Beaufort County panel tees up Bluffton golf course redevelopment plan

Beaufort County Council’s Natural Resources Committee recommended moving forward with plans to redevelop the Executive Golf Club, a defunct par-3 course near the Bluffton Parkway flyover. Preliminary plans for the roughly 21-acre property include 125 new residential units, two commercial spaces totaling about 20,000 square feet, and a 120-room hotel. The owners of the adjacent and much larger Hilton Head National Golf Club are also planning to redevelop that property.
