Featured Community: Shipyard

Shipyard Plantation is located on the south end of Hilton Head Island and is one of the island’s first developments.  This is an 800 acre gated community of ocean-oriented homes and villas where amenities abound.  Although there are no Oceanfront villas or homes, the beach and beach parking is easily accessible through the Shipyard Beach Club.  The Beach Club has been recently renovated, has kitchen facilities and is available for residents to rent.

Tennis is very popular here and the Van Der Meer Tennis Resort, known for its world famous teaching facilities has 20 outdoor and 3 covered tennis courts nestled among magnificent oaks and beautifully landscaped grounds.   It has been ranked by Tennis Magazine as one of their “50 Greatest Tennis Resorts in America.” A little history: Billie Jean King was the touring pro here in 1974 when the racquet club was built.  Her coach, Dennis Van Der Meer, purchased it over 20 years ago and enhanced it to its level today.  Clinics, drill sessions and round robbins are regularly scheduled. Many vacation villas here include tennis packages with court time.

There are three 9-hole golf courses which are semi-private and open to the public.  The Shipyard Golf Course has hosted the Senior PGA Tour 3 times and is one of the busiest on the island.  Each development within the plantation has its own pool, there are miles of leisure trails for walking, biking or jogging and the many fresh water lagoons are stocked for fishing.  The Crowne Plaza Resort is the flagship of Shipyard Plantation.  It is located on the ocean, near the beach club and has a health center, swimming pool, meeting rooms and an outdoor pavilion for special events.  It also offers fine dining as well as casual fare.  There is a playground and Camp Castaway, an adventure camp for children ages 3-12.

Indigo Run

This week we would love to tell you a little about a gated residential community named Indigo Run. The community is located in the heart of Hilton Head Island, and is the last residential community to be developed on the Island. There are approximately 820 homes situated across 1,400 scenic acres.

What makes Indigo Run so desirable? Simply put, there is something for everyone. Residents have quick access to shopping, schools, entertainment and medical services. There is the Golden Bear, The Golf Club, The River Club, Broad Pointe, and Berwick Green. Residents have a variety of lifestyles and views from their home, including deep water, golf, and lagoon, to wooded homesites.

Here is a little more detail for you:

– The Golden Bear is named after the first collaborative Nicklaus/Nicklaus, father/s on golf course. It encompasses Sunningdale Park with its pool and pool house, playground and tennis courts (clay and hard, some lighted).

– Indigo Run residents have use of the Indigo Hall Community Club for various functions. The golf course is open to the public.

– Berwick Green is a town home community within the Golden Bear. The Golf Club is a separate gated, private golf club community within Indigo Run, with its own Fitness Center and Clubhouse.

– The River Club and Broad Pointe are located out the back gate of Indigo Run off Marshland Rd. and boast many deep-water home sites, some with their own private docks. Each area has its own pool facility and tennis courts for their residents.

Now, if these quick facts pike your interest and you think it all sounds pretty good, feel free to contact us for more information or a private tour. Alternatively, you can search current properties for sale here.

Sea Pines Plantation

Sea Pines was the original planned development on Hilton Head Island, and became the model for those that followed. Charles Fraser founded the “Grandfather” of Island-Plantations in 1956. For most the candy striped lighthouse in Harbour Town has come to symbolize Hilton Head Island. Sea Pines Resort has won several awards, which you can view here.

Sea Pines Plantation is set on 5,200 naturally beautiful acres and is located on the southern end of Hilton Head Island. Almost 1300 of these acres are devoted to parks, forest preserves, lagoons and marshlands. Sea Pines is also home to the Heritage, a popular tournament on the PGA tour.

We recently were informed of several exciting pieces of news about the plantation, including:

– The new clubhouse at Plantation Golf Club is now open (read more here).

– The Sea Pines Beach Club is scheduled to be completed by Memorial Day. See a virtual tour here.

– The Harbour Town Golf Links Clubhouse & Conference Center is under construction and expected to be completed prior to 2015 RBC Heritage Golf Tournament.
