Long Cove Club plantation is situated between Yacht Cove and Wexford Plantation toward the island’s south end. Within Long Cove are 569 homes. Golf Digest magazine has rated Long Cove Club’s private golf course, designed by Pete Dye and recently renovated, the number one course in South Carolina for 10 consecutive years. A membership to this challenging golf course is included with ownership in Long Cove club. In the 1980s, the plantation’s developers chose to carefully preserve the area’s live oaks, magnolia and palmetto palm trees, which create a serene, wooded environment in which its signature golf course is nestled. In addition to the golf course, a new tennis center was opened in 2002. Residents enjoy deepwater access to Broad Creek from the community’s boat docks.
