Hilton Head Plantation
One of Hilton Head’s largest and most age-diverse residential neighborhoods is Hilton Head Plantation (HHP), spread over 4,000 acres between the Intracoastal Waterway and Port Royal Sound. It is home to the Country Club of Hilton Head’s semi-private 18-hole golf course designed by Rees Jones. Jones also designed the plantation’s award-winning Oyster Reek Golf Course and Bear Creek Golf Course. The plantation has a fourth, private course created by Gary Player and Ron Kirby called Dolphin Head.
In addition to its plentiful golf options, the plantation provides access to two miles of beach, a community recreation center, shared gardening area, numerous community swimming pools and tennis courts, Skull Creek Marina, and the Old Fort Pub restaurant. Two nature conservancies possess beautiful, lengthy natural trails and boardwalks through marsh. Residents can walk a narrow isthmus connecting the plantation to Pine Island, an approximately 30-acre stretch of preserved land surrounded by beach. An extensive leisure path system winds through the community.
