Private. Golf-oriented. Exclusive.
Long Cove Club has forever been one of Hilton Head’s best-kept-secrets as a residential community – seemingly by design.
This south-end, gated, club-community filled with spectacular trees and lush landscaping is complemented with picturesque homes of understated southern-architecture, matched only by the charm and enthusiasm of its residents. Positioned with an unassuming entrance drive off Hwy 278 just 1 mile from the Sea Pines Circle, Long Cove is replete of any commercial, public attractions resulting in exclusive access by residents and guests, since its inception.
Award winning Pete Dye Golf Course that is heralded as the best track on the Island. Named #2 of the Top 40 Real Estate Golf Courses by Golf & Travel Magazine; Long Cove has been pegged as a paradise for golfers seeking a private, club environment where the game of golf is highly-elevated in both stature and appeal.
That’s not nearly the whole story of Long Cove – the property owners association is setting out to share the rest of the story about what makes this robust community so inviting and compelling to a wide array of would-be residents (and not just golfers!)…
One of the best surprises about Long Cove is its water-frontage along Hilton Head’s central body of water – Broad Creek. With water-frontage comes water-access – in a BIG way! Long Cove features a superb, deep-water marina that was renovated with all-new docks just a handful of years ago. Owners enjoy free dockage for their private boats, offering access to the Calibogue Sound and Atlantic Ocean just minutes away. For a more serene, easy-paced way to enjoy the tidal waters of Broad Creek, Long Cove has a fleet of kayaks standing at the ready for owners and their guests to hop aboard at their convenience, as part of the many included amenities
But wait…there’s more… The tennis facility at Long Cove is outstanding, and plays host to the Island’s pro-tournament each year. Organized matches, club-teams, and pick-up games all keep this wonderful amenity full of competition and entertainment, while the nearby pool is the ultimate place to recount the up’s and down’s of any given match.
For the green-thumbs, Long Cove offers a conveniently-located garden with individual plots filled with a full array of vegetables, flowers and herbs. This picturesque setting is just one of many vistas along the 3-mile loop that serves as an ideal running, biking path around the community.
And, of course, the handsome-brick-exterior, newly-renovated clubhouse is the centerpiece of outstanding dining, social events and gatherings. This heart of the community is where members and guests come together to connect across many different levels of shared-interest, including a wide variety of social clubs/groups that make Long Cove Club a tight-knit community.
It might also be surprising to learn about the depth and width of real estate offerings in Long Cove Club. Lots can be purchased for under $100,000, while spectacular waterfront homes are available in the relatively-modest-$2MM range.
