A Review of the 2016 Season

Blog Post By: Jon Conklin, PGA Head Professional & Director of Operations

Looking back on the 2016 season, it ended up being a very nice year for golf in Mt. Pleasant, with a warm and dry core season.  We opened our season earlier than usual, on the 18th of March, and we are still open to this day.  Having a few extra weeks of golf on the front and back end of the season is exciting for seasonal businesses like ours.

This year, we rolled out our new Club Car fleet of golf carts, each with the Visage GPS System installed.  To say this was a hit with our customers would be an understatement.  Our customers enjoyed knowing how far each person’s distance was to the flag, how far their drives were, along with other landmarks (touch screen).   Thus, saving them time, rather than working with their own distance measuring device.  This, in return, helped with better pace of play for everyone who visited, which in today’s age is a win-win.

Course conditions thrived this year at Bucks Run.  While it can be tough on a grounds staff with low amounts of precipitation and warm days, our staff did not miss a beat.  Many golfers seem to visit Bucks Run for the amenities, customer service, and superb layout, but always seem to return because of the excellent conditions our grounds crew puts together on a daily basis.  For that, I want to personally thank Craig McKinley and his staff for their commitment to excellence!    


Going into this off-season, we do not shut our doors but remain busy planning for 2017, while also offering other services in the winter months. Our indoor golf simulator, called Bucks Run Virtual Golf, will open in late December for the winter golfing season. Here, players can join a league, take lessons, or just play a round with friends. In addition, The Quarry Grill restaurant will remain open all winter, with dinner hours and dinner specials on Friday and Saturday evenings.  Our banquet room and VIP room will also remain open for meetings, private parties and weddings. A Holiday Grand Buffet is also being served on December 2, 9, and 16th. Please give us a call to reserve your reservation for the upcoming holiday season.  While it seems far away, December will be here before we know it!
