    It should perform satisfactorily in Myrtle Beach. I played golf in Nova Scotia a few years ago and did not notice any difference than playing along the coast here in South Carolina (I live about an hour and a half from Myrtle Beach). I did play in Denver one year, and at that height, it did make a difference, after all it is a mile above sea level.

    Hi Theo,

    Sounds like you guys have the right idea and a trip to Myrtle is definitely in order to escape the bitter cold! In terms of the effect of altitude on golf ball performance, here is some great insight from our principal scientist on the golf ball R&D team:
