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.
