Governor Nikki Haley ordered an evacuation of the South Carolina coast, including parts of Myrtle Beach, with Hurricane Matthew churning in the Atlantic. With the storm making its way up the Florida coast, South Carolina is preparing for its brush with the hurricane this weekend.
As of Friday morning, Hurricane Matthew’s track, while still unpredictable, is beginning to come into focus. The most recent forecast has the storm weakening and turning in an easterly direction, eventually moving away from the South Carolina coast

If the forecast track holds, Matthew’s impact on the Myrtle Beach golf scene and Myrtle Beach golf courses will be a lot of wind and rain, resulting in a washout this weekend. We are hopeful courses will reopen Sunday or Monday and normal operations will resume quickly

In the interim, let's hope, most importantly, everyone in the storm's path stays safe and damage is as limited as possible.
