BEAUFORT, South Carolina – Cat Island Club has enjoyed a storied history since opening in 1985. The George Cobb-designed 18-hole championship golf course, resting on the southern tip of Cat Island near Beaufort, SC, opened to rave reviews and has continued to be a favorite semi-private golf course for the area residents and visitors.

Now, Cat Island Club is about to begin a new chapter. Resort Development Partners of Virginia recently purchased the beautiful property and made the decision to transform Cat Island into a fully private club. The Grand Opening of the new Cat Island Club was over the Memorial Day Weekend, with many activities on the schedule.

“The first time I saw the property, I knew it was ideal for a private club,” said W. Douglas White, principal of Resort Development Partners. “The residents of Cat Island have welcomed us the new owners, and our organization is respectful of the opportunity to enhance the lifestyle of Cat Island.”

The essence of Cat Island Club can be found in its natural environment, right in the heart of the Lowcountry. Whether it’s a salty breeze as you line up your next shot or the alligators protecting the 18th green, the character of the Cat Island Club is formed by the natural state of the island.

The Lowcountry and exceptional marshland views frame six of the challenging 18 holes, and its back-to-back waterfront par-3s are unique and spectacular.

Members, their families and guests now enjoy exceptional Club amenities.

“We have a lot of exciting things planned for Cat Island above and beyond what we have already accomplished,” said White. “This is a family-oriented cub but we have several different types of memberships and levels to meet any need. Among our objectives is to simply enhance what Mother Nature has created here at Cat Island.”
