Founding Father of the Myrtle Beach Golf Community 2014
A tireless work ethic has made Critt Gore a cornerstone of the Myrtle Beach golf community. Gore, along with a group of investors, bought Possum Trot in 1980 and he has been an integral part of the community ever since. With Gore’s hard work setting the tone, Possum Trot built its reputation as the Grand Strand’s friendliest golf course, but he was just getting started.
Gore was part of a group that built Heather Glen in 1987 and Glen Dornoch in 1996, two layouts that significantly enhanced Myrtle Beach’s national profile. While the native Pennsylvanian was busy running three successful properties, he always had time to help the community as a whole. Gore was a member of the Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association board of directors from 1986-89 and served as president of the organization in 1988-89.
Gore was a leader by example. He had the foresight to develop golf courses and the tenacity to do any job that was required to make his properties a success, a combination that has made him a Myrtle Beach golf legend.
