Myrtle Beach golfers looking for a "fun, bubbly and summertime" experience during their next round may enjoy the latest addition to the Grand Strand golf scene, a new caddy service at Azalea Sands Golf Club called the Kilted Caddy Club & Cafe.
Beginning this Saturday, June 7 — with a grand opening party at 11 a.m. — the service will feature female caddies dressed in a uniform which consists of a white collared polo golf shirt accented in pink plaid, a pink plaid kilt and knee-high white socks.
“We’re following along the lines of restaurant chains like Tilted Kilt, Twin Peaks and Hooters, that have done well, and we’re taking that concept to the golf course,” Kilted Caddy president Kevin Brady said.
The introductory rate for opening weekend is $99 for a twosome, cart and caddy that will provide merriment along with some caddy duties.
Starting Monday, the course will offer summer rates of less than $50 per golfer, plus either $150 or $130 per caddy, depending on whether the group is a twosome or foursome. Pricing is expected to fluctuate with the market and time of year.
In addition to its caddies, the Kilted Caddy Club & Café also means a variety of other changes to this North Myrtle Beach golf course, include 20 pink golf carts and a new course layout — the front 9 and back 9 have been flipped to encourage golfer to make a mid-round stop at the completely revamped clubhouse.
The clubhouse area now featured a renovated bar, lounge and dining room as well as a new patio and an outdoor area with a gas grill, fire pit, games like cornhole and horseshoes and a live music stage for a “Concerts on the Green Summer Series.”
“This will be the spot where the golfers from all over the area, no matter what course they’re playing, can come over here when they’re finished and enjoy some good food and drink,” Brady said.
The bar, restaurant and lounge areas will remain open until at least 10 p.m. nightly.
