Letter | Supply and demand ‘revenue’ woes fuel fate of Myrtle Beach golf courses

It may not be well known, but Myrtle Beach golf history reveals that in 1950 there existed only two courses, Pine Lakes and The Dunes Golf & Beach Club.

Unexpectedly the shops and hotels became extremely quiet, and eventually closed. It was then that golf opened up for play on the Strand.
