Among the long stretch of hotels that dot South Carolina’s coastline, The Inlet Sports Lodge may be the most unique.

A boutique hotel catering to golf lovers and fishing, boating and outdoor enthusiasts, the facility added another accolade Tuesday, Oct. 30, to its growing list of awards as Strovis and the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce presented the Murrells Inlet hotel’s staff with the Business of the Month Award for November 2018.

Warren Beckham, the lodge’s general manager, and staff members Catherine Rotman, Michael Eisenhardt and Kathy Arroyo were on hand for the presentation.

Strovis Chief Operating Officer Tracy Mau and Chamber President and CEO Beth Stedman presented The Inlet Sports Lodge staff with a framed certificate, and a special 7-foot-tall banner will also be displayed throughout November at the lodge, signifying the establishment as an award-winning Chamber member.

Located in the heart of Murrells Inlet at 4600 US 17 Business, The Inlet Sports Lodge caters to sports and outdoor enthusiasts – everything from golf to fishermen, or anyone simply looking to relax. The lodge is just one mile north of the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk and Marina, where guests can enjoy a variety of award-winning fresh Lowcountry dining and a variety of watersports. The lodge is also only minutes away from many of the area’s most recognized golf courses – including the lodge’s very own affiliated courses – Caledonia Golf and Fish Club and True Blue Plantation and all the courses of the Waccamaw Golf Trail, plus dozens of boutique shops, beaches and historical area attractions.

The Inlet Sports Lodge opened in October 2010 as a fractional ownership property and is also open to the public as a hotel. Through its Ownership Program, owners receive memberships to Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, True Blue Plantation, Huntington Beach State Park, Brookgreen Gardens & Freedom Boat Club. As a regular patron of the lodge, guests can enjoy exclusive rates for golf packages with premier courses, and close proximity to the area’s several marinas, docks, boat access points, hiking and bike trails.

When presented with the Business of the Month Award, Beckham said the lodge is grateful for the recognition and said he was pleased to be part of the greater Georgetown County community.

Mau, who when she’s not working at Strovis can be found fishing, hunting or just spending time in the great outdoors, told the lodge staff how impressed she was with the facility.

“As a sports enthusiast, I would like to say, ‘Thank you’. This place is immaculate. It’s very well kept. … We’ve been doing this for a little over a year now, and you’re one of the 12 honorees this year out of the whole county. So you’re one of the 12! … Congratulations!” (Watch as Mau speaks during presentation: Strovis’ Tracy Mau presents award.)

The lodge offers deluxe and luxury suites.

The suites include a kitchenette at The Inlet Sports Lodge.

The Business of the Month Award is only the latest in accolades for the lodge. Southern Living Magazine included the lodge in its Reader Deal in 2013. It received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence three years in a row and was named as an Interval Internation Premier Boutique Resort five years in a row. In 2011, it received the Gold Star of Excellence Award from the Myrtle Beach Hospitality Association.

The Inlet Sports Lodge offers deluxe studios and luxury suites for guests to choose from when staying in Murrells Inlet. The rooms feature a kitchenette with standard refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, two top burner stove, dishwasher and basic cookware and dining utensils.

The lodge has business and entertainment areas that can be rented for meetings, parties and even weddings. For more information about The Inlet Sports Lodge or to make reservations, call 877-585-9360.

The Business of the Month Award honors Chamber-member businesses for being leaders in the community, and Strovis is proud to serve as the official corporate sponsor.

Strovis CEO Jenna Jordan said she’s pleased to be that Strovis is the corporate sponsor for the award.

“Strovis is so pleased to be a part of this great program,” Jordan said. “Focusing on active Chamber businesses each month with this award gives us the opportunity to support local business leaders. Strovis was founded 20 years ago in Georgetown County, so we love being able to honor our neighbors right here at home.”

The Strovis Character Counts Awards program dove back into honoring Georgetown High School students Sunday evening with the first presentation of the new school year.

GHS junior Allen Poston was named the award winner for the swim team. Prior to a swim team banquet Sunday, Poston was presented a certificate and a $50 cash prize. He is the first of 18 student-athletes who will be named Strovis Character Counts Award honorees during the school year.

The Strovis Character Counts program honors student-athletes who excel in their chosen sport, as well as in life. Students who hold strong character traits are selected for the award. They are nominated by members of the coaching staff.

Poston was nominated by Coach Bonnie Richards.

“Allen embodies determination every day,” Richards said. “He has been on the team for five years and swims for the YMCA in the off-season. When he sets his eyes on something, he will not stop until he achieves his goal. Sometimes it is easy to become complacent in your sport, feeling that you practice enough or have achieved your goals, but Allen pushes through that and tries harder.

“This season has been difficult with hurricanes, canceled meets and practices, but, through it all, Allen has always been on deck.”

Strovis CEO Jenna Jordan presented Poston with the award.

“Our goal is to recognize student-athletes at Georgetown High School for showing good character as part of their athletic program,” Jordan said. “… We just think it’s important to recognize what great sportsmen you are but also that you’re good people. We know that having good character matters … to be successful in the future, and we want to encourage that as much as possible.”

Strovis partnered with the Georgetown High School Bulldogs Athletic Booster Club to create the awards program in the fall of 2017. The Booster Club remains a co-sponsor for the 2018-2019 school year.

Founded in Georgetown in 1998, Strovis Holdings oversees three divisions of the company: Strovis Payroll & HR, Strovis Benefits and Strovis Insurance. The company serves clients in 32 states from South Carolina offices in Georgetown, Murrells Inlet, Summerville and Mount Pleasant. The company can be found on the web at
