“Top HHead tennis resorts”

Van Der Meer Tennis Center
Reviewed June 26, 2012

VDMeer & seapines are both top quality facilities for midrange club players.
VDM has a 90 min drill daily ( had Louie yesterday, quite a card but good instruction as well)v
the hourly clinics at Seapines, where I,ve had a variety of instructors ,from good to excellent
But is more- $ 27 hr
Both have regular robins, the Monday's at seapines are a favorite, w/pros playing for fun after
Robin & free beer :-)
Similar set up at VDMeer, but Job, who runs Seapines is great for running commentary
One major bonus at VDMeer, no rainouts, as they have the only indoor courts (two locations!)
So you can plan on playing regardless of WX conditions.

My wife and I stay in Sea Pines, but do the 9-11 Van Der Meer advanced drills a couple times a week. We tried some of the other tennis facilities, but really enjoy Shipyard. Other clubs often use ball machines which we did not enjoy as much. Shellie is great and always conducts a great drill group. We will continue to return to this excellent facility.

This is a review of the Shipyard Van Der Meer tennis center, not the larger resort. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Shipyard, and were told by the hotel and by Van Der Meer Shipyard staff that we were allowed one free hour of tennis if we made a reservation.

So, we arrived to play ten minutes before our reserved court, only to be told by a different staffer that we did not have free tennis, and that making an appointment meant that we would be charged more! I couldn't believe it. She gave us a walk on rate of $18, but wouldn't honor the statement by the other employee (who was new) that we had a free hour of tennis.

So, our final assessment -- beautiful courts, but truly rude staff. This woman treated us terribly.

My wife and I recently returned from a doubles weekend, which included 10 hours of doubles drills and tactics' instruction. The three-day weekend cost about $200 per person, and was worthwhile. There were about 30 in our group, and the school had about eight pros. We each learned a lot, and would recommend the school. We booked our hotel through the school, and got a great deal at the nearby Players Club ($56 per night). The hotel was fine -- very clean and comfortable, and minutes from the school.
