After the launch day event was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew, we didn't know when Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III on Hilton Head Island would actually open. Fortunately, due to the hard work of grounds staff and outside contractors, Sea Pines managed to open the course this past Monday, October 31st. Hundreds of trees fell on the new course and many areas were flooded, but we played the course yesterday and you could hardly tell. The new design is a marked improvement over the previous Ocean Course that it replaced. The course is wider, the bunkering is more interesting and varied, and the fast new bermuda greens have significantly more slope. The tee was also raised at the famous 15th to provide a better view of the ocean behind the green. The opening of Atlantic Dunes marks the completion of a course renovation plan that began with Heron Point and Harbour Town. Neighboring Heron Point Course reopened Wednesday, November 2nd, and Harbour Town is set to reopen on Wednesday, November 9th.
