Long Cove Real Estate


Small by comparison, with just over 630 acres, Long Cove is located off William Hilton Parkway, adjacent to Wexford Plantation on Hilton Head’s south end. Developed in 1981, and located along Broad Creek on the Intracoastal Waterway, the community was created to attract selective golfers seeking world-class golf and a private club lifestyle. Anchored by a Pete Dye masterpiece, the golf course spent 30 years as a Golf Digest “Top 100 Course” and is consistently ranked a top course in South Carolina. In addition to 24-hour gated security, superb golf and the 84-slip marina, Long Cove Club comprises a Tennis Center, community gardens and children’s playground, as well as year-round fishing, boating and kayaking, all within the gates.
