A few notes about the island - We are club members which means that the Club amenity cards are available for purchase.  The Fripp Island Club requires amenity cards for you to frequent their amenities. These amenities include golfing, playing tennis, going to the restaurants on Fripp, going to the swimming pools and the fitness room.  The amenity card prices for stays that are 1-4 days are $35 during the summer months and $25 during Fall, Winter and Spring.  The amenity card prices for stays that are 5-8 days are $50 during the summer months and $35 during Fall, Winter and Spring.


A new 12.8% of the total rent resort fee will be charged in addition to the cost of the individual club cards for access to the resort amenities.


Each guest 13 years or older must carry an amenity card to access the Club's facilities.  There are a few places on Fripp Island that you do not need an amenity card. SpringTide Market is at the front of the island that has a large menu at their deli. From breakfast sandwiches to family BBQ meals, there is a lot to choose from. There is also a deli at the Marina that serves sandwiches and salads. The Fripp Ship and Mango stores are fun to go into for your perfect souvenir.
