News from SeaSide
Fourth of July at Seaside

Fourth of July is always one of our favorite days all year! We got in the patriotic spirit by decorating our beautiful resort in Red, White, and Blue.
 
We could not have asked for better weather for July 4th. The sun was shining and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was a very hot day with the heat-index in the upper 90s. Guests enjoyed the brisk sea breeze and lounging by the pool to keep cool.

The day's festivities started with the 7th annual Salute From The Shore which was South Carolina's annual 4th of July flyover that featured 2 F-16 fighter jets and several other antique aircraft.

The celebrations continued after dark with many fireworks displays in many locations along the Grand Strand. Some guests even enjoyed fireworks from their very own private balconies.


Leadership Training Seminar

SeaSide is always working to bring the best possible training to our resort teams. During the month of June, Freyaz Shroff, with Kurniv Success Solutions, conducted several training sessions with our managers and supervisors.

We were challenged with the task of writing someone's success story, conducting more productive meetings, being more effective managers, and training our staff to offer the very best of ourselves. Our goal is for customer service to become everyone's speciality.

One of the highlights of our training was "Switch Day", where someone from one department traded places with someone from a different department. Ashely Simpson, one of our front desk supervisors, worked with Reservations for the day, while Toni Taylor, our housekeeping supervisor, worked with the front desk.

At the end of the training all attendees were presented certificates of completion.

"There was a big smile on everyone's faces as the workshop ended." said Marvis Livingston, manager at Seaside, "We all hope to have Freyaz Shroff back here sharing her wisdom with us sometime very soon. Thank You Freyaz and Kurniv!"

From The Golf Desk
The fall golf booking season is in full swing now. With many courses giving deeper discounts for booking early, tee times are filling up.

When you are booking your trip this fall, keep in mind that daylight savings goes until November 6th, 2016. This is very important since many golf courses are once again offering huge savings for those tee-times after 12pm or 1pm. During the fall you can finish 18 holes if you tee off after 1pm up until late October.

Be sure to keep an eye out for some great new packages; such as the Founder's Group Play 3 and Get the 4th Free. The Founder's Group has 22 courses and you can choose your free round from 18 of those 22 courses. The only restriction is that the free round has to be played after 1pm. If you are arriving in the afternoon and cannot wait to tee off, this will be the perfect package for you. Who wouldn't like to drive in and play Long Bay for free?

COURSE INFORMATION:

World Tour: This 18-hole gem is a fun course to play. With 18 holes inspired by some of the greatest holes in the world, you will not be disappointed. After playing there on Monday, June 20th, I can say that the course is in great shape. The greens were about 2 weeks post aerification so they were a bit soft and slower than usual, but now they are back to 100% and rolling great. World Tour is part of the Founder's Group so it is available with the Captain's Choice Package, Prime Time Rewards Package ($100 gift card per golfer) , and Play 3, Get the 4th Free.

Thistle Golf Club: Thistle is 27 holes of pure enjoyment. This golf course gives you the link style golf many of you enjoy. When you pull in to the multi-million dollar clubhouse you will be wowed and you will continue to be wowed during the duration of your outing. I could go on and on about this course, but I won't. You will see why this course is so awesome once you play it. You can book Thistle Golf Club in several ways. You can book it in the Captain's Choice Package, The Elite Package with Prestwick/Arrowhead/Tidewater, and the 2 round package with Tidewater known as the TNT Package.

Guest Comments
"I loved my weekend stay there. Wonderful room and wonderful housekeeping." Cara Raines Kaiser via Facebook
 
"Seaside is truly a jewel. Amenities were great and our stay was wonderful. I did notice that your website doesn't do you justice. The furniture in our condo was updated and the bed linens were decorated in a more modern up to date fashion. Absolutely gorgeous. Your website needs to be updated to reflect how uniquely beautiful your condos really are. Although one elevator was down during our stay it did not put a damper on my family's vacation. Very clean and pristine resort and staff was very helpful. We will be returning!!!" Keith Munn, via TripAdvisor

Fun in the Sun
Beach Travel Tips
Packing for the beach can be a daunting task. These tips below make it a little easier.
  • Store Your Electronics in Plastic Bags:Are you tired of worrying about your cell phone getting wet every time you go to the beach, hate to take it, but also hate to be without it? Turn to a trusty zip-loc plastic baggie and never worry about it getting soaked or sandy again.

  • Stop Being Sandy with some baby powder: Baby powder doesn't just smell nice, but it can also take all that sand off your body. Everyone hates the feeling of not being able to get totally sand free on the hands, arms, legs, and feet instead of trying to rub it off or wash it off, simply shake some baby powder onto it. In no time flat, you'll have silky, sand free skin with a soft, relaxing aroma.

  • Get To The Beach Early in The Day: If it is going to be a beautiful day, there is nothing wrong with with heading to the shore earlier rather than later. It's not usually crowded, and although the water may seem a bit cooler than it will be at 2:30 p.m., it will still feel refreshing and wonderful. The sun doesn't shine as intensely in the morning, either.

Summer RecipeChocolate Lasagna
  • 1 package of chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cold milk
  • 12 oz tub frozen whipped topping
  • 3.9 oz package chocolate instant pudding
  • 3 1/4 cups cold milk
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • Begin by crushing 36 sandwich cookies. A food processor can be used or crush them in a zip-lock bag using a rolling pin. When the cookies have turned into fine crumbs, you are done.
 
  • Transfer the cookie crumbs to a large bowl.
 
  • Stir in 6 tablespoons melted butter and use a fork to incorporate the butter into the cookie crumbs. When the butter is distributed, transfer the mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish.
 
  • Press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you work on the additional layers.
 
  • Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in 2 tablespoons of milk, and sugar and mix well.
 
  • Stir in 1 and 1/4 cups of whipped topping. Spread this mixture over the crust.
 
  • In a bowl combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 and 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until the pudding starts to thicken. Use a spatula to spread the mixture over the previous cream cheese layer.
 
  • Allow the dessert to rest for a bout 5 minutes so that the pudding can firm up further.
 
  • Spread the remaining whipped topping over the top. Sprinkle Mini chocolate chips evenly over the top.
 
  • Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or in the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
