At Diamondback Golf Club, our members come from a wide range of backgrounds – some who have lived in the Myrtle Beach area their entire life, and others who’ve just moved into the area. Though every member here is unique in their own way, they all share golf as a common passion.
You can count Cindy Powell among the unique. She’s active in the Diamonds Ladies Golf League at Diamondback Golf Club, and the path that led her here involved an indoor sport with a significantly bigger ball.
In the 1970s Cindy was a flourishing professional bowler, winning a handful of competitions including the 1975 Queens Championship in Indianapolis. She had a great time rolling the heavy ball, but in hindsight wishes she could have spent more time exploring the different cities she got to visit while on the bowlers’ tour.
Growing up in Ohio, she played some golf growing up but not a lot, so when she moved to North Myrtle Beach later in life she finally developed a passion for the game. “When we moved to North Myrtle Beach we lived next to a golf course,” Cindy remembers. “That’s when I started to play the game a lot.”
Cindy’s growing involvement in the game now finds her as a regular participant in the Diamonds Ladies Golf League, which has been around for a few years now. With 55 members, the ladies league is a tight-knit group. Cindy has been a member here for four years and credits general manager Patrick Wilkinson as a big reason behind it, saying that “everything Diamondback does for its members, from the dinners to the golf leagues, makes it one of the best deals at the Beach!”
