CHECK OUT THE MOORE FARMS BOTANICAL GARDENS!

                                LAKE CITY, SOUTH CAROLINA
                   2 hours 18 minutes from Pinewild Country Club

  • Attention Garden Enthusiasts! B.J. Barrett found this wonderful website that tells about the The Moore Farms Botanical Gardens which is owned by Darla Moore, the South Carolina Philanthropist who was recently inducted as a member of the Augusta National Country Club along with Condaleza Rice.
  • The information for the garden tour of the Moore Farms Botanical Garden can be found at moorefarmsbg.org. All guests must register in advance. The tickets are $10 each. It looks like it would be about a 2 ½ hour drive from Pinewild. What a wonderful opportunity! They are rarely open to the public and it will be a lot of fun to get a peek inside! Perhaps some of our members would like to get together and car pool for a great outing!
  • Tour requests are limited to groups of 10 people or more. Preference will be given to horticulture oriented groups such as garden clubs, landscape professionals and members of the local community.
  • They offer several open days per year during which the public can tour the gardens.
