Duh. No destination matches the quality and quantity of Myrtle Beach’s on-course offerings. Seven of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses,” according to Golf Digest, reside along the Grand Strand as do more than 50, 4-star layouts. The area has some of the nation’s best courses but it’s the number of quality layouts that separates the destination from the competition.
Myrtle Beach rose to prominence as a destination on the value it provided consumers and that remains as true today as it was 30 years ago.
"The golf package" (lodging & tee times in one transaction) was perfected in Myrtle Beach and in good economic times and bad, it always returns great value to players.
Let’s be honest, golf is only half the equation and unlike some destinations that shutter when the sun goes down, the fun is only just beginning in Myrtle Beach. There's no better place to blow off a little steam and have a good time with great friends. Restaurants abound and there are nearly as many nightclubs as there are golf courses. If you don’t have a good time here, you're just not trying!
Myrtle Beach can meet the needs of any group. Players looking for a luxury golf trip have as many options as a group looking for a moderately priced vacation and that's the beauty of a Myrtle Beach golf trip. Whether a group wants top 100 golf and gourmet restaurants or a value package and budget meals, golfers leave the Grand Strand happy.
Beyond the golf and nightlife, Myrtle Beach’s coastal ambiance is a powerful attraction. The area has ample golf, dining and entertainment options, without the hassles of a larger metropolitan area. Throw-in the fact the Grand Strand has non-stop flight service from 25 cities, and weather that allows people to play throughout the year, and the area has an ideal location.
We would like to thank all Myrtle Beach Passport Members who played in less than ideal conditions today in one of their seasonal tournaments Thanks for coming and we hope to see you soon!

Pro Tip Tuesday!! Bunker Play! Often regarded as one of the more difficult shots in golf, many players struggle with playing out of a bunker. Using just a few short tips, bunker play can become much easier! 1. Ground yourself with solid footing. When watching the PGA Tour, you see all the players dig their feet into the sand a little. This helps them to maintain proper balance to hit a well executed shot. The rules of golf prohibit you from "testing" the surface with a club or any other object, so digging your feet in a little can also help you detect the texture and firmness of the sand. 2. Have a slightly open stance. This will help promote the type of swing you are looking for that results in a high lofted, soft landing shot, especially for greenside bunkers. 3. Choke down on the club. After digging your feet into the sand, your body is now slightly closer to the ball. Choking down an inch or so will help compensate for this, and will help you from digging too deep into the sand. 4. Pick a spot to look. Your eyes should not be looking directly at the ball with a bunker shot. Unlike other types of shots, you want to hit about 1" to 2" behind the ball. Picking a spot about that far behind the ball to focus your eyes is ideal. The exact distance can vary depending on the firmness of the sand, but your eyes should never be focused on the top of the ball with a bunker shot. Thanks for tuning in! Matt Lunden, PGA
