There are as many Myrtle Beach golf packages as there are courses, and arguing over which one is best is akin to a debate about your favorite flavor of ice cream.
But there is a persuasive case to be made that the Glens Ultimate package is as attractive as any deal on the beach.
The Glens Ultimate from Thomas Golf Vacations provides eight rounds of golf for the price of three.
Book golf at Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf Links, Heather Glen Golf Links and Shaftesbury Glen Golf Club and receive your fourth round free at Possum Trot Golf Club and you get free afternoon replays on all four courses. Yes, everything in the preceding sentence is accurate.
The quality of the Glens Group courses is a significant part of the package’s popularity.
Glen Dornoch, which has five holes that bring the Intracoastal Waterway into play, is one the prettiest Myrtle Beach golf courses. The final three holes, highlighted by par 3 17th, are unforgettable. All play a long the waterway and will test your game. Make sure you leave time to enjoy a drink on the clubhouse deck, which overlooks the double-green No. 9 and 18 share.
Heather Glen was named best new public course in America when it opened in 1987 and has only gotten better. The 27-hole facility, a Scottish inspired design, is home to the Red, White and Blue nines and golfers are happy to play them in any combination.
Possum Trot is one of the area’s golden oldies. The layout opened in 1968 and it proudly delivers on its promise of being Myrtle Beach’s friendliest course. Possum Trot is a classic design that delivers an enjoyable round, good conditions, and a name people never forget.
Shaftesbury underwent a substantial renovation in 2016, adding 250,000-square-feet of waste bunkers that brought great visual contrast to the course. The waste bunkers didn’t add significantly to the difficulty of the round and the depth of the once once-cavernous green-side bunkers were reduced, enhancing the layout’s playability.
If you want to play a lot of outstanding golf this spring, the Glen Ultimate needs to be near the top of your list.
