Chinese Investors Scooping Up Grand Strand Properties


golf soldThe owners of Classic Golf Group’s three courses did not have their properties listed for sale last year, but they were quietly shopping them in the Myrtle Beach golf market – quite unsuccessfully.

“You had a few low, really insulting offers that really weren’t offers,” said Ed Jerdon, a partner in the courses.

Then the owners were contacted by Jane Zheng, the Keller Williams Myrtle Beach Realtor who represented the Chinese family that had purchased their former course, Black Bear Golf Club, earlier last summer. She had a new group of investors from China who might be interested in their properties.

After a short period of negotiation, Jerdon’s group sold the Founders Club of Pawleys Island, Indian Wells Golf Club and Burning Ridge Golf Club in September for about $11 million – much more than anyone else in the market was willing, and in many cases able, to pay.

“As far as selling a golf property now it depends on the purchaser, whether they can even get financing,” Jerdon said. “The Chinese, they came with cash … and they continue to buy.”
