In the late 1700s, the owner of Spring Island chose a site (today’s Old Tabby Ruins) for his home. The same Port Royal Sound panorama enjoyed back then remains one of the Lowcountry’s most beautiful landscapes. Add the view of the Old Tabby Link’s 18th green to 16 Tabby Links Lane’s convenient proximity to the golf house, and you have one of the most desirable locations on Spring Island.
Originally designed as a residence, the home served initially as Spring Island Club’s Golf House until the present facility was constructed. Those who recall the early days at Spring Island have fond memories of sitting on the porch, recounting the day’s events and enjoying the stunning views.
Of all of the home’s magnificent areas, the living room best captures its classic and uncomplicated architecture.
