Sea Pines Resort's Heron Point by Pete Dye golf course has been named "Golf Course of the Year" by the South Carolina Golf Course Owners Association. The group selects the winner based on criteria established by the National Golf Course Owners Associations: exceptional course quality, exceptional quality of management, outstanding contribution to the community, and significant contribution to the game.
This honor for Heron Point automatically nominates it for the national group’s "National Course of the Year" award. Earlier this year, Heron Point was named "2015 Course of the Year" by the Lowcountry Golf Course Owners Association, which qualified it for the SCGCOA honor. Heron Point underwent a series of subtle modifications in 2014 under the close supervision of Dye.
