> More community information: Callawassie Island, Callawassie Island
Set in the Carolina Lowcountry, Callawassie Island is a gated island community offering world-class Tom Fazio golf and a full complement of amenities. A half-mile causeway provides a relaxing approach to the island, where peace and quiet are as plentiful as vibrant activity.
Encompassing 26,000 sf of Lowcountry style, the Callawassie clubhouse offers a fine blend of casual and formal dining areas. The clubhouse complex includes a swimming pool overlooking the marsh, with the golf practice area, pro shop, tennis center and fitness center nearby. Final touches are bocce and croquet courts and a horseshoe pit.
Tom Fazio’s 27-hole Callawassie Island golf course takes advantage of a lush natural environment to create intriguing visual drama as well as excellent playability. As one of the master architect’s earliest designs, the course meanders intimately along the river and salt marshes in a way that environmental regulations make difficult today.
The River Club
Overlooking the beautiful Colleton River, the Callawassie Island River Club provides a casual gathering place for friends and neighbors. Noteworthy features are the library and fireplace inside, and the family swimming pool, sundeck and fire pit area outside. The River Club docks offer community boat tie-ups and slips, as well as deep-water access to the Colleton River and Port Royal Sound.
