Sea Pines Plantation


Sea Pines Plantation is located on the Southern tip (or the “toe”) of the Island, and is home to Harbour Town and its world famous red and white lighthouse. The Harbour Town Golf Club is the home of the World Com Classic on the PGA Tour, held the week following the Masters each year. Sea Pines is Hilton Head Island’s first developed community, or “Plantation,” as it was originally termed by founder Charles Fraser in 1956. Mr. Fraser and his investors envisioned a new kind of development in which residents could enjoy the amenities of a respectable resort community while leaving the natural landscape and beauty intact. Sea Pines Plantation was the “result” of his research, and it has become the model for the environmentally conscious development for the rest of the Island. Sea Pines consists of large full-time residential areas as well as numerous resort properties, second homes and rental homes.
