On September 15, The Sun News/MyrtleBeachOnline reported on a new development near one of the oldest golf courses in the United States.

Excerpts from the news outlet’s reporting

Despite ardent opposition from some Myrtle Beach residents, the city’s Planning Commission voted to move forward with a new development set to be constructed near the Pine Lakes golf course, but officials are urging the developer to smooth things over with locals ahead of construction….

Franklin Daniels, an attorney who represents Lennar, said the company would work with the city’s zoning administrator and the Pine Lakes community to ensure traffic wouldn’t go through the neighborhood.

“We have to adhere to the terms of the (planned unit development) and we have no intention of having traffic go through as we talked about,” Daniels said.
