Golf Course Spotlight: the recently renovated Brunswick Plantation
Golfers choose MyrtleBeachGolf.net to help them book stay & play packages at some of the Grand Strand’s best golf courses, including Brunswick Plantation, now a true star on the North Strand following a series of improvements made to the golf course and its amenities.
Brunswick Plantation is a 27-hole facility located just a short drive north of Myrtle Beach, near Calabash, N.C. Each of its three nines – each designed by Willard Byrd and Clyde Johnston, two legendary golf course architects on the Strand – has a completely different feel. The Azalea layout tests players off the tee with tough angles and the occasional forced carry, while still providing plenty of opportunities to score well when played from the correct set of tees. The Dogwood layout is more open, offering plenty of tempting opportunities to cut corners and shorten doglegs. Magnolia is more open as well and not overly long, making it the perfect nine for those looking to shoot a personal best.
As good as these layouts were before, Brunswick Plantation should be quite proud of the recent improvements it has made to its three nines. The course received a facelift a couple of years ago when a new ownership group took over. Improvements included the addition of 300 new trees, 2,000 azaleas and 3,000 ornamental grasses, as well as new bridges and three new sand bunkers. Meanwhile, several preexisting grass bunkers were reshaped.
In addition, upgrades in the clubhouse included re-carpeted/re-tiled flooring, fresh painting and enhancements in the pro shop, all making a wonderful impression on the Myrtle Beach golf community. See what one person who played after new ownership took over said on the course’s TripAdvisor page:
“One of the prettiest facilities I have ever played on. Phenomenal facility. Course was in amazing shape even with the rain and weather, pro shop well-organized and food at restaurant was VERY affordable and tasty!”
