Myrtle Beach's best golf value is right now during the holidays
Myrtle Beach has a dizzying tee time rate structure. Courses have up to a dozen different rates based on the time of year.
But right now during the holidays is probably the best combination of price and weather.
Tee time operators report the courses really slow down during the holidays, filled with mostly local players. It seems the golf foursome takes a back seat to all those family obligations this time of year.
So courses are practically giving away their tee times through the New Year.
You can get on some solid bargain courses for less than $40 right now including cart, but I think now is the time to indulge in an upper-tier course that runs closer to $200 in the peak season for everyone who usually shuns three-figure golf. Right now the conditions are almost as good as the peak season, and the weather is sunny and has remained in the 70s.
All you have to worry about is dwindling sunlight by 5 p.m. and rough starting to go brown in some areas.
To give you an idea of the bargain, there are about 15 Grand Strand courses that charge $150-200 in the peak season. Right now, there is only one course, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club charging over $100 ($102).
Another bonus, you’re less likely to run into the five-hour round these days since courses are empty.
