mount Pleasant is also home to four nice golfing communities: Dunes West (pictured left), Charleston National, Rivertowne Country Club, Snee Farm. On James Island, Country Club is adjacent to the Country Club of Charleston, and it’s considered the only golfing community on the island. Kiawah River Estates is the only Johns Island golf community, and its Oak Point Golf Course is owned by Kiawah Island Resort. Daniel Island (pictured above) is set up a little differently in that residents from any of its communities can become members of its prestigious golf club.

More affordable options for living in a Charleston golf course community are Shadowmoss Plantation in West Ashley, Coosaw Creek in North Charleston, and Crowfield Plantation in Goose Creek. Also, Summerville has Legend Oaks Plantation as well as Wescott Plantation. The last option for Charleston golfing communities is Stono Ferry in Rural West Ashley, which is by far the most rural area of Charleston with a golf course.
