    I recently took private lessons from David at Mel Sole Golf School. I have been playing golf for about 25 years and have averaged 2-4 lessons each of those years with other instructors. David almost immediately identified an imperfection in my swing which has had the largest positive impact in my game compared to any previous lessons. He has made golf fun for me again!

    Atalaya Castle was built as a winter home in the early 1930s by Archer & Anna Huntington. The “Moorish-style” architecture, though subtle, is eye-catching, especially in the courtyard. Being near the coast, there are maintenance issue in this open-air structure, but it’s easy to see what could have been almost 100 years ago. The area that kept drawing me back was the gorgeous, center courtyard. Its open, off-set brick walkway is lined with palm trees and topped with a 40-ft water tower. This stunning setting was a great find for a Myrtle Beach family activity.

    There is a reason Steve Dresser Golf Academy has so many 5 Star Reviews. They are outstanding. I just finished 3 one hour private lessons with Mike Rugg. I have taken a lot of lessons over the years. Mike is one of the very best!!
    Thanks Mike!

    We weren't able to go in but could see in the windows. Lovely church, lots of natural light. Serene and peaceful cemetery surrounding it.

    If you prefer getting away from the busyness of Myrtle Beach, this is a great place! Our family preferred the Pawley's Island area, as it had that sleepy, vacation island feel, and it was away from the chaos. The only downfall is that we didn't see any public restrooms or rinse off stations when leaving the beach (hence the 4 stars). It's only a short drive to the Walgreens across the marsh if you need to use the restroom or get some beach supplies. The little historic district is quaint and nice that it gives the history of the island.

    This gallery features the works of several professional artists from throughout the United States. It is upscale and the pieces are really very well done. Currently they are featuring two sculptors with outstanding bronze figures. There are wonderful paintings - some very large which are also very well done. The gallery represents about 8 artists and it is well worth the visit - you may easily succumb and purchase!

    This is a really lovely home converted into gallery, featuring several local artists who have very varied styles and mediums. Had a chance to chat with one of the owners who has her art displayed as well. Some very unique techniques are represented. If you like viewing art work you should consider visiting this gallery.

    Our son and now daughter in law were married there. Towards sunset, the tide was in and the sun setting was perfect for pictures. The chapel is small but in pandemic times, it was the right size for our small gathering.

    We have not been to the new location in Georgetown. The original museum in Pawleys Island was worth a visit. Really depends on your interest level of Gullah history.

    This is a great tennis facility with clinics and open courts for visitors and residents. The facility is beautiful with 8 hard courts and 2 clay courts. There are clinics for all ages and skill levels. It makes for a great break from the beach while on vacation.

    Wonderful rental experience with Ben from PawleysKayaks. He was prompt, generous, and made everything easy. We rented 2 bikes for the week and they were perfect. Great way to explore the island and get some exercise. Would highly recommend renting from them!!

    Great shop. Staff is very helpful. Bikes are excellent. Bike trail very close. Bike and helmut adjusted perfectly. Staff was extremely cooperative when I had to change my reservation dates because of Hurricane Ian. Highly recommend. I'm a repeat renter and will continue to rent again.
