Just wanted to relay some information about the hotel/restaurant situation for the 2015 Master National. Hotel rooms: 245 rooms in Cheraw (15 minutes from grounds), 377 rooms in Hartsville (15 minutes from grounds) and 1000+ rooms in Florence (45-50 minutes from the grounds). Plus, there are numerous camp sites, lodges and cabins within 15-20 minutes from the grounds. Restaurants are plentiful as there is everything from your local food places to your chain restaurants such as Applebees, Outback, etc.
Further information will be provided on the Master National website and Cooper River Retriever Club of South Carolina's Facebook page.

Wow, I love Cooper Black, but a 700 dog MN is going to be a tall task on the grounds. I am sure they will make it work and work well, but that's a lot of dogs on those grounds

The grounds in the area should not be a problem, with Moree's and others. As far as hotel rooms, the quality falls off in Cheraw pretty quickly after the Quality Inn. Hartsville is a great option. If we are locked out of Cheraw or Hartsville, we usually stay in Laurinburg. It is about 40 minutes from the grounds and has good hotel and restaurant options. The downside is that you go through Society Hill on the way to the grounds. Watch your speed limit in Society Hill, for sure.
On a 2 day HT I usually leave my house at 5:30 am and run Saturday and stay the night at the Q Inn then come home after running Sunday. I have driven it back and forth a few times. It's doable so if anyone needs a place to stay in a pinch I have room.

Bennettsville, is 20 minutes from the grounds and has two small hotels and limited dinning.
Is the Jameson Inn still there? Just curious why no one mentioned it.

Jameson Inn is my favorite place to stay if near or on the way to a trial. Nice clean not to $ and dogs ok in room.
Think the Jameson in Cheraw is now a Quality Inn. might be ok if they allow dogs.
Most all the motels within range of event will be 3rd tier type Budget Inns etc.
