Berkeley Hall Announces Golf Course Enhancement

Berkeley Hall Club recently announced the launch of the private club’s golf course enhancement and drainage improvement project. “Berkeley Hall is committed to providing a premier golf course experience,” said Adrian Morris, general manager and COO of Berkeley Hall Club. “The project will further upgrade our golf course playability, signifying an important investment in our community, one that will help us remain one of the premier golf communities in the Southeast.”

The course enhancement project is centered around installing a state-of-the-art subsurface drainage system on both of the Tom Fazio-designed courses. With a cost of $4.3 million, taking about 70 weeks to complete and closing only one hole at a time, the system was designed and will be installed by nationally recognized experts who have completed similar projects at a number of leading clubs; notably Augusta National, East Lake and Seminole. Once completed, Berkeley Hall expects to offer the finest, driest turf conditions in the Lowcountry, regardless of any weather conditions. Since assuming ownership from the developer in 2005, Berkeley Hall's membership has continued to invest in course upgrades to maintain and enhance the playability of its North and South courses, annually home of The Players Amateur.  Recent projects include conversion of the North greens to Champion Bermuda grass, conversion of its Top 100 learning and practice facility to Tifway 419 Bermuda, and significant bunker upgrading.
