This edition of Tee It Up Grand Strand takes us to The International Club of Myrtle Beach. General Manager, Doug Donner and his staff are cruising through the fall and into the winter golf season with the golf course in fantastic shape. It has to be high on the list of places to play this winter for local and visiting golfers alike. With daily discounted rates as well as special offers for package golf, International Club will not disappoint.
Today we run through some helpful tips that will allow golfers to get the most out of their experience at “The hidden gem of Myrtle Beach”. The facility has so much to offer and it starts as soon as golfers arrive at the course.
First of all pulling up to the clubhouse is a experience all to itself. The huge round about directly in front of the clubhouse and bag drop is designed as one very large compass. The painted brick and concrete is impossible to miss and will grab the attention of guest right out of the gate. We haven’t even stepped foot inside yet.
The 6400 square-foot building is designed after the European clubhouses of the old courses. A fully stocked golf shop along with a large bar area with a complete bar runs all along the right hand side of the building. The spacious dining area is perfect to hang out with the guys after a round. It is also a perfect place to host large groups for charity golf events or just have a party that is totally unrelated to golf.
Just outside the back of the clubhouse is 1 of the largest practice putting greens in the Myrtle Beach area. Make sure to get a few practice putts in here before taking on some of the quickest greens around. Always fast and smooth, the putting surfaces at International Club are a treat to putt. Also take advantage of the large driving range and short game facility before heading to the first tee.
Here are are few things to know now that we are ready to tee it up. Each hole has 5 sets of tees to allow golfers of all ages and skill levels a set of tees that will fit their game. The sprinkler heads in the fairways are measured to the center of the green. The flags on the greens are red, white and yellow for front, middle and back pin placement. Use the new Caddy Card scoring system on the golf carts to keep score as well as receive playing tips throughout the round.
