You want old-time, South Carolina living? Try the Pine Lakes Country Club. It bills itself as the "granddaddy" of Myrtle Beach golf, and it's hard to argue with that, considering the 62-room antebellum club opened in 1927.
The clubhouse is surrounded by old oaks, befitting the ambience, and towering pines. Azaleas bloom in the spring. Henry Booth Luce's Sports Illustrated Magazine was founded here in 1954.
You want more? White-gloved caddymasters clad in Scottish attire, some of whom have been working there for 40 years, greet you at the door. The only time they let you handle your clubs is when you're playing with them, the clubs not the caddymasters. Their assistants will wash your clubs and shine your shoes.
Then there's the food, including the homemade clam chowder whose recipe dates back 40 years. When it's cool, you get hot chocolate on the first tee and when it's hot you get mimosas on the course. T
he clubhouse is private for the members, but arrangements have been made for guest play through a "very select" group of member hotels. For example, I could never get in. Oh, the course? Well, it's 6,701 yards from the back tees with a very playable, but not too playable, slope rating of 128.
