Renovation work on the Harbour Town Golf Links at the Sea Pines Resort is nearing completion, with the course set to reopen in late September.

An agronomic enhancement project got underway at the Pete Dye-designed course in May 2015, shortly after Jim Furyk won the RBC Heritage competition on the course on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

Tee boxes, fairways and rough have been replaced with Celebration bermudagrass, while the course’s greens have been regrassed with Tif-Eagle bermudagrass.

A new irrigation system has also been installed as part of the project, which was overseen by MacCurrach Golf Construction.

“The enhancements to Harbour Town Golf Links will improve the year-round conditioning and playability of the course,” says Cary Corbitt, vice president of Sports and Operations at the Sea Pines Resort. “The stewardship of Pete Dye’s seminal design is important to us as we welcome our guests, members and PGA Tour players to enjoy one of the world’s most famous courses for many years to come.”
