In a recent in-studio interview, European golfers Beate and Patrick Copery highlighted the reasons they have chosen Myrtle Beach for their annual golf vacation as a couple since 1997. Patrick actually began coming to Myrtle Beach with a group of golfers from the Jersey Islands in the United Kingdom in 1990. The Coperys currently live Horgen Switzerland (near Zurich) and say their Myrtle Beach golf trip is more than a part of their annual planning, it has become a part of their lives for which they look forward all year.
