This edition of Tee It UP Grand Strand features Possum Trot Golf Course in North Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Located on the main thoroughfare, Highway 17, this locals’ favorite has earned the reputation as the “Friendliest Course on the Strand”. As one of the oldest courses along the Grand Strand of the Myrtle Beach area, Possum Trot Golf Club is a family friendly golf course, but from the tips, gives you all the distance and challenge you could want. Only single handicappers are asked to play the championship tees, but there are five sets of them so you are sure to find the right ones for you. Listen and watch as our host, Shan Coughlin, goes onsite to visit with the PGA General Manager and Head Golf Professional Bill Hulett for the November 2015 update and then come back each month to see what is new at “The Trot”.
Bill and Shan talk about the many charitable events held at Possum Trot including the one going behind them in the distance. They are standing behind the 18th green, the infamous “Oh No” hole, and even help a player locate their ball from an errant shot. Again, this is the “Friendliest Course on the Beach”. This par 5 is a fantastic finishing hole where you approach shot to the green is over the iconic post and fountain you can see in the video. So to play this course, listen as Bill also tells Shan about the many ways to make your tee time as there are online booking options and vacation booking options. The Glens Group vacation packaging service offers many specials ad Possum Trot is part of their “Myrtle Beach Best” package. Not to mention right here at The Golf Director #justcallDave 844-GoGolf1.
There is a special they have put together highlighting the best Myrtle Beach has to offer where you plan for and play three rounds, then they book a 4th round at Possum Trot and give you replays at three of the four courses you have played. That is eight rounds of golf when you pay for three. That’s awesome.
One area that is often overlooked but must be mentioned is the practice facility. With the central location and multiple practice areas including putting green, pitching green, bunkers and hitting areas, you will always have the space to work on the part of your game that needs it most. It is also home to the Hugh Royer Golf Academy, home to PGA touring professional Hugh Royer III who works with aspiring youth, high school, and college athletes as well as adults.
