In April, the club will be shutting down its golf course for renovation with the plan to reopen as an Arnold Palmer Signature Course the first week of October.
Arnold Palmer Design Company (APDC) has been chosen to put its design stamp on the Wexford Plantation Golf Course on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.
The 18-hole Wexford course was originally designed by Willard C. Byrd and opened in 1983. Featuring five sets of tee boxes that offered a short course of 4,800 yards up to 6,887 yards from the longest tees for a par of 72, the tight, tree-lined design of the golf course winds through the plantation and through the years has provided a meticulously maintained, scenic tour.
Wexford celebrated its first 25 years in the spring of 2008 and recently spent $3.9 million renovating its Coastal-style clubhouse. In April, the club will be shutting down its golf course for renovation with the plan to reopen as an Arnold Palmer Signature Course the first week of October.
Jim VanBuren, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer at Wexford, said work will begin on the Wexford driving range and golf practice area—mirroring the renovation of the golf course—by adding improved tee space and target greens, and improving visibility.
“Wexford has a very diverse membership,” VanBuren said. “We have plenty of working families and 100-plus children, so our summers are busy. We want a golf course where three generations of members can play and have fun.”
