GOLF COURSE RENOVATION COMPLETED AT HAIG POINT

Posted on November 01, 2007

Rees Jones Restores His Original Design

Scottsdale, Arizona - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce the golf course renovation at Haig Point, located on Daufuskie Island, S.C., is now complete. Rees Jones, the original course architect, returned to restore the highly acclaimed Signature Course to its former prominence in the golf world and to bring it into the 21st century.

Renovation on the 20-hole Signature Course began in mid February of 2007 and was later completed in November of the same year. Jones' plan was not to completely reconfigure the course, which has appeared several times on Golf Digest's "America's 100 Greatest Courses" list, but to make improvements on what was already in place. These improvements include, greens restored to their original size and contour, more tee placements, improved bunker positioning, enhanced shot values and better overall playability. Jones used the natural lay of the land to dictate design features to restore the course to its original grandeur.

"The restoration project at Haig Point gives a clear direction to the bright future that awaits the golf course and the community," stated Mark Nordman, general manager of Haig Point. "The improvements, combined with excellent customer service and unparalleled playing surfaces, ensure a world-class experience for our members and guests."

Over the next four years, Haig Point will undergo several renovations in addition to the $5 million golf course renovation, including a $2.6 million upgrade to its ferry system, $2.35 million on a new beach club called The Calibogue Club and a world-class oceanfront dining facility, boasting incredible views of The Calibogue Sound and Harbour Town.

The essential character of Haig Point is that of an environmentally sensitive, architecturally distinguished, un-crowded community, which will not be compromised during renovation. The planned improvements will contribute to current Real estate offerings that range from charming cottages to villas to estate homes, offering something for everyone. The extra-large home sites provide an extraordinary choice of views - the broad Atlantic, the Calibogue Sound, the ever-changing seascapes of the surrounding saltwater marshes, or the soothing landscapes of manicured golf fairways and greens. Haig Point offers the ultimate in privacy, security and enjoyable everyday living, for those thinking about retirement or simply a second home.
