The Hilton Head area has long heralded as one of the most popular South Carolina retirement community destinations existing for active adults aged 55 or better. Set in Hardeeville, Hilton Head Lakes reside on a prime location within close proximity of both historic Savannah and the Hilton Head Island resorts.

There are also over 12 miles of nature trails, making it easy for residents to enjoy the great outdoors.
Hilton Head Lakes’ private 155-acre lake is ideal for water sports and activities, such as boating, kayaking, canoeing, pontooning and fishing. A boat ramp and day docks make it easy for residents to enjoy the water, while lakeside home sites offer beautiful scenic views.

Hilton Head Lakes’ lovely scenery is further enhanced by its 18-hole, par 72 golf course. Designed by Tommy Fazio, who is considered by many golf aficionados the most knowledgeable golf course designer in the area of golf course construction, this challenging course stretches across 7,300 yards from its longest tees. Resident golfers can make good use of the 36-acre practice facility, as well, as it boasts practice greens, a target course and a par-3 short course. The golf clubhouse also contains a full-service pro shop and a casually elegant cafe. It is apparent why Hilton Head Lakes is considered one of the most prestigious South Carolina retirement communities in the area; with a name like Tommy Fazio attached to the community, what golf aficionado wouldn’t want to live here?
Beyond water sports and golf, Hilton Head Lakes was designed to provide a wide range of social and recreational activities.

Resort-style outdoor swimming pools, water slides and a lazy river make it easy to cool off while enjoying the South Carolina sunshine. Basketball and tennis courts encourage healthy activity and friendly competition, while playgrounds attract visiting grandkids who aren't interested in watching Grandpa play a successful round with his dear friend.
Indoors, the Lake Club features a fully-equipped fitness center, a game room and multipurpose meeting rooms. The catering kitchen is ideal for events or cooking class and the large second-story porch provides beautiful water views.
