Hilton Head Island's Very Own "Venice"
Wexford is South Carolina's unique private golf community in that it offers yachting in its elaborate interior 37.5 acre harbour. Winding around the harbour is the exclusive 18-hole championship golf course. At the headwaters of the harbour and the start and finish of both nines is the Clubhouse complex consisting of the Clubhouse with fabulous dining options, a swimming pool, a lawn and racquet club, and a children's playground. Wexford takes great pride in its reputation as a friendly, active, family-oriented community. Instead of focusing on public resort facilities, the community offers a distinctive private lifestyle right in the midst of the Island's natural beauty and only a short bicycle ride to the beach.
The Venice Connection
Wexford's "Venice" connection distinguishes it from all other private golf club communities in the state. Just like the famed city of Venice in Italy, large canals weave through the entire community and residents can dock their yachts or boats behind their homes, travel out to the Intracoastal Waterway or visit fellow residents by boat. The canals are part of the singular, locked Wexford harbour that is free of tides.
A spectacular view of spacious, uniquely landscaped homes located on the glassy harbour will greet you as you enter the community. Right behind the homes, the large yachts and smaller boats are tied at each home's private harbour-front slip. Seven wonderfully designed stone bridges cross this harbour taking residents to their islands-in-the-harbour homes.
Golf at Wexford
The creative team that developed the community hired the services of renowned golf course architect and land planner Willard Byrd to conceive and design the course. Byrd drew his inspiration from the inland canals of Ireland, featured in a National Geographic article, to design the community and the course. He designed a concept for a lock-controlled harbour, enveloped by a beautiful golf course, and interspersed with residences.
As a result of Byrd's vision, homes in Wexford were designed to front either the harbour, the golf course, the marshes, or an interior lagoon. The architectural theme traces its roots back to the British West Indies, which is a reflection of the post-revolutionary war history of Hilton Head Island. Wexford possesses some of the most magnificent, refreshing home designs in the Hilton Head area. The joy here is relishing in the fact that no two homes are the same.
