Tee It Up Grand Strand host Shan Coughlin welcomes Tom Plankers to discuss the International World Tour Golf Links Update for November to talk about another of the historical holes replicated at this unique and beautiful course in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Tom brings you, our listeners, information about their 1st hole on the Championship nine which is the 18th hole at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck New York. Opened in June 1923, 91 years ago, Winged Foot is private and membership is by invitation only.
International World Tour Golf Links has replicated holes from some of the most exclusive private clubs and the most notorious courses across the United States and in the world including St. Andrews, Pinehurst #2, Amen Corner from Augusta National and Pine Valley. Mel Graham, who designed and selected the holes, seamlessly put them together at this course in Myrtle Beach South Carolina to allow players to get a taste of 19 of golf’s greatest holes. Yes, that is right, they have 19 actual holes. The 19th hole is used when the maintenance staff needs to work on a hole or by players when they need to settle a bet or just warm up before their round. Listen to Tom’s stories about the events that have occurred at Winged Foot along with a brief history.
International World Tour is a must add to your next Myrtle Beach Golf Vacation or Golf Break. Where else can you play a 4 1/2 hour round that includes holes from 3 continents, multiple countries and states within the United States. Along the round you can read the bronze placards that give the history of the hole, where it is from and other pertinent facts. The best part is if these placards didn’t exist, and you didn’t immediately recognize the hole from television broadcasts or if they were from exclusive clubs, you would still leave knowing you played a fantastic golf course of amazing golf holes.
