Halls of Fame
Myrtle Beach is home to four different Halls of Fame, celebrating everyone from the founders of the area’s golf industry to distinguished shag dancers. A trip to any one of these Halls is sure to give visitors a greater understanding of the people who helped make this area what it is today, as well as the history of this town.
Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame
All of the big names in Myrtle Beach golf history are represented in this collection of stone plaques at Pine Lakes Country Club. Notable honorees include General James Hackler, Jr, inventor of the golf and hotel “package,” Carolyn Cudone, a ten-time USGA champion and founder of the Myrtle Beach Junior Golf Association, and W. Cecil Brandon Jr., the man who is revered as the architect behind Myrtle Beach’s success as a golfing destination.
South Carolina Hall of Fame
As one of this nation’s original colonies, South Carolina is rich with history. Located at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, this Hall of Fame honors a long list of luminaries that made this state what it is today, including astronauts, novelists, historians, Civil Rights pioneers, world-famous musicians, politicians, decorated war generals, signers of The Declaration of Independence, world-renowned artists, a World Series MVP, judges, industrialists, and other important residents from the Pal
South Carolina Biker Hall of Fame
Myrtle Beach is home to a few huge motorcycle rallies every year, so it makes sense that it’s also the place where the state’s most important riders are honored. Every community has its heroes, and the ones who have made a lasting impact on the two-wheeled vehicles are memorialized inside the area’s most famous biker bar, Suck Bang Blow in Murrells Inlet.
Shag Hall of Fame
Beach music and the dance that goes with it have been a part of Grand Strand culture for decades. In fact, North Myrtle Beach is the birthplace of both. And because not all Shaggers are created equally, a Hall of Fame exists to recognize those that have made important contributions to the community.
Hall of Heroes
This Sands Resorts space is dedicated to paying tribute to all of our service members, past and present. The Hall of Heroes features a scaled replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, a Gold Dog Tag display that honors all of those who died during combat from the end of the Vietnam War to September 11, 2001, and also those who have given their lives during the War on Terror.
