Welcome Arcadian Shores Golf Club
Frank Coughlin, PGA General Manager joins host of Tee It UP Grand Strand, Shan Coughlin as TheGolfDirector.com says Welcome Arcadian Shores Golf Club of Myrtle Beach South Carolina to its family of golf courses. This show is specifically designed to keep you, the golfer, up on all the latest news and information on your favorite courses. This is a certainly a good one. Award winning and opened in 1974, it is the first golf course designed by architect Rees Jones. You will see his signature throughout. From one of the many sand traps specifically placed for aesthetic and/or shot making purposes, to the water features including the pond with the fountain in front of the elevated 14th green, you will be challenged while appreciating this old school design.
As the choice location for many local charity events as well as corporate outings, Arcadian Shores has the reputation for treating local and visiting golfers as if they have been members for years. Southern hospitality and good old fashion manners are what Coughlin says are an important mainstay of getting golfers to come and more importantly, to come back. He also heralds the Head Greens Keeper Eric Cavelli. He says that once golfers get there, the conditions on the course play the largest role in their overall experience. With a recent management change and record setting rainfall, these two have worked together to ensure the best possible conditions inside and out.
During this interview, Coughlin also shares information on his favorite hole, the challenges and opportunities for winter golf and officially announces the coming of a new clubhouse to the facility. As someone who grew up at the beach, he played Arcadian Shores for years before becoming the General Manager. He says, “There are very few courses this close to the ocean where you can truly get the beach resort experience.” This summer, golfers will enjoy that experience beginning with a new clubhouse. For those playing now, Frank has a few tips on how to keep scores in good shape even when the temperature dips a bit. “At least we can play, even if it does require layers,” he says. He follows that up with an invitation for all to get out of the cold and visit Myrtle Beach and Arcadian Shores Golf Club.
