When there is a situation that requires some type of intervention or response, who do you call? Sometimes it is confusing because there are three entities on Seabrook Island: Town of Seabrook Island, Seabrook Island Property Owners Association, and Seabrook Island Club.
The Town of Seabrook Island (TOSI) is responsible for the beach below the high tide line. To protect public safety and preserve the beach’s natural beauty, the Town Council has adopted a comprehensive list of beach rules, including requirements for pets. The town also provides the Beach Patrol, which renders a variety of services. If any medical or other emergency, such as drowning, occurs on the beach, call 911. If you see a violation of beach rules, call or text the Beach Patrol at (843) 718-6083. (Please note that permission to have a bonfire on the beach must be obtained from SIPOA. Click here for the Beach Fire Permit Application.)
Seabrook Island Property Owners Association (SIPOA) is responsible for Gate Access control and SIPOA rules compliance. Please do not call the Gate House unless an immediate response is needed (843-768-6641). Examples include a noise disturbance, a nuisance or danger involving wildlife, or a tree or other obstacle on the road. Instead, contact the SIPOA offices at (843) 768-0061 from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Monday through Friday or email firstname.lastname@example.org. In the case of a medical or other emergency, call 911.
Seabrook Island Club is responsible for the Golf Courses, Racquet Club, Beach Club pools, and Equestrian Center. If you see a rules violation on a golf course, such as people putting after hours, individuals dropping balls and playing a hole or two, or children playing ball on a green or fairway, call the Club’s Security Personnel at (843) 991-8700. Provide them with the name of the course, hole number, and any other pertinent information. In the case of unauthorized vehicles on the course, call the Club’s Security Personnel. In addition, get the LSV license number so that the Club can look up the owner and reach them personally. At the Beach Club, members should bring any concern directly to the attention of staff in real-time so that they can address it immediately. In the case of a medical or other emergency, call 911.
