Crow Creek Golf Club April 2016 Update by The golf DirectorCrow Creek Golf Club April 2016 Update

For this Crow Creek Golf Club April 2016 Update, host Michelle Cantey caught up with PGA Head Golf Professional Jimmy Biggs.

The azaleas are blooming, the course is green, the parking lot is full and tee sheets are full as well. We’re in the heart of peak golf season here in sunny Myrtle Beach. Crow Creek has golfers from all across the United States and Canada enjoying some lush fairways and those speedy bent grass greens.  Known for their heavy rye over seeding, Crow Creek’s fairways were looking really good.

Golfers are often curious as to why, here at the beach, we’re asked to ride the fairways instead of the rough.  This time of year the Bermuda grass rough is still somewhat dormant. Dormant grass areas are inherently wetter that areas where the grass is actively growing and drinking us the moisture.  Therefore, a fairway that has been over seeded with rye will be dryer than the rough. Jimmy Biggs explains this practice keeps from damaging the rough. while in its dormant state. The fairways normally have no trouble handling the traffic.  Golfers are usually asked to enter the fairways at 90 degrees and remain in the fairways until they reach the exit point, at which they should exit at 90 degrees.

We were very impressed at the inventory inside the pro shop at Crow Creek. Mr. Biggs is known around the beach as being a leader when it comes to colorful golf attire. The Crow Creek pro shop is loaded with a great selection of Nike, Puma, Ahead, and other golf brands.
