The project at the Johns Island, S.C. club includes the grand opening of the Robert C. McNair Performance Center, the addition of three on-site guest cottages, and a total renovation of the club’s golf course. Majority owner Bob McNair, a businessman, philanthropist and owner of the Houston Texans, passed away in November 2018.
The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek in Johns Island, S.C. announced a two-year, $6-million plan for upgrades and renovations to the club’s golf course and facilities. The private golf club is majority-owned by McNair Interests, a private investment and management company founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Robert C. “Bob” McNair, who died in November 2018.
Cary McNair, Bob’s son and the current Chairman and CEO of McNair Interests, announced that the club is making the multimillion-dollar investment, which includes the grand opening of the Robert C. McNair Performance Center, the addition of three on-site guest cottages, and a total renovation of the club’s golf course.
“The planned upgrades and renovations to the course and facilities will elevate the club to a new level that reflects the promise to continue my father’s vision for a club he cared for deeply,” said Cary McNair. “With these improvements, we hope to solidify Briar’s Creek’s commitment to excellence for its members.”
In 2015, club member Bob McNair led an investment group in the purchase of Briar’s Creek. Since then, the club has welcomed more than 100 new members and enjoys a current membership roster that allows for the club to maintain its no-tee-time policy.
“Briar’s Creek provides the best golf experience in the Lowcountry, hands down,” said Mike Lata, a club member and the James Beard award-winning chef and co-owner at Charleston, S.C. restaurants FIG and The Ordinary. “The facilities are excellent, and the hospitality is unparalleled.”
Club enhancements are already underway, with others planned in the near future. The new Performance Center will be unveiled in June 2019, while cottage construction and course renovation will take place in the spring and summer of 2020, respectively.
