Golfing Beaufort: An Exciting New Chapter for Cat Island Club

Cat Island Club has officially started an exciting new chapter with Resort Development Partners, a company specializing in operations and strategic planning for resort communities.

The goal: to reinvent and revitalize Cat Island into something truly special for this spectacular Sea Island community. Work has already begun to restore the Club to its original glory and resiliency, including:

• Revitalizing the golf course to the original classic George W. Cobb design, with a focus on restoring the beauty and natural ecosystem of the surrounding tidelands.

• Improving the entire resort-style pool complex, including adult and child pool areas, tennis courts, cabana bar, and adding food and beverage options.

• Fully renovating the private clubhouse to include a full-service restaurant
and bar, with additional outdoor patio and firepit amenities.

Tim Mervosh, a Life Member of the PGA and resident of Beaufort, will lead the Club into the future as General Manager. A lifelong industry leader in community
development, Mr. Mervosh spent the last 20 years as COO/ General Manager at some of the finest clubs in the nation. “This is truly an exciting time for all of us,” he said. “We have a great vision for the future of Cat Island Club, and I expect for the experience to be exceptional.”
