The first off-island, quietly spacious plantation community past the bridge from Hilton Head is Moss Creek Plantation. It borders Mackay’s Creek on one side, a huge nature preserve on the other, and allows for a variety of house and condo views including water, woods, marshes, and the marina. Featuring over 1,000 acres of private, gated residential neighborhood, Moss Creek has two 18-hole Tom Fazio golf courses, a playground by the docks and the dockside swimming pool, fitness center, tennis, the Fording Island Nature Preserve, an Equestrian Center, and an equity membership included with purchase of property.
Moss Creek’s developers planned a community that would provide residents with a blend of gated privacy and Lowcountry beauty. It competes among Hilton Head Island plantations in its appeal to nature-lovers who desire a plantation lifestyle. Residences take up less than half of the community’s total area to allow sufficient space for nature. Lush vegetation throughout the low-density neighborhood was preserved to compliment Moss Creek’s appeal. Property owners chose to make Moss Creek’s two championship-caliber 18-hole golf courses and the rest of their community property owner exclusive.
Membership and access to all of the community’s amenities come with the purchase of Moss Creek property.A few minutes’ drive from the gate down the main road is a fabulous 14,000-square-foot community clubhouse for dining overlooking the water, meeting and event rooms, and the golf club.
Moss Creek golf includes two Par-72 Tom Fazio courses stretching throughout the entire neighborhood – the North and the South Devil’s Elbow 18 hole courses. The North course features over 6,500 yards of Bermuda grass and the South course is just under 6,900 yards. Tennis is immensely popular at Moss Creek, and it is played on seven Har-Tru courts.
A few minutes past the Clubhouse is the marina. A community dock provides space for boats to be tied along its floating piers. A boat launch and trailer parking are available for owners who prefer not to leave their boats in the water. There is deep water creek access from the docks to the area’s major waterways.
Moss Creek residents have access to the community’s newly renovated and gorgeous pool facility, with two large, heated pools. The Fitness Center overlooks the pools, the marina, and the water. Also in this area is a large playground complete with a tree house, two docks, a picnic area, and bulletin boards announcing community events and clubs like the Moss Creek Yacht Club. The Fitness Center has the most up-to-date exercise equipment and a full schedule of fitness classes and personal training.
Moss Creek has a 24-hour guard gate, and non-residents must have a pass from residents to gain access.
