New Look for Indoor Pool
Seaside has completed its indoor pool paver project. Seaside's goal for this project was to provide a uniform surface for the pools from the inside out. The pools are now more safe and slip resistant.
In addition to that, Seaside wanted to make the pools more visually appealing.
The completion of this project was a collaborative effort. Active Shotcrete did the work for the flooring and patching of the pools, Carolina Powder Coating did the gates, and Seaside's maintenance team did the ceiling and pipe painting.
The previous floor was painted. The paint made the floor very slippery when wet. The pool had to be repainted multiple times a year for maintenance. The new surface will provide years of low maintenance and is slip resistant.
"It is very beautiful to look at and is providing a very modern look to the pool area. It gives that area a "new" feeling," said Jimmy Tester, Seaside Assistant General Manager.
The project started on September 24, 2018 and concluded on October 11, 2018.
"The pools are our main amenity source, therefore they should provide comfort and enjoyment, along with a high level of safety in there as well," said Tester.
Seaside invites guests to visit and enjoy the fresh uniform look of the indoor and outdoor pools and take a dip in the beautiful bright blue bodies of water.

Employee Spotlight: Angela Roberts
Seaside has a new addition to its great team! Angela Roberts joined the Seaside team this fall as an evening arrivals specialist.

Seaside recovered quickly after Hurricane Florence. The impact on our coastal areas was minimal. Just days after the storm, the resort returned to full operation and welcomed vacationers to North Myrtle Beach's beautiful beaches.
WMBF News, a local affiliate of NBC News, states, "Most of Florence's destruction in Horry came from the flooding of the Waccamaw and Little Pee Dee rivers. The Waccamaw reached record heights and the Little Pee Dee inundated homes along the county's western and southern borders."
Seaside is working to provide relief to people who have been affected by Hurricane Florence. Join these efforts and make a donation to help those impacted in the Carolinas, including Seaside's employees.
"Horry County officials say that the catastrophic storm caused more than $40 million in damage to homes and businesses in the area," according to a WMBF news article.
Seaside is collecting deodorant, soap, shampoo, feminine products, razors and lotion to donate to The American Red Cross and local shelters.
Donors may drop off items at Seaside. Donations can be submitted in the donation box at the front desk or given directly to front desk personnel.

From The Golf Desk
Fall is in the air! What a great time to book a golf package for you and your friends. Good tee times are still available and the courses are in great shape!
Hurricanes Florence and Michael blew their way through the Grand Strand in September leaving minor damage in their wake. The majority of the courses received little to no damage at all, while others suffered just some superficial wounds. Everything is now up and running in Myrtle Beach and the fall weather is perfect for golfing.
Whether you are still thinking of coming this fall or contemplating a spring package, the quicker you book the better your price will be. Rooms are going quickly as are the premium tee times. With several amazing packages to choose from, many with added perks, we can tailor a package to fit any budget. Pick a date and give us a call. Our knowledgeable golf department will make every effort to get you the best package at the best price.
Have a wonderful holiday season and stay out of the bunkers!
From all of us in the Golf Department,
Kathy Phillips, Don Herlocker, and Dave Waller
