Country Club of Hilton Head: Where the Action Is
Author: Linda Hopkins
When you think of a country club, what do you envision? If you are picturing stodgy old men swilling cocktails in a stuffy atmosphere, you haven’t experienced the Country Club of Hilton Head.
Cocktails and relaxation are certainly a part of the club experience, and Country Club of Hilton Head offers a variety of dining services and social events. But it’s the sports and fitness amenities that are drawing the interest of those who want a little or a lot more action in their lives. Serving everyone from retirees to young professionals and families with children, Country Club of Hilton Head is making an all-out effort toward meeting the diverse needs of its membership while providing the ultimate in private country club living.
Toward that end, adding to its picturesque, 18-hole Rees Jones championship golf course and full-service tennis program, Country Club of Hilton Head has recently opened the doors to a magnificent new fitness facility. Members of all ages are excited about the 5,300 square foot state-of-the-art gym. The facility features all new Technogym equipment, including treadmills, elliptical trainers, stair climbers, recumbent bikes, upright bikes and more—everything you need for a complete and varied cardio workout. Continue your workout with a complete circuit of weight machines to safely and effectively tone, strengthen and shape every muscle group.
If you think exercise is tedious, torturous or boring, get ready for a more modern experience. Enjoy the flat screen televisions mounted around the room, or tune in your channel of choice via televisions built into each cardio machine.
Whether you are a seasoned “gym rat” or just beginning to contemplate an exercise program, you’ll have no problem fitting right in. Friendly staff members and certified personal trainers are on hand to teach you how to use the equipment and can even design a personalized program to help you meet your individual fitness goals. If you prefer working out with a group, you’ll find a variety of aerobic and weight training classes, including yoga and pilates.
Good news for parents! While you’re busy getting your daily exercise, you’ll no longer have to worry about what your children are doing. The club is providing a supervised play room, free of charge, with a two-hour limit, allowing you uninterrupted time with peace of mind.
Adding to the enjoyment of your fitness routine is the opportunity for the whole family to sun or swim. The club offers an outdoor pool, deck and snack bar as well as a junior Olympic-size indoor pool for laps, water aerobics and other aquatic-based exercise programs. Swimming instruction is available on a group, semi-private and private basis with appropriate classes offered for children ages 4 and up as well as for adults.
Shower, relax and dress in pristine locker rooms. Top it all off with a light lunch or hearty meal in the pub or make reservations for a gourmet dinner in the beautifully appointed Grille room.
Elegant, yet unpretentious, discover the ambiance, amenities and camaraderie that make Country Club of Hilton Head “the place to be.”
