Home to The Players Amateur (one of the premier amateur events in the country), a 33-acre Golf Practice and Learning Center, and two golf courses by Tom Fazio, Berkeley Hall Club has been a serious golfer’s paradise since it first opened in 2001 on the banks of the Okatie River, just minutes from Hilton Head Island.
The club’s practice area was named a “Top 75 Golf Practice Facility” by Golf Digest and has received high praise from PGA Tour pros, including Billy Andrade. “If you’re into working on your game, Berkeley Hall is the Mecca. It’s a phenomenal facility: the size, attention to detail, it’s beyond belief. Truly the best practice grounds I’ve ever seen,” says Andrade. The club recently invested $4.3 million installing a state-of-the-art drainage system to ensure the finest conditions on the courses through every season.
“While our golf experience is second to none,” says Adrian Morris, Berkeley Hall’s General Manager and COO, “the focus has evolved into the ‘lifestyle of golf,’ which includes everything else our members participate in.” As a result, you’ll find a dynamic emphasis on fitness, social life, and dining—all activities that bring people together at this casually upscale, genuinely friendly community. From kayaking to yoga to 5K races, the growing enthusiasm for health and wellness has produced one of the most vibrant communities in the southeast, says Morris.
That resurgence has been accompanied by one in real estate at this low-density private club of just 554 homes/homesites. A new Premier Builder’s Program showcases custom model homes and makes creating a dream home even easier. And their National Memberships are a great way to get acquainted before buying.
No doubt, though, that golf will always reign supreme at Berkeley Hall. The USGA’s decision to bring the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur here in 2020 is a reminder of what is at the core of this premier golf community.
