    How does a two time a year player from PA get local rates during the summer time?  I thought there was some kind of card that you could buy maybe.  Just wondering.

    Thanks in advance.

    Summer rates are not much different than the rates given to locals.  Rates are already cheap.  You could buy the GSGA card but its most likely not worth it for the price difference during the summer unless you really plan to play a lot.

    Using 48 hour rates also makes it pretty cheap, Tim. Look for coupons in Monster books while you're down there.

    You could purchase one of the many condos or homes on the market.  I've heard that with a property tax receipt one can receive locals benefits at some establishments.

    Sounds like a very expensive way to get local rates to me.

    I have great neighbors, john, except for one.  There's always one isn't there?  They'll be in foreclosure soon so it's only a temporary problem.  He77, I lived in Southwood for six years; I can tolerate most anything for a period of time.

    You must live or own property in Horry, Gerogetown or Brunswick County to get the "Local Rate".

    Others have elluded to one of the last minute booking discount cards that you can purchase that gives you discounts on last minute unused tee times. 

    Lastly, as Sherm mentioned, play with an area property owner who has one of those cards.   
    Come out and see me drive the #4 GolfDesk.com Street Stock every Saturday night at The Myrtle Beach Speedway now thru Labor Day with the exception of July 2nd.

    I'd love to have you and your family next door, John, and you won't have to cut my grass. My yard is mostly concrete, water and golf course. No lie.

    Lots of free golf balls lately with the package players in town.

    Brian, I am thinking there is a difference between "local rate" and the MB Golf Passport. I have played with locals where they got the rate by producing a driver's license. I have secured a passport by sending a copy of my tax bill and purchasing it. Without a driver's license, how would I, as property owner, receive the local rate?

    Just spoke to a contact in a pro shop...a drivers license is the only way to get the "local" rate, which is $5-15 cheaper than the passport rate. According to my source, only a local DL will get you that local rate...woning a place with a tax bill will not.

    Follow up question. A quick scan of the SCDOT website left me with unanswered questions. According to the site, I know as a new SC resident, I would need to surrender my current driver's license and provide proof of insurance to obtain a SC license. I feel certain I would need to produce more than that.

    Anyone know what the deal is?  I'm not going to be full time for awhile, but having a SC license makes some sense.

    Just proof of residency....tax bill in your name, maybe an affadavit that your primary residence is now in SC...try contacting a state representatives office in the area...they are usually up to date on those sorts of requirements.

    jsherm1, and any others who have done this,  I found more information and, according to the website, I need just one of any number of things like a utility bill, tax receipt, pay stub, etc. that shows my address on it.

    Is that all I need, a utility bill with my address on it?

    Question to others who have split time between two states, anything else I should consider before surrendering my WV license for a SC license, when the majority of my time will still be in WV?

    You need to consider your tax situation.  By applying for the SC license you are effectively saying the SC is your resident state.  You should be filing a resident tax return for SC and a non-resident tax return for WV.  Most people don't think about this issue but it could cause problems.

    Yank, the primary residence part is basically my question. NMB is not likely to be my primary residence for a few years, but I can produce certain items on the list that will have a NMB mailing address on them. So, I am seeking advice from anyone who has experience in a similar situation.

    Some golf courses are a little more flexible in their policy on local rates (i.e., producing a tax bill, utility bill with id to prove you are the owner),  other courses are very rigid in that you must produce a Horry, Georgetown or Brunswick Co drivers license. 

    If you own property your best bet is the "Passport" through the MBACGOA.  I don't know what other courses do, however, I give the best discount to that card.
