Sea Pines Resort Prepares for 2015 Heritage

Harbour Town Yacht Basin

Harbour Town Yacht Basin

Hilton Head Island is recognized, revered and loved for many things, including 12 miles of beautiful beaches, luxury homes and villas within private, gated communities, great weather, spectacular fishing, friendly residents, and vacations of a lifetime. Golf, however, is one of our most venerated attributes. With winter on its heels and spring in full swing, Sea Pines Resort is gearing up for its annual Heritage golf tournament.
With PGA-player designed oceanfront courses, courses that meander along the sounds, creeks, tidal marshes and pristine lagoons, as well as manicured fairways that wind through stands of centuries-old live oaks, Hilton Head stands apart from and above the rest. Right now, preparations are underway for the 47th Heritage Golf Tournament to be held in Sea Pines Resort on the renowned Harbour Town Golf Links, named one of the top 20 courses in the country by Golf Digest and Golfweek. A favorite among PGA tour players, Harbour Town is one of three premiere courses in the famed resort. Just completed and not to be missed is the brand new three-story Harbour Town Clubhouse. Immediately following this year’s tournament, Harbour Town Golf Links will close for the summer for re-grassing and the installation of a state-of-the-art irrigation system.
Players of all levels enjoy play on the Ocean Course, a classic design featuring strategically placed lagoons and bunkers. At 6,906 yards, the Ocean Course will have a redesign by Davis Love III and his brother, Mark. The course will close for play in October and reopen in September 2016. A total renovation of the layout will take place.Hilton Head Golf
Heron Point reopened for play in September following completed enhancements by Pete Dye. The green surrounds and contours were softened, greens were enlarged and landscape improvements and additions were put into place.
With all of the recent construction (Plantation Clubhouse, the oceanfront Beach Club and Harbour Town Clubhouse), general renovation of the resort itself, course improvements and with more to commence in the coming months, Sea Pines Resort has renewed its commitment to golfing excellence and to an overall excellence in the resort experience. Such can only add to the enjoyment of the resort overall—increasing property interest (and property values) is a byproduct of this commitment.
See for yourself. New construction is booming and existing home and villa sales are robust. Fall in love again with the Island’s premier resort. Discover your paradise and make the escape of a lifetime; enjoy time together with family and entertaining guests in a new Sea Pines home or villa that will certainly accommodate your needs and your lifestyle, both present and future.

SWEET HOME HILTON HEAD

Call Bill True Real Estate

Sea Breezes in Sea Pines Resort

When considering Hilton Head Island real estate, different things come to mind for different people. As an avid fisherman and lover of the outdoors, I came to know the island over 30 years ago on my boat and, more recently, in my kayak. An absolute understanding of the island can be garnered quietly, peacefully, still. One with nature, you might say.

Selling real estate on the Island has been my passion for nearly three decades. Many things have changed during that time, yet much has remained the same. People love Hilton Head for the same reasons that brought me here. The weather and the water. Yes, of course, golf, tennis, outdoor activities, equestrian pursuits, fine restaurants, beautiful homes, great schools, entertainment and the arts are all part of the equation—but the weather and the water are why we stay.Marsh2-400
• Bring the outdoors in (or take the indoors out). With designs in mind for four seasons, homes in the Lowcountry often have open-air living areas. Our weather is consistently consistent—tropical breezes, warm temperatures even in the dead of winter, live oaks and palmettos rustling, providing shade with a natural canopy. Different from a lanai that is usually covered, glassed-in or screened, the open-air living areas are more of an extension of the home, usually a terrace, stone or wood that is easily accessible from the main living area of the home via multiple French doors. Often, a sculptured pool with beautiful stone decking and a fire place (tabby, of course) flank the area. Think: the weather is beautiful, wish you were here.
• The unspoiled shoreline. Seven beaches stitched together in a seamless fashion comprise our foot-shaped Island’s 20-mile shoreline as it meanders from South Beach (The Toe) in Sea Pines Resort to the northern tip of Hilton Head Plantation (The Ghost Beach). In between these two anchor beaches lie Bird Haven, The War Beach, The Tempest, Bass Head and Long Beach. Each of the surf and tide-washed beaches is wide, hard-packed and strewn with shells. Perfect for play, strolls or long bike rides, our endless summers begin here with the classic coastal colors set amidst one of the most unique and beautiful islands in the world.

LIFE AWAITS ON HILTON HEAD ISLAND

Sea Pines Resort

Sea Pines Resort

No two people share the same experience the same way. We each have our individual life chapters, events and expectations, yet every one of us has a story to tell about OUR Hilton Head—how we came to know it, love it, protect it. It’s the unexpected treasures that stay in our hearts and minds: the waves as they form and break into the surf, the osprey as he soars over the shoreline, nature as she transforms herself from season to season, silhouettes strolling at low tide into a fireball orange sunset, flats boats gliding effortlessly and silently along the creeks at sunrise, the quiet rustle of the palmetto fronds as the breeze comes through just before a summer rain. Life on Hilton Head Island means all things different to all people, but unless you spend time here—more than vacation, more than a summer’s stay—you may never know the real Hilton Head Island.Sea Pines Resort
