Nestled along the banks of Wagner Creek and the Wando River, Dunes West Golf & Country Club stretches across 6,871 yards of Carolina Lowcountry sculpted into an 18-hole layout designed by architect Arthur Hills. After traversing rolling terrain, quicksand bunkers, and oversize greens, golfers can conclude the par 72 layout at the 456-yard, par 4 18th hole, where Wagner Creek guards the entire left side of a shallow green that reveals the clubhouse's brick arches and second-story veranda just beyond the fringe. Golfers with slice-prone swings can make adjustments at the club’s driving range or schedule a lesson with one of the club’s PGA professionals, both more feasible than trying to control drives with telekinesis.

At Charleston National Golf Club, course architect Rees Jones found a new muse in the varied, natural terrain of the Intracoastal Waterway. The famous channel runs right along the 7,046-yard course, putting water hazards in play on five holes and marshland on several others, making it critical for golfers to execute accurate shots or attach dog tags to their golf balls so they can find their way home. Pine and oak trees roam the rough throughout the course, adding even more obstacles apart from the numerous bunkers and ponds.
Before digging their tee or antique rail spike into the dirt for the first hole, golfers can warm up at the Club's driving range. The all-grass practice area also serves as the training ground for lessons, clinics, and golf camps conducted by Scott's World of Golf.

Instead of shying away from the dark, GloZone revels in it, inviting guests to dart through shadows during laser tag or putt their way through a nine-hole glow-in-the-dark miniature-golf course. In the murky depths of the laser-tag arena, players attempt to score points by tagging targets with a hand-held device to the added ambiance of music, blacklights and fog. Laser-tag is ideal for birthday parties, group outings, or fundraising events.
Black lights illuminate the nine-hole mini-golf course with its own unique sea theme, as golfers putt their balls over contoured surfaces allowing players a change to hone their skills on the mini-golf course. The facility also offers a lazer maze, where guests must avoid a dancing array of laser light trip-wires as if they were in a spy movie. Nearby, bumper cars invite adventure driving, and arcade games and air hockey entice guests to rack up high scores. In addition to its open-play times, GloZone hosts parties for kids celebrating the anniversary of their safe delivery via stork.
