In 1977 plans were made for a 7 acre pond to be built for fishing. A friend suggested a couple of golf holes be built around the lake. This catapulted into 9 holes and then came the question of a name for the course. When construction of the pond began the kiln and other artifacts of brick making were discovered. This is where the brick came from for the buildings on the plantation. Many years before removal of dirt from that wet weather hole had created a swimming hole which the local kids referred to as the “Brickyard Hole”. For want of a name, the second golf course ever built in Sumter County was called Brickyard Plantation Golf Club. Today it is a semi-private course and welcomes all to come play this challenging 27 hole facility.
