Myrtle Beach Golf Trip 2007

For the fourth consecutive year, Juniata College alumni, family and friends gathered in Myrtle Beach, SC for a memorable golf trip and good times.  This year a total of 17 golfers made the trek to the “golf capital of the world” which was organized for the fourth straight time by Corey Pote ’83.  Alumni, family and friends from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Germany (yes, Germany…more about this below) gathered from March 11-15 and took on some of the best courses that Myrtle Beach has to offer.  Needless to say, there were some birdies, some pars and plenty of bogeys, etc. for each player during the week.

Long Bay Resort (the hot tubs, pools, lazy river, fitness center, breakfast, and ocean view rooms) was once again "home" to the outing, while golf stops were made at Waterway Hills, Sea Trail – Maples, Diamond Back and Legends – Heathland.  Every day reached 70 degrees – so, for most, shorts and short-sleeve shirts were the standard dress for the week.

Reinhard Prison ’85 was an exchange student at Juniata in 1985 and receives the award for the alum that has traveled the farthest to join the group in Myrtle Beach in the history of the event.  Reinhard, who has been playing golf for three years now, is obviously addicted to the game, was a pleasure to be around and kept everyone entertained with his charming personality.  In addition, Juniata women’s volleyball coach and director of athletics Larry Bock made the journey and made the group feel as though it had a celebrity among the gathering.

The immediate plans are for this event to take place at the same resort and during the same week of March in 2008. Please stay tuned to the web site for more details that will come in the not-so-distant future and plan on joining us (men and women) next spring.

Special thanks to Corey Pote for helping plan and organize this alumni travel event to Myrtle Beach. His efforts in selecting the accommodations and the golf courses the group played made the outing a very successful and enjoyable one for the fourth straight year!!!
