Hello! My name is Scott Thrailkill. I wanted to take this time to introduce myself to you. I am the new golf director with Myrtle Beach SeaSide Resorts. I was raised in a small town in Southern Illinois. At the age of 5, I began my start in golf which also began my love for the game. I played golf in high school, college, and I still love the game as much as I did then.
Over the past ten years, I have worked on both the golf course and golf package sides of the business. Although the golf course was great, there is something to be said about providing golfers with an experience of a lifetime. As a package provider, my focus is on providing you with the best package that I possibly can.
As I get older, the game is becoming more fun every day. Now more so than ever since I get to take my 2 year old little girl out to the course late in the afternoons to enjoy the game that both her mother and I love so much. This kind of passion is what I will bring to each and every one of your golf vacations.
Scott TrailKill, Director of Golf
Myrtle Beach Seaside Resorts,

Our housekeeper Marguerite left us copious amounts of washcloths and towels and cleaned everyday. Excellent job! Sure the parking is a little tight but it is NOT a big deal. I've been in plenty of other garages just like it. We will be back!" - StatelyLamb (Simpsonville, SC) via TripAdvisor
