The Coastal Companies, managed by developer Mark Saunders, is comprised of business operations located near the coastal border between historic Wilmington, North Carolina and exciting Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Decades ago Mark Saunders selected this location to begin a construction company that focused on designing and building high quality beach homes. With Myrtle Beach, South Carolina nearby, he knew it would become a popular area for vacationers and retirees.
Like Mark Saunders developer, those responsible for the initial development of the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand area saw its growth potential and began developing it as a resort, building its first beach hotel in 1901. The beach strand later became home to a golf course built by the first president of the PGA of America and now there are more than 100 courses to choose from.
Today, the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand area is a golfing destination that includes four highly ranked, championship golf courses known as the Big Cats. Developer Mark Saunders is the manager for these award-winning golf courses operations that feature challenging holes for all levels. Tiger’s Eye is a 4 ½ star course that has been recognized nationally as being among Golf Digest’s “Top 100 Public Golf Courses in America” and ranked as number 3 on Golf Digest’s list of “Top 50 Courses in Myrtle Beach.
Other courses managed by Mark Saunders developer include the highly acclaimed Leopard’s Chase, Lion’s Paw, and Panther’s Run. All of which are considered the crown jewels of the Ocean Ridge Plantation development.
“It is an honor that regular visitors to the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand area rave about the Big Cats course layouts, degrees of difficulty, varying elevations, and excellent customer service, rating them in the top 10 in the Myrtle Beach area.” Said Saunders.
