2022 Family Golf Week Parent of the Year
Now in her fifth term as Mayor of North Myrtle Beach, Marilyn Hatley embodies the spirit of family devotion and community service.
Mayor Hatley has served as Chairperson of the Horry County League of Cities, Chairperson of the Coastal Alliance, and on the Board of Directors of the Association of South Carolina Mayors and the Municipal Association of South Carolina. She is a Charter Member and Vice Chairperson of South Carolina Beach Advocates.
Mayor Hatley has been actively involved for many years in community service through her work with the North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club and numerous other charitable organizations. She is also a member of Risen Christ Lutheran Church. Married for 52 years to David Hatley, they have one son and a granddaughter, Amelia.
For her longtime support of our local community and lifelong devotion to her family as a loving spouse, parent and grandparent, Family Golf Week is proud to honor North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley as its 2022 Parent of the Year.
2022 Family Golf Week Father of the Year
As devoted husband to his wife Teresa and father to his daughter Courtney, Mike Binder has dedicated much of his life to helping the next generation both within his own family, and well beyond.
A longtime sales professional for AHEAD USA, Mike has for more than a decade helped rally the support of area PGA professionals to support Folds of Honor, which awards scholarships to the children of fallen or disabled military service members. What began among eight friends in 2010 as a 100-hole Labor Day golf marathon to raise awareness and funds for Folds of Honor gave rise four years later to the Myrtle Beach Patriots, who with Mike among an expanded group of participants (and his company as lead sponsor) have since generated more than $779,000 to support this noble cause.
Mike and Teresa have passed the same spirit of helping youth along to their daughter, Courtney, who will graduate in the fall of 2022 with her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at Appalachian State University. Courtney will be graduating with honors, and having been named to the Chancellor’s List for earning a grade point average exceeding 3.85 throughout her time there. She also has taken to passing along that same spirit and drive as a member, and then as a Director of Young Life during her college career. Working with the youth around the country has become a passion of hers as well.
For his year-round, selfless efforts on behalf of others, Family Golf Week is proud to honor Mike Binder as its 2022 Father of the Year.
About Family Golf Week
Family Golf Week encompasses two events: The Father & Son Team Classic, now in its 25th year, and the Parent & Child Team Classic. The Father & Son is a two-person team, 54-hole event that takes place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina every July. The event is not just for fathers and sons, but also for all relationships so long as there is a generational gap. The Parent & Child Team Classic is similar to the Father & Son Team Classic but incorporates all other relationships, such as mother and daughter or mother and son. As the largest father and son event in the world, the Father & Son Team Classic has always placed an emphasis on family bonds, particularly those created through memorable events and fun competition.
