Hilton Head architect to complete redesign

Fort Mill No. 1 Hilton Head Island, S.C. – Hilton Head Island based course designer Clyde Johnston, one of the nation’s top architects, has been hired to oversee the redesign of a 60-year-old South Carolina golf course.

The Fort Mill Golf Club in the Upstate region of South Carolina will close this coming weekend to undergo renovations and is expected to reopen in August.

The course was designed by Donald Ross, a renowned course architect who also designed legendary Pinehurst No. 2 in Pinehurst, N.C., and has been one of the most popular stops for local golfers, with upwards of 50,000 rounds played annually on the 18-hole layout.

Ross designed the front nine in 1947 while George Cobb designed the back nine which opened in 1959.

Johnston, whose design firm offers professional golf course design services to the southeastern United States, designed the Fort Mill Golf Club’s sister course, Springfield Golf Club, which opened in 2001.
Since the inception of his design firm in 1987, Johnston has completed 54 golf course design projects, both new designs and redesigns.
