Colleton River is more than championship golf in a lush coastal South Carolina setting or a unique golf course landscape. It’s a vibrant community of family members and friends who appreciate getting together for incredible tennis, fabulous water sports, and to celebrate everything from traditional holidays to cultural activities. With 1,500 acres of unspoiled land-surrounded on three sides by rivers and marshes and the fourth side adjoining the nature preserve of Victoria Bluff – Colleton River is a nature lover’s paradise.
Enjoy the miles of walking and biking trails that weave their way from one end of the plantation to the other, and are enveloped by warm Southern breezes, shaded by stately live oaks and palms, and mesmerized by pristine waterways – all at Colleton River Plantation.The northwest boundary of Colleton River Plantation is a tidal-controlled estuary full of salt marshes, tidal creeks and islands. Boating is a popular pastime, or members can fish, crab or shrimp directly from the members’ dock.
If golf is your passion, then welcome to your very own private paradise at Colleton River.

The Dye Clubhouse is charmingly reminiscent of a southern plantation home and totally in keeping with the natural beauty of South Carolina’s Low country. The two-story structure has 18-foot-wide porches accessed through French doors, with large columns, brick arches and tabby stucco exteriors.Inside, there is a member’s bar and casual dining area, a large, more formal dining room and several smaller breakout rooms. The lower level houses the golf shop, locker rooms and the Club’s library.From its wraparound porches members can enjoy spectacular views of the Chechessee River and Port Royal Sound, the marshlands, ancient live oaks, seabirds and seven of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful holes in all of the southern United States.

Many homes have their own private deep-water docks, and Colleton River recently built a new community dock, which includes a kayak rack and launch, fish cleaning station, and room for overnight docking.

For freshwater fishing, there is an abundance of large-mouth bass, catfish and crappie in the dozens of tranquil lagoons scattered throughout the plantation.
