This island town and private country club offer a unique setting in Charleston, South Carolina
With sensational golf, an internationally renown tennis center, a spectacular coastal setting, and all the self-sufficiency of a small town, the island town of Daniel Island is the kind of place you would be tempted never to leave.
Except for one thing. It is situated so temptingly close to the charms of downtown Charleston, South Carolina, one of the most enjoyable and hospitable cities anywhere.
Luckily, for those who call Daniel Island home, the pleasures of Charleston are within easy reach. In fact, this award-winning mixed-use, master planned community is located within Charleston, just 15 miles from its historic district and 8 miles from Charleston’s international airport. But with 4,000 acres surrounded by 23 miles of rivers, creeks, and waterways, Daniel Island enjoys a world all its own.
Beautifully integrated with the island’s natural beauty are traditional neighborhoods, community parks, bicycle and walking trails, schools and churches, retail businesses, a library, corporate offices, a private country club, and world-class recreational opportunities. They have done such a wonderful job creating a place to live, work, and play that the community is recognized by the Urban Land Institute as a national model for smart growth.
You are probably familiar with Daniel Island even if you have never visited. Since 2001, the community has been home to the internationally televised Family Circle Cup women’s tennis tournament. The tennis center here is up to the task, with 17 courts that residents use year-round.
Two top-ranked golf courses (Tom Fazio and Rees Jones) are part of the Daniel Island Club and play out of the same clubhouse. Both courses are nationally ranked and both feature incredible views. During the last three years, the PGA Tour’s Q-School chose this private country club as the site of their season-ending championship.
The Daniel Island Club is located within Daniel Island Park, an exclusive golf and country club neighborhood on the northern end of the island. Here, many gracious single-family homes enjoy spectacular golf, marsh and tidal creek views. Construction activity in this neighborhood is strong, with new custom and speculative homes being added to the Lesesne Street area, a growing enclave of golf-and-marsh oriented homes overlooking the Ralston Creek course. New homesites within this area are currently available.
