Belfair: Neighborhood Spoghtlight
Belfair is a private golf community located in Bluffton, South Carolina. Upon entry, one is greeted with a drive down the stunning Avenue of Oaks. These trees were planted in 1927 by then owner, William Mosely Swain. Originally the area was a working agriculture estate established by William Telfair and Betsey Bellinger. The married couple combined their last names to come up with the moniker ‘Belfair’. After various iterations of farm life, the land made the transition to a world-class gated community in 1994.
There is a total of 730 homesites in Belfair, each one more magnificent than the last. The majority of homesites boast either water views or golf course views. The community has two fantastic golf courses designed by Tom Fazio. The East Course was designed with the links style game of golf in minds, whereas the West Course was created as a parkland-type course. Belfair was privileged to be chosen as the host of the 2019 PGA Professional Championship, the world’s largest all-professional golf event.
