The gated community of Dunes West off Highway 17 North is the quintessential Mount Pleasant golf course neighborhood. Built starting in the 1990s, Dunes West consists of different subsections designed to meet the needs of a varied mix of homeowners from retirees to families with children. There are luxury townhomes, sprawling estates and midsized custom-built homes. The amenities in Dunes West are pretty much unequalled and include a junior Olympic swimming pool with waterslide, clay-court tennis and an expanse of fitness trails. The Dunes West Country Club features an 18-hole Arthur Hill-designed course.
