Many people enjoy golfing holidays overseas
A South Carolina golf resort is looking to rival the facilities at well-known US courses such as Kiawah Island and TPC Sawgrass after unveiling plans for a 12 million-dollar renovation to create a 'premier golf experience'.
The Sea Pines resort is to carry out the work on the Plantation Club which overlooks the Ocean and Pete Dye-designed Heron Point courses. British golf fanatics who think nothing of getting
sports travel insurance and jetting off to the cream of courses Stateside are sure to be attracted by the plans for a new two-storey clubhouse with wood-shingled roof and Savannah grey brick which were shown to the board of directors for Community Services Associates Inc. (CSA).
President of Sea Pines Real Estate and CSA board member Craig Ostergard said the clubhouse would match what Sawgrass and the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort have to offer. If built, the 16,000 sq ft facility would include a large golf pro shop, larger locker rooms, sizeable meeting and reception space, a modern bar and grill, snack bar and improved parking, according to president of Sea Pines Resort Steve Birdwell, who presented the plans to the Association of Sea Pines Plantation Property Owners' board of directors. The plans have yet to be approved by the town or Sea Pines' Architectural Review Board.
