On The Links
Hello! My name is Scott Thrailkill. I wanted to take this time to introduce myself to you. I am the new golf director at Myrtle Beach SeaSide Resorts. I was raised in a small town in Southern Illinois. At the age of 5, I discovered my love for the game of golf. I played golf in high school, college, and I still love the game now as much as I did then.

Over the past ten years, I have worked on both the golf course and golf package sides of the business. Although the golf course was great, there is something to be said about providing golfers with an experience of a lifetime. As a package provider, my focus is on providing you with the best package that I possibly can.

For me, the game is becoming more fun every day. Now more so than ever, since I get to take my 2-year-old little girl out to the course late in the afternoons to enjoy the game that both her mother and I love so much. This kind of passion is what I will bring to each and every one of your golf vacations.

With six resorts and over 85 courses in the area, we are sure to have a package that will work for you. If not, we can customize one that will. Our six resorts offer a wide array of accommodations options from standard hotel rooms to luxurious 3 bedroom oceanfront condos. Also, we have resorts in both Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, so whether you are looking to play north or south - we have you covered.

We have released several of our new fall and winter packages and I have seen some really good specials, including a four round special where you can receive a $100 Gift Card< for each person playing. To find out more, please give me a call or send me an Email and I will help you plan an amazing golf vacation. I look forward to working with all of you now and in the future. Please "like" us on Facebook at Myrtle Beach Seaside Resorts Golf Center for specials, course conditions, and local golf news!

Sincerely,
Scott TrailKill, Director of Golf
Myrtle Beach Seaside Resorts,
1-800-682-5699 ext. 5522

Groups
"We were down for a wedding party that consisted of about 75 guests. The staff was ready to help for all "problems" that would arise. The rooms were clean and the view is unbelievable! The pier is connected to the resort (but an additional fee is required to enter the pier). The food in the restaurant is great and the bartenders do a great job. Would recommend for a family trip. Be advised that the rooms across the street do have an ocean view also." Barbara Carver (Boston, MA)

Guest Comments
"Our family has been staying exclusively at The Prince Resort for nearly a decade now. We love it to the point that we will not consider staying anywhere else during our beach trips. The lobby is lovely and vibrant. The condos are very spacious and comfortable. Great views! One of our favorite parts is the lazy river. We always stay in Tower 2 where it is located. We are people who adore the beach and the ocean, but we find ourselves spending a lot of time in the lazy river here! The staff from housekeeping and maintenance workers, to the front desk employees have always been nothing but professional, friendly and courteous. We enjoy the proximity of the resort to the Cherry Grove Pier. It is an easy walk down to the IGA grocery store and gift shops. The community is very quaint with a sort of 1950's feel. It's not loud and rowdy like Myrtle Beach. No matter where we travel with our kids (ages 10 and 11) the first place that they always want to return to is to the Prince Resort! mpKoalas (Huntington, West Virginia) via TripAdvisor

"You can't beat the views from this hotel! The rooms are wall-to-wall windows and if you get a corner room you will get views on two sides. The staff go out of their way to please and the food is excellent! The Cherry Grove Pier is beautiful, fun, and busy with folks catching fish! I've never had hotel staff so willing to go above and beyond to please, and accommodate. They are very gracious. Also let me say that the beach is quieter during the week and not too crazy and busy as it is farther south in Myrtle Beach. Yet, it is still a fun place for kids and teens!

Fun in the Sun
Hotel Humor
Working in a resort, we often get asked questions that are truly headscratchers! We have reached the conclusion that some guests are so excited to get to the beach that they get confused.
Guest: When I leave the hotel, are there stairs that I can take?
Prince Resort: Yes, on either end of the hallway there are stairs that lead out.
Guest: And when I get back, do the stairs go up too?
