MYRTLE BEACH – Myrtle Beach golf courses are once again open for business.
All but two Myrtle Beach golf courses reopened to the public Oct. 3 after they closed due to Hurricane Ian hitting the Grand Strand.
Dunes Golf & Beach Club and Arcadian Shores Golf Club are both scheduled to reopen on October 5.
Ian brought high winds, rain and storm surge, but moved quickly through the area, sparing the Myrtle Beach courses from major structural damage. The courts were forced to clean up debris and downed trees in some cases, but Ian left no lasting impact on the courts in the area.
“Our thoughts and prayers remain with the residents of Fort Myers and across Florida who were forced to bear the brunt of the fury of Hurricane Ian,” said Kyle Oland, director of marketing for Golf Tourism Solutions, the company responsible for promoting Myrtle Beach as a golf course. destination. “Myrtle Beach area golf courses were fortunate to avoid significant damage, and we are thrilled to have players on the course again. Groups planning fall trips to the region can expect to find our courses in generally exceptional condition.
One of the courses reopened for business is the Grande Dunes Resort Club, which recently reopened on September 15 following a four-month restoration project. The Myrtle Beach area has 90 golf courses.
