About Tega Cay, SC

The new police station is on Tega Cay Drive near the entrance to the peninsula. The newer, modern clubhouse and Glennon Community Center are located in the center of the city and include a restaurant, bar, and Golf Pro-Shop. Diners may sit inside, or outside on the veranda overlooking the golf course. The new Tega Cay Elementary School is also at the entrance to the peninsula. Many children have the fun of being safely delivered to school by golf carts. And Fridays are designated as "Walk or Ride Your Bike To School" days. This is not mandatory. But many kids do this every day. There are sidewalks, bike trails, crosswalks and Crosswalk guards for safety.
