Haig Point lies to the north end of Daufuskie Island, across the Calibogue Sound from Harbour Town on Hilton Head Island. Whilst both spots are beautiful and scenic, the isolation of Haig Point adds privacy to its allure. Rees Jones set out a course here for a private residential community in 1987, returning to completely renovate the layout twenty years later when he reconstructed all the tees, greens and bunkers.

Interestingly, the tight tree-lined, creek-laden course can be played in two different configurations: the “Calibogue” tees require forced carry shots to be played over wetland and coastal marsh areas, whilst the “Haig Point” tees use the same holes but do not demand the same difficult carries.

There are also a couple of extra holes, one on each nine, which are used in conjunction with these two different sets of tees. The longer version at the par three 8th plays to an island green across the salt marshes, with its 17th hole equivalent playing to a green adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean.

Stand out holes include the long par five 4th, with its fabulous oak tree backdrop, and the par five 14th, which is the architect’s favourite: “[It has] been ranked as one of the top 99 holes in America,” said Rees Jones, “[and] we had to get an environmental okay on that because there's a little high piece of ground between two wetlands, where the green is placed.”
