Five Tips for Planning your Fall Golf Trip to Myrtle Beach
Summer has only started and golfers are already counting down the days till autumn, when the heat and humidity begin to fade into perfect fall course and playing conditions.
That’s especially true for golfers who make the annual autumn journey to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to play some of the best courses on the East Coast in an ideal climate. So while you are chasing the little white ball around in the blistering heat this summer, remember that it’s time to start planning your fall golf getaway to Myrtle Beach.
Starting in the sunny days of September and running through the mild temperatures of November, the fall golf season is prime time for a group retreat to the Grand Strand. And now is the prime time to round up your friends, family or regular foursome, select your dates and check out the great rates and specials available through MyrtleBeachGolf.com.
Here’s a list of things to consider when booking your fall golf vacation:
Courses: Golfers have plenty of options when it comes to deciding which courses to play, with more than 80 to choose from within a 60-mile radius of Myrtle Beach. From highly acclaimed layouts like Caledonia Golf & Fish Plantation in the Lowcountry of Pawleys Island, SC, to Jack Nicklaus-designed Rivers Edge in Shalotte, NC, the stretch of Carolina coastline is covered with award-winning links. Search our list and descriptions of each layout to find the right fit for your foursome.
Lodging: Where you stay is almost as important as where you play, particularly for golfers who are also looking to take advantage of some valuable beach time during their visit. As part of its partnership with Brittain Resorts, Myrtle Beach Golf offers excellent lodging options at some of the top oceanfront resorts on the Grand Strand, including North Beach Plantation on the North Strand, Breakers Resort in downtown Myrtle Beach, and Litchfield Beach & Golf on the South Strand.
Packages: Want to save money on tee times and lodging? Check out Myrtle Beach Golf’s variety of packages that save you money on both. Among the many packages worth weighing are the two-night, two-round Clubhouse Pass, the three-night, three-round Myrtle Beach Elite plan, or the four-night, four-round PGA 4 Golf Package, or you can build your own package with the Prime Time deals. Bonuses range from $100 gift cards to free food, drinks and replays.
Travel: Organizing your travel plans can be the key to spending more time on the course and less time on a plane. Myrtle Beach International Airport recently added a new list of direct flights, with non-stop service available to and from more than 50 destinations. Groups may consider renting a vehicle, depending on the distance to your courses each day, or you can catch a shuttle, cab or Uber to make your tee times. Those close enough to commute by car can make their travel plans to get the most out of their trip.
Off the Course: As much as your foursome might prefer, you can’t spend your entire time playing golf. Fortunately, Myrtle Beach has a wide selection of off-the-course fun to make your trip complete. For serious golf junkies, follow up your daily rounds with a trip to TopGolf or one of the many putt-putt courses on the Grand Strand. For those looking to mix it up, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing and The Market Common feature a variety of shopping, dining, entertainment and nightlife options.
Once you’ve gathered all the information you need, it’s time to book your Myrtle Beach golf vacation and get ready for the ultimate trip to the ultimate golf destination. After the summer heat breaks and the cool fall air filters in, you will be glad you did.
