Nowhere along the Grand Strand (a sixty mile area of coastline along the beautiful Atlantic Ocean) will you find more golfing opportunities than in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina – which makes this number one destination for the avid golfer. Golfers from around the country flock each spring and fall to enjoy some of the most beautifully maintained professional golf courses in the world. A dream vacation for golfers is easiest to plan when you book a golf package in advance, and is an ideal way to experience what this part of the Strand has to offer devoted golf enthusiasts.
Most golf packages are all-inclusive, which means that you will receive reservations on the best courses as well as first-class accommodations on the beach, wonderful dining opportunities, and admission to the best entertainment that Myrtle Beach has to offer. While there are many companies that sell vacations for the golfer in packages that include everything related to your trip, you may also book golf packages through resorts in the Myrtle Beach area. Many of these golf packages will allow you to choose from the many courses, while some will limit your choices to just a few courses. When you book with a resort, you will usually always receive reduced-rate prices on a golf package that includes lodging and meals as well as activities that are available at the resort. From courses on North Myrtle Beach to those on the Brunswick Isles, like Bald Head Island, the choices are plentiful and one would need to vacation in many seasons in order to experience all that it has to offer the golfer.
Lodging may or may not be offered in with Myrtle Beach vacation golfer's package. If not, you can always book great lodging at the many hotels, golf villas, cabins or condos that are scattered through Horry County, South Carolina, home of Myrtle Beach. Finding accommodations close to your favorite golf courses in the area is not hard – as you can scarcely travel a 1/4 mile without finding lush green courses beckoning you to stop in and tee off. When booking accommodations for golf packages that do not include them, try to book as far ahead as possible to get the best rates and the most number of choices – especially if booking during the biggest times for golf, spring and fall. You should also consider golfing during the weekdays in lieu of weekend golfing, as the weekends are a busier time for local hotels, which always drives up the rates that they charge. Thursday, Friday and Saturday night hotel reservations may cost you significantly more than staying over on Sunday through Wednesday. Of course, choosing a Myrtle Beach vacation for the golfer that includes your lodging costs and meals gives you a flat rate that you can depend on when drawing up your vacation budget.
