Dataw Island Named One of America's Top 100 Golf Communities By Travel + Leisure Golf Magazine

Representatives of Dataw Island today announced that Dataw Island was recognized by Travel + Leisure Golf magazine as one of 'America's Top 100 Golf Communities' in the publication's January 2009 edition. Dataw Island was one of only 13 South Carolina communities awarded this distinction by the publication. 

The selection process by Travel + Leisure Golf editors included: cost; amenities; master-planning of communities; and location. Dataw Island was chosen due to the community's affordable, unique mix of golf, activism, topography and other amenities. This is the first time Dataw Island has been recognized by the publication. 

"We're honored to be recognized by Travel + Leisure Golf as one of 'America's Top 100 Golf Communities' and feel it reflects our dedication to providing a unique, amenity-rich community for our members and residents," said Ted Bartlett, General Manager of Dataw Island Club. "As we move forward, it is our goal to continue to expand on this award by providing one of the best lifestyle options available to prospective golf community residents."


As one of South Carolina’s premier golf communities, the Dataw Island Club is home to two 18-hole golf courses. Tom Fazio’s Cotton Dike course and Arthur Hills’ Morgan River course ensure a challenge for golfers of all abilities. As part of their commitment to quality, the club invested in renovations to both courses in 2011 and 2012. These are regarded as some of the best in the Lowcountry.

The Dataw Island golf professionals are highly qualified and take pride in their work. Offerings include group and private lessons and clinics. A wide variety of tournaments are held throughout the year and are suited to include everyone from the novice to the expert golfer.

The pro shop offers the latest in clothing and equipment. Or, if you need to warm up before a community tournament, the practice range is open 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Our golf professionals can be reached at 843-838-8250 during pro shop hours.
