On April 22nd, our hosting provider suffered a very serious cyber attack (some of the details can be found here – https://www.a2hosting.com/blog/windows-service-update/). As part of the recovery process, they had to perform a system restoration which has caused us to lose about 1 week of posts (plus the week we were offline so that is why recent posts are saying 2 weeks old). We are still trying to get back the archive site; however, that is looking doubtful at this point in time as the software had some vulnerabilities and may not be permitted to be turned back on even if they can recover the data.
Thank you for your patience during this time.
Update – May 31, 2019
We are happy to announce that almost all functionality has been restored and we have migrated to a new platform which will also speed up the site (something that has been asked for). Unfortunately, we have not yet found a way to securely host the forum archive, so it remains offline for now.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding.
First Golf Course In Myrtle Beach....
I was just wondering if forum members can remember the first course they ever played while visiting Myrtle Beach??
For myself.... it was Oyster Bay in the fall of 1995!! I fell in love with Myrtle Beach and have been taking fall golf trips with my buddies ever since!! It will be interesting to see some of the answers and if these courses are still open.
Sandpiper Bay when I was 12. My Dad, my cousin, and my cousin's Dad played. My cousin, who is the same age, and I were so pumped to play golf on vacation with the big guys. Come to think of it, it's my 25th year Myrtle Beach golf playing anniversary this year!
Gator Hole in August 1988.
Waterway Hills in 1995
2000 First trip to MB Bay Tree gold.
River Club, August 2005
1981 - Bay Tree Green and Gold
( I miss Gator Hole and Marsh Harbor more than any other courses)
Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars
Robbers Roost for me in late 70's
My first foray to Nirvana was Arcadian Shores 1999. Also the first time seeing Gators on a course . One gator sunning himself on 13 green was massive.
Nothin Could be Finer !!!!!!
For me it was Bay Tree Gold
One of the Myrtlewood courses in 1982, don't remember which one. Crazy week that third week of March was. Began the week in shorts and some pool time, then on Thursday a cold hard rain chased us off of one of the Bay Tree courses. That rain eventually turned into a couple inches of snow, which the natives had no idea how to handle. 😆
It was Arcadian Shores.
Blackmoor... way back in July 1993 on my first ever trip in Myrtle Beach with my wife!
Quebec City, Canada
For me the year was 1971, my dad and I had 18 courses to choose from and Robber's Roost was my first, played it just after a great article in Golf Digest on the course and at that time it did not disappoint, even tried to hit a wedge into the bushel basket on the back side Par 5 they had on top of an old tree, nothing but water and missed the mark terribly.
