Sea Pines Harbour Town Clubhouse

The Sea Pines Resort Harbour Town Clubhouse is home to the annual RBC Heritage PGA Tournament. With the dire need to expand and improve upon its existing facilities, Sea Pines selects Choate for the construction of this multi-phase project.

Phase one consists of the expansion and renovation to the existing Halfway House. Provisions are made allowing golf course operations to continue, uninterrupted, during the demolition and construction period. The parking area beneath the Conference Center is converted to transitional golf cart storage and a temporary Pro Shop, Caddy Shack and cart staging area remain in operation as the 2014 RBC PGA Heritage takes place between phase one and phase two of construction.

Phase two includes complete demolition to the existing structure and construction of the larger more luxurious Clubhouse, which is located within the same footprint. The stunning three-story structure houses a golf cart garage and storage, Pro Shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms, restaurant, private dining, toilet rooms, kitchen, back of house operations, and multi-function rooms. The Clubhouse is built within two inches of the existing Conference Center, allowing the Clubhouse kitchen to poke-through to the Conference Center corridors and kitchen, which creates convenient and operational efficiency. The adjacent Conference Center receives an exterior facade renovation to match the Clubhouse.

This project is completed in less than 10 months and prior to the 2015 RBC Heritage PGA Tournament, breaking the PGA’s previous record for the demolition and construction of a clubhouse between tournament dates.
