Renovations and Redesigns: SC’s Newly Improved Golf Resorts

Title: Tee Time Transformed: Discover SC’s Newly Renovations and Redesigns in Golf Resorts

As a Myrtle Beach local, I exude a certain pride when talking about South Carolina’s world-class golf resorts. My heart fills with zest and anticipation as we traverse the scenic upgrades and impressive renovations made recently in some of the finest golf resorts in SC.

Our first stop brings us to the iconic True Blue Golf Resort. The team at True Blue has relentlessly poured their efforts into offering a modern and fresh course without displacing its original allure. This year, the resort introduced a significant enhancement— a restructured driving range. The range now flaunts a 30-bay driving area fitted with Toptracer technology. This cutting-edge tool not only marvels but aids golfers in tracking their swing data and ball flight. The venue also created covered areas, offering golfers reprieve from the summer heat or unexpected showers, inevitably rendering a more comfortable practice experience.

Deeper into our Myrtle Beach journey, we visit Dunes Golf and Beach Club. This classic Robert Trent Jones, Sr. design, brims with a new sense of prestige. A experts’ handiwork can be traced to the sculpted bunkers redesigned to counter erosion problems while enhancing the characteristics that golfers love about the course—a perfect balance between playability and challenge. An updated irrigation system guarantees less water usage and promotes healthier grass growth. Notable is the phenomenal clubhouse which now displays a modern-classic fusion motif, boasting elegant indoor and outdoor spaces, making Dunes Club just as perfect for events, as it is for golf.

Next, we meander through the Grand Strand to the TPC Myrtle Beach. In the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, this Tournament Players Club was engaged in a major overhaul to revitalize its greens. With new Sunday Bermuda grass now laid out, golfers can expect smoother and faster green surfaces. TPC Myrtle Beach has raised the bar for golf courses not only in South Carolina but even on an international scale.

Tiger’s Eye Golf Links, located in Sunset Beach, NC, just north of Myrtle Beach, also deserves a spot on this list. The resort replaced old Bermuda grass greens with ultradwarf Bermuda, transforming the putting surfaces completely. Besides a breathtaking view, golfers can now enjoy a challenging game on a lush course with strategically placed sand traps and sparkling lakes. Full-course renovations also include significant improvements to fairways and tee boxes, offering a captivating blend of the sun, surf, and sport.

No list would be complete without touching on the grandeur of Harbour Town Golf Links at the Sea Pines Resort, Hilton Head Island. With recently renovated luxury villifying the golf experience, Harbour Town Golf Links employed modern agronomic practices while preserving Pete Dye’s original course design. This hymn to golf history now holds new Diamond Zoysia greens, new irrigation and drainage systems, and significant architectural changes to five of its holes.

Also, fresh off the press is news about DuBose Golf Course in Summerton, SC. After 10 years, the course reopened in 2020 with several improvements to make it more player-friendly and economically viable. It is now a modern nine-hole short course that families and individuals of all ages can enjoy, with affordable playing options.

In conclusion, the realm of golf in South Carolina is teeming with innovation and renovation, promising unmatched golfing experiences for everyone. What keeps these resorts alive is not mere tradition but their ability to constantly evolve, respond to contemporary demands, and continuously garner the love of the game. South Carolina’s network of courses guarantees to offer something for golfers of all expertise levels, challenging, thrilling, and delighting in equal measures, creating more than a golf game—it’s an experience to remember.
