Myrtle Beach has been a destination for summer vacations for many years now, but after the summer heat is over another kind of trip to Myrtle Beach begins to get planned—the fall golf trip.
There are a lot of factors that make up a great golf trip, and we’ve got some tips for the best places to stay and the best Myrtle Beach golf courses to play.
One of the best places to book some tee times for is Barefoot Resort.
There are four great and very different courses located in one place, making it a great place to get a package deal. From the Norman Course which will make players quickly learn that the “bump and run” is a tool they need to have in their bag of tricks, to the Love Course which is a more traditional course with Lowcountry charm in the form of the ruins of an old plantation home, players of all kinds will enjoy playing at Barefoot Resort.
But while Barefoot Resort is a standard for any Myrtle Beach golf trip, there are some great courses that are more off the beaten path.
The Willard Byrd Course at Sea Trail Resort is one of those courses. Located just 30 miles up the coast in Sunset Beach, North Carolina, this resort course is built around seven lakes and is a favorite of women golfers who enjoy the challenging short game opportunity.
Another large part of a great Myrtle Beach golf vacation is where you chose to stay, and there are a few prime choices for places that will be great for any non-golfers in the group, as well as those who want to spend all their time on the greens.
Ocean Creek Resort can help you book your golf packages, and offers a great beachfront location with the added bonus of a 57-acre complex so guests feel secluded from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach.
Avista Resort is a full-service condominium hotel that has the basic pools, hot tubs and stellar oceanfront location. It also has a great on-site restaurant and easy access to Ocean Drive, where the shag dance originated and the location of many great restaurants and things to in north Myrtle Beach.
And those who are looking to give the southern end of Myrtle Beach a try should check out Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort, with three courses located on site, as well as a lazy river, pool, health club and day spa.
Myrtle Beach is a great choice for a golf trip any time of the year.
