The Bluffton, S.C., private golf community features 36 holes of golf, a clubhouse, and a 9,200-sq. ft. athletic center. Members recently approved the addition of an outdoor dining area and lounge, and a new multi-purpose facility with pools, fitness equipment, a cafe, and meeting space, with construction expected to begin in early 2018.
Troon has been selected to manage Belfair, a private golf club community in Bluffton, S.C. Troon Privé, the private club operations division of Troon, will manage the award-winning 36-hole facility as well as the community’s property owners association.
Approximately 1,100 acres in size, Belfair is located on the mainland in Bluffton, five miles from Hilton Head Island. The club features two championship golf courses designed by Tom Fazio that exemplify Lowcountry beauty. The West Course opened in 1996 and the East Course opened in 1999, reminiscent of the links courses of Scotland while showcasing the area’s deep-water views, fresh water lakes and lagoons.
“Belfair is a special place—the golf, the community and the amenities are all world class,” said Bruce Glasco, executive vice president and COO, Troon. “It’s one of the iconic clubs and communities of the East Coast. We are honored to be associated with such a wonderful club and look forward to working with the members of Belfair as we help enhance an already incredible property.”
In addition to golf, other amenities at Belfair include a world-class golf learning center, a clubhouse and a 9,200-sq. ft. athletic center that includes two pools, tennis courts, certified personal training, spa services, a dog park and more. The club offers four dining options, including the 1811 Grille, Veranda Dining, The Oaks Dining Room and poolside dining at the athletic center. In addition to the existing amenities, members recently approved the addition of an outdoor dining area and lounge at the existing clubhouse, as well as the construction of a new multi-purpose facility with pools, fitness equipment, a cafe, and meeting space. Construction is expected to begin in early 2018.
The Troon Privé Division currently manages nearly 70 private clubs, half of which are member owned.
