Things To Do In Shipyard

Shipyard Golf Club

Put your game to the test with 27 holes of championship golf. Brigantine will test your short game skills with well-placed bunkers; Clipper will keep you on your toes with its sand and water hazards; and Galleon will call on your accuracy as you meander through large oaks and tall pines. Two of the three courses can also be combined for a unique 18-hole round.

Van der Meer Shipyard Tennis Center

World-class instruction awaits you on the clay courts of the Van der Meer Shipyard Tennis Resort, named as one of TENNIS Magazine’s top 50 US Tennis Resorts. The Resort offers a selection of adult and junior clinics, daily programs, and summer camps, each guided by PTR-certified professionals.

Miles of White, Sandy Beaches

One of the most spectacular parts of Hilton Head Island is its beach, which can be accessed via the Shipyard Beach Club. With white, sandy beaches extending miles in either direction, planning a day at the beach is inevitable.
