Myrtle Beach Golf Course to be Redeveloped


Cypress Bay Golf Club has been sold to a housing developer, and the course is scheduled to shut down at the end of February for apparent redevelopment. Mungo Homes, which is based in Columbia and has a pair of existing developments on the Grand Strand, has purchased the course.

Gene Blanton, three-year general manager at Cypress Bay, said the 6,500-yard Russell Breeden design that opened in 1972 will remain open until March 1.

“The course has been sold to a developer,” Blanton said. “They were ready to close it down now, but in order to treat our customers and employees right . . . we wanted [the employees] to be able to make arrangements to apply at other places.”

Officials from Mungo homes could not be reached Thursday for comment.

Non-golfers will know Cypress Bay as the course with an attractive par-3 green along U.S. 17 South in Little River with a water fountain in a pond fronting the green.
