Osprey Cove Course Renovations Complete

LandMar Group has completed more than $1 million in renovations to the golf course at Osprey Cove and will now to take the golf and country club in Saint Marys, Ga., private. The transition is expected by the end of this year, when the company completes a refurbishment and expansion of Osprey Cove's clubhouse.

"We're excited the golf course has been returned to its original splendor," said M.G. Orender, president of Hampton Golf, LandMar's golf development affiliate. "And with this improvement of the clubhouse, Osprey Cove will be better than ever. Now is the time to take this club private for our members and residents."

The remodel of the 18-hole Mark McCumber-designed course has been underway since last year. The improvements include the construction of a new practice facility, new bunkers, completely re-grassed greens, new cart paths, a new 12th hole and upgraded drainage.

"After we are completely finished, the golf course will be more than worthy of its top-five rating in Georgia," Orender said. Golfweek named the Osprey Cove course in its "Top Five in Georgia" and Golf and Travel included Osprey Cove in its "Top 100 Modern Courses." Golf Digest gave the course a four-star rating.

The clubhouse renovations are underway and will be finished at year’s end. The project will add nearly 2,000 square feet of space to the clubhouse, which currently houses the club's restaurant and pro shop and will maximize views of the course.

Besides the McCumber-designed course, the Osprey Cove community features the River Club, a recreation complex offering a private boat ramp and deep water access via the St. Marys River. Residents at Osprey Cove also enjoy the benefits of their association with Hampton Golf. Residents of LandMar communities have playing privileges at all Hampton Golf clubs and courses and are eligible for community social memberships. Purchase of a new property at Osprey Cove includes a social membership that can be applied to a full golf initiation fee.
