Myrtle Beach Golf Courses Sold!
Two area Myrtle Beach Golf Courses have been sold in the last week. The first being Cypress Bay Golf Club in Little River, South Carolina. Located on the Northern end of the Grand Strand, Cypress Bay was the first and only golf course in the area that had runway for planes to land. golfers could fly in on small planes and get a round or two in before hopping on the plane and leaving. Cypress Bay was built in 1972 and designed by Russell Breeden. The course measured 6,5000 yards from the back tees. The signature hole at Cypress Bay was the Par 3 8th hole that hugged Hwy 17. Golfers and locals may have not played the course but have had to pass the location.   The course was bought in the mid 2000`s by Mungo homes. The builder resubmitted a redevelopment in 2006 but with the housing market crash, the group kept the course open. Cypress Bay Golf Club will officially close on March 1st, 2014 . The second golf course in Myrtle Beach that recently has been sold is the Grande Dunes Members Club. A Nick Price design that opened in 2005, is a Par 71 that stretches just over 7,000 yards from the Championship tees. The course was bought by LStar Management and will be partnering with McConnell Golf to over see the daily golf operations. This will be McConnell Golf second managed course on the Grand Strand. The first being the Private Greg Norman design, The Reserve Club in Pawleys Island. The course will be closed to the public and become completely private.   The Grande Dunes...

Why Do Courses in Myrtle Beach Double Tee ?

Posted by : | On : 29-04-2013 | Comments Off on Why Do Courses in Myrtle Beach Double Tee ?
Why Do Courses in Myrtle Beach Double Tee ?
  Most golfers visiting Myrtle Beach love mid morning tee times. What they do not know is that most courses do not offer mid morning tee times for one reason, money! The term “Double Tee” means that golf courses will start groups off the 1st and 10th hole at the same time. If a golf course in Myrtle Beach started every group playing that day on the 1st hole, that would leave the back nine open for about 2 hours and 15 mins, depending on the tee time increments each course operates. Why is this a problem? It would leave about 15 open tee times. At 4-golfers per tee time, that is a lot of golfers and a lot of lost revenue. If a golf course has an average green fee of $50 per golfer, that is an additional $3,000 per day in green and cart fees only that the course is not making.  Not to mention lost revenue in the pro shop and food and beverage. On the higher end, if a golf course has an average green fee of $200 per golfer, that could be $12,000 per day of money lost, again depending on the tee time schedule. When planing your next Myrtle Beach Golf Package keep in mind, the majority of golf courses do not have open tee times after 9:30 am depending on the course.

The Championship 9 features holes inspired by all four men’s major championships: The Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship.
