Celebrate the Holidays with a Golf Getaway to Myrtle Beach

The holiday season is traditionally for spending time with family and friends, giving thanks for another year’s worth of blessings while also giving gifts to loved ones.

But you don’t have to stay at home to honor those holiday rituals, especially when you can celebrate the occasion with family and friends in the ultimate golf destination.

Offering low offseason rates on golf and accommodations, Myrtle Beach Golf provides the perfect opportunity to get away from it all over the holidays with a great golf trip.

Give yourself and your loved ones a holiday season to remember by booking a group getaway to the Grand Strand. Here are some of the holiday highlights you don’t want to miss:

Thanksgiving Weekend:

Turkeys aren’t the only fine-feathered friends on the menu in Myrtle Beach, where golfers also pursue birdies and eagles just for sport. While much of the country spends Thanksgiving weekend in the house huddled around the TV and dinner table, Myrtle Beach’s mild autumn climate makes it possible to enjoy the great outdoors.

The slower offseason also makes it easier and more affordable to schedule the perfect golf package on the Grand Strand, where the vast majority of our 80-plus championship courses are open for play – even on Turkey Day. Make it a long weekend and book a three- or four-day package that includes oceanfront accommodations as well as great golf.

Get your golf buddies together for a fun weekend retreat, or treat the entire family with a holiday vacation to the beach. Take the more sporting members of your family for a round of golf while the non-golfers go Black Friday shopping or enjoy the beach and indoor swimming facilities at the resort. It’s a win-win scenario for the whole family.

The golf doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down. Weather permitting, take the family for a round of miniature golf for a fun and competitive round of putt-putt, or seek shelter at TopGolf. If the family prefers a night off from all things golf, check out the holiday shows at local theaters or enjoy a night on the town at Broadway at the Beach.

Among the many events to enjoy over Thanksgiving weekend are the Nov. 28 Myrtle Beach Turkey Trot 5K at The Market Common and the Surfside Beach Turkey Trot, giving runners the chance to burn off some calories before their Turkey Day feasts. The 50th annual South Carolina State Bluegrass Festival runs all weekend at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. On Saturday, Nov. 30, the 35th Annual Intracoastal Christmas Regatta, featuring a flotilla of brightly-decorated boats, sails from Little River to North Myrtle Beach.

Christmas Break:

Many adults and children get time off from work and school for this holiday, making it the ideal time to escape to the beach for some rest, relaxation and golf. The winter golf season offers the most affordable rates of the year on tee times and lots of available tee times so you can schedule your round around the family’s plans.

December presents a good opportunity to book a golf package to Myrtle Beach and bring the family along for the trip. Golfing members of the group can play virtually any course at the lowest price of the year, and the resorts offer their best rates to attract offseason visitors. Make the holiday vacation an early Christmas present for the whole crew.

Among the month’s many fun festivities are The Great Christmas Light Show at the North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex & Park (Nov. 25-Dec. 30), Night of a Thousand Candles at Brookgreen Gardens (Dec. 5-22), the North Myrtle Beach Christmas Parade (Dec. 7), the Surfside Beach Christmas Parade (Dec. 14), the CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational (Dec. 17-21) and the Beach Ball Classic (Dec. 26-31).

New Year’s:

What better way to ring in 2020 than a trip to Myrtle Beach for golf and good times? The courses are wide open, and so are the New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Sure, the weather can be relatively chilly around the flipping of the calendar, but often New Year’s Day offers nice conditions for a getting outside and playing a round.

After a day on the course, there are plenty of options for warming up and celebrating the holiday, including several New Year’s Eve parties at local night clubs and theaters.

La Belle Amie Vineyards gets the party started with the annual New Year’s Bon Fire (Dec. 28), as well as Light Up the New Year at Brookgreen Gardens (Dec. 28-31). On the big night, check out the New Year’s Eve Fireworks Extravaganza at Broadway at the Beach, Lulu’s New Year’s Eve Party at Barefoot Landing, the Southern Times Square Ball Drop at The Market Common.

Suddenly the thought of spending the holidays at home doesn’t sound quite so appealing, especially when you and your family and friends could be playing golf in Myrtle Beach and making some vacation memories.
