Long Cove History

Founded on the principles of private, single-family residential living

In 1976, David Ames, Joseph Webster III and Weston Wilhelm created Development Associates Inc., to create a cutting-edge private golf community. At that time, Sea Pines, Port Royal, Shipyard and Palmetto Dunes stood as gated resort and residential communities on Hilton Head, yet most of the golf courses were public. Founded on the principles of private, single-family residential living, removed from resort activities, Long Cove began selling lots in August 1980. The back nine of the famed golf course opened in November 1981, with the front nine following in Spring 1982. In 1985, Long Cove Club was ranked by Golf Digest as one of the Top 20 Golf Courses in the United States.
