Plane crash survivors receive delayed golf vacation
On Jan. 15, when the U.S. Airways flight headed for Charlotte, N.C., instead made an emergency landing in the Hudson River after hitting a flock of birds just three minutes after taking off, all of the flight’s 155 surviving passengers were likely just glad to be alive. But for the group of passengers on that flight headed for a golf vacation in Myrtle Beach, S.C., a delayed vacation awaited them.
Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday President Bill Golden learned that the survivors included a group of golfers to the Grand Strand area, and, partnering with Legends Resorts, the PGA Tour Superstore and members of the Myrtle Beach golf community, Golden invited the group back to Myrtle Beach whenever they were ready to fly.
The group, which includes Jeff Kolodjay, Rob Kolodjay, Jim Stefanik, Jorge Morgado, Rick Delisle and Dave Carlos, will enjoy a four-day vacation with complimentary rounds at four Legends Resort courses: True Blue Plantation, The Heritage Club, TPC of Myrtle Beach and Wild Wing Plantation. Legends Resort also threw in a three-bedroom condo, a $500 gift card per golfer to replace lost golf gear from the flight, and custom club-fittings. This time around, though, the group decided to travel by car.
