Shipyard is among the smaller Hilton Head Island’s communities on the south end of Hilton Head Island, only 800 acres and 500 feet of beach accessed via the Shipyard Beach Club. Shipyard was initially developed as the sister property of Port Royal Plantation in 1970 to accommodate Hilton Head multi family residential residences and vacation rentals. Fred Hack who formed the Island Development Company also developed Shipyard along with Port Royal. Shipyard’s amenities include the beach, golf, tennis, biking / walking trails.
Shipyard Plantation is home to the Shipyard Golf Club, featuring 27-holes of spectacular golf. The Shipyard Golf Club has three 9-hole golf courses; Brigantine, Clipper and Galleon and a clubhouse, golf pro shop, state-of-the-art practice center and restaurant. The courses can be played in three 18 -hole combinations. Each course has its own merits and difficulties, with 25 water hazards coming into play throughout the majority of the holes.
