“Great facility with many clay courts”

Facility is maintained in pristine shape and we enjoyed playing tennis there. Only drawback is its a bit pricey ($30/hr).

Thank you for your feedback. We are really glad to hear that you enjoyed our courts and our tennis facility. We do pride ourselves on our court conditions and work year-round to keep them in pristine shape for our guests. Just a few suggestions on how you can save on court times: If you book your rental unit through Palmetto Dunes, you'll receive 2 hours of free court time per day. This applies year-round on all home or villa bookings. Also, if you are not staying with Palmetto Dunes, we have a special walk-on rate of $20 between the hours of 12 - 4 pm. There is not a guaranteed court time as it applies to walk-on only, but it would be a way to save $10 perhaps next time you're visiting. We hope to see you again soon and that you'll be able to take advantage of some of our savings options next time.

“Best place to play tennis on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

Plenty of Courts and people to hit with. Lots of clinic's and they have both clay and hard courts. Do not have to pay a fee to get into Palmetto Dunes Tennis like Sea Pines. There clubhouse also sells tennis clothing.

“An abundance of tennis courts at Palmetto Dunes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

There are lots of tennis courts at Palmetto Dunes but there are also lots of crowds too. Keeping up with the maintenance of courts is also an issue. As a local I think there are a number of other tennis centers on the island that are better maintained, not as crowded and in a prettier setting.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent experience at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center. We apologize that our facility did not exceed your expectations. As we are located in a resort and host daily lessons, clinics and round robins plus many tournaments throughout the year, we do generally stay busy as opposed to other private tennis facilities on the island. We encourage you to please call our Director of Tennis, John Kerr, at 843-785-1152 so we can gather more specifics such as the date and time you played as well as any other details. This well help us to better pinpoint issues so we can improve the playing experience for all of our guests. Thank you again and we hope to hear from you soon.

“Great staff, beautiful courts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

We were there for a Road Scholar tennis clinic and although the weather was lousy, our instructors (Hank, Glen and Scotty) made the most of it. We learned a lot and recommend them highly.

“Tweeked my backhand in a good way.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Took clinics from both Glenn and Scotty. Glenn helped me get additional pace on my backhand (that I'm still working on) and we picked-up great doubles strategy pointers from Scotty. Allways fun to play at Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center.
