I don't frequent this newsgroup much now that it has snowed here in
Minneapolis and I have shifted my focus to cross-country skiing (and
I've been told that swimming isn't useful as cross-training for
XCountry). However, my wife and I were in Myrtle Beach in August
and I swam a few times at the Pepper Geddings Recreation Center.
I'm not sure of the pool length, but there is a bulkhead thingy that
splits the pool to make a 25-yard (I think) lap swimming area. The
address is 3205 Oak Street. Phone: 803-448-8578. It cost 2-3
dollars and opened at 6AM (at least during the summer months)
for lap swimming. It was nice and quiet at 6AM: I had a lane to
The only other pool that I know of in Myrtle Beach was at the resort
we were staying at, Kingston Plantation. As you can guess by my
use of Pepper Geddings, I didn't think much of that pool. It was
WAY too warm, and had no lane markings.
Have fun in Myrtle Beach. I hope you like golf...mini or otherwise.
