New Golf Clubs Emerging in the Sandbelt Region of the Carolinas and Georgia



A recent surge of golf course construction in the Sandbelt region of the Carolinas and Georgia has given rise to a collection of unique and noteworthy clubs. These new clubs offer a diverse array of courses, attracting attention from golf enthusiasts and architects alike.

Located in Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina, the project spearheaded by professional golfer Blair O’Neal has resulted in a course that combines elements of Pinehurst and Pine Valley. The collaboration with Kye Goalby has brought a nuanced layout to life.

In Aiken, South Carolina, Old Barnwell stands as an elite club with a commitment to social initiatives. Designed by Blake Conant and Brian Schneider, the course plays to a non-traditional par 73 and features a routing that winds through a sandy bowl.

Broomsedge, situated in Rembert, South Carolina, is a project led by architect Mike Koprowski and Kyle Franz. The course, reminiscent of Old Town Club in Winston-Salem, includes unique features such as changing par holes and multiple greens per hole.

Further south in Butler, Georgia, Fall Line is a boutique club with two 18-hole courses and additional amenities like a short course and shooting facilities. Designed by Ogilvie, Cocking and Mead, the courses draw inspiration from English heathland layouts.

In the Sand Hills between Aiken, South Carolina, and Augusta, Georgia, a private membership club is in the works with two planned courses. The Hammer Course, designed by Tad King and Rob Collins of Sweetens Cove fame, is set to offer alternative routings and a unique three-hole loop.

Tom Watson‘s involvement in designing a course at Cypress Shoals, just outside Augusta, promises a new golf community bordering the Savannah River. The development will also feature residential lots, condominiums, cabins, hunting grounds, and an equestrian facility.
