Welcome, I know you will have a great time. Every time I have brought 1st timers, they end up coming back over and over. In fact two have moved to the greater Myrtle Beach area. Come with expectations of enjoying yourself, you will meet some great people and play some great courses. Although every year some courses have issues, the over all experience you will have will be great. I now come 6 days early so get use to the heat, time zone and play extra golf. Hope you have a great time and you keep the ball in the short grass.
