Comprehensive Course and Pub Restoration
Pawleys Plantation will be closed from May 22nd to October 2nd
Pawleys Plantation will be closed, starting May 22nd, for a restoration project that will include a complete overhaul of the Jack Nicklaus design’s greens, bunkers and clubhouse. Founders Group International, Pawleys’ parent company, has contracted with Nicklaus Design and one of its design associates, Troy Vincent, to oversee the four-month long project.
Pawleys Plantation will still be open for all banquets, weddings, and private events during this time.
We will keep you updated, providing pictures and video of the progress being made so keep checking back, but in the interim, here some of the highlights:
– Every green complex and the surrounding fringe will be stripped, tilled and restored to its original specifications. Currently, Pawleys has 78,600 square feet of putting surface, a number that will jump to 117,000 square feet at the conclusion of the project, an increase of 48 percent.
– The new greens will feature TifEagle Bermudagrass, an ultradwarf strain that has performed exceedingly well at other FGI layouts, including the Grande Dunes Resort Course.
– In addition to the greens restoration, all bunkers will be reconstructed and the sprawling bunkers on holes 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 18 will be replaced by smaller fairway bunkers, native areas and expanded fairways, enhancing the course’s playability for mid to high handicappers without reducing the challenge for more skilled players.
– The project will also include the clubhouse, where the enhancements will be no less substantial. Pawleys Pub will be roomier, providing an expansive view of the 18th hole and the marsh, making it an ideal spot to enjoy lunch and a cold drink following a round. Plans also call for outdoor seating, allowing golfers the opportunity to enjoy the area’s idyllic weather and those unforgettable views.
Pawleys Plantation is slated to reopen in early October.
