MYRTLE BEACH — The final putt at Buccaneer Bay Miniature Golf on U.S. 17 Business South is just weeks away, as The Jackson Companies plans to take it down to make way for a grocery store and other development.
The 24-year-old course near the intersection of Dick Pond Road will close on Aug. 16 so that land preparation can begin for the planned development, said Barb Krumm, spokeswoman for Ocean Lakes Family Campground, which is owned by The Jackson Companies.
Steve Alger, the company’s vice president of development, could not be reached Monday afternoon.
The development plan filed with the Horry County Planning Department shows an approximately 43,000-square-foot grocery store and ten other buildings that wrap around the Walgreens Drug Store on the northwest corner of the intersection. Two of the buildings are divided into several spaces. The name of the grocery store is not given in the plan, and the plan doesn’t say what type of stores will operate in the other buildings.
While three of the buildings, including the two divided into more than one space, are on Dick Pond, the other development is along U.S. 17 Business.
