A cooler is standard golf gear for Myrtle Beach and the WA. The first year I played I did not know you could bring one. On the second day the course we were playing my group saw the beverage cart on our first hole and the last. It was about 98 that day and there was no water on the course. Thank fully I had taken a couple of bottles of water out with me. Freeze bottles and use them as your ice, it will defrost very quickly.
