One week following Hurricane Florence, we can still see a lot of devastating photos of the destruction that it brought across the Carolinas. In Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, most of the golf courses as well as resorts have already reopened and started to prepare for October, which is the second busiest golf tourism month of the year for the region. The Grand Strand, which spans sixty miles from Brunswick County, North Carolina to Pawley’s Island South Carolina, was battered by the hurricane, however, the golf courses of the region managed to weather the storm.
According to the Golf Tourism Solutions, which promotes the area, 70 area golf courses opened by September 21. However, five golf courses remained closed. One of them is Long Bay. The course was opened however, it remained inaccessible because the roads remained unpassable. Most hotels have also reopened but as expected, some remained close due to the storm damage.
The CEO of Golf Tourism Solutions, Bill Golden, said they were excited to have golf players flock Myrtle Beach golf courses. He added that visitors can expect sunny skies as well as quality Myrtle Beach golf course conditions. Golden also said that the Myrtle Beach golf community was fortunate after what had happened. They look forward to the golf season this fall but their thoughts remained with those in North and South Carolina who really felt the effect of Hurricane Florence. Golden’s firm also reported that they still had to a lot of cleanup after the storm. But, the golf courses did not suffer major structural damages.
