Bloody Point Golf Course closed on Wednesday along with its affiliated businesses Eagles Nest Restaurant and Bloody Point Water Taxi, according to an employee of Bloody Point Beach Resort.
The guest rooms at the resort remain open, according to the employee.
The Daufuskie Island course has a turbulent past — including sitting for years in bankruptcy proceedings before eventually being sold for auction in 2011.
It was purchased by Brian McCarthy, a Daufuskie Island property owner, for $1.64 million.
Never miss a local story.
McCarthy spent about $2 million restoring the golf course but in recent years said the business was failing.
It has previously been reported the course was losing $125,000 a month.
In an attempt to transform the property last year, McCarthy received approval from the Beaufort County Council in April to build 125 residential units, 25,000 square feet of commercial space and a 60-room inn on the course site.
A call to McCarthy and the architect for the project were not returned Thursday.
It is unknown if the course was closed in preparation for the development or other reasons.
The island’s Melrose Resort also sits unused as it has seen two bankruptcy sales in the past seven years. The most recent sale was in August.
