Designer Reese Jones was brought in to build the finest golf course on the southeastern coast.

The result was the loss of several thousand grand trees and the course closing for a year of renovation and redesign. The course re opened in 1991 semi-private golf club. Our customers now have the ability to play this spectacular golf course at a moderate price.
