One of the most popular golf destinations in the United States, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is home to one hundred golf courses (give or take a few) designed by some of the biggest names in golf including Robert Trent Jones, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Fazio. With more public golf courses per person than anywhere else in the country, the Grand Strand also has some of the nation's best rated championship golf courses.
In Myrtle Beach and along the Grand Strand of South Carolina, you'll find something for every golfer whether a beginner or experienced pro. When you play golf on the Grand Strand, you can hit the links on a budget or if you're willing to spend the money you can play on some of the Best Golf Courses in Myrtle Beach like the Dunes Golf & Beach Club or the Caledonia Golf & Fish Club in Pawleys Island (south of Myrtle Beach). Both courses are highly rated and offer a fantastic day of golf you'll never forget.
You can play golf in Myrtle Beach year round, but with highs in the mid 70's the most popular (and most expensive) months are October and April. You can save money and avoid crowds by planning your golf trip during the shoulder months around the peak Myrtle Beach golf season.
South Myrtle Beach Golf is a southern treat for golf lovers. South Myrtle Beach is home to some of the Grand Strand's older yet extremely well-maintained courses. The courses have the rolling greens and impeccable designs you have come to expect of Myrtle Beach, while being ensconced in a beautiful, natural setting. Playing these courses among giant oaks and Spanish moss is like taking a step back in time.
You'll discover a myriad of great Myrtle Beach Golf Courses in the center of the Grand Strand. Some of the most popular Central Myrtle Beach Golf Courses include the highly-rated Dunes Golf & Beach Club, Myrtle Beach National and Prestwick Country Club.
The northern section of the Grand Strand includes North Myrtle Beach and Little River, South Carolina. North Myrtle Beach Golf Courses include a variety of spectacular championship courses including the highly-rated Barefoot Resort courses.
When planning your Myrtle Beach golf getaway, keep in mind that South Carolina's Grand Strand is a sixty mile stretch of beaches running from Little River in the north all the way down south to Georgetown. It's not a good idea to book tee times on the north end and the south end on the same day. If you want to play courses on both ends of the Grand Strand, it is recommended to play them on different days. The preferred option is to book tee times for the day in the same area or at least book a central Grand Strand course along with a north or south end course.
