Hurricane Florence Relief
Prince Resort recovered quickly after Hurricane Florence. The impact on our coastal areas was minimal. Just days after the storm, the resort returned to full operation and welcomed vacationers to North Myrtle Beach's beautiful beaches.
WMBF News, a local affiliate of NBC News, states, "Most of Florence's destruction in Horry county came from the flooding of the Waccamaw and Little Pee Dee rivers. The Waccamaw reached record heights and the Little Pee Dee inundated homes along the county's western and southern borders."
Prince Resort is working to provide relief to people who have been affected by Hurricane Florence. Join these efforts and make a donation to help those impacted in the Carolinas, including Prince's employees.
"Horry County officials say that the catastrophic storm
caused more than $40 million in damage to homes and business in the area," according to a WMBF news article.
The resort is collecting deodorant, soap, shampoo, feminine products, razors and lotion to donate to The American Red Cross and local shelters.
On Thursday October 10, 2018 Stephanie Chestnut, general Manager, David Sides, director of engineering and Suzanne Fair, executive assistant boxed supplies at the North Myrtle Beach Rotary Club to distribute to those impacted by the storm.
Donors may drop off items at Prince Resort. Donations can be submitted in the donation box at the front desk or given directly to front desk personnel.
Employee Spotlight: Kathryn Covington
Prince Resort has a new addition to its great team! Kathryn Covington joined the Prince team this fall as a group sales manager.
Covington said, "I love the team of ladies I work with. It's a pleasure to see them first thing every morning. They have all been so welcoming and helpful."
Covington recalls working after Hurricane Florence, "Immediately following the hurricane, I received a call from a planner for Duke Energy. They needed lots of beds for emergency crews who were working to get power restored to our neighboring communities in North and South Carolina. I was incredibly impressed with how so many of our people from various departments and multiple resorts worked as a team to accommodate these workers. It was great to be a part of that."
Covington moved to North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina from Fayetteville, North Carolina. She planned to retire at the coast, but said, "I'll probably never retire, so why wait to be happy?"
Covington's previous work experience includes event sales, retail management and membership retention.
During her free time Covington enjoys playing the piano, reading, painting and spending time with her family, friends and dog.
Join Prince Resort in welcoming Covington to their family!

From The Golf Desk
Fall is in the air! What a great time to book a golf package for you and your friends. Good tee times are still available and the courses are in great shape!
Hurricanes Florence and Michael blew their way through the Grand Strand in September leaving minor damage in their wake. The majority of the courses received little to no damage at all, while others suffered just some superficial wounds. Everything is now up and running in Myrtle Beach and the fall weather is perfect for golfing.
Whether you are still thinking of coming this fall or contemplating a spring package, the quicker you book the better your price will be. Rooms are going quickly as are the premium tee times. With several amazing packages to choose from, many with added perks, we can tailor a package to fit any budget. Pick a date and give us a call. Our knowledgeable golf department will make every effort to get you the best package at the best price.
Have a wonderful holiday season and stay out of the bunkers!
From all of us in the Golf Department,
Kathy Phillips, Don Herlocker, and Dave Walker
Guest Comments "You really do have the best staff! I stayed twice this fall and will definitely keep coming back! Beautiful and quick easy access to the beach and Cherry Grove Pier. The sunrises and sunsets are the best!"

"Knowing that my needs would be taken care of, on site, and I wouldn't have to call a realty company and wait for them to contact a maintenance man that works for them. Being right at the pier was awesome and our room was exceptional. I especially loved having daily service for towels and removing trash and not having to clean at the end of our stay (with no cleaning charge added!)"
