Picture a place so peaceful, so scenic, and yet so full of life it not only draws you back year after but also seems to seep into your very soul. The natural beauty of the Lowcountry is as legendary as its gentle climate, breathtaking beaches, and the treasures of its historic coastal towns. The pace of life is slower in the Lowcountry. People are warm, friendly and easy to know. For many, the region is the getaway destination of choice, but for a fortunate few, it is home. Berkeley Hall Club is a private gated golf community edged on the banks of the pristine Okatie River in the heart of the Coastal Lowcountry – a world with a casual, inviting lifestyle that sets the standard for all private communities.
The 980-acre property is unique among top private golf communities. With two world-class Tom Fazio golf courses and a stunning Jeffersonian-style clubhouse that form the “Core” of the community, the 554 homes/home sites are arranged around the 36 holes’ perimeter allowing two walkable classic courses that feel more like a golf retreat. The community offers generous home setbacks; including beautiful lagoons, strategic live oaks and lolloby pines which all accentuate the course routings. Mr. Fazio sums up the Berkeley Hall golf experience as “every round feels like a walk in the park.”
Member-owned and operated since January 2005, Berkeley Hall is debt-free and maintains a multi-million dollar capital reserve.
The community is ideally located – just minutes from Hilton Head Island, within a half hour’s drive of historic Beaufort, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia; and within two short hours of Charleston – offering an endless universe of world-class cuisine, shopping, and attractions combined with fine Southern charm.
Voted “One of America’s 100 Premier Properties” by both Links Magazine and Travel & Leisure Golf, Berkeley Hall is a private world with a casual, inviting lifestyle that sets the standard for all private communities. Its surroundings, its natural beauty, and the way the place lives are simply beyond compare.
Golf in its purest form awaits you at Berkeley Hall, the most distinguished private golf club in golf-rich Hilton Head area. Great golf is the very heart of Berkeley Hall. With no interior homes or roads, roads, two Tom Fazio core courses meander through an open coastal landscape framed by seaside grasses. This pure golf, says Fazio, is akin to courses like Merion, Winged Foot and Seminole. A round of golf feels like a walk in the park rather than a ride through the subdivision. Dramatic elevation changes, beautiful water features, and bold strategic bunkering showcase the designer’s artistry.
The two Berkley Hall golf courses offer distinctively different challenges. The North Course at Berkeley Hall showcases Fazio’s artistry through unexpected elevation changes ” not usually found in a Lowcountry course ” throughout the refreshingly open coastal landscape, tranquil lakes and strategic bunkering. Bentgrass greens are large and contoured. The dramatic features carved along the tideland treasures of the Okatie River make the North Course at Berkeley Hall one of the finest Fazio has ever designed, according to the designer himself. The South Course at Berkeley Hall is more of a classic Lowcountry golfing experience with tree-line fairways winding through a mature forest of pine. This parkland style, along with beautiful water features and contoured, but slightly smaller greens than the North Course, make it a shot-makers delight.
The Berkeley Hall Golf Learning Center is home to both PGA professionals as well as hard-driving amateurs. Its 30+ acres boast laser systems, video and PGA staff, and weather-protected, climate-controlled practice opportunities, among other things, so you can practice your swing year round, rain or shine. Housed in a 2,000 square ft. building, the facility includes: four climate-controlled hitting bays; a Super Bay with four video cameras and flat-screen televisions; a mobile canopy structure allowing practice, regardless of the weather; a short game complex with four large practice greens; and Tru-Putt indoor putting with mirrors and a laser system. Fazio also envisioned, along with the practice facility and Learning Center, that there should be a lounging space for players to relax. The casual, yet plush, Fazio Room is such a place offering members a space for socializing, watching sporting events and enjoying the ever-present complimentary refreshments. To complete this pure golf experience, instruction is at your fingertips with two award-winning professionals on-staff.
The Spa and Fitness center sets a lofty standard in terms of equipment and services. The facility includes an indoor pool and whirlpool, cardiovascular strength equipment, pilates and yoga rooms, sauna and steam rooms, spa treatment areas, and a specialty coffee and juice bar. Adjacent to the center are tennis courts, outdoor pool with private cabanas, a children’s playground, and pickleball courts.
Overlooking the finishing holes of the North Course, the 45,000 sq. foot Jeffersonian style Clubhouse, complete with six distinctive dining experiences, represents the “next generation” of lifestyle amenities. The Berkeley Hall Clubhouse is ideal for relaxing, entertaining, meeting new people, or gathering with family and good friends. An air of lavish yet laid back comfort is felt as soon as you enter the Clubhouse Grand Hall. Here you’re surrounded by painted murals, antique furniture, 14-foot floor to ceiling windows and an elegant parlor
Berkeley Halls boasts some of the BEST food among the private clubs in the Lowcountry. There are 6 distinct dining areas in the clubhouse alone, including a Tuscan Wine Cellar, The Berkeley Room, The Tap Room, The Mixed Grille, The Veranda, and even the Men’s Locker Room features a daily breakfast for the early golfers. The club also offers monthly food trucks down at the River Park and the clubhouse now even DELIVERS dinner 6 days a week, if you prefer to dine inside your own home. There is always something going on at Berkeley Hall, whether it’s virtual wine tastings with neighbors, live music outside on the Verandah from local musicians and bands, weekly card games from Mahjong to Poker, or the signature holiday events from the 4th of July week of festivities, culminating in a massive fireworks show to oyster roasts on the River over Thanksgiving.
