(RELEASE) - Golf courses around the Carolinas are doing their best to return to play as quickly as possible following the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Matthew, which swept up the Southeast coast during the weekend.
Talamore Resort, Pinehurst, N.C.
The New Course at Talamore and the Mid South Club are open in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. All club facilities at The Mid South Club and the Talamore Clubhouse are fully operational.
Outer Banks, N.C.
An outstanding selection of fun and affordable yet quality golf courses are helping transform the Outer Banks into a mini-Mecca sportsman’s paradise. The three OBX courses on the Currituck mainland, including The Carolina Club, Kilmarlic Golf Club and The Pointe, plan to reopen Tuesday. On the barrier island, the Currituck Club and Nags Head Golf Links experienced more flooding and hope to resume operations soon.
McConnell Golf, N.C./S.C.
McConnell Golf owns a dozen 18-hole, private golf courses plus one nine-hole course around the southeast. Impacted courses experienced some downed trees, debris and heavy rain. Raleigh Country Club, TPC Wakefield Plantation and Brook Valley Country Club in Greenville, N.C. — which are normally closed on Mondays — are reopening on Tuesday. Down along the South Carolina coast in the Myrtle Beach area, the Grande Dunes Members Course should reopen Wednesday and The Reserve on Wednesday or Thursday. McConnell Golf manages Grande Dunes Members Club and Ocean Club for LStar Development.
There are eight reasonably priced gems within 20 minutes of Santee and another 10 courses within 40 minutes. Lake Marion Golf Club has reopened, Santee National will open 9 holes Tuesday and Santee Cooper Country Club should also welcome play Tuesday.
