2023 Myrtlewood Golf Club Results

The 2023 has started out with 4 sell outs in a row! We held the TRUSTED HOME SERVICES SUPER BOWL CLASSIC this past weekend Feb. 11-12 at Myrtlewood Golf Club. Special thanks to Jeff House and his entire team and Trusted Home Services. We had only booked course for 60 players and ended up with 17 on waiting list. Thanks to Dustin Powers and his team at Myrtlewood Golf Club Pine for allowing us to squeeze the remaining players in. The beginning of the week it didn’t appear we would able to play due to the weather forecast. Dustin and I were in contact several times a day debating whether to postpone the event. We crossed our fingers and with all the players traveling in from other states, we took a chance and it paid off. The rain came in Friday night and thought we may have made a bad decision but with a lot of prayer the rain pretty much wasn’t a factor on Saturday. It was windy and cold but didn’t rain too much until we were setting up the Pine Hills course about 4 on Saturday. We were CPO but pace of play was great. We ended up teeing off 67 players when 7 players decided not to come out. The staff at Myrtlewood is one of the best in the Myrtle beach area for sure. time.  Pace of Play was awesome.  We averaged 4hrs 39 mins with our fastest round of 4.11 and slowest of 5.05 on Saturday at Palmetto and that was CPO. Keep in mind the course was full and we ran into public play when making the turn. Again, thanks to all of our players and the course staff for helping with this. We pride ourselves in pace of play! 67 players began play around 8.00. We also had players visit from 13 APT Chapters from as far away as Iowa. Thanks to all that came. The prize fund is just one of the things that separate us from other tours. We paid out a total of $9030 for this event. $5760 was in the prize fund and $3270 was in Skins and Pins. Not too bad with 67 players especially compared to our competitors when they have almost twice as many players in an event.  

Division 1 was smaller this event with 6 players and was close after day 1. Luke Nelson (76) from (MB) held a 2 shot lead over Derek Nahrwold (MB) and Greg Moore (Upstate) (78). Chris Collins and Darryl Phelps both from (MB) were 3 shotts back at (79). Day 2 we moved to Pine Hills and Luke started out on fire and never looked back. He fired a career round (66 , -6) to take capture his 1st win by 6 shots. Greg Moore also played great and carded a -2 (70) to take 2nd place.

When they made the turn, Charles had made the turn at 38 and had grabbed the lead by 1 shot over Travis. The back 9 did not disappoint. It went to the very end. Charles held a 1 shot lead going into the final hole and slipped and made a bogey and Travis made a par to make it all square.
