Berkeley Hall Amenities
Unique to Berkeley Hall is the core design of its two Tom Fazio golf courses. Unlike other golf-centric communities, the property lines of homes in Berkeley Hall with fairway views aren’t directly adjacent to the golf course. Additionally, none of the community’s roads run through either of the 18-hole courses. The North Course challenges golfers with elevation changes, water and testing bunkers. Mr. Fazio himself called it his most dramatic design and was given carte blanche by Berkeley Hall’s developers to design the course his way. The South Course is a classic parklands layout with tree-lined fairways set against a backdrop of the pristine Okatie River. A 30-acre, state-of-the-art Golf Learning Center includes four hitting bays, a “super bay” offering the latest analytics technology, mobile canopies for 4-season use, four full-size practice greens, indoor putting area and short game complex. The center is so robust that PGA players have ranked it among the worlds finest.
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. The picture-perfect clubhouse is the perfect setting for gatherings of all types including both laid-back and formal affairs.
Spa & Fitness Center

Outside, residents avail themselves of 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 savoring the stunning natural surroundings are part of what defines the much sought after “Lowcountry Lifestyle.” Berkeley Hall offers residents almost two miles of waterfront on the Okatie River and 10 miles of winding nature trails throughout the community. From River Park, residents frequently cast off on kayaks or Berkeley Hall’s own 25-foot pontoon boat into the Okatie River to spot dolphin, or fish and crab off the Community Dock (using complimentary fishing gear). Back on shore, the Berkeley Hall Greenway – a chain of leisure trails, nature trails, parks, and nature exhibits – meanders through the property for almost ten miles.
