$18 million ‘next generation’ renovation under way at The Peninsula Club

Groundbreaking for $18 million renovation at The Peninsula Club

Oct. 19. Greenville, SC-based Beau Welling Design (BWD) has started an $18 million renovation of the golf course and facilities at The Peninsula Club. The project is expected to be completed in a year.

“After a couple of years of planning and preparation, we are excited to break ground on a project that will create a brand-new feeling and playing experience for the golf course as well as other facilities for the club’s membership,” says Beau Welling, founder of BWD.

While the routing and footprint of the golf course will largely remain the same, many golf features are being adjusted to encourage shot-making and creativity from tee to green.

The entire course will be re-grassed utilizing TifEagle bermudagrass on the greens and Tahoma31 bermudagrass on the rest of the course including green surrounds, fairways, rough, and tees.

Major updates include: 

—Infrastructure overhaul and updates including a new state-of-the-art irrigation system, upgraded drainage and new cart paths

—Strategic tree clearing for expanded sightlines across the course as well as views of Lake Norman

—Addition of a native fescue mix to out-of-play areas

—Net reduction of bunker square footage as part of a larger recalibration of bunker strategy

Beyond the golf course renovation, BWD assisted with planning for more golf practice area and amenities, including two teaching bays as well as a new Golf Pro Shop. The existing Pro Shop will be converted to a new adult food and beverage offering for membership.

Additionally, four new tennis courts and six pickleball courts will be added to the tennis complex.
