Wild Dunes Welcome on the Links Course

for Charleston Place Guests



CHARLESTON, SC (September 15, 2009) – As an iconic luxury hotel known for providing well-rounded experiences for even the most discerning of travelers, Charleston Place Hotel by Orient-Express is pleased to announce a new offering for the golf enthusiast guest.  Available now through October 31, 2009, guests can opt to book “The Perfect Golf Excursion” package, with rates starting from $375 per room per night.  While South Carolina is famous for golf retreats, this particular offering presents the best of both worlds – challenging oceanfront golf on the Links Course at Wild Dunes and all the vibrancy of downtown Charleston.


“The Perfect Golf Excursion” includes:

·         Two Nights Luxury Accommodations

·         One round of golf for two at Wild Dune’s famed Links Course with the newly restored oceanfront 18th hole

·         One $50 Food & Beverage Gift Card for use in the Palmetto Cafe, Charleston Grill, Thoroughbred Club, or In-Room Dining


Guests will get into the swing of things at Wild Dunes Links Course, an 18-hole, championship golf course designed by world class golf architect Tom Fazio.  Ranked in the Top 100 by GOLF magazine, the course winds through massive sand dunes and finishes along the Atlantic Ocean. 


After a long day of golf, finding respite at Charleston Place is the perfect wind-down. The hotel evokes the feeling of a grand, 17th century residence, from lush personal suites to the Italian marble lobby with its signature Georgian Open Arm staircase and 12-foot crystal chandelier.  With a Food & Beverage gift card in hand, the Charleston Grill’s contemporary low country cuisine is a must, though guests can also opt to use it in any of the restaurants or from the comfort of their room.


To book, please call 866-259-9480, or for more information, visit


Valid on travel through October 31, 2009 with a two night minimum. Accommodations and tee times subject to availability. Transfers to Wild Dunes are available for a fee.  Food & Beverage Gift Card must be used during your stay at Charleston Place.
