Quick Golf Trip On NK ACY-MYR-ACY

Fri Jun 23, 2006 10:53 pm

Me and a couple friends decided to head down to MYR for the day and play some golf... dumb idea for the end of June, but here it goes.

June 22, 2006
sched dept: 0805 act dept: 0759
sched arr: 0930 act arr: 0918
a/c 504NK (Spirit of Bahamas) A319
dept rwy 31 arr rwy 18
pax load: 124

arrived at the airport about 0700 and got the exit row on the 319 (row 11). boarding began about 0730 and went pretty quickly. everyone on board around 0752, but had to wait for fueler to finish due to last minute a/c swap. We still managed to p/b early at 0759. We departed rwy 31 out of ACY and flew along the coast past Cape May and continued over Norfolk down to MYR, where we landed on rwy 18. Got to the gate at 0918, so overall a quick flight of about 1:06 air time.

Before I get to the return details, let me tell you we must have been having serious brain cramps to think golfing in MYR in the end of June would be fun. We had a 12:00 noon tee-time, so after a nice breakfast at Cracker Barrel we headed down 17 to Waterway Hills golf course. It managed to get 94 degrees and humid as heck... next time we do this it'll be Oct or Nov. never again in the summer...  banghead 

sched dept: 2055 act dep: 2047
sched arr: 2215 act arr: 2208
a/c 504NK (again)
dep rwy: 18 arr rwy: 31
pax load: about 50

We got to the airport early and returned our vehicle because we were so sun burnt and just wanted to get there and eat. our aircraft arrived from ACY around 1947 with about 127 pax onboard. Being that it was a light flight back to ACY, everybody was onboard pretty quick and we pushed early. We taxied to rwy 18 and had no wait to t/o. We took off over the ocean and made a left to head up the coast. At this point I think I dozed off, but I woke when we started to descend, so probably around ORF. You could see lightning in the distance which I think looks cool from an airplane. We did a low pass over Atlantic City and made a left turn to land on runway 31. Got to gate 4 at 2208 local... overall, a decent trip, although I golfed like crap since it was so friggin' hot, but fun nonetheless...

Hope you enjoy.... sorry no pics, but I left the camera at home!!

Tell me - as a non-American, how far south is Myrtle Beach? And which airline did you fly with?

Myrtle Beach is in South Carolina just below the South Carolina/North Carolina border.... we flew on Spirit Airlines (NK) out of ACY.

Not much... you get a complimentary beverage and can purchase snacks... no IFE, but then again it's only roughly an hour flight

Ya got me there for a sec. I saw "golf trip" and I thought I saw MRY instead of MYR. Both great golf destinations, but MYR is certainly quicker to get to from Jersey.  Wink
