The vision for Long Cove was developed in the early 1970’s by three young men who honed their skills and development philosophies working for the Sea Pines Company on Hilton Head Island. The developers knew they had found the perfect piece of land to build a community that returned to the simple and exclusive principles of private, single-family residential living, removed from the hubbub created by island tourists. In 1981, when Long Cove Club was unveiled, it lured to the island a bevy of selective golfers seeking world-class golf with a Pete Dye masterpiece as its crowning jewel. Today, the club that set the standard for golf course communities finds itself leading the pack. Long Cove Club continues to build on the traditions that make it among the premier communities anywhere in the world.
