The Sea Pines Resort Announces Harbour Town Golf Links Opens Sept. 28
Harbour Town – the seminal Pete Dye / Jack Nicklaus design – closed in early May shortly after completion of the 2015 PGA TOUR RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing. Modifications include comprehensive re-grassing of the tee boxes, fairways and rough with Celebration Bermuda, the most technologically-advanced turf used on warm season courses.
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 that takes advantage of the latest science in water management and control. The year-round conditioning and playability of the course will be significantly improved.
“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-square-foot multi-use structure features a comfortable living room lounge, Links – a first-class American grill with indoor / outdoor seating and sweeping golf course views, signature pro shop and retail display, wrap-around terraces with covered porches, state-of-the-art 4,000-square-foot locker room, and the Heritage Room – an elegant 2,200-square-foot banquet and event room on the top floor.
