Sapelo Hammock reopening shortly


Sapelo Hammock Golf Club, located near the Georgia coast in the southern US, which has been closed since June 2010 for renovation and is now managed by Billy Casper Golf, will celebrate its grand reopening in early September.

“The story of Sapelo Hammock is one of local investors coming together to revitalise the golf course and local economy,” said Mike Hardy, president of Shellman Bluff Investors, the course’s owner. “More than 70 investors have committed to making Sapelo Hammock a facility that will enhance the community and tourism in McIntosh County.”

Shellman Bluff embarked on a capital enhancement plan of re-turfing greens, re-design of several holes and enhanced agronomic and maintenance practices for even greater playability. The clubhouse décor was also updated.

Opened originally in 1998, Sapelo Hammock’s course runs along the Sapelo River and is routed through oak-lined fairways with marsh views.
