Since its arrival in the Lowcountry in 1929, the Muni has served our community beyond anyone's expectations. Still, time and the elements have worn away features now planned for restoration.
The City of Charleston has approved a bond to cover half of the expected $3 Million price tag necessary to execute the much needed restoration, and it is up to us as citizens to come together and assist in funding the remaining portion of the expected price tag. As the Muni is truly 'everyone's golf course,' we are excited to work with our community to raise these funds in order to provide our citizens with restored and improved features to allow us all to enjoy the Muni for many years to come.
In October, 2018, Mayor Tecklenburg (alongside Kiawah Island Developer, Leonard Long; Kiawah Island Club partner Jordan Phillips; and Golf Course Designer, Troy Miller) appeared before citizens at the Muni's 1st Tee to announce a campaign to kick off our fundraising efforts.
Troy Miller, of Miller Golf Design, is heading up the design phase of the project with the goal of restoring features to their original beauty, incorporate the lovely environmental surroundings, and alleviate drainage and flooding issues for our neighbors and the course itself.
Assisting with fundraising efforts and securing the support for future needs is the newly developed, 'Friends of the Muni' foundation. The Friends of the Muni is a 501(c)3, non-profit foundation. The foundation will be leading the effort to raise the necessary $1.5 Million to complete the restoration, and will remain in place for future support.
