Rich in History and Culture

The moment you enter the Pawleys Plantation Clubhouse, immerse yourself in a long forgotten era.  The Clubhouse was originally part of Hagley Plantation, one of the largest rice plantations in the region. In the period from 1840-1860, half of the nation's rice was harvested on the Waccamaw Neck.
The decline of rice, caused a rise in timber harvesting.  The Tyson family arrived  to harvest sap for turpentine from the many pine trees.  The property was then known as "Boggy Branch". 
During the 1980's Les Morris purchased 582 acres on Route 17 in Pawleys Island Mainland.  In 1986, Morris collaborated with Jack Nicklaus to build Nicklaus's first signature golf course.  Over the years, Jack Nicklaus has returned to Pawleys Plantation and most recently, his design group was an integral part of the major course renovations. Many memorabilia from Nicklaus's time can be seen in the Clubhouse, as well as a former home off the 14th fairway.  
Pawleys Plantation is within easy reach of Pawleys Island, culture treasures, such as Brookgreen Gardens, Hobcaw Barony and Huntington Beach State Park.   Traveling south on 17, going over the Intercostal Waterway, you will find historic Georgetown, most recently named, "America's Best Coastal Town." Traveling north on 17, explore the quaint shops of Pawleys Island Mainland.  From Georgetown to Murrells Inlet it will become a difficult decision to call one restaurant your favorite.
