A golf course in South Carolina has completed a major restoration project
A popular golf course in South Carolina's Little River is ready to welcome back players after undergoing an extensive refurbishment.
Everything from greens, tees and bunkers to the drainage system has been refurbished at the Cypress Bay Golf Club under the massive restoration project.
But before enthusiasts pack their golf bags and head off to try the new course, they should arm themselves with a good
sports travel insurance cover.
The club's bosses say the refurbishment was part of efforts to return to the "glory years" when the course was recognised as one of the best in the area.
"It's a major undertaking but we feel we have the product and we're positive if we provide the quality of course and service we can accomplish our goals," said general manager Gene Blanton.
Cypress Bay now has larger greens, re-sodded tees, reshaped bunkers and smoother cart paths. New white silica sand has been introduced and irrigation extended throughout the course.
Trees have been trimmed to improve the views and pine straw used for ground covering to add to the beauty of the course.
