GolfTown, USA. Golf Mecca. Seaside Golf Capital of the World. Golfers Paradise.
No matter what you call the Myrtle Beach area, the fact is it's one of the greatest golf resorts in the USA. Not only does it have more public golf courses per capita than any other place in the country, it also has some of the best courses.
Many of the most recognised golfers and course designers in the industry have placed their signatures on Myrtle Beach area golf courses, including Robert Trent Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Arnold Palmer, Tom Fazio, Greg Norman and Davis Love III. Stunning courses in breath taking Lowcountry settings, where golfers can gaze at magnificent live oaks, sky-high pines and fluttering palmettos. Where fertile wetlands provide sustenance for all sorts of wildlife. Where ocean breezes blow and waterways meander just a few steps away.
Strand Courses are meticulously manicured. Golf is serious business here, and courses are kept in tip-top shape. The only thing you'll have to worry about is your game.
But aesthetics are only one component of a well-rounded golf course. It's also important to offer variety, such as different levels of challenges and a mix of hole lengths and a nice layout, with strategically located hazards and varying elevations. Golfers who play Myrtle Beach area courses will find these qualities and others in abundance.
This is also a great place for family golf vacations. Many area courses offer specials for junior golfers and families during the summer, along with assorted camps, clinics, tournaments, and other activities, and with Grand Strand golf so reasonably priced a family golf vacation is possible any time of the year.
Last but not least the Grand Strand is home to more than 120 golf courses.
