It’s been a tumultuous summer across the country, and we’ve endured our share of drama as well, so we wanted to update you about the latest happenings here in Myrtle Beach.
We are starting with good news: Hurricane Isaias passed through late Monday night/early Tuesday morning and largely spared the area. We had wind and rain, leading to debris cleanup Tuesday morning, but every course along the Grand Strand is reopened.
There will be no short or long term consequences from the storm. All our courses came through it well and should be in great shape for the fall golf season.
We, understandably, continue to get inundated with questions about COVID-19. South Carolina had an unwanted turn in the national spotlight as a result of the virus, but here is what you need to know about the situation right now: the number of cases in Horry County (home to Myrtle Beach) have declined precipitously.
For the record, nobody is declaring victory but with the combination of people following mask ordinances, social distancing recommendations, and to some extent, the virus running its natural course, the view from on the ground here in Myrtle Beach is certainly more optimistic than it was at the beginning of July.
What does that mean for your golf trip? Everyone has to decide when they are ready to travel – that’s a personal decision. That being said, I feel comfortable in saying the golf course is about as safe an environment as you will find. Groups can check in and get to their carts without having to come into contact with anyone and from there, the game is naturally socially distant.
People who are itching to take a trip are no more right or wrong than those who have opted to sit 2020 out. What we can promise you, is that Myrtle Beach golf courses have made every effort possible to ensure golfers enjoy a safe environment.
If you are ready to travel, we hope to see you in Myrtle Beach this fall.
