Today we met the man behind the hat...the Forum's very own Undercover Golf Pro @ the Surf Club. 

First of all, if you get a chance to play with UGP, do it. Really enjoyed our round together...just wish I had played a little better. I did get a good tip/swing thought on about the 3rd hole that has been very helpful.

Surf Club was in prime condition. I had forgotten how much undulation was in the greens there & they were smooth & fast! 

Back to no overseed around the greens & when I did miss a green (most of them) I usually was short-sided & hitting from a very tight lie.

If conditions are your priority, Surf Club has to win the "Best bang for the buck" award.

When you can thoroughly enjoy a round of golf while shooting a horrendous score, it's a sure thing you're on a great course with good company.  That suns it up right there.

Myrtlewood Palmetto

Surf Club was closed for maintenance that afternoon, so couple quick texts to Brian & we headed down to Myrtlewood. 

Hadn't played here in quite a few years, but Brian said he had played there last week & the greens were awesome.

Very busy at the bag drop, esp for the Monday after Easter, but we got off on time & for the first time this trip, we found ourselves waiting between shots, but still got around in about 4 hours.

Course was in great shape...best we've ever seen it. Greens were smooth and a good speed. Some water still being pumped out of fairway bunkers, but to be expected after the rains last Friday.

Palmetto filled the bill perfectly as a last minute fill in to complete our 3rd day in a row of 36/day. Walk in rate was $66.

I tried to post a picture of me & UGP, but kept getting an error message, so I'll leave it to him to add it in a reply.

Enjoyed the round at Surf - Skippy was good for my game at the courses we played together - missed shooting my age at Sandpiper on a long lip out on the 18th hole.

As you can see, we have way too many tall golfers on MBGT

Thanks for this report. If you want to learn how to hit a golf ball, play with UGP when you are in Myrtle Beach. This guy is good.

S....t  Long cigars last longer - it's physics, just like a golf swing.
