Sea Pines C.C. wins recognition

Sea Pines Country Club Again Awarded Distinguished Club Status

Esteemed Designation Bestowed upon the Top Private Clubs in America

HILTON HEAD, S.C.Sea Pines Country Club, the only private club located in Sea Pines Plantation, has again received the Distinguished Club recognition by BoardRoom magazine.

The Distinguished Clubs program uses an exclusive rating system that recognizes facilities, management and staff based on a top-tier member experience. Sea Pines Country Club continues to exceed service, staff quality and club governance standards. Only 189 out of 3,400 private clubs in America have been awarded this status.


“We’d like to give a big round of applause to Sea Pines County Club for earning Distinguished Club standing,” said John Fornaro, publisher of BoardRoom magazine. “The club’s board of directors, department heads, staff and General Manager Robbie Ames should be praised for providing a first-rate member experience year after year.”

Sea Pines Country Club features world-class golf, tennis, pools and dining. In July, the club celebrated its newly unveiled state-of-the-art fitness facility. The 7,300-square-foot space now offers a comprehensive wellness experience, allowing members of all ages to achieve their personal health goals.

Additional pre- and post- workout amenities include infrared saunas, massage therapy, a café dedicated to healthy fare, and an expanded list of popular fitness classes. An indoor and outdoor pool makeover has also modernized the saline indoor pool, 24-meter outdoor pool and deck, and brand-new children’s splash pool.

“Our club’s top priority is always to provide an exceptional experience for our members,” Ames said. “Our board of directors, staff and particularly our members create a unique environment that allows us to strive for excellence every day.”
