Dunes West Golf and River Club

Architect: Aurtur Hills

Description:

Dunes West Golf and River Club, Mount Pleasant, SC 29466

Located minutes away on the site of the historic Lexington Plantation is Charleston’s nationally acclaimed golf facility, Dunes West Golf Club. This Arthur Hills design is a diamond. This par 72, 6871-yard masterpiece is one of the best you will ever play.

Set amid Bermuda-covered dunes and 200-year-old oaks draped in Spanish moss this course blends its historically rich environment with the best golf facilities offered anywhere today. The Dunes West clubhouse, which was built on the site of the antebellum Lexington Plantation, was specifically designed to capture the old southern charm of the Lowcountry. This tremendous course takes full advantage of its fabulous setting.

Dunes West Golf Club is almost as deeply rooted in history as the game itself. There’s no room for an extended history lesson here, but consider this. The land that is today Dunes West was part of a 1696 land grant and from 1712-1827, was owned by the same Vanderhorst family that once owned most all of Kiawah Island. (That’s pronounced Van’ draust, for those of you not from the Lowcountry.) Fast forward to 1930 and the one-time Lexington Plantation was sold to Henrietta Hartford, the widow of Edward V. Hartford and one of the wealthiest women in America. Hartford would marry Prince Guido Pignatelli of Italy in 1937 and the land would come to be known as Pignatelli Plantation, where the princess insisted that a nine-hole course be built, to go along with the saltwater swimming pool, tennis courts, stables, guest house and servants quarters.

We don’t know who designed that first nine-holer, but it’s certain that it bore no resemblance to the Arthur Hills layout that Dunes West golfers enjoy today. Incorporating parts of a land plan designed for the princess by the famed Olmstead firm of New York, Hills created a layout that has been popular with members and guests alike since it opened in 1991. The clubhouse sits on the exact spot the princess’ 32-room mansion occupied and the water hazard that fronts the ninth green was once a more formal reflecting pond that mirrored the home. There’s even an alternate green on the par-4 18th hole built on the site of one of those original nine greens. And the “avenue of oaks” that frames the drive up to the clubhouse, as well as the right side of the 18th fairway was planted by Princess Pignatelli, as well.

Apart from that, Hills created a course that stretches throughout the vast property, cutting broad swaths through once-dense forests to make its way to coastal tidelands and saltwater creeks on both sides of the property – at the fifth hole and again at the 18th, where Toomer Creek laps against the left side of the putting surface.

At Dunes West, it’s clear that Hills was given free rein by developers respectful of the game of golf to create a course that is as intriguing as its history.

Golf school students will delight in the state of art practice facility and short game areasDunes West Golf Club is truly a world-class golf experience. And remember, it’s not whether you win or lose but where you play the game that counts.
