At Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, our focus has always been “family first.”
For more than a half-century, Palmetto Dunes has stood as one of the premier golfing destinations in the southeast. Which is why we are celebrating Family Golf Month this July by making it easier than ever for families to learn and enjoy the game of golf together.
Named to the top 25 “World’s Best Family Getaways” by Travel + Leisure — along with No. 3 “Best Resort in the South” in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers' Choice Awards — Palmetto Dunes features far more than just our three, world-class golf courses. There is also an 11-mile inland salt-water lagoon system for kayaking and fishing, an award-winning tennis and pickleball center, an outdoor adventure center for bike rentals, canoes, kayaks, fishing and much more.
During these hot, summer months, Palmetto Dunes guests can now escape the heat by heading indoors to On the Mark Archery’s air-conditioned range, located at 5 Trent Jones Lane next to the resort’s Robert Trent Jones clubhouse. The New England-based organization is renowned for its professional mobile archery classes, events and corporate team-building sessions for individuals and groups to enjoy. The entire family will undoubtedly find this activity refreshing and engaging.
And, of course, neighboring Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina is a Mediterranean-style marina featuring shopping and dining, and also home to a wide variety of charters including nature cruises, dolphin tours, sport crabbing and fishing.
Yet, exemplary golf has always been the cornerstone of the Palmetto Dunes Resort family vacation experience. All three of the resort’s golf courses — each one distinctively different and uniquely appealing — have named the South Carolina Golf Course of the Year.
Palmetto Dunes welcomes golfers of all ages and abilities — in other words, every member of your family. The Palmetto Dunes Golf Academy tees up lessons and daily clinics from PGA professionals designed for juniors, seniors and ladies alike, as well as specialized programs such as individual and family lessons and clinics, all under the direction of former PGA Tour player Doug Weaver, Palmetto Dunes’ highly respected Director of Instruction. The golf school includes a video analysis sent by email, on-course instruction, rules and etiquette lessons, the school’s video lending library, take-home materials, free range privileges, plus nine holes of golf daily on a space-available basis.
Weaver heads a staff of outstanding PGA Class A professionalsaveraging almost two decades of instruction, who provide hands-on instruction to golfers with proficiency and expertise.
