5 Reasons

To Book A Golf Package 1. Get The Best Package For You

The sheer number of golf courses in Myrtle Beach makes choosing your golf lineup a daunting task. Let an experienced golf packager provide you with options that are going to get your mass text or email chain going with your friends. This gives you more time to devote to trip logistics and gaining trip commitments, as well as more “good natured banter.”

the most important information you can share with your travel provider. With the number of courses in Myrtle Beach, multiplied by the number of possible golf lineups-yes, some boundaries need to be set. If you can inform your golf packager what the maximum budget per person

the trip.

4. Get It Your Way.

Dye or no Dye? Bunkers or water? Bent grass or Bermuda? There are hundreds of different preferences when it comes to this fine game of golf. With 75 courses, the Myrtle Beach golf trip can wear a lot of faces. Let someone who knows the courses first-hand help to customize your trip, so that your preferences can be met. For the record, I vote yes on Dye.

This gives you more time to devote to trip logistics and gaining trip commitments, as well as more “good natured banter.”

2. Maximize Your Budget-How

Much Do I Want To Spend? While this seems like an obvious question, anyone in a sales (or poker) background will tell you not to show your hand until you are called upon. However, this is actually

is at the beginning of your quotation process, this will speed everything up for you. This will also enable your provider to put together the best options that will fall into your price range.

3. Don’t Herd Cats

In any other arena, getting a bunch of guys together for a sporting occasion is usually a very simple task. For some reason or another, when it comes to a golf trip-that previously stated concept can be tossed out the window. Whether it is spouse-related or work-related, getting your crew to commit to a golf trip is tough business. With the help of a golf packager, his or her guidance can allow you to relax and enjoy the buildup to

5. Local Knowledge

What’s the weather like today? That’s the one question your golf packager probably hears the most. But isn’t it nice to hear the answer from a person on the ground, as opposed to an app on your phone? More importantly, a golf director gets the latest scoop on all the news in the area. Good course conditions, fast greens, and new course promotions are all items that you wouldn’t find through a Google search. Let’s not forget to mention-a good restaurant, sports bar to watch a game, or a nightclub-this advice comes for free as part of a package deal.


Shipping Your Clubs

to Myrtle Beach

The desperate stare as the last few bags come sliding out of the baggage area’s revolving carousel. I know by golf bag is going to be the next bag to appear. We have all been there at some point in our lives, and that sinking feeling has set in before. My golf bag did not make it, put a fork in me. All of the pre-trip bets and back and forth with my buddies, without my clubsI don’t stand a chance. Thankfully in these new advanced days and time, there is a solution now to this problem. Shipping your golf clubs to Myrtle Beach is now a very easy and viable option. While we are still waiting for Amazon to get into the golf club shipping business, there is a very simple (and affordable) option for you to consider for your next trip. Ship Sticks The folks at Ship Sticks began their company in 2011 out of West Palm Beach Florida. The concept began simply enough, and through growth and use of advanced technology, the business has grown to produce a revenue of over 3.9 million dollars. So this is not a small start-up company, they are experts and produce an efficient service to their customers. The Process: 1. Schedule Your Shipment: The Ship Sticks website (www.shipsticks.com) is very simple and well organized. Just register for a new account (if you are a first time user) or login if you are a repeat customer. You specify your

pick-up and delivery locations and specific dates. They will be able to pick up your clubs anywhere, whether from your home, office, home club, or that shed in your backyard. You also have the option to drop your clubs off at any local carrier’s store as well. 2. Print And Attach Your Bar-Coded Labels: Once you complete the online paperwork, you will be directed to a confirmation page, from which you can print your all of your labels. You would have the ability to print them again at any point from your confirmation email you will receive. Just attach your outbound label, and keep the return label for later use. 3. Pack Your Bag: This one really is probably the most difficult part, at least in my case. Would definitely recommend a golf travel bag, preferably one with a hard exterior. 4. Clubs Get Picked Up: On the assigned the date your clubs will be picked up and will begin their trip ahead of you. If you have opted to drop off the clubs yourself, the website provides locations to all the available locations for drop off in your area. 5. Tracking Your Clubs: Ship Sticks allows you to track the location and progress of your shipment, just follow the link from your emailed confirmation, and you will find all status reports.

6. Clubs Have Arrived: You can relax when the confirmation email hits your inbox, notifying you that your clubs have arrived safely at their destination. 7. Coming Home: You would simply repeat the same process as mentioned above with your return labels and can send them home from your last course. The entire process is very simple and affordable, and the customer support is top notch. Just think how much easier the trip will be, whether is lugging the clubs to the airport, or trying to decided how you are going to fit 8 guys in a rented mini-van with clubs. Now you don’t have to worry about those challenges, and will have some extra spending money in your pocket.

Clubhouse Chatter: Tips From The Staff

From the Head Pro: “Please show up early for your tee time. Groups that show up early always get the best treatment from the staff. Also, this added flexibility helps in more ways than one. If a large group is on the books, show up early and maybe we can sneak you out in front of them, it always helps.” From the Superintendent: “Best advice I can give, is please pay attention to the cart signs with regards to how far you can drive the carts up the fairway. I know a lot of your courses back home allow you drive right up to the greens, but we kindly ask that you follow the markers set up by our staff. And please, if it is wet and cart path only, please abide by that guideline so that others after you can also enjoy the course.” From the Snack Bar: “If you are nearing the turn for the round and are craving a cheeseburger, or any other item that requires a bit of cooking time, just give us a call and we can prepare your order in advance. This way you can take it with you, and not be limited to items that you might normally have to choose from on the turn.” From the Bag Drop: “Any group pairings sheet is gold in our line of work. If you have this prepared ahead of time, please share it with us. This will get everyone loaded quicker, and allow a bit more time to browse the pro shop, or hit a couple of extra shots on the range, or putting green.

snores, and who doesn’t want to room with Bob…..that is the tough part.” From the Golf Package Director: “Organization is definitely the key if you are bringing a group of more than 4 golfers. Establish deadline dates with your group members. Let everyone know when commitments need to be made, as well as when payments have to be completed by. This will lead to less headache for you the group planner, and will help us get you finalized.” “The more information you can share with us when we are coming up with quotes, the better tailored your package will end up. If you like wide open fairways, let us know and we can include courses that fit that criteria. If you like packages that include free lunch, we can match those for you.” “Lastly, the role of group leader or planner for a golf trip is a very underappreciated role. You probably never receive half of the thanks from the group for all the work that goes into making the trip a reality. Your golf packager is there to assist you with the process, and anything that comes up during the process, can be handled. Try to enjoy the process, and realize that at the end of the trip, those smiles are your friends’ faces are a result of a great trip planner.”

From the Hotel or Condo Staff: “If you can provide a roommate list for your group, this is a great help to all involved. If group members arrive at different times, or even different days, having a rooming list eliminates any confusion on both sides. Figuring out who www.MyrtleBeachGolfApp.com

UNDERSTANDING COURSE RULES AND POLICIES You learn something new about golf every time you play. We have compiled a list of some of the golf terms and policies common in the Myrtle Beach area, and wanted to share these with you. Double Tee:

This is a very common tee sheet model employed by a large number of courses in Myrtle Beach. If you have asked for a 10:30 AM tee time in April, you may have had this policy explained to you already. A double tee is a tee off procedure where the golf course sends groups off holes #1 and #10 simultaneously. So for example, at 8:00 AM a group will tee off hole #1 and also hole #10. This procedure is used to maximize the number of tee times for the most requested time frame (7:30-9:30 AM). Group will tee off for generally around a two and a half hour time frame. So when that time frame ends (let’s say 9:30 AM is the last morning tee time), then the course has to close new tee offs until all of the morning groups have made the turn. They will then resume the afternoon tee times in the same manner. Some courses have recently eliminated use of this model, which allows them to offer mid-morning tee times, and courses with 27 holes may have also late morning tee times as well.

Raincheck:

If Mother Nature decides to throw some rain at you, don’t fret. If you have a round that is rained out, the course will issue you a raincheck. This raincheck can be used for a future round, please put it in a zip lock bag and keep it somewhere safe. This raincheck can be put to good use for your next trip, and will lower your costs.

Replays:

You just shot your best score ever, your pulse is rapid, and you are hungry to play more than the 18 holes you just finished. All the courses in the Myrtle Beach area, offer discounted rates to go back out in the afternoon and play 9 or 18 more “replay” holes. You don’t have to get in your car, and most of the time you can keep your clubs right in the same golf cart. If you are interested in replaying at a course, we recommend On The Green Magazine

speaking to the pro shop staff prior to your AM round, and they will be able to provide you with a price, as well as time of availability. Some courses and packages include free or discounted replays which can be booked in advance as part of your package. Other properties which have multiple courses on the same property, will have discounted rates to play one of its other courses in the afternoon as well.

Bag Drop:

When you enter a course property in the Myrtle Beach area, you will see signs directing you to the bag drop area. This is the unloading area for vehicles to pull up to, and where the bag drop attendant will unload your clubs prior to putting them on a cart. It is important to use this area, so that the outside course staff can keep your group’s bags together, put drivers and riders together, and keep the tee times on their scheduled mark. Remember to take good care of your bag drop guys; they can be a valuable asset to you with regards to course tips or nightlife recommendations.

Aerification:

The word aeration stimulates negative emotions for many golfers. Aeration is an essential program to keep playing surfaces healthy and in good condition. Aeration primarily is performed to control organic matter – i.e., decaying roots and grass stems – relieve soil compaction, stimulate root growth and improve drainage. If organic matter becomes too thick, it acts like a sponge and holds water at the surface after rain or irrigation. Excessive organic matter also inhibits root growth, reduces oxygen levels in the soil, encourages disease and eventually can lead to turf failure. Furthermore, excessive organic matter creates soft surfaces prone to ball marks, foot printing and inconsistent playing conditions. Aeration and topdressing are the most effective ways to control organic matter and maintain smooth, firm putting surfaces. www.OnTheGreenMagazine.com

In Myrtle Beach, check with your packager if you are planning a trip in late May or June or early July. Most courses will aerify at that time of year, but your packager will be able to advise you to the status of each course. Some courses will also plan a small tyne (small holes) aerifcation in late August or early September.

Overseeding:

Bermuda grass is king in Myrtle Beach. Overseeding is done when a golf course’s main grass (Bermuda) in the fairways, tee boxes, and greens is about to go into its dormant stage. When Bermuda goes dormant, it turns to a brown color. The actual overseeding process involves putting out seeds of rye grass (which is tolerant to colder weather) onto the course. The seeds must be watered In order to germinate and grow, which may result in cart path restrictions at the golf courses. When the temperature begins to hit the lows 60’s (usually in October), that is the time to overseed. Bermuda grass stops growing in its dormant stage, and therefore will not heal if damaged. Golf cart limitations will be put in place for an extended period of time when overseeding is in practice. This is for more than one reason. First, the dormant Bermuda grass cannot heal if damaged, and second, the course will be wet from all of the water that is required for the overseed to take. Some courses in Myrtle Beach will overseed the entire course whereas others will overseed only fairways and tee boxes. Bent grass greens do not need to be overseeded as they are a cool season grass. Some courses elect not to overseed the rough as it gives the course some nice definition. Again, check with your golf packager, who can provide detailed information on the courses.

Founders Group International Your Ambassador to the Grand Strand Golf Experience

It’s a contemporary approach in the Myrtle Beach golf scene – but one that blends its top courses with a consumer appeal that has been decades in the making. It embodies what you’ve come to like most about golfing the Grand Strand over the years, and takes it to a whole new level. And it’s offered by Founders Group International - the proud owner and operator of 22 of Myrtle Beach’s most requested designs. FGI made its initial splash in 2014 with its acquisition of eight renowned courses – including TPC Myrtle Beach, host of the 2000 Senior Tour Championship, and the Grand Strand’s only design rated 5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play”; and World Tour Golf Links, 2004 recipient of “Course of the Year” honors by the National Golf Course Owners Association, and a visiting golfer’s paradise that pays homage to many of the world’s most renowned golf holes and venues. TPC Myrtle Beach and World Tour were joined by Aberdeen Country Club, Burning Ridge Golf Club, Colonial Charters Golf Club, Founders Club at Pawleys Island, Indian Wells Golf Club and River Hills Golf & Country Club.

Willbrook Plantation On The Green Magazine

www.OnTheGreenMagazine.com


But as quickly as FGI emerged with these eight designs, its “gamechanging” moment came in 2015 when it reached agreement with National Golf Management to acquire the Myrtle Beach golf industry’s most established group of courses, loyalty programs and reservation services. They operated for years under the popular “Prime Times Signature Courses” brand, and are now rolled in FGI’s emerging Founders Collection portfolio that includes: • King’s North – the most renowned of three Arnold Palmer designs at Myrtle Beach National Golf Club that also includes West Course and SouthCreek, and all of which have been a staple of the Grand Strand golf scene for more than four decades • Pine Lakes Country Club – “The Granddaddy,” Myrtle Beach’s firstever golf club founded in 1927 by the legendary Robert White, the first president of the PGA of America • Grande Dunes Resort Club – Honored in 2001 as “Course of the Year” by the National Golf Course Owners Association, and most recently a co-host of the 2014 PGA Professional National Championship. These five stalwarts came with nine additional designs formerly owned or operated by National Golf Management, including Litchfield Country Club, Long Bay Club, Myrtlewood Golf Club’s Palmetto and PineHills courses, Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club, River Club, Tradition Club, Wild Wing Plantation and Willbrook Plantation.

Altogether, the Founders Collection spotlights signature designs from the likes of industry legends Jack Nicklaus (Long Bay, Pawleys Plantation), Arnold Palmer (Myrtle Beach National) and Tom Fazio (TPC Myrtle Beach) … 14 recipients of four or more stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” … and local, statewide and national “Golf Course of the Year” accolades among many of its courses. The Founders Collection courses are now the featured courses of the Prime Times Signature Card, a loyalty program that for years has rewarded regular players of its courses with the Grand Strand’s lowest available rates – in addition to complimentary rounds earned with frequent play. They’re also part of a premium loyalty program (the Prime Times Honors Club) that takes this premise even higher by adding an array of country club-level benefits. And the Founders Collection is just the starting point in FGI’s ability to offer the visiting golfer easy, unparalleled access to the best rates for more than 70 golf courses throughout the Grand Strand. Whether you’re seeking a last-minute tee time or planning a multiround golf getaway for your group, FGI’s resources include a phone reservation center, Tee Time Central, that’s open 7 days a week – along with popular Web sites at MBN.com and MyrtleBeachGolfTrips.com that give you easy, 24/7 access online.

WORLD AMATEUR HANDICAP CHAMPIONSHIP

Virginian Curtis Henley Wins 34th Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship

2017 World Am winner Curtis Henley of Poquoson, Va. (left) accepts the championship trophy from World Am Tournament Director Scott Tomasello. Curtis Henley of Poquoson, Va. shot a gross 82, good for a net 66, to win the World Championship Playoff at the 34th Annual Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship Friday at Barefoot Resort’s Dye Club.

Each flight played a different course every day and after four rounds of competition, all flight winners and ties advanced to the World Championship Playoff at the Dye Club. The playoff was an 18-hole shootout to crown the event’s winner.

Henley edged James Dupont of Meadville, Pa. and Charlotte’s Jim Acord, who each shot net 67s. Hilton Head’s Wes Long fired a sizzling 68 to win the Gross Division and finish five rounds with a cumulative, gross score of 1-under par.

While the competition is initially what lures players to the tournament, it’s only part of what keeps them coming back. At the heart of the World Am’s appeal is the camaraderie among its participants, and much of that kinship is fostered at “The World’sLargest 19th Hole.”

Making his first appearance in the event, Carl Myers of Dallas, Texas won the Senior Gross Division in a sudden death playoff against Kim Mansfield of High Point, N.C. Myers won on the first sudden death playoff hole with a par. Virginians Ted Hartung and Thomas “Duke“ Wagner won the International Pairs competition and, along with it, a trip to St. Andrews, Scotland to represent the United States in the IP World Championship in 2018. A 72-hole, net stroke play tournament, the World Am was played on more than 50 of Myrtle Beach’s best golf courses. Players from 49 states and 20 countries competed in the event, which was open to all men and women 18 years of age and older, and players were flighted based on age, gender and handicap.

Each night of the event, the 19th Hole overtook all 120,000 square feet of the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, providing participants with free food and drinks, live entertainment, celebrity guest appearances, a golf expo and more. Among the big names that appeared at the 19th Hole this year were Golf Channel personalities Charlie Rymer, Damon Hack and Chantel McCabe, billiards legend Ewa Laurance and Paige Spiranac, one of the game’s fastest-rising personalities. Players also received a gift bag that included a logoed hat, shirt, PGA Tour Superstore gift card, Nexbelt, and an assortment of other goodies. The 35th annual Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship will be played August 27 - August 31, 2018. For more information, visit: www.MyrtleBeachWorldAmateur.com.

screens. The new restaurant will feature a full-service menu along with daily drink specials. Little River’s Aberdeen Country Club was named in honor of the Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, Scotland’s sixth oldest golf course. The new logo design features a dragon, a mythical figure that often represents the primal forces of nature. In Celtic and other mythologies around the world, the dragon is recognized as a controller of water, the very element that impacted Aberdeen last October.

#1 New Greens:

Tiger’s Eye completed their greens renovation project this September, converting to TifEagle Bermuda grass. This is the same type of grass found at the TPC Sawgrass, home of the Players Championship. The project began on July 23rd, and was completed in timely fashion, reopening on September 22nd. “We’re thrilled that this revitalization is complete, and that our members and guests can resume playing top-level golf,” said Mark Saunders of Ocean Ridge Plantation Golf. Play the 3 other Big Cat Courses (Leopard Chase, Lion’s Paw and Panthers Run), and you can play Tigers Eye for free as part of their great package. Arcadian Shores has installed new Sunday Bermuda greens, in addition to cart path upgrades and the construction of a brand new 3,500 square foot clubhouse. This project was completed in September. Crow Creek is now the home of brand new G7 bent grass greens, after replacing their L93 greens. This G7 variety is more tolerant to the heat of the South Carolina weather. Crow Creek reopened on October 2nd to wide acclaim.

#2 Course Renovations

The Parkland Course at the Legend Resort completed a three month bunker renovation in September. The project included the removal of nearly one third of the 110 bunkers on the course. This move was made to increase the playability of the course, and has been very popular among the local community. This improvement, along with the facelift that the Double Eagle Tavern received last year (adding over 14 televisions and new and improved seating options), and the new fleet of Yamaha golf carts brought in, show that the Legends is committed to providing great value to its customers. Aberdeen Country Club reopened on March 29, after being closed for several months for a major renovation project. Aberdeen Country Club is adjacent to the protected Waccamaw riverfront preserve and loops around scenic wetlands and creeks with towering cypress trees. Like several other facilities along the Grand Strand, the Aberdeen nines and their clubhouse sustained damage in October 2016 from Hurricane Matthew when heavy rains and unprecedented flooding occurred throughout the Carolinas. Faced with the need to make repairs, the course ownership decided to invest not only in course and clubhouse restoration, but to make some design changes, update Aberdeen’s clubhouse and create a new sports bar-style restaurant that has multiple TV screens. The 4,000 square foot clubhouse has been redesigned as a sports-bar style restaurant with four large television

4. TopGolf Is Coming to Myrtle Beach

On June 15th, the Myrtle Beach Community Appearance Board welcomed TopGolf to the city. TopGolf, a sports entertainment community, features golf games for all ages as well as climate-controlled bays, bars and TV viewing areas. Located across from Broadway at the Beach at Grissom Parkway and 29th Ave. North, the 38,382-squarefoot building will be made up of three floors which will include various driving ranges, a restaurant and outdoor patios, offering a place where people can go rain or shine.

5. Golf Digest Major Accolades

June’ s issue of Golf Digest included its biennial rankings of the Top 100 golf courses in America, and this year’s list included two of Myrtle Beach’s best. A Robert Trent Jones, Sr, design, the Dunes Golf & Beach Club is No. 54 in the biennial rankings while Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, the late Mike Strantz’s first solo design, is No. 86. Dunes Club, which opened in 1948, is the Myrtle Beach’s area’s most famed layout. Starting with a clubhouse that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, the Dunes Club delivers a special experience. The classically designed course plays over naturally rolling land and offers stunning visuals throughout. The layout’s most popular stretch is Alligator Alley - holes 11 through 13 - capped by the par 5 13th, a 90-degree dogleg right that plays around Lake Singleton. The course has hosted some of professional golf’s most prominent events, including the U.S. Women’s Open, six Senior PGA Tour Championships, and,

8. New Flights to Myrtle Beach

most recently, the PGA Professional National Championship. Caledonia, which plays amidst centuries old live oak trees draped in Spanish moss, is a modern design carved from a piece of land that oozes history and Southern charm. From the moment players enter the property through a half-mile stretch of road lined on both sides by oak trees, the beauty of Caledonia is evident. On a course full of memorable holes, the 18th stands above as one of the best finishing holes in all of golf. The multi-tiered green rests in the shadow of an antebellum style clubhouse and requires a forced carry over water.

6. Golfweek Names 11 Courses to “Best You Can Play” in NC and SC

The May issue of Golfweek brought further recognition to the Myrtle Beach area. 11 local courses were named to the “Best You Can Play” list for both North and South Carolina. Representing North Carolina was the Bald Head Island Club and Leopards Chase. South Carolina’s list included The Dunes Golf and Beach Club, Caledonia, True Blue, Legends Moorland Course, Tidewater, TPC Myrtle Beach, King’s North, The Heritage Club and the Barefoot Dye Course.

7. Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame Welcomes Two New Members

One man involved in both ends of the Myrtle Beach package business during the initial burgeoning period for the area golf industry, and another largely responsible for the survival and success of the largest single-site amateur tournament in the world will comprise the 2017 class for the Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame. Hotelier and golf course owner Vernon Brake and the late Bob LeComte, who helped save and grow the Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap Championship, were inducted at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 26 in the Hall of Fame Garden at Pine Lakes Country Club. Brake has been an owner of The Breakers hotel for 47 years, was among the original partners of the Myrtle Beach National Company and Arrowhead Country Club, and has served on the boards of several area organizations. Lecomte convinced DuPont executives to sponsor the World Am in 1986 and the title sponsorship lasted for two decades. He served as the tournament’s executive director for 13 years and moved to the Grand Strand for the final 22 years of his life. LeComte died in June 2014 at the age of 83 after battling lung cancer for two years.

Spirit Airlines announced in April the addition of several new direct flights to the area. Included were Niagara Falls (NY)/Toronto (CA), Plattsburgh (NY)/Montreal (CA), Akron/Canton (OH), Hartford (CT), and Pittsburgh (PA). In addition the Myrtle Beach International Airport announced in October plans to target new direct flights from the following markets in the coming months: Houston, Texas; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Peoria or Bloomington, Illinois; South Bend, Indiana; Islip, New York; Nashville, Tennessee; Dulles Airport in Northern Virginia; Flint, Michigan; White Plains, New York; Trenton, New Jersey; Knoxville, Tennessee; Kansas City, Missouri; Louisville, Kentucky; Rockford, Illinois; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Providence, Rhode Island.

9. Barefoot General Manager Named Myrtle Beach Golf Course Employee of the Year

The 2017 MBAGCOA Employee of the Year recipient is Dave Genevro. He was nominated by Mike Ross and Rich Bartram.  Dave was surprised and honored to win the award.  He has been in the Myrtle Beach area for 17 years. Barefoot Resort Head Pro and marketing director Rich Bartram, PGA said Genevro is willing to do just about any task on the property, and has displayed leadership, care for employees and forward thinking throughout his tenure. “He sets the standard for our resort and is always the first one in and the last to leave. He has been the guiding force behind Barefoot Resort & Golf since our inception,” Bartram said. “Under Genevro’s direction, Barefoot Resort was named the 2016 North American Golf Resort of the Year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO). “I’m very excited and proud because I know the list of people who have won this in the past are a lot of people who have done a lot for Myrtle Beach golf,” Genevro said. Dave has been on many local committees and boards for organizations including the MBAGCOA, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday and North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce. Dave Genevro is automatically entered into the South Carolina ‘Employee of the Year’ race, voted by the SCGCOA.

10.Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday Turns 50

The golf marketing cooperative that has helped power the area’s growth into golf’s most popular destination celebrated its 50th anniversary this year. When MBGH was founded in 1967, the Grand Strand had fewer than 10 courses. Today the area is home to multiple top 100 public courses and attracts more golf groups than any other destination in country.
