At Diamondback Golf Club, we take tremendous pride in the fact that one of the most compelling attractions of club membership comes from the uniqueness of our club members themselves. Quite simply, our members make the membership experience more enjoyable for everyone – and as such, we’re compelled to show them off.
In our first member showcase, we’re pleased to introduce you to Mickey Berry.
When we first asked Mickey for a sit-down discussion, he happily obliged. “Wanna let me do this from my golf cart?” he asked, giving us an initial glimpse into the lighthearted, unassuming perspective that Mickey brings when he visits Diamondback.
And those visits are frequent. He’s been a regular at Diamondback for about two and half years now, ever since Mickey and his wife moved down to our Woodland Valley community from Charlotte, North Carolina. When we asked him how he got started in golf, Mickey responded with a simple “wow,” chuckling as he realized how many years he now had to count back. Mickey told us he started playing this game at the tender age of 22 while still living in Virginia, and humbly concluded that in the 48 years since, “I don’t believe I’ve gotten a whole lot better.”
But skill level is one thing, and fulfillment and enjoyment of the game are quite another. “It’s good for exercise,” he reasoned. The biggest reason he keeps coming back? “The camaraderie I share with my regular group here at Diamondback,” Mickey told us. “That’s what I really enjoy about being a member here.”
While Mickey readily pointed out that Diamondback welcomes our visiting vacation golfers with open arms, he was especially appreciative of the hearty welcome we’ve always extended to our members. “We have members from Myrtle Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Little River, and all over,” Mickey pointed out, while offering an emphatic response when we asked what he would tell anyone who hasn’t yet taken advantage of membership at Diamondback:
“You’re missing out!”
Our thanks to Mickey, one of many great people and personalities we’re happy to have as part of our membership here at Diamondback. For more information on how you can join Mickey in our membership ranks, click here!
