Old South Golf Links:

Just before the bridge to Hilton Head Island you will find Old South Golf Links - one of the most enjoyable golf courses in the low-country. Course architect, Clyde Johnston, preserved the natural beauty of the land with a diversity of holes that makes Old South a golfer's delight. Old South features all the dramatic qualities that golf on Hilton Head is known for - marsh front holes, three island greens, towering live oaks, rolling Scottish terrain and spectacular views of the inter-coastal waterway. Best Hole: No. 7, a 370-yard par-4 that plays to an island fairway, then to an island green, narrow and undulating, guarded by bunkers in front and in back.

Non-Golfing Activities to Consider:



Old Town - Bluffton:

Old Town Bluffton is a must see when in the area. It is beautiful, funky, interesting and always welcoming. Check out the many art galleries, antique shops, boutiques and restaurants and more restaurants. On the banks of the May River, there are civil war period homes, the Oyster Factory, tours on the river and golf cart tours as well. You will never be bored. In addition, don’t miss the Thursday farmers’ market or the many festivals on Calhoun Street in the heart of Old Town.


Church of the Cross – A National Historic Site:

One of the only structures in Bluffton that was not burned by Union Troops during the Civil War. The Church is a Gothic Revival-style originally designed by Edward Brickell White in 1853. The church’s first service took place in July of 1857.
Located at 110 Calhoun Street, the Church overlooks the scenic May River. The Church of the Cross has survived hurricanes and wars, and has attracted generations of worshipers for more than 165 years.
The Church of the Cross, on the National Register of Historic Places since 1975, features heart pine siding, cathedral ceilings and pink glass imported directly from England. Fanned arches with a look of palmettos top its mullioned windows that are framed by latticed shutters.  Get a docent to give you a tour. Various stories on why it was spared the union torch while most of the town was burnt. Ask about the honey bees that live in the walls.

The church and grounds are so welcoming and they give you a sense of tranquility. So peaceful. Definitely a must see to appreciate and feel the tranquility.

Daily Tours are offered Monday - Friday at 2:00pm, but advance reservations are required, call us for details: 843-757-6046.


Rose Hill Mansion:

The historic Rose Hill Mansion, known as the most beautiful plantation house in the Lowcountry, has long held a treasured place in Southern history. Originally built in the late 1850s by planter and physician, Dr. John Kirk and his wife Caroline, the plantation was a wedding present from Caroline's father, James Kirk.
Work was halted by the Civil War, and while occupied through the years, the interior was not completed until 1946, when new owners John and Betsy Gould Sturgeon finished it in grand style.  In 1980, the Welton family purchased the land and the house was later listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In 1987, a fire devastated the house & it sat in a state of ruin until purchased and restored by The Middleton White Foundation. After a decade long restoration, the home is now shared with the public each day, via guided history tours.
The grand entry’s original open stringer spiral staircase is period grandeur. See the portrait of James Brown Kirk ( original founder of Bluffton ) & Dr. John Kirk, painted by granddaughter Emily, at the request of her mother, Caroline. The Kirk family returned these portraits, as well as other family heirlooms & original documents when the home was opened for tours in 2007.

Harbour Town Lighthouse Museum:

Just over four decades old, the red-and-white-striped Harbour Town Lighthouse serves not only as a beacon to the many ships that reside in our Yacht Basin but also as a landmark that has come to symbolize Hilton Head Island to people all over the world.

This is a good place to visit--especially first time visitors to Hilton Head. It provides nice views of the sound and golf course. There is no elevator so be prepared to walk up 100+ steps. On the way up there are interesting photos and facts about the history of the island, so it makes the way up worthwhile.  In addition to the historic lighthouse tour, they offer one of the most unique gift shops on Hilton Head Island, featuring one the largest collections about lighthouses in America.
