If you are looking for a place to go where you can play
course every day and not pay a fortune for it. Then,
come back year
after year and still not play the same course twice?
Beach is your place.
There are over 110 courses that offer just about any
style of golf
that you may enjoy. The area is also known as The Grand
stretches from southern North Carolina down past
Pawley's Island. The
courses span the full spectrum of quality and cost so
accommodate any budget.
The area is especially good for a group of guys looking
for a fun
getaway. Find 7 of your best friends, pick 3-6 courses,
play 36 holes
a day, go out for some fun at night, and you have a
that you will be looking to take every year. Also, if
you are planning
a bachelor party, this is a great location too. There
are a number of
"those" types of establishments that will keep the groom
How do you get a trip like this planned? Your first step
is to contact
a golf packages. They will be able to provide you with
times, and advice on which courses to play based on your
do a search in MSN, Google, or Yahoo! to find a packager
like. Then, do you own research. Read up on the courses
that you are
considering. Some shady packagers will push courses that
incentives to sell. Don't fall into this trap. These are
sub-par courses. I recommend approaching your packager
with a list of
courses and a budget. Then see what you can do.
There are a number of things to consider before you
favorite golf packager. Where do you want to play?
Myrtle Beach can be
broken up into three areas. North Myrtle, Central Myrtle
Myrtle. A drive from south Myrtle to North Myrtle can be
over an hour,
so plan your trip accordingly.
The next thing to consider is what types of courses you
want to play.
They range from utra economy to premium. With the
former, you can get
a very inexpensive round. However, you will not be
golf. It's better to mix one of these rounds in with
better courses in
order to keep costs down. The later, premium courses,
are where the
great golf is. You will pay for it though. Even in
Myrtle Beach the
top courses are expensive. Some go as high at $185.
