Spring Island is located between Hilton Head Island and Beaufort, SC. One-third of the island's three thousand acres are dedicated as a nature preserve. Less than four hundred families call the island home with a maximum capacity around four hundred homes.
The golf course is considered by many to be one of the very best in the country. Arnold Palmer designed Spring Island's Old Tabby Links. The course was ranked nineteenth among the top one hundred residential courses in America by Golf Week Magazine (2004).
Facilities include a modern twenty four-stall barn surrounded by fifteen grass paddocks. There are two riding rings, one for hunters and jumpers, and one for pleasure and beginning riders. Members enjoy the thirty five miles of trails. The equestrian manager gives lessons and plans a variety of trips and events.
The tennis facility includes four first class har-true clay courts.
Thousands of acres of salt water are easily accessible to Spring Island. The Colleton and Chechessee Rivers are in plain view and flow into Port Royal Sound and the Atlantic Ocean.
The fitness center is located in the Sports Garden along with the swimming pool, badminton, volleyball and tennis courts. With separate areas for cardio workouts, strengthening, and group exercise, the workout area is complete with cybex machines, free weights, ellipticals and treadmills. Also provided are aerobic, pilates, stretching and yoga classes.
Members may also choose to join The Hunt Club, which provides quail hunting in the classic manner, with mule drawn wagon and hunters on horseback.
