Wexford | Hilton Head, South Carolina
General Manager

About the Club
Established in 1983, Wexford is nestled amidst 525 acres of Lowcountry landscapes in Hilton Head, South Carolina. It is a highly acclaimed, member-owned boating, golf, tennis and pickleball residential community. The community is home to a 37-acre inland harbour with a lock system (one of only three on the east coast), a distinctive Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course, championship tennis and pickleball center with six Har-Tru clay courts, four pickleball courts and a  pro shop. Other amenities include 24-hour gated security, two swimming pools, croquet lawn, basketball court, children’s playground, miles of bike and leisure trails and an elegant clubhouse. All property owners at Wexford are members of the Wexford Yacht Club, offering reciprocity benefits with other Yachting Clubs of America. Membership at Wexford is reserved exclusively for property owners and is included with ownership. There are 460 properties in the community and approximately 60% of the membership lives in Wexford on a full-time basis. Residents of Hilton Head enjoy a mild, subtropical climate all year round.

Overlooking the harbour, the Clubhouse is the social center for the community and is operational from Tuesday through Sunday. Wexford recently opened an expansive aquatic complex that provides great opportunity for creating special events and dining overlooking the area of the harbour. Members can enjoy lunch and dinner service in the Waterford Room, Sunroom, Pub Dining Room and Bar area. The Golf Pro Shop is located inside the Clubhouse and the pool complex is just steps away.

Annual dues are $7 million, total revenue is approximately $5.5 million with food and beverage generating $1.7 million. There are approximately 100 staff members employed year-round and a total number of 460 memberships today.
