I have been in the golf resort and community marketing business for over 20 years and during that time; I have had the opportunity to visit some of the most incredible golf communities in the country. One of the nicest communities I have ever had the privilege of visiting is right here in my home town of Charleston SC and that is Daniel Island.
One of my best friends is a member at Daniel Island so I have had the pleasure of not only playing both the Rees Jones and Tom Fazio championship courses on numerous occasions, I have also had the pleasure of experiencing everything else the community has to offer, and believe me, they have a great deal to offer.
This 4,000 acre sea island in known as Charleston’s “island town” and is located just ten minutes from historic downtown Charleston. If you are seeking that upscale private club experience, The Daniel Island Club offers world class golf on their two championship courses that are two of the best courses you will ever play. The rest of the club facilities are incredible with a pool complex that is one of the nicest I have ever visited and a golf clubhouse that is second to none.
The most attractive thing for me when I visit “the island” is the incredible sense of community I feel when I’m there. Even though the property was developed just over a decade ago, you get the feeling that is has been there forever and that everyone has know each other their entire lives. Whether you’re attending a concert, the Family Circle Cup pro tennis tournament, or any of the other events that regularly occur on the island, everyone seems to know everyone giving the feel of a true small town community.
If you are considering relocating your family to the Charleston area, look no further than Daniel Island. This “Low Country “masterpiece is one of the most well planned developments in the country. From championship golf and fine dining, to great schools, shopping, and live entertainment, Daniel Island has it all going on and I would highly recommend you take the time to check it out. If you do, chances are that you will be calling Daniel Island home before long.
