Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head, S.C. plans to build new clubhouse

HILTON HEAD, S.C. -- The Sea Pines Resort -- Hilton Head's most celebrated leisure retreat and home of the PGA TOUR's RBC Heritage - announces plans for a new golf clubhouse serving its Heron Point and Ocean golf courses.

With completion slated for late 2013, the 16,000 square-foot clubhouse will reside on the site of the current Plantation Club and provide a premier golf experience for members and guests. Planned amenities include an expansive pro shop; bar and grill; 2,000 square-feet of meeting / event space; and spacious locker rooms.

The new clubhouse follows several revitalization projects at the acclaimed Lowcountry destination including: interior updates to the Harbour Town Conference Center; new cart paths on Harbour Town Golf Links; and marsh restoration off the shore of the famed 18th hole of Harbour Town. Plans have also been finalized for a new Sea Pines Resort Fitness Center to be located at the Shops at Sea Pines Center.

"The new clubhouse and our other resort enhancements continue our quest to remain one of the world's most distinguished resorts," says Steve Birdwell, President. "We continually seek ways to provide an extraordinary experience for our members and guests."

While golf is the focal point, The Sea Pines Resort features an array of world-class amenities including a focus on tennis. The Racquet Club boasts 23 clay courts and is ranked as one of the best in the U.S. Five miles of sweeping Atlantic beaches offer everything from sea-kayaking to fishing to surfing. The enchanted 605-acre Forest Preserve is ideal for horseback riding and hiking.

Its array of luxurious accommodations includes The Inn at Harbour Town -- an award-winning 60-room boutique hotel - as well as 300 villas and 100 rental homes.
