The golf course at Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head Island, S.C., was closed for renovations over the summer, with enhancements including regrassed tee boxes, fairways and rough with Celebration Bermuda, resurfaced greens, and the installation of a new irrigation system.
The Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head Island, S.C., is opening its Harbour Town Golf Links today, following a series of enhancements over the summer.
Harbour Town, designed by Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus design, closed in early May, shortly after completion of the 2015 PGA TOUR RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing. Modifications include comprehensive regrassing of the tee-boxes, fairways and rough with Celebration Bermuda.
Harbour Town’s greens were resurfaced with Tif-Eagle Bermuda, the same grass used on the putting surfaces since 2001. A new irrigation system was also installed, improving the year-round conditioning and playability of the course.
“These enrichments to Harbour Town Golf Links will insure its status as one of most coveted places to tee it up in the world,” says Cary Corbitt, Vice President of Sports & Operations. “Our members, guests and PGA TOUR professionals will enjoy the faster and firmer conditions which place an even higher premium on shot making.”
Completing the “new look” of the Harbour Town golf experience is the Harbour Town Clubhouse which opened in March. The 44,000-sq. ft. multi-use structure features a living room lounge, Links (an American grill with indoor/outdoor seating and golf course views), signature pro shop and retail display, wrap-around terraces with covered porches, 4,000-sq. ft. locker room, and the Heritage Room (a 2,200-sq. ft. banquet and event room on the top floor).
