The golf package was invented in Myrtle Beach. It remains the preferred way to book a golf vacation for the same reason people love all-inclusive vacations – it's easy to book & maximizes value for your dollar.
Some brave souls prefer to construct their itinerary individually, but here are five reasons, among many, that booking a golf package is the sure-fire way to go.
This makes the process much more efficient. Try calling four golf courses and check price and availability for a group of 12 beginning with the 8:04 a.m. tee time? It makes my head hurt just thinking about. Your golf packager has all of the Myrtle Beach area tee sheets and prices in front of him (or her), so use this to your advantage. You'll get a customized plan that can be easily shared with, and divided by the members of your group.
Management companies pair courses and accommodations, maximizing value for players and, often times, making the area’s best layouts that much more accessible.
The vast majority of golf packages allow players to choose their itinerary from up to 20+ courses without a variation in price. In fact, the most popular golf package booked in Myrtle Beach isn't a pre-made plan, it's "the Custom golf package." The broad cross section of courses allows group leaders to tailor trips and guarantee a great golf lineup.

Hey, we know a golf trip isn't a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing - unless we're talking about Scotland! If your group takes a trip every few years, every few months, or every few weeks, it's nice to work with a company who has your history of where you've played, where you've stayed, and your group dynamics.
