In 1984, internationally acclaimed Tom Fazio was commissioned to fulfill our dream: "Design and construct a breathtaking Masterpiece of Beauty, Challenge and Playability”.
The site - 700 acre 18th century rice plantations abutting the Waccamaw River, replete with spectacular Spanish moss draped giant oaks - was considered the most magnificent property in the Carolina Lowcountry. The site was the perfect palate for Mr. Fazio to apply his genius and craft a true gem . . . and that he did!
The course was immediately recognized, and named the best golf course of the more than 100 championship courses along Grand Strand; this accolade being the first of many prestigious awards to come.
