Myrtle Beach golf vacation packages tough to beat this time of year
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The weather on the Grand Strand on the coast of the Carolinas is pretty much perfect, the kids are in school, and the prices are right, setting you up for a perfect buddy trip to play as much unabashed golf as you like.
It’s sort of the shoulder season in Myrtle Beach, though quite honestly I’d rather be here in the fall than the spring and certainly over the summer. One of the biggest reasons is that the courses are in terrific shape this time of year, but more than that, the golf packages are ridiculously low, especially considering the quality of the golf and the fact that the beach is in your view.
For example, you can take advantage of the “Legends Triple Play” package, which features five really fun and different courses.
Scottish-inspired Legends Golf and Resort is located in the Central Strand, just minutes from Myrtle Beach International Airport and in proximity to numerous restaurants and area attractions. Legends’ three-course lineup includes Heathland, Moorland, and Parkland, designed by Tom Doak and P.B. Dye.
The Legends Triple Play package starts $119 (per person, per day, quad occupancy) through Nov. 18, and features three rounds of golf on either the Heathland, Moorland or Parkland courses, and Oyster Bay courses; three nights of condo lodging at select properties including Bay View Resort, Grand Atlantic, Compass Cove, Ocean Reef and Regency Towers; free daily breakfasts and lunches at the Legends clubhouse, free entree (per golfer) at Mykonos and Rioz restaurants ($50 value) and two free beers at each course each day.
Another great package deal comes courtesy of Mystical Golf, which has three terrific golf courses under its umbrella – Witch Golf Links, The Wizard and Man O’ War. You can get lodging, golf breakfast, lunch and two beers each day, plus a steak dinner at one of Logan’s Steakhouse starting at less than $100 each day, which is ridiculous.
I just played all three of those courses, and can tell you they are in terrific shape and a lot of fun. And you won’t find a more hospitable host than Claude Pardue, the president and CEO of Mystical Golf. He really does take great pride in those courses as they are continually improving. And if you play there, don’t be surprised if he greets you personally.
