Moss Creek - The Best Club Value in the Lowcountry
When you compare private golf communities in the Bluffton area you have to put Moss Creek near the top of the list as having the best value. I look at real estate everyday. If I’m not showing property then I’m previewing homes and homesites to see what might be new on the market. If someone is looking for a private golf club in the Bluffton market they are probably going to look at Berkeley Hall, Belfair, Colleton River and Hampton Hall. I’m certainly not knocking any of the above, all I am saying is that Moss Creek is a very good value. My clients like different golf communities for different reasons. It just gets down to what are you looking for?
Moss Creek began in 1973. So, you will find older homes in the community. Very similar in style to Hilton Head Plantation. Moss Creek also has newer homes. Full discloser here——My wife and I live in Moss Creek and we really enjoy everything it has to offer! There are over 50 in-house clubs and related interest groups that keep everyone very busy. Friday night happy hour is a must!
We actually stayed through Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 when there was a mandatory evacuation. We witnessed Moss Creek’s finest hour. They were right on it! The clean-up went very smoothly! The power was not off very long and they had their own water storage tower which came in very handy! They clearly had a plan.
The location? Wow, is all I have to say. When you leave Moss Creek you can turn right and be in downtown Bluffton in minutes. If you turn left the bridge to Hilton Head is right there!
There really isn’t much of a comparison because of the package Moss Creek offers and at what price. Consider the following amenities in Moss Creek:
