One of Mount Pleasant’s older golf communities, Charleston National features high-quality luxury real estate and pristine views of the Intracoastal Waterway’s marshes and tidal creeks. Built beginning in 1987, the community is located in Upper Mt. Pleasant across Highway 17 from the Park West neighborhood and the Mt. Pleasant Hospital. Much of the real estate in Charleston National overlooks the golf course or wetland areas. Some homes backup to heavily wooded areas for added privacy. The diversity of homes in the neighborhood is significant, with most built in the late 1980s through the mid-1990s. Most recently, new-construction townhomes overlooking the golf course have been erected. The townhomes feature high-end details for an exceptionally reasonable price point.
Designed by Rees Jones, the semi-private 18-hole championship golf course seamlessly meanders through the natural beauty of the landscape. First designed as an exclusive private country club and later established as a semi-private green, Charleston National is the only Rees Jones course in Charleston that offers public access. The club’s fee schedule is quite reasonable with prices ranging from around $25 to $95 depending on the season, time of week, time of day and number of holes you play. Frequent golfers can purchase a VIP Membership for even better rates. Golf carts are provided at no additional cost, and rental clubs are available. Other club amenities include a driving range and golf instruction, a pro shop and a pub and tennis and swimming facilities.
