Pine Lakes in Myrtle Beach due for changes
The “grandaddy” may be getting a makeover. Big changes are in store for Pine Lakes Country Club, the oldest course on the Grand Strand. Burroughs and Chapin Co., owners of the course, are proposing to add about 400 housing units, as well as re-designing the course,
I hope they don’t mess with it too much. The place is on the National Register of Historic Places, and sort of a shrine for Myrtle Beach Golf. There are hardly any houses along the course, which sits right in the middle of Myrtle Beach. It’s a scenic layout, with old pine trees and scattered lakes and ponds.
B&C’s proposal for the re-design would leave only six holes intact. That’s s shame, seeing it was founded in 1927 from a design by Robert White, a Scot who was the first president of the PGA of America. The proposal will go to the planning commission, which will pass on its recommenations to the city council.
This is becoming a disappointing trend in Myrtle Beach, where real estate has become so valuable, many courses are selling out to development. Stay tuned for the full story, coming soon.
