Golf Magazine Ranks Two Myrtle Beach Properties Among “Top 100 Resorts In North America”

Myrtle Beach is the ultimate buddies trip destination and properties like Barefoot and Caledonia/True Blue are a primary reason why.”

— Bill Golden, CEO Golf Tourism Solutions

MYRTLE BEACH, SC, US, October 3, 2019 / — Golf Magazine unveiled its ranking of the “Top 100 Resorts In North America,” and two of Myrtle Beach’s most popular properties – Barefoot Resort and Caledonia/True Blue – earned a spot on the prestigious list.

Golf Magazine considered resorts throughout North America before narrowing its list to 243 of the nation’s leading stay-and-play facilities. The magazine then placed each resort that made the cut into one of four categories – Luxury, Buddies, General Excellence, Families – and asked 3,700 readers to rate each property on five variables.

Readers evaluated resorts based on golf experience, accommodations, service, food and ambiance. The poll results were weighted against the opinion of a select group of Top 100 panelists, producing the magazine’s first Top 100 Resorts ranking.

Barefoot and Caledonia/True Blue were both ranked among North America’s top 25 resorts for buddies trips.

“Myrtle Beach is the ultimate buddies trip destination and properties like Barefoot and Caledonia/True Blue are a primary reason why,” said Bill Golden, CEO of Golf Tourism Solutions. “Both facilities provide golfers access to courses that are among the best in America and an assortment of amenities that help create an unforgettable golf vacation.”

Barefoot Resort is home to four highly acclaimed layouts designed by Tom Fazio, Davis Love III, Greg Norman and Pete Dye, two spectacular clubhouses, and a variety of accommodations offerings.

“Nineteenth-hole debates about the pecking order often ended with a rousing, life-is-good toast of ‘who cares!,’” said of Barefoot. “Each course has a style all its own … Barefoot Resort was built with large golf groups in mind. There are two-, three- or four-bedroom villas on the golf courses or at the Yacht Club.”

In addition to being ranked among the “Top 100 Resorts in North America,” the Love Course is a long-time member of Golf Magazine’s list of the “Top 100 You Can Play,” a ranking of America’s top 100 public courses.

Caledonia and True Blue, both Mike Strantz designs, are two of the best and most dynamic layouts in America. The sister courses share an architect and critical acclaim but offer two completely different experiences.

Caledonia is carved through a stunning piece of lowcountry property while True Blue is a bold design, challenging golfers with sprawling waste areas and some of South Carolina’s largest greens. Both courses are ranked among Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play.”

“Turn west off Highway 17, down a narrow lane shaded by an arcade of trees, and you come to a pair of courses that many regard as the region’s finest one-two punch,” said in a profile of the property. “Both are the work of Mike Strantz, an artist-cum-architect whose palette here was a rumpled swatch of terrain along the intercostal that once was home to indigo and rice plantations.”

MONTROSE, CA, UNITED STATES, October 2, 2019 / — An Egyptian panel from a Book of the Dead dating to the late Ptolemaic Period (circa 664-30 BC) and a 280 million-year-old amphibian fossil with complete skeleton and soft tissue preservation are just two outstanding items in an Exceptional Fall Antiquities Sale planned for Saturday, October 19th, by Ancient Resource Auctions, starting at 9 am Pacific time.

The online-only auction is packed with over 400 lots of fine, museum-quality ancient and ethnographic antiquities, to include authentic and well-provenanced ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Near Eastern, Islamic, Byzantine, and Pre-Columbian antiquities and ethnographic items, including a wonderful selection of natural history and fossil items.

“We’re featuring an incredible selection of antiquities from a wide array of cultures,” said Gabriel Vandervort of Ancient Resource Auctions. “In addition, we’re also offering many fabulous fossils. Collectors will scoop up wonderful pieces at really great prices.”

All lots may be viewed and bid on now, via Ancient Resource Auctions’ bidding platform, at, and on its bidding apps for both Android and Apple devices. Bidding is available on and The link to LiveAuctioneers is here, at

The ancient Egyptian panel from a Book of the Dead, 36 inches wide by 12 inches tall and nicely housed in a rectangular frame, is a lovely example of an important part of the Egyptian funerary kit. The panel features a central vignette depicting the deceased standing before Osiris, holding a jar with offerings, with additional offerings atop a table between them (est. $30,000-$45,000).

The amphibian fossil is that of Archegosaurus, which once inhabited the Permian swamps of what is now western Germany. These amphibians even pre-date the dinosaurs. Fine grade fossils of Archegosaurus are in great demand by advanced collectors and museums. Complete examples like this one, with an overall length of 41 ¼ inches, are exceedingly rare (est. $35,000-$45,000).

A rare, museum-class, giant Callopterus fish fossil from the Toarcian Period (circa 183-175.6 million years ago), also unearthed in Germany, is impeccably preserved, with stunning fins and a perfectly spread and intact caudal (tail) fin. The limestone slab, 37 ½ inches long, is heavy and a half-inch thick. The Callopterus fish were a large, Jurassic predatory fish (est. $18,000-$25,000).

A remarkable Roman marble head of a panther, from the 1st or 2nd century AD, 7 ½ inches tall, with extremely well-modeled facial details including deep-set eyes, elaborate ears and an open mouth with teeth, should bring $16,000-$20,000. The sculpture, carved from a beautifully veiny marble, would have been part of a larger marble furniture fragment, most likely a table leg.

A very well detailed Greek terracotta relief scene from the 5th century BC, depicting two women seated on ornate chairs and facing each other, appearing to be in conversation as they spin a fiber into yarn, is estimated to hit $8,000-$12,000. This type of mold-made, partially in the round terracotta relief would likely have been affixed to a large funerary vessel for a wealthy person.

An important Taino mushroom-capped anthropic sculpture from around 1000-1500 AD, possibly depicting Deminan Caracaracol, one of the four creation brothers of Taino mythology, should change hands for $6,000-$10,000. Complex symbolic glyphs decorate the cap, head and lower back of the 15 ½ inch tall sculpture, which is made of magnetite and has a strong magnetic field.

An Egyptian polychrome Ptah-Sokar-Osiris from the Late Period (circa 1075-974 BC), depicted mummiform on a rectangular integral base and wearing a tripartite headdress surmounted by a crown of ostrich feathers and a solar disc above cow’s horns, 25 ¼ inches tall, has an estimate of $6,000-$9,000. The figure is in excellent condition, with much of the original paint preserved.

A fantastic Egyptian deep blue glazed ushabti (small item taking the form of a mummified human figure, in glazed earthenware), from the 3rd Intermediate Period Dynasty 21 (circa 1075-974 BC), 5 ¾ inches tall, is expected to reach $6,000-$8,000. The figure, wearing a striated wig and with arms folded at chest, is a gorgeous example, with black details and a vivid blue glaze.

A nice Near Eastern bronze horse bit with elaborate cheekpieces, each in the form of griffins, one of the most popular hybrid creatures depicted in the art of Western Asia, should command $3,500-$4,500. The body is long, with a central hole for the bit, with loops at the rump and shoulders fore attachment of the check straps. The overall total bit is about 6 ¾ inches in length.

In addition to live and internet bidding, phone and absentee bids will be accepted. When bidding this way, a 19.5 percent buyer’s premium will apply, versus a 24.5 percent when bidding online via or, and 20 percent via the Ancient Resource Auctions bidding platform and app. Previews are by appointment only; to schedule one call 818-425-9633.

Myrtlewood Golf Club’s Palmetto Course Reopens After Extensive Greens And Bunker Renovation Project

Dan Schlegel and his team installed new Sunday Ultradwarf Bermuda grass greens and restored the putting surfaces to their original dimensions

Golfers will love the new look, and this project reflects Founders Group International’s long term commitment to delivering the best golf vacation experience possible.”

— Justin Binke, FGI

MYRTLE BEACH, SC, US, October 2, 2019 / — The Palmetto Course at Myrtlewood Golf Club, long one of Myrtle Beach’s most popular layouts, reopened Friday, Sept. 20, following an extensive greens and bunker renovation project spearheaded by Schlegel Golf Design.

Dan Schlegel and his team installed new Sunday Ultradwarf Bermuda grass greens and restored the putting surfaces to their original dimensions, an effort that expanded the course’s greens by 28 percent. The larger greens elevated the number of pinnable locations and made the Edmund Alt design much more dynamic.

Every bunker on the course was renovated, restoring shape and character that had been lost over the years. The bunkers, while not necessarily larger in size, are much more visible along the fairway, challenging players taking aggressive lines, particularly on par 5s.

“I’m really excited about the way the course looks,” Schlegel said. “We were able to revise the fairway bunkers and the impact they will have on play, so golfers will have to think about how they want to play shots. We were able to restore the greens to their original shape, and everything will be in perfect condition. The Palmetto will be like a new course.”

“The Palmetto Course at Myrtlewood looks great,” said Justin Binke, Founders Group International’s director of sales and marketing. “Golfers will love the new look, and this project reflects Founders Group International’s long term commitment to delivering the best golf vacation experience possible. We are delighted to welcome players back to the Palmetto Course for the always popular fall season here in Myrtle Beach.”

Players familiar with the course will notice the enhancements throughout a round, most notably on the 18th hole, which plays along the Intracoastal Waterway. Schlegel shifted the fairway bunkers and the sightlines from the tee, allowing players to see more of the hole and the waterway, which will enhance the visuals on the Palmetto’s most dramatic challenge.

The decision to hire Schlegel Golf Design was a natural one for FGI. Dan Schlegel previously worked for Ault, Clark & Associates (formerly Edmund Alt, LTD), the company that designed the course, and he was part of a team that completed a pair of projects at the Palmetto Course in the 1990s.

Myrtlewood Golf Club is a 36-hole facility owned by Founders Group International, the Myrtle Beach area’s largest golf course ownership group. The Palmetto’s sister course, PineHills, underwent a similar project in 2018 that has been met by rave reviews.

The renovation of the Palmetto Course is a continuation of FGI’s commitment to the Myrtle Beach golf industry. In the last two years, six of FGI’s 22 courses have been the beneficiary of significant capital improvement projects.

In 2018, Tradition Club and Myrtlewood’s PineHills Course underwent renovation projects that included new greens, and FGI installed the Better Billy Bunker system at TPC Myrtle Beach. In addition to the work at the Palmetto Course, the company also remodeled the clubhouses at Aberdeen Country Club and River Hills Golf Club in 2019.

Little Innocents Collection of Bookmarks

Roxanne Coutts Eilers, granddaughter of world renowned Scottish artist, Gordon Coutts is launching her own line of inspirational greeting cards.

My dream of creating unique, warm, whimsical and delightful greeting cards and sharing happiness and joy to people around the world has finally came full circle and my dream has become a reality.”

— Roxanne Coutts Eilers

PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 1, 2019 / — Roxanne Coutts Eilers, granddaughter of world renowned Scottish artist, Gordon Coutts is launching her own line of inspirational greeting cards.
Roxanne Coutts Eilers is a native of Palm Springs, California. She comes from a rich heritage of artists, musicians, and writers. Her grandfather Gordon Coutts, was an international painter known for his portraits and landscapes in Australia, California, Morocco and Mexico.  Her grandmother, Gertrude Russell Coutts, was also an accomplished artist, musician and opera soloist.  Gordon and Gertrude, along with their daughter, Jeane Granada Coutts, settled and built a Moorish style home in Palm Springs, California which is now the famous Korakia Pensione. The New York times refers to the hotel as “One of the sexiest hotels in America”. 
Roxanne's mother, Jeane Granada Coutts, was a professional artist in her own right, and protégé of Gordon Coutts. Jeane Coutts ensured that the love of the arts was passed onto her children as well.  Roxanne embraced and absorbed as much artistic and creative knowledge as she could from her mother over the years.  Roxanne also inherited her mother's love of painting portraits and people, and finds this subject matter most challenging and fulfilling.  Roxanne was personally trained by her mother and continues to develop her own personal and individual style with each painting.  Roxanne is honored to carry on her family's legacy of art and music.
As a fine artist, Roxanne enjoys painting traditional subject matter in a combination of impressionistic, painterly, and realistic styles using an oil medium. She seeks to express both beauty and faith on canvas, and at the same time gives the viewer a sense of pleasure and joy through her artwork.

Roxanne always dreamed of designing a special kind of card to share with the world.  When she was just 11 years old she designed some small greeting cards each hand colored. Later she created little characters on stationery. When she was in her twenties the Little Innocents characters came into existence.  

Each picture she drew and colored of the Little Innocents characters told a little bit about her own personal life story. she would draw a cute little girl with hair blowing in the wind in a field of grasses and wild flowers. In her imagination that little girl was her, feeling carefree and loving nature, dancing with the butterflies. 

That same passion will be captured in her new line of whimsical, inspirational greeting cards. The collection is titled “Little Innocents Collection.” The collection will include the following cards Christmas, Friendship, Birthday, Angelic Hymns, Sweet Scriptures and Bookmarks. The inspirational greeting cards are being launched October,1st and will be available in specialty stores and on line at

Roxanne States “My dream of creating unique, warm, whimsical and delightful greeting cards and sharing happiness and joy to people around the world has finally came full circle and my dream has become a reality.”
In addition to her oil painting and her whimsical, inspirational greeting card collection, Roxanne is also an inspiring author and motivational speaker. She has published a series of self-help books for those needing hope through a difficult season of life. She is currently working on her third book  and often speaks at various workshops and conferences.
Roxanne Coutts dreams of having an art exposition in Palm Springs, California the city and home where she was raised. Her Grandfather was a visionary and had a dream to re-live his art-filled Moroccan days. The flamboyant Coutts did not stop with the recapturing of his physical existence in Tangier with Dar Marroc, now the Korakia Pensione, but his social existence as well. Coutts hung his paintings in the library, where he regaled his guests with tales of adventure. Dar Marroc quickly became a gathering place for musicians, visiting artists such as John Lavery, Agnes Pelton, Nicolai Fenshin and Grant Wood and celebrities such as Rudolph Valentino and Errol Flynn. It is rumored that even Winston Churchill has painted in the Artist’s villa Studio.
