"It is a classic layout that rewards strategic thought and well-executed shots, and misses are not overly penalized." According to Cary Corbitt, vice president of sports and operations for the resort, "Davis and his team have executed an inspiring interpretation of our vision for Atlantic Dunes. From a design and aesthetic standpoint, it is a perfect complement to Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus' work at Harbour Town and Pete Dye's Heron Point. With three championship golf courses, two new clubhouses and the new Beach Club, Sea Pines has cemented its status as a world-class golf destination."
