Golf Along the Grand Strand


Vendor Information

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Description

With a staggering 120 courses in play, Myrtle Beach proudly calls itself "Golf Capital of the World." Examine the quality of courses, accesss to tee times, customer satisfaction, accommodations and accessibility to the area, and it's clear this is not idle boast!

The quality of Myrtle Beach golf is certainly no secret. Major golf publications consistently rank area courses among the nation's best, based on both reader surveys and critiques by golf "experts." While a slowdown in the economy has put plans for new layouts on hold, established courses such as Grande Dunes and Barefoot Resort, among many others, continue to draw attention.

Adding to Myrtle Beach's appeal is the variety of things to do off the links. Golfers can choose from nearly 2,000 restaurants, exciting nightlife and even a cruise on a casino boat. Shopping for golf equipment and apparel is also a favorite pastime.

Accessibility is another factor in the area's continued growth as a golf destination. An easy drive from the Northeast or Midwest, Myrtle Beach is also served by a number of airlines.

More than 1.2 million golfers annually agree with local tourism officials and cast their votes for the Grand Strand as "Golf Capital of the World."
