10 Haig Point Circle,
Daufuskie Island, South Carolina SC 29928
20 holes. Tree-lined parkland. Relatively flat terrain.
Woodland and briefly oceanside (Calibogue Sound)
Rees Jones designed the original layout (1986) and subsequent restoration (2007).
Daufuskie Island is home to three golf courses: 18-hole Bloody Point course (resort with accommodation); 18-hole Melrose course (closed), and 29-hole Haig Point course (private).
Daufuskie Island is less than 1 mi across Calibogue Sound from Hilton Head Island, and accessed by ferry from the northern end of Hilton Head Island.
The private Haig Point Club is home to a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in South Carolina. This 29-hole tree-lined parkland layout, comprises the 20-hole Signature course and 9-hole Osprey course. Rees Jones' well-crafted layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive and challenging holes to enjoy.
In addition to occasional views out onto scenic Calibogue Sound, part of the fun of playing the Signature course comes at the par-3 8th and par-3 17th holes. On each occasion, you are allowed to choose which of two options you want to play ... the tree-lined "Haig" option or the tougher wetland-carry "Calibogue" option.
Limited access: this private course is generally playable only by members and their invited guests.
Private club; guests may play if hosted by a member. For prospective members a Golf Discovery Package is available based on accommodation in the Strachan Mansion or historic Lighthouse.
Haig Point takes its name from a family who previously owned the land here. In 1735, George Haig I bought the 500-acre plot from Archibald Niele. Following Haig's death, Haig Point (as it was then called) was left to George Haig III in 1790. In 1810, Haig sold the land to the Mongin family, who later acquired the neighbouring 600-acre Freeport Plantation. This created the nearly 1,100-acre plantation now known as Haig Point.
World: formerly ranked world's 68th best course (GOLF magazine, 1989; not in subsequent editions of this ranking).
State: 20th best course in South Carolina (Golf Digest, 2019/20).

South African Open: December 2021 events in South Africa have again been impacted by the Covid pandemic. The South African Open (Dec 2-5) will no longer be played as a DP World Tour event, and the Alfred Dunhill Championship (Dec 9-12) has been cancelled.
Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Lee Elder: Trailblazer, Ryder Cup player, four-time PGA Tour winner and eight-time Senior PGA Tour winner, Lee Elder died on November 28, aged 87. In 1975 he became the first African American golfer to play in the Masters tournament, and in so doing provided one of the pivotal moments in the history of professional golf.
