Hilton Head Island, SC (October 3, 2017) - Sea Pines Country Club will unveil its newly renovated Blue Heron Pub and Grille during a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday October 11. The 6,250-square-foot casual dining restaurant features a modern design with relaxing features, including gorgeous views of the tidal marsh. The space also offers outdoor dining with a screened-in patio and deck framed by the signature 18th hole. Additionally, Executive Chef Brian Coseo created a new menu for the restaurant. A sampling of his Lowcountry cuisine will be featured at the special open house for Club members and members of the media.

“The expansion of the Grille will give members a more relaxed option after a round of golf or a game of tennis,” said Robbie Ames, general manager and chief operating officer. “The Grille will share the same expansive views of the tidal marsh as the more upscale dining room found at the club.”

LS3P Design Team and Sea Pines Country Club members Joy Sherry, Jane Sterne, Carol Ducey and Jeanie Hooper were the interior designers. The design team gathered inspiration from more than 25 different country clubs throughout the Lowcountry, North Carolina, Florida and even Costa Rica.
The expansion and renovation of the Blue Heron Pub and Grille is part of Sea Pines Country Club’s $2.7 million commitment to refresh the Clubhouse. A $450,000 indoor and outdoor pool renovation project was completed in April — which included modernizing the existing saline indoor pool, the 24-meter outdoor pool, the spa and deck, and building a brand new children’s splash pool.

“The club is catering and changing for all generations,” Ames said. “The country club member of today demands a more casual and relaxed environment, unlike their dad’s club.”

The second phase of renovation will include an upgrade and expansion of the Club’s fitness center. The fitness center will nearly double in size with new locker rooms and the latest in equipment to augment the Club’s personal training and wellness-focused programming. Planning is in the early stages, with details still being formulated from member input and industry research.

More than 850 families own memberships to the Club, which is a private entity separate from the Sea Pines Resort and Sea Pines Community Services Associates. The clubhouse was built in 1991 and has undergone several renovations, with the latest in 2011.
