    The Dataw Island Golf Club near Beaufort in South Carolina's Low Country will renovate its Arthur Hills and Tom Fazio golf courses.  Fazio's Cotton Dike layout will close in March for nine months of work, followed by Hills' Morgan River course a year later.  All but one of the courses' 36 greens will be planted with MiniVerde grass; club members had been "testing" one of the greens planted with the hardy grass.
    Former Augusta National superintendent Billy Fuller will handle the renovation projects.  At Augusta National, Fuller supervised the change from Bermuda to Bentgrass greens.  Previously, he worked with Bob Cupp's design group.
    I reviewed the Morgan River course and the community after a visit in March.  To read the review, click here.  If you would like more information about Dataw Island, please contact me.

This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005.  Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component.  My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout.  We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
