Like Sea Pines, Shipyard is another gated community on the south end of Hilton Head Island. While many vacationers enjoy its private access to the Atlantic Ocean, the proximity of rental properties makes Shipyard a popular choice for golfers and tennis players.
The Golf Club at Shipyard features a unique combination of 27 holes. Two of the three inter-connecting nine holes are combined for a challenging 18-hole round. The original Clipper and Galleon courses create an exciting combination of long fairways and perilous hazards, while the Brigantine course winds its way around lagoons and breath-taking terrain. The three nine-hole courses offer four tee positions that accommodate all levels of play. Accurate tee shots and well-placed approaches are rewarded on this championship course. The greens are large and well bunkered. Their undulating surfaces demand a delicate touch.
Shipyard is home to the Van der Meer Tennis Academy, the PTR international headquarters. Named as one of Tennis Magazine's top 50 US tennis resorts, this championship venue is nestled among magnificent live oaks and beautifully landscaped grounds. The Resort has twenty courts; eight are lighted and three are indoors. Among the clinics offered are adult, senior, advanced, cardio, doubles, drill and play, world class, and fantasy.
Within this gated community, residents and guests have easy access to the Crowne Plaza, an ocean-side resort that features fine dining, a night club, and libations near the sea. Enjoy breakfast at Brellas Cafe, happy hour at Signals Lounge, and sumptuous seafood dinners at Portz restaurant. Signals Lounge also has seasonal live music & dancing.
Lagoons, forests, and fairways cover the landscape of this quiet community offering a welcome sanctuary to travelers as well as the island’s wildlife. Within ½ mile of its gated entrances, visitors find dining, shopping, and other vacation amenities in Forest Beach and Wexford Village.
