  • Lockwood Folly expanding,...

    Last summer, Lockwood Folly broke ground on its new clubhouse, a beautiful multi-function building. It is more than16,000 square feet and overlooks the Lockwood Folly River with the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and Holden Beach in the distance. The new clubhouse has a large banquet room, sports bar and restaurant, pro shop, fitness center, library, offices, meeting rooms and two kitchens.

    Recently I learned Lockwood is installing new greens and renovating the course this summer.
