When you step onto Daufuskie Island, you're transported to a time before bridges and large developments, when island life meant a less complicated way of living. Daufuskie is a residential "sea Island' off the coast of Hilton Head Island with total area of only eight square miles. With more than 3 miles of beach and between 250 to 300 full-time residents, Daufuskie Island is the ultimate retreat for permanent or vacation living. Daufuskie offers you a refuge from the outside world with its private and serene beaches, forest trails and plenty of wildlife.
The only means of access to the island is by water. That is one of the many features that make Daufuskie so unique. Ferries run twice a day to transport visitors and residents to the island. However, in order to get the full island experience, you must leave your car behind and take it slow. Once you've made your way to Daufuskie by boat or sea plane, your transportation options open up to include golf cart, bicycle or your own two feet.
You have your choice of a few developed residential areas on the island, but you can take advantage of all the unincorporated, untouched, inherent beauty and charm Daufuskie has to offer. Two of the most well-known communities for their history and amenities are Haig Point and Bloody Point.
One of the developed, private residential clubs is Haig Point, which was known as Haig's Point in plantation days. This area is home to the Haig Point Lighthouse, which was built in 1873 and in operation until 1924. This community is also known for its impressive tabby ruins, rich, Gullah history and golf of course.
Haig Point's Rees Jones Signature Course has been mentioned several times in Golf Digest's "America's 100 Greatest Courses," and earned a position in Golf Magazine's "Top 100 in the World." The Signature Course provides alternate tee and hole selections, which accommodates each golfer's skill level and style of play. The community also offers you tennis, croquet, fitness programs and plenty of possibilities to discover Daufuskie's unique environment.
The Bloody Point Golf Club offers you, as a member, the opportunity to live as if you were on vacation everyday enjoying luxurious amenities, breathtaking views and championship golf. The community, which sits on 350 acres of Daufuskie, features oceanfront and second-row home sites as well as lots along the Mungen River. The club features a 9,000-square-foot Clubhouse, which includes The Eagle's Nest Restaurant and Bar, Pro Shop, General Store and men's and women's locker rooms. You'll have direct access to the beachfront pool, secluded beaches and a dock, with water taxi service to Savannah, Ga.
The championship 18-hole golf course at Bloody Point was recently redesigned by the Love Design Group. The public course boasts ocean, river, lagoon, and marshland views. The club also offers a full-service practice facility including more than 200 yards of grass tees, driving range and more than acre set aside to perfect your short game.
