Another Myrtle Beach golf course closes: Members get shafted again
Both of Deer Track Golf Resort’s courses have closed, leaving members who have paid dues with no home course to play.
The resort has been plagued by lawsuits and disputes with developers, and in early September, the owners, a group headed by North Carolina developer McCray Smith, closed the North course, known as the Toski Links. Toski Links was considered the better of the resort’s two courses, and had undergone an extensive renovation last summer.
Shortly after, the South course closed abruptly Sept. 11, though an official told Myrtle Beach Online the closure may be temporary.
Deer Track joins about a dozen other Myrtle Beach area courses that have closed in the last two years. Most closures have come about because of soaring real estate prices and what most observers now believe to be an over-crowded golf market.
The Deer Track development has more than 400 homes. It has been part of the Myrtle Beach golf scene for nearly a quarter of a century.

course, their loss does not even begin to compare with the financial loss of the
tenants who formerly ran the course.
