Living in Long Cove Club: Amenities, Real Estate and Lifestyle
Welcome to Long Cove Club
Long Cove Club is world-renowned for a Pete Dye designed golf course considered one of the famed course architect’s best. But the 630-acre private golf community offers much more than just golf to the discriminating Hilton Head Island real estate buyer. Amenities such as an 85-slip private deep water marina and a first class tennis center among others suggest Long Cove Club residents’ fun loving, leisurely lifestyle. Lowcountry style single-family homes project upscale elegance in an unpretentious fashion; and offer wooded, Broad Creek waterfront, fairway, and lagoon views to complete a picture that defines the Hilton Head Island lifestyle.
Why You Belong in Long Cove Club
Overlooking the Broad Creek shoreline, Long Cove Club encompasses some of the finest Hilton Head real estate available. Single-family homes nestled amidst a lush maritime forest of pine, moss draped live oak, palmetto and other indigenous flora create a quiet sanctuary from the busy world just outside the gate, but without causing residents to feel disconnected from the rest of the Hilton Head Island community thanks to its location minutes from the Island’s best beaches, dining, entertainment, and shopping as well as professional services, schools, and medical services. Long Cove Club is equally suitable to young, active families and empty nesters, and the demographic mix reflects that. About 70 percent of the residents live there full-time. It is truly a neighborhood community.

Long Cove Club Lifestyle and Amenities
The Long Cove course, a 7,000 yard par 71 track, has long been celebrated as one of course designer Pete Dye’s finest works. Over the years it has received such accolades as:
- Golfweek’s Best Residential Golf Courses (No. 8).
- Golf Digest’s Best Course in the Nation (No. 71).
- Golf and Travel Magazine’s Top 40 Real Estate Courses (No. 2).
Long Cove Club residents enjoy member events and instructional clinics for adults and children, and have the pleasure of calling one of the finest golf courses in the land their home course.
Long Cove Club Tennis Center is a state-of-the-art facility featuring eight Har-Tru courts, a viewing terrace, and pro shop. A year-round schedule of competitive, social, and instructional events keep resident tennis enthusiasts busy and make the Tennis Center a social hub as much as an athletic facility.
Life on the water is a Hilton Head Island lifestyle staple, and a private 85-slip marina on Broad Creek brings that element to Long Cove Club residents like very few private gated communities can. The marina accommodates vessels up to 35 feet in length, but all members – boater or not – enjoy the marina’s docks for fishing, crabbing, kayaking, paddleboarding, or just enjoying the sunset.
The recently renovated and expanded Long Cove Clubhouse serves as the community’s social hub with fine and casual dining, space for functions, locker rooms and a pro shop. The nearby Jr. Olympic sized pool, playground, and the Farm where you can cultivate a personal garden plot also keep Long Cove Club resident’s busy. It is also Hilton Head Island’s only private residential community with its own dog park.
Buying Long Cove Club Real Estate
One of Hilton Head Island’s first and finest private gated communities, Long Cove Club remains so today. While the worldwide golf community continues to recognize the Long Cove course as a superior residential golf course, the community is equally suitable for the non-golf-playing Hilton Head real estate buyer interested in privacy, tranquility, and peace of mind without feeling disconnected from the local community; and all the amenities that one imagines for Hilton Head Island.
