Haig Pointlocated on Daufuskie Island, just a short private ferry ride across the Calibogue Sound from Hilton Head Island, South Carolinais a 1,050-acre, private community paradise which offers world-class amenities for the entire family. If you're thinking about an island retreat or a new place to call home, you owe it to yourself to visit Haig Point. It's the only private club on the Southeast coast that is owned by its members and managed by Troon Golf. Upon your arrival, you'll discover a warm, welcoming community, steeped in history, that must be experienced to be appreciated.
In addition to the 29 spectacular holes of golf, Haig Point members enjoy a magnificent clubhouse, Har-Tru tennis, bridge, croquet, two swimming pools, fitness trail, cycling and horseback riding. In addition, the ecologically sensitive island provides an excellent backdrop for countless outdoor activities such as fly fishing, shrimping, crabbing, sunset and dolphin watch cruises or simple walks along the shores of the Calibogue Sound. And unlike most other private communities, there are no automobiles to spoil what nature has so carefully created.
Haig Point offers a delightful range of residences including custom single family homes, an array of cottage homes, and a varied selection of townhomes comprising a broad selection of sizes, floor plans and views.

Our vision for golf at Haig Point is to provide a golf experience “second to none.” And we can all truly say that the opportunity for a memorable experience with every round exists in this protected paradise.
It’s all here! The views of the sound and the ocean are beautiful, as are the inland holesthreaded through magnificent live oaks and magnolias with wild life abounding. Each unhurried and uncrowded round provides an atmosphere of peace and tranquility far different from other courses.
We are also fortunate to have had one of the finest golf course architects, Rees Jones, who created a true masterpiece at Haig Point. The Calibogue Signature Course is one of the greatest championship venues in the world of golfwhile the Haig Course offers a more forgiving round for higher-handicappersand the Osprey nine is a nice change of pace for our members.
Enjoy the experience! There are few like it if anywhere.
At Haig Point, the ideal routing allowed us to take full advantage of the seaside elements of the island in building the Calibogue Course, along with the more playable Haig Course in which two different par-threes were built with additional tees.
The creation of two courses in one was possible due to the addition of two extra inland par-threes adjacent to the 8th and 17th holesand many diverse tee placements throughout the course. The result was 20 golf holes, 96 tee boxes and two distinct and equally beautiful golf courses with different degrees of difficulty and shot-making requirements.
The Haig Point golf experience is rounded out by the par-36, Osprey nine, also designed by Rees Jones. The Osprey nine is slightly less demanding for mid- to hi-handicappers, but it is a perfect complement or change of pace from the coastal nines.
From I-95, take exit 8 to Highway 278. Follow Highway 278 to the Cross Island Parkway on Hilton Head Island.
At the end of the parkway (Palmetto Bay Road) make a left at the first traffic light onto Arrow Road, and an immediate left onto Helmsman Way. You will see the entrance to the Haig Point embarkation center on your right.
Continue through the gates and go to the “bag drop” on the right. The valet will take your luggage, clubs, etc. and put them on the ferry. Park in the Welcome Center parking lot on the left. The ferries leave every hour on the half hour. (8:30, 9:30, etc.)
