Aberdeen permanently closed 7 holes on the Woodland nine. They're keeping 2 holes around in case they need maintenance done on one of the other 18 holes.

I doubt they often fill all 3 nines.  This will probably save $$ in the long run. 
 
Before I read the article, I was thinking that it might say the 2 remaining
Woodland holes can be  played as warmup or tie breaker holes.   
They must be 1 + 9.

They have suffered through so many issues the last several years.  Would they try to build on the closed holes?  Seems to me that most of the property is on a flood-plain.

It seems like Aberdeen floods worse now than years ago or the bad news
travels faster now and we hear about it.      
The houses they have now flood, maybe they didn't flood when built.      
 
The Woodlands 9 is back in the woods where there are no houses.    
I doubt they can build houses on the closed holes.   
That land is probably golf or nothing now.

In closing these seven holes they will reduce greatly their maintenance costs. It is good thinking for them. Thanks for reporting this article of the Sun News.

Thanks @1putt1!

It's better in this case to see the glass half-full than half-empty!

That's what happens when you build a golf course on a swamp....It's a marginal course anyway.

IF this helps them stay open long term then this is a good move.

I like the move. Some of these holes were regularly under water anyway. I just don't know if the remainder of the course (and the clubhouse, which has also been badly flooded in the past) can continue to operate.

Correct. In 1999 Myrtle Beach National purchased Buck Creek and changed the name for Aberdeen.

Soon after becoming Aberdeen, the course flooded in the 1999 Floyd. 
That was the first time I heard of it flooding, although there was the 
social media and news coverage like we have now.

Never cared for Buck Creek/Aberdeen at all. Too tight with way too many blind shots so haven't played there in many years.
