International Club of Myrtle Beach, long regarded as one of the Grand Strand’s hidden gems, has been purchased by Chris Manning Communities, a lifestyle and residential community developer.
In concert with the purchase, Manning entered into a long-term agreement with East Coast Golf to manage all club operations.
International Club, designed by Willard Byrd, opened in 2000. The 6,857-yard layout features a series of finger lakes, natural wetlands, and a mixture of hardwood and pine tree-lined fairways.
As a result of its partnership with East Coast Golf, International Club will be part of the Myrtle Beach Golf Trail, a collection of more than 20 area golf courses that provide an exceptional membership program for locals and golf packages for vacationers.
International Club plans to re-develop the practice area and clubhouse complex to accommodate enhanced club functionality.
Manning previously partnered with East Coast Golf to manage and develop Grand Harbor Golf and Yacht Club in Greenwood, S.C.
“We are excited about the opportunity to work with Chris Manning Communities again at International Club,” said Mike Buccerone, president of ECG. “At all our golf courses, we are committed to making the club the focal point of the community.”
