Colleton River Plantation Club was originally established in 1990 by the Colleton River Development Company, the same principals who own and operate such esteemed properties as The Sanctuary at Kiawah, The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville and the Inn at Harbour Town in Hilton Head.
In establishing Colleton River, the developers had one vision: to be one of the finest residential club communities in the country. This vision was recognized in 2009 with Colleton River Plantation Club being awarded the Platinum Club Award in recognition as one of the Top 15 Private Residential Communities in the United States. This award is given out every three years based on the survey results of over 6,000 private clubs belonging to the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA). It ranks clubs based on quality of membership, tradition and culture, amenities, governance, and quality of management and staff. Voting requirements to distinguish America's most highly admired private clubs include: a history of excellence, quality of membership, condition of facilities, caliber of professional staff, enlightened and consistent governance, adaptable to changing times, member devotion to the club's distinctive culture, spirit of generosity in the community, prudent fiscal management and universal acknowledgement of greatness.
The mission of the Colleton River Plantation Club is to attract and retain members who are committed to our vision by providing exceptional services, superior facilities and a friendly atmosphere; attract and retain an outstanding staff by providing competitive benefits and pay, recognizing excellent performance, and creating a learning and caring environment; and support our community by encouraging participation in charitable, civic and cultural activities.
