Daniel Island is a 4,000-acre island town located within historic Charleston, South Carolina. Here in this spectacular Lowcountry setting, surrounded by 23 miles of rivers and creeks, traditional neighborhoods feature southern style architecture, sidewalks and street trees. Hundreds of acres of parks provide gathering places for family and friends alike. A downtown is home to shops, restaurants, schools and churches. And recreational options abound. The private Daniel Island Club is home to two remarkable courses designed by golf’s leading traditional architectsTom Fazio and Rees Jones. The Family Circle Tennis Center, home of the Family Circle Cup professional tennis tournament, features 17 courts in a waterfront park setting. A state-of-the-art soccer stadium is home to Charleston’s professional soccer team. And over 12 miles of leisure trails, perfect for walking, bicycling and jogging, meander throughout the island. With all this right on the island and Charleston’s shopping, dining, culture and spectacular beaches just minutes away Daniel Island offers a truly remarkable lifestyle.
Distinctive Homes & Homesites
Daniel Island’s residential neighborhoods offer a wide range of real estate opportunities. Single-family homes and townhomes feature southern-style architecture with front porches, screened porches and other details designed to maximize outdoor living opportunities and the Lowcountry lifestyle. In the island’s downtown, condominiums provide an option for those seeking a more urban setting. And in Daniel Island Park, the island’s golf and country club neighborhood, gracious custom homes, townhomes and condominiums enjoy a spectacular setting, many offering views of the golf courses, marsh and creeks. Homesites are also available in this neighborhood. Island-wide, prices range from the $400,000s to $6 million for single-family homes, from the $300,000s for townhomes, from the $200,000s for condominiums and from the $300,000s to over $1 million for homesites in Daniel Island Park.
Rees Jones and Tom Fazio, golf’s leading traditional designers, have come together here in Charleston’s island town to create two remarkable private club courses. Each provides an extraordinary example of the designers’ lifelong respect and passion for the heritage of the game. Together, they create Charleston’s only 36-hole private country club community.
Fazio’s Beresford Creek course is a par-72 layout with undulating greens and large moss-draped live oaks that provide a park-like setting and incredible views from almost any position. Jones’ Ralston Creek course is just as spectacular, and has received numerous accolades, including a spot on Golf Digest’s list of the country’s top ten “Best New Private” courses.
Members enjoy this remarkable choice of world-class courses, as well as preferred access to the Ron Cerrudo Golf Learning Center. Here, players of all skill levels can learn more about and dramatically improve their game. And no matter which finishing hole they come off of -- Fazio’s or Jones’ -- members find themselves back at the Daniel Island Club’s gracious clubhouse, the perfect spot for a post-round beverage or delicious bite to eat.
