SOUTH CAROLINA GOLF CENTER OPENS at SHAFTESBURY GLEN

State-of-the-Art Instruction School Led By Former PGA Tour Pro Hugh Royer III Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday announces the South Carolina Golf Center at Shaftesbury Glen opened its sparkling new facility, led by former PGA Tour player Hugh Royer III, on November 1. The South Carolina Golf Center offers men, women and junior golfers of all skill levels the opportunity to improve or learn the game of golf. South Carolina Golf Center is a V-1 Digital Coaching System Branded Academy, which provides each student with a comprehensive analysis of their swing. The Golf Center clubhouse is an 1,800-square-foot building with hitting bays, state-of-the-art technology, and a lounge area complete with flat screen televisions and multiple couches. Among the amenities available to golf center students are the V1 Digital Coaching System, Flightscope, a launch monitor that will help players understand their game and the equipment they need to succeed, and a gas fireplace in the lounge area for the cooler months. “What I think we’ve tried to create is a comfortable atmosphere for people who want to take lessons, practice and get better at golf,” Royer said. “The way I teach is very simple. The technical stuff is in there, but I try not to confuse or overwhelm (students). I tell everyone I teach I want the golf swing to be simple, yet efficient.” While Royer, who had four wins on the Web.com Tour and spent three years on the PGA Tour, played the game at the highest levels and has taught several top players since retiring from professional golf in 2001, the South Carolina Golf Center will cater to players of all skill levels. Royer and his staff will provide individual instruction, in addition to offering 1-, 2- and 3-day golf schools and junior clinics. The golf schools, which will feature 3 hours of daily instruction and a nine-hole playing lesson, will range in price from $200 to $400. Golf school participants will receive video analysis and evaluation in addition to game improvement recommendations. Shaftesbury Glen also offers the added luxury of having apartments above the clubhouse where golf school students (or players on a golf package) can stay. The two-bedroom units are new, spacious and include a full kitchen and living room. Players will also have the opportunity to purchase a monthly range membership for $30 that includes access to clinics and the launch monitor.
