It is always fun when we head to Sandpiper Bay Golf and Country Club for an update on Tee It Up Grand Strand. There is plenty to talk about this time as we catch up with PGA Head Professional, Brett Thomaswick in the clubhouse. And that is a great place to start…the clubhouse.
Renovations are about to get underway on the clubhouse at Sandpiper Bay. This is very exciting for Brett and his entire staff as their “office” is about to to get a facelift. This quite large building is getting all new carpeting throughout the golf shop, the dining and bar area, and the offices. Additionally, the entire facility is getting a lighting upgrade that will brighten up the place. (We crack ourselves up).
The golf course itself is going through some cosmetic changes as well. The superintendent and his crew have been hard at work the past few months. They removed 100 more trees to improve air flow and make for better views around the course. It also lends to more sunlight that will contribute to better grass growth and even better playing conditions. This is a major win for golfers visiting Sandpiper Bay. The course is always in great shape to begin with and now it will be better!
While many golf courses in the area over-seed their fairways and tee boxes for the winter season, the management at Sandpiper Bay decided they would not this year. It changes the look of the course during the cooler weather but it also means that as soon as the warm spring weather gets to southeast North Carolina, the golf course will be plush and green very quickly.
Brett and his staff are extremely excited about all the changes the golf course and clubhouse are going through as we kick off 2017. It will look nearly like a new place for golfers that are familiar with Sandpiper Bay. The updating to the clubhouse is needed and will definelty make an already great facility look better and provide an even better experience for the guests and membersWe are excited to be heading to Sandpiper Bay Golf and Country Club in February for the Grand Strand Golf Directors Association outing. We will get a chance first hand to play the course and experience the changes. It will be fun and we cannot wait.
