From the onset, the creators of Oldfield have sought to build upon those elements which contribute to the ambience of the great plantations. They toured wonderful country homes and gardens throughout the Lowcountry identifying and incorporating those special elements, which help to give Oldfield the special feeling that we now enjoy.
The notion of a Lowcountry life lived well is woven throughout the myriad of amenities that Oldfield has to offer its residents and guests. This intentional and thoughtful style of development created unique lifestyle opportunities, that would have otherwise been overlooked in the cookie cutter methodology of development that is so typical of this era.
In addition to leveraging an a-la-carte membership model, Oldfield crafted programmed amenity opportunities unique to the Lowcountry. One such space, Oldfield’s Outfitter’s Center, is nestled among the oaks along the bank of the Okatie River and the fresh water River Pond. This architectural gem is home to some of the finest fishing, hunting, and nature programming in the Southeast.
In the end, however, the fabric of our community will not be woven around facilities, but people. Although Greg Norman worked his magic among the stunning marshes and century-old live oaks, Oldfìeld will offer far more than just great golf. It will be the warm smiles and caring service of the staff, which will be remembered most. It will be the interaction with the staff whether on the river, the golf course, tennis courts, or dining at the River Club that will make it special. Oldfield is more than a sum of its parts — a mystique born of careful attention to human interaction in the truest community sense. At the end of the day, it is the people of Oldfield who make it great.
Oldfield will offer select single family homes from the high $300Ks to over $2M. Thoughtfully distributed homesites will range in price based on size, location, and view. Architectural integrity is elemental to Oldfield’s character, and as such homes will be crafted in a manner to honor the Lowcountry’s aesthetic and practical traditions.
Inherent in each of us is a fundamental desire to connect; to connect with family, friends, and the natural beauty around us. At Oldfield, those fortunate enough to enjoy ownership have discovered a home where community is more than a sense of place – it is a sense of being connected. Beyond wellness, the sporting life, and golf, there is a rich and vibrant spectrum of activities for members to enjoy and share together. Whether it’s a boating caravan to Beaufort or Savannah on a lazy Saturday afternoon, a book club at the River House, a visit to the farmer’s market, Dolphin watching tours, local volunteering, or a nature walk guided by our resident naturalist… activities at Oldfield are as diverse as the rich ecology of its surroundings. Culinary offerings not only delight the senses, but create further opportunities for connectivity. Food and beverage is offered at the Golf Clubhouse, the River House, and at the Outfitter’s Center for special events. So whether it’s an evening of fine dining while overlooking the Okatie River, lunch at the Grill, or an oyster roast for a member gathering at the Outfitter’s Center, you’ll discover a warm and inviting atmosphere with friends and family. Residents often speak of “Oldfield Hospitality” fondly as they recount memories of social gatherings, civic service, and intercommunity outreach. It is a culture that is deeply ingrained in the fabric of this place. At its heart, Oldfield’s wide array of lifestyle choices are fundamentally about connecting you with the people you love and the things you love to do. –
