There are two simple reasons fall is a great time to take a golf trip to Myrtle Beach: weather and price.

In September the South Carolina climate turns pleasantly mild, with temperatures often in the 70s, offering Yankee golfers a break from the chill that starts creeping through the northern states come fall.

Going to Myrtle Beach "is a good way to escape from the colder environments," said a Myrtle Beach golf vacation packager.

Myrtle Beach is also cheaper in autumn than in spring, and there are plenty of golf packages out there that will help you get the most bang for your buck.

Here are some of the best this fall.

Myrtlewood Golf Villas or River Oaks Plantation: This Myrtle Beach Travel package gives you and three friends three nights and three rounds of golf at courses such as Sea Trail-Byrd, Meadowlands and Angel's Trace.
