Meredith: We are at the beautiful River Club golf course in Pawleys Island South Carolina, standing on hole number 18, one of the best finishing holes here in Myrtle Beach golf. Joining me is head golf professional Christa Bodensteiner. Christa, thanks for having us out.
Christa: Absolutely, glad to have you today, Meredith.
Meredith: I want to talk a little bit about hole number 18, and also about some other holes here at River Club.
Christa: Yes. Number 18 is probably one of the more memorable holes here at River Club. Although we have a lot of them. 18 is just a great finishing hole, I think it’s the best finishing hole in the whole Myrtle Beach area. It’s a par five where you have an opportunity to cut across the water two times, and probably have a chance for eagle, or play smart and play around the outside where it is a par five, a legitimate par five. People either love this hole or hate this hole, but either way they love to come back and play it.
Meredith: Yes, it is definitely a fun hole. It can make or break you really when you come out here. If you come with a group of people and you’re playing a game and you’re having a great match, well number 18 really is a game changer.
Christa: It is. You will remember this golf hole.
Meredith: I think that’s why so many people and groups come out here to play.
Christa: It’s one of the many reasons, I think. We do get a lot of repeat golfers here. I think it’s all part of the package, they love number 18. They love the golf course in general. We have a lot of memorable holes out there, it’s a championship style course so there’s just a lot of great golf holes. It’s beautifully landscaped, it’s always in great shape. We’re very well known for our conditions actually out here. We have a fully stocked golf shop, a wonderful grill and a wonderful staff. I think a combination of all those things brings a lot of people back to River Club.
Meredith: Yes, so many reasons to come out here and play. Just talking about the condition of the course, it’s phenomenal. It’s awesome. You come out here, you’re always going to find the golf course in great shape. You’ve got some great holes, 18, number 14 is another good hole.
Meredith: Yeah, the par three?
Christa: 14 is a par three with an island green, a beautiful golf hole. Nice little challenge.
Meredith: Ah, it’s gorgeous. You have a lot of water out here. Let’s talk a little bit about the water and the bunkers. Also we want to tell our viewers, it is player friendly. Don’t be intimidated by the amount of water and bunkers that you’ll find out here. Right?
Christa: Exactly. Actually we do have water on 14 of the 18 holes, and we have almost 100 bunkers. But like you said Meredith, don’t let that intimidate you. It adds to the aesthetics of it, but you don’t necessarily have to go in every one of them.
Meredith: That’s right, exactly. If somebody wants to come play golf here at River Club, how can they get in touch with you guys?
