Renovations Wrapping Up

Golf Course renovationAround the Grand Strand, summer renovation projects for local golf courses are coming to a close as the cooler weather settles in. However, there have been two new courses that have reentered the Myrtle Beach market, as well as Ocean Isle Beach areas. After being closed for 22 months, Brick Landing in Ocean Isle will reopen by the end of October. Quail Creek Golf Club at Coastal Carolina University reopened to public play on October 3, 2011. Craig Schreiner, who is the co-designer of the Members Club at Grande Dunes, appointed renovations at Pine Lakes Country Club and oversaw most of the changes at Quail Creek. Changes to all 19 greens, including the practice putting green, were rebuilt with the fine-bladed and popular Mini-Verde ultra dwarf Bermuda grass and 60 bunkers were removed around both fairways and greens. The remaining 36 bunkers were also rebuilt. According to Charlie Thrash, the Quail Creek general manager and director of the CCU Professional Golf Management Program, “the greens have more movement, undulation and personality than they had before, and they’re a better quality with Mini-Verde.” In addition to the 6,900 yards of green, a short game area was built between the 10th tee and the 18th green, which is only accessible for CCU’s golf teams and students in the PGM program.
