Shipyard may be comparatively small in size but with award-winning golf, tennis, biking and a gorgeous strip of private Atlantic ocean beach, it’s large on recreation.
The unique Shipyard Golf Club features 27-holes of championship golf separated into three distinctive 9-hole courses. The Brigantine, Clipper and Galleon courses play through an abundance of water hazards and offer 4 tee positions to accommodate all levels of play. Two of the three inter-connecting nines are combined for a challenging 18-hole round. The greens are large and well bunkered. The Clipper and Galleon courses were both designed by George Cobb and built in 1970. The Brigantine course was added in 1982 and built by designer Willard C. Byrd.
The Van Der Meer Shipyard Resort features 20 tennis courts and has been named in Tennis Magazine’s Top 50 U.S. tennis resorts. The 13 Har-Tru and seven hard courts play host to various tournaments, clinics and summer camps. You can play day or night, rain or shine, since eight of the courts are lit and three are indoors.
Shipyard Beach Club
Located adjacent to the Sonesta Resort, the indoor-outdoor Shipyard Beach Club provides residents and guests easy access to a beautiful wide strip of Atlantic shore. With large wrap-around decks and all the interior furnishings needed to host social events of all types and sizes, Shipyard residents frequently rent the Beach Club for weddings and family gatherings.
