KIDS PLAY FREE PROGRAM
Arrowhead Country Club, a 27-hole facility located in Myrtle Beach, S.C., has implemented a "Kids Play Free" program. Junior golfers 16 and under who are accompanied by a paying adult can play the Ray Floyd and Tom Jackson design free of charge. There are no restrictions on tee times for junior golfers. "The 'Kids Play Free' program is a tremendous way to give back to the game of the golf and expose people to Arrowhead Country Club," said Eddie Dennis, Arrowhead's head golf professional. "This program will allow families to play at Arrowhead, one of the Grand Strand's most popular facilities, at a tremendous price. We are looking forward to welcoming juniors to Arrowhead." Arrowhead, which earned four stars in Golf Digest's most recent Places to Play guide, offers three distinct nines - The Lakes, The Cypress and The Waterway. Each nine offers four sets of tees, making the course playable for golfers of all skill levels. The course isn't exceptionally long, Cypress is the longest of the three at 3,349 yards, but each layout places an emphasis on accuracy off the tee. Fairway mounding is one of the facility's defining characteristics and water comes into play on 24 of 27 holes, including several holes that offer spectacular views of the Intracoastal Waterway.
