Living in Berkeley Hall: Amenities, Real Estate and Lifestyle
Welcome to Berkeley Hall
Berkeley Hall in Bluffton, South Carolina strives to set the standard for private golf communities as it has done since its inception. Situated on over 900 acres approximately nine miles from Hilton Head Island, the property enjoys nearly two miles of beautiful Okatie River waterfront and two Tom Fazio designed core golf courses. Attention to detail is evident in the exquisitely maintained grounds and a stately 35,000 square foot Jeffersonian style clubhouse that clearly says: “casual elegance.”

Berkeley Hall attracts homeowners looking for resort-quality amenities of a top-flight private golf community in a place that feels like home. About 70 percent of its residents live there full-time so you’ll make friends and neighbors who will be around. And with demographics ranging from retirees to families with children it never feels like a retirement community.

Berkeley Hall Amenities
Unique to Berkeley Hall is the core design of its two Tom Fazio golf courses, meaning that fairway view homes’ property lines aren’t directly adjacent to the golf course and none of the community’s roads run through. The North Course challenges golfers with elevation changes, water and testing bunkers. Fazio himself called it his most dramatic design. The South Course is a classic parklands layout with tree-lined fairways set against a backdrop of the pristine Okatie River. A 30-acre Golf Learning Center provides Berkeley Hall golfers with all the tools they need to simulate and practice virtually any shot imaginable on the North and South Courses.
With stately Jeffersonian architecture and dignified elevations, the 35,000 square foot Berkeley Hall Clubhouse projects the image of casual elegance that is Berkeley Hall’s signature. Hailed as the “next generation of lifestyle amenities,” the Clubhouse offers members six dining options from the lavish Grand Hall to the more casual Mixed Grille or Veranda, or just a perfect setting for getting together with family, friends and neighbors.
Spa & Fitness Center
Berkeley Hall’s 14,500 square-foot Spa & Fitness Center includes an indoor pool, whirlpool, cardiovascular strength equipment, sauna and steam rooms, spa treatment areas, and a coffee and juice bar. And that’s just the inside. Outside are tennis courts, an outdoor pool with private cabanas, a children’s playground, basketball courts, and a sand volleyball court.
River Park and Greenway
Getting out on the water and communing with the natural surroundings are part of what defines the “Lowcountry Lifestyle.” Almost two miles of waterfront on the Okatie River and 10 miles of nature trails winding through the community make Berkeley Hall the perfect place to live it in your own back yard. From the River Park residents cast off on kayaks or Berkeley Hall’s 25-foot pontoon boat into the Okatie River, or fish and crab off the Community Dock. Back on shore, a chain of leisure trails, nature trails, parks and nature exhibits – the Berkeley Hall Greenway – meanders through the property for almost ten miles.
