Tega Cay

The City of Tega Cay is located on a peninsula on Lake Wylie twenty miles south of Charlotte’s Center City and five miles north of downtown Rock Hill. The name Tega Cay is Polynesian for “Beautiful Peninsula.”  This planned community was formed in 1970 on 1,600 wooded acres of land  previously owned by Duke Power Company.  Tega Cay is known for its golf courses and conference center.  The developer carried out the Polynesian theme everywhere from street names, home design, clubhouse décor and even the guard shack, making the community feel very resort-like. In the fall of 2000, the City annexed three new areas consisting of Stonecrest, Crescent and Nivens Creek Landing which brought the first planned retail and commercial properties to the city along with townhomes and apartments. This family oriented and active adult community is a great place to call home for people who love the outdoors and to celebrate with friends and neighbors.  Annual activities include street and water parades, free summer concerts, fairs and festivals, organized sports, 27 holes of golf, eight lighted tennis courts, a beach and swim center, miles of walking trails, a marina, three boat launching areas, five waterfront parks and three interior parks/playgrounds.
