CHARLESTON, SC – Travel +Leisure Golf has again named Daniel Island one of “America’s Top 100 Golf Communities,” as announced in the magazine’s January/February issue. During an extensive review process, editors evaluated several hundred golf communities across the country according to location, range of amenities and standard-setting service.
“These one hundred exquisite environments are case studies in how to make life on earth as pleasing, stimulating and worthwhile as possible,” states the introduction to the article. “They have sited themselves within the finest natural surroundings one could wish for, and added all the comforts of home.”
Conceived more than ten years ago, Daniel Island’s award-winning master plan incorporates nationally-ranked golf courses by Tom Fazio and Rees Jones within an extraordinary island town setting offering shops, restaurants, schools, churches, parks, trails and more. Located within the historic city of Charleston, South Carolina, Daniel Island provides residents with a unique lifestyle that is difficult to find elsewhere.
The Daniel Island Club is the recreational centerpiece of the island’s golf-oriented neighborhood, Daniel Island Park. It is the nation’s only club with private courses by Tom Fazio and Rees Jones — widely recognized as the game’s top traditional designers — that play on the same property. Members and their guests also enjoy a state-of-the-art golf learning center, comprehensive practice facility, spectacular golf clubhouse and outstanding swim, tennis and fitness facilities.
