Located along the still waters of the Okatie River in the heart of South Carolina’s Lowcountry, Berkeley Hall offers the perfect blend of private club sophistication and Southern hospitality. While the landscape is plentiful, the homes and homesites are in limited supply. In fact, Berkeley Hall is the lowest density private course in the Southeast with an average of 5.3 homesites per hole. With two world-class Tom Fazio golf courses and a stunning Jeffersonian-style Clubhouse, the club experience is balanced out through a range of indoor and outdoor activities designed for the entire family. It all comes together, perfectly, in one community.
The club has received numerous accolades such as a Platinum Club of America 2021-23, by Club Leaders Forum, and a Distinguished Emerald Club by Boardroom Magazine, signifying its reputation as one of the most prestigious clubs in the country.
The newly released Platinum Club individual club rankings list Berkeley Hall within the Top 50 of the nation’s Top 150 country clubs and the #2 ranked Platinum country club in South Carolina.
The club has also been named among the “Top 100 Golf Communities” by Travel & Leisure and “Top 100 Premiere Properties” by Links Magazine. Golfweek has also named the North & South Courses among the “Best Residential Courses” in the United States.
The location of Berkeley Hall is ideal- 10 miles from the beaches of Hilton Head Island, 30 minutes to downtown Savannah and 90 minutes to Charleston. Only about 10 miles from I-95, it’s easily accessible from anywhere on the East Coast.
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.
SPA & FITNESS CENTER
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.
The River Park winds along the banks of the Okatie River. Community Dock is dotted with egrets and the occasional dolphin sighting. Surrounded by 10 miles of nature trails, the Berkeley Hall Greenway travels to the park, over rustic bridges and below moss-draped live oaks. It’s here where the community hosts oyster roasts, meet ups with friends, and simply turn off the world for awhile. Members flock to the River Park to explore the river in a kayak or on a paddleboard, enjoy a sunset cruise with friends, or simply sit quietly on the dock, taking it all in.
Overlooking the finishing holes of the North Course, the 35,000 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. A fresh “upscale Lowcountry look” was given to the Clubhouse during the recent renovation in 2021/22 and now features a breathtaking 4 Seasons Veranda, a 5,000 square foot addition to provide year-round dining in a climate-controlled environment, taking full advantage of panoramic golf course views.
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 Palmetto Room, 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.
However, the people truly make Berkeley Hall a special place as the residents are vibrant and active and the staff provides a wonderful experience in each area of the club which makes it feel like you are living at a 5-star resort.
