In 1690, Charleston was the fifth-largest city in the U.S. Today it’s just a comfortable size, with a wonderfully preserved historic district and an ambience of Southern charm. In fact, it’s a many-time winner of an award as America’s ‘best-mannered’ city. Today, Charleston is also known for its proximity to some of the world’s greatest golf resorts, including Kiawah Island and Wild Dunes Resort. Kiawah has been named the #1 Golf Resort in the U.S. and boasts five courses, including the Ocean Course, soon to host the PGA Championships.

The five-diamond hotel known as The Sanctuary offers a once-in-a-lifetime golf holiday, for families or groups. Wild Dunes Resort, just a few miles from downtown Charleston is another special place. The Links Course was Tom Fazio’s first design, and the Harbour Course, where fairways border salt marshes and the IntraCoastal Waterway, is another Fazio creation.
