On Grand Strand Golf: Course owners tap into Moglia’s secrets of success

The Myrtle Beach golf market is trying to tap into some of the successes of TD Ameritrade, Merrill Lynch and the Coastal Carolina football program, which reached the No. 1 national ranking this past season.

The Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association managed to get Coastal Carolina football coach and TD Ameritrade chairman Joe Moglia to speak Thursday at its annual customer service seminar, which is open to any golf industry employee.

About 150 seats were set up for the seminar at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club, and they were nearly all filled.

“I recognize what the owners and leadership for the Myrtle Beach golf association bring to the entire area and I was happy to do it for them,” said Moglia, who spoke gratis.
