As golfers prepare to emerge from their weather-induced hibernation, Myrtle Beach, S.C., the game’s most popular destination, awaits players who are ready to resume traveling.
The Grand Strand, as the area is affectionately known, is home to 90 courses that range from Pawleys Island to just across the state line in Brunswick County, N.C. While the area offers a wide range of experiences, one common denominator is the commitment every facility has made to implement enhanced sanitation protocols to ensure player safety.
Speaking of comfortable environments, with average high temperatures of 68 in March, 72 in April and 80 in May, Myrtle Beach delivers near perfect weather for a spring trip, allowing players to pull their shorts out of the drawer.
Golfers flock to Myrtle Beach to enjoy the unsurpassed combination of quality and value the area provides. Layouts such as Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, the Jack Nicklaus-designed Pawleys Plantation and Island and Tidewater Golf Club, among many others, put a smile on the face of the most discerning golfers.
The Grand Strand is home to layouts designed by Rees Jones, Mike Strantz, Tom Doak, Robert Trent Jones Sr. and so many more, making the destination equally appealing to groups with an interest in diverse architectural experiences. There isn’t a destination in America that can match Myrtle Beach’s range of golf course offerings.
Prestwick Country Club, a Pete and P.B. Dye design, couldn’t be more different than Man O’ War, a Dan Maples creation that plays around a 100+ acre lake, but both are equally enjoyable in their own way.
Myrtle Beach is also the destination of choice for competitive players. Myrtle Beach’s event lineup will be highlighted by the 38th annual World Amateur Handicap Championship, which will be played Aug. 30 through Sept. 3. The 72-hole will event is expected to attract 3,000+ players from all 50 states.
That’s what makes Myrtle Beach special. It’s the rare destination that has the ability to be all things to all people, and as the nation battles Covid-19, that’s more important than ever.
