General Hackler Championship – South Carolina, USA

Nick along with his fellow Cyclones played in the General Hackler Championships at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina on the 12th and 13th March.  The team finished 11th out of 15 teams of which included 12 of the USA’s top 100 teams.  Iowa State is ranked 65th in the country.

Nick tied for 41st shooting rounds of 69, 76 and 76.  The tournament was played at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club in Myrtle Beach. 


The Dunes Golf and Beach Club
The first nine holes at The Dunes Club were opened in October 1949 and today these holes form the back nine.  These holes were constructed first because of the difficult terrain. The second nine holes opened for play in December 1950.

In 1992, Robert Trent Jones oversaw an extensive renovation of the golf course. The course greens were replaced with Penn Links bentgrass greens for smoother playability. The contours of six holes were modified to make the course more player friendly.   




This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
