I just returned from my annual guys beach trip to MB. This was the 25th anniversary for the core group, and my 15th year. We ended up playing Monday through Saturday at a wide ranging series of courses; Pawleys Plantation, Litchfield Country Club, Eastport, Panthers Run, Oyster Bay, and Heather Glen.
As usually happens, there was a lot of wind most days, especially on the inter coastal courses. Made for some higher than normal scores, but still lots of fun. On Saturday our group holds an annual scramble for a "Medallion," something similar to an olympic medal. Been doing this for the past 4 years to honor one of our friends who passed away. This year, at Panther Run, our team was victorious and came home with a victory. For two of us it was our first medallion win, so lots of special pride there.
It seems Myrtle Beach is not fully recovered from the rough economic times, and there are many places that are still shuttered and closed. The rental properties along the beach where we stay were over 80% empty, which is pretty high for this time of year.
I'm sure if you choose to go down there are plenty of deals to be had. At Pawleys Plantation their posted rate was $125, and we got on for $59, a huge discount. Make sure you shop around and check for deals!
