We’ve heard rumblings about temperatures falling into the 40s over the next few nights, and that doesn’t bode well for those hoping to maximize their golf activities. The Carolinas are SCblogwilddunes2.jpgsufficiently south of here that the game is playable well into late fall, and a couple of South Carolina resorts are offering deals specifically for women foursomes.
Wild Dunes Resort is 20 minutes from downtown Charleston, a lovely city worthy of a standalone trip. The resort itself is on the Isle of Palms and has two standout golf courses. Its “Putt and Pamper” package includes three nights’ accommodations, one round of golf on each of the Links and Harbor courses, breakfast daily, a 50-minute massage per person, and a Burt’s Bees gift basket for $164 per person per night, based on four people staying. Visit the Wild Dunes website or call 843-886-2255 to learn more about other custom packages such as golf and fishing, unlimited golf, golf/tennis, and the “Dudes on the Dunes” guys’ getaway, which includes the obligatory post-golf poker, beer, and snacks.
The Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island, near Savannah, Ga., is offering the Girlfriends’ Golf Getaway package, which includes four days and three nights for four in a resort villa, two rounds of golf at your choice of three championship courses, court time at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, a massage, and a one-day bike rental to explore the beach and resort. The package starts at $189 per person per night and is valid through November. Go to the resort website or call 800-827-3006 for more information.
