Residents of the Myrtle Beach Golf and Yacht Club community received a letter from their Board of Directors saying the management of the course has decided to close and they will be closed by December.
Many people that live in the community said they feel blind-sided because of the course's recent success.
"They have been making progress over the last 7 or 8 years, and improving the quality of the course. It's looking very good now. We had a lot of hope that every year it was going to improve more, and now we're devastated," John Pettazoni explained.
Pettazoni is a member of the golf club. His home, is off the green. He says the golf course is the reason he decided to buy there.
We've left several messages for the Heron Point Golf Club trying to find out why they would be closing the course. Right now, residents say it's been a rumor mill.
"There's so many rumors flying, we want to talk to the powers that can give us the facts to tell us what's going on," Lynn Stephens said.
The unknown reasoning behind the closing is sparking a growing concern within the community.
Once a perk, the golf course now has some residents worried for the future, worried for what might happen.
