Flavor of the Week: Sam Snead’s Grille

2017-10-20T10:21:57+00:00

Flavor of the Week: Sam Sneads Grille Here at Coastal Golfaway, golf and eating rank as some of our favorite hobbies. While many say eating is a necessity and not a hobby, we completely disagree, we are huge admirers of the culinary arts. This past weekend we were treated to a fantastic meal at Sam Snead’s Grille located off of Highway 501, almost directly across from the Legends Golf Resort. It all begins when you enter the front door, it is half museum half 19th hole which adds to the luster and allure of the place. You have mementos from the Country Club of Brookline, old Wilson Staff Clubs, and my favorite part about the place was the murals of famous holes from across the globe, and even pictures form all of Snead’s major victories.

Course of the Week: Prestwick Country Club Prestwick Country Club is a Pete and P.B Dye design located in the heart of Myrtle Beach.

Golf Digest recently recognized it as "One of the Nation's Five Best Kept Secret Golf Courses” and rates it at 4.5 stars out of 5. It is one of the tougher courses in Myrtle. It is an extremely well sculpted layout as one would expect with it being a Dye Course, the difference being Prestwick has water come into play quite often. So I would bring few balls. The best part of Prestwick is its inclusion in the The Myrtle Beach Elite Package, which is

Filling the Fantasy Void Left by Football

2017-10-20T11:44:50+00:00

If you are like me fantasy football is a weekly ritual during the fall football season. Studying, creating lineups, talking junk to your friends, and hopefully unlike me you won some games. The Super Bowl ends the fantasy football season, however The Waste Management Open ushers in a new and equally entertaining season. The Fantasy Golf Season! Like fantasy football it really makes watching the tournaments exciting, because each week you have a stake in the tournament, whether its money, bragging rights,  a humiliating bet between friends, or your first child's name. My roommate is the one who initially got me into fantasy golf. The concept is simple, each week you get a salary cap to pick 6 golfers you expect to do well, and it enters you into a contest versus thousands of people

This restaurant and bar have been a staple in the Myrtle Beach area for over thirty years now. It has been a watering hole for Jerry’s group since the inception of “The Other Masters” 23 years ago. Rossi’s the restaurant prepares your standard Italian dishes while incorporating local seafood to add flair to its menu. Jerry’s favorite meal is the veal parmesan, and being from the densely populated areas of New York and New Jersey he can attest to its quality. If you would like a little more low key dining experience step on over to Eighty-Eight’s Piano bar and try Johnny’s favorite, the Hot Antipasti Tray that feeds 3-4 people. It includes blackened beef tips, fried lobster, mussel’s marinara, fried soft shell crab, crab cakes, and fried calamari. The bartenders also really know how
