Myrtle Beach’s busy October golf season is in full flight, accentuated by a European flavour on this week’s debut of Golf Channel’s “Big Break Myrtle Beach” reality show and the re-opening of Tidewater Golf Club, one of the gems on the Grand Strand.
Myrtle Beach’s busiest golf season is in the spring, but autumn offers cooler post-summer weather with golf courses in their ultimate condition.
“Big Break Myrtle Beach” debuts yesterday, Oct. 7, on Golf Channel and runs for 11 episodes until mid-December. The popular reality series has been a stepping stone to professional golf for a number of players. This year’s 12-player field includes two European players, Austria’s Carolin Pineggar and Latvia’s Krista Puisite, both with promising resumes. Previous “Big Break” shows have been filmed in Europe at Carnoustie and St. Andrews, Scotland, and the K Club in Ireland. International viewers can watch the show at www.golfchannel.com/tv/big-break-myrtle-beach on a weekly basis each Wednesday, the day after it airs in the United States
