Sea PInes Country Club Awarded Prestigious "DISTINGUISHED CLUB" honor
By Dave Daubert
Sea Pines Country Club, Hilton Head Island's premier private country club offering a luxury, Low Country lifestyle, has again received the "Distinguished Club" award from BoardRoom Magazine. The Distinguished Clubs program uses an exclusive rating system that recognizes facilities, management and staff based on a top-tier member experience. Sea Pines Country Club continues to exceed service, staff quality and club governance standards. Fewer than 200 out of 3,400 private clubs in America have been awarded this status and Sea Pines Country Club is one five in South Carolina.
"BoardRoom Magazine is one of the most respected voices in the private club industry and we're honored to once again be named a Distinguished Club," says General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Robbie Ames. "It's a testament to how the club has evolved to exceed members' expectations and how well positioned it is for the future." The Sea Pines Country Club is located within the gates of the famed Sea Pines community, home to the RBC Heritage Golf Classic played every spring. It is the only annual PGA TOUR competition held in South Carolina.
Over the past four years under the leadership of Ames, his professional management team and a progressive and forward-thinking board, Sea Pines Country Club has met their ambitious objectives of its "Vision 2020 Facility Enhancement Plan."
The 17,000 square-foot clubhouse has been expanded and enhanced to provide the ultimate sanctuary for members and their families. New casual yet contemporary dining experiences abound with the Blue Heron Pub & Grille and the Club Course Cafe'. Fine dining is led by Executive Chef Brian Coseo, complemented by a diverse wine collection curated by Food & Beverage Director Mike Lozan.
Capping the Vision 2020 Enhancement Plan, a 7,300-square-foot fitness center opened in 2019 featuring the latest cardio and strength training equipment and infrared saunas. A new second floor with a balcony overlooking the tennis center and golf practice
range and features a multipurpose room for group classes and gatherings.
Sea Pines Country Club is a highly-amenitized property, and its focal point is the resort-caliber pool deck overlooking one of the island's largest tidal marshes. Members soak up the Hilton Head Island sun rays while cooling off in the waters of the 24-meter lap pool as children play in the fountains of the kid's splash pool nearby. An array of food and beverage choices are available poolside via the Club Course Cafe'.
Golfing members enjoy the true centerpiece of the club, the Arnold Palmer/ Clyde Johnston designed 'Club Course,' a pure example of a Low Country golf with narrow, spanish-moss-draped oak tree-lined fairways, subtle doglegs, languid lagoons leading to beguiling greens. The meticulously maintained 6,383-yard layout delivers a sense of intrigue on every tee box of this shotmaker's gem, as players discover what style of hole comes next.
