A GOLF DIGEST “TOP 100 COURSE:” Haig Point‘s 29 Holes of Seaside Golf
If there is anywhere on the Point where pictures are worth 1,000 words it is our Rees Jones masterpiece. The design and physical beauty are breathtaking, and both contribute to an incomparable experience. Even in a region recognized for landmark golf courses, Haig Point consistently draws accolades and hosts noteworthy tournaments.
First designed in 1986, the initial routing included 20 holes, including the two extra greens. Jones’ returned to Daufuskie Island in 2007 to restore the greens and sharpen the course’s legacy as one of the best in the nation. Yardage increased from 7,150 to 7,380 and improved the USGA rating.
Known for his excellence, Rees Jones has earned the nickname, “The Open Doctor” referring to the number of his courses that host majors, including the U.S. Open, Ryder Cup, and PGA Championship. Haig’s 29 holes are classic Jones’ architecture and never disappoint. Complementing the experience are an exceptional Practice Facility, Golf Shop, and a stately Clubhouse and restaurant.
REES JONES’ PERSPECTIVE:
“I’ve been fortunate to design golf courses at some of the greatest sites in the world and Haig Point is no exception. It’s not a surprise to see it on many “Top-100” lists, it’s that good. Haig Point is an example of my changing design philosophy. I originally created the course with numerous pot bunkers that were in vogue at the time. Now, many have been replaced by windswept, more natural looking sand traps and waste areas that are more fitting to the surroundings. The community provides a wonderful sense of life, a pristine environment, and separates you from the turmoil in which we live. It’s hard to argue why you would want to be anywhere else than here.” Rees Jones
A MAGIC NUMBER 29
Part of the fun of playing Haig’s Signature course is that both the 8th and 17th seaside holes have two greens to choose from. But there is more, for throughout the Signature and Osprey courses there are multiple tee boxes, many of which present entirely different vantages, distances and wind conditions. Every day on these courses is different because you can play a different scorecard.
Haig Point’s SIGNATURE COURSE:
The Signature course has appeared in Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Courses” and “Best in State,” and has earned a coveted position in Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 in the World.” Par is 72, rating is 74.9 and slope rating of 142. At once challenging and rewarding.
The 9-hole OSPREY COURSE:
This 9-hole beauty boasts breathtaking surroundings and views. It offers a fast, friendly option for those who are new to the game or are out for a casual tune up. The par 36 Osprey course consists of Bermuda grass and has a rating of 74.9 with a slope rating of 142. Perfect for a quick round before or after the workday, and often enjoyed with the family in tow.
DAILY GUEST AND MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS:
While a private club, Haig Point does welcome a limited number of daily guests to the course. Players will embark on our ferries from Hilton Head or other Lowcountry communities. Valets transport bags and gear to and from the golf clubhouse, or, to residences at Haig Point.
