South Carolina's 'Myrtle Beach Premier Package' for winter golf

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- Highlighted by temperate winter weather and unrivaled value, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday and Classic Golf Getaways announce the "Myrtle Beach Premier Package" featuring six rounds for the price of three and spacious Grand Strand accommodations.

Starting at $208 per person through Jan. 16, 2013 (three-night minimum, taxes included), this golf-rich package offers three rounds with complimentary carts and daily replays on an array of the area's finest courses: TPC Myrtle Beach, Founders Club, Arrowhead, Shaftesbury Glen Golf & Fish Club, Indian Wells, Prestwick, Wicked Stick Links and International Club (

Lodging options include an oceanfront resort or a relaxing golf villa with easy access to and from Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) as well as numerous attractions like The Alabama Theatre, House of Blues, Broadway at the Beach and the seafood capital of Murrells Inlet. The Grand Strand offers 60-plus miles of sweeping Atlantic Coast as well as scores of dining / nightlife options.

"The Myrtle Beach Premier Package is ideal for playing 36 a day with comfortable, quiet accommodations to recharge at night," says Bill Golden, president of Golf Holiday. "With much of the U.S. already blanketed by early snowstorms, great sunup to sundown golf and good times are just quick flight away."

Getting to Myrtle Beach has never been easier. Multiple airlines offer direct flights to Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) from more than 20 cities from Canada to Florida. The Grand Strand is within a half day drive of Southeastern population centers like Atlanta, Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, and a day's drive from Washington D.C., Philadelphia and other East Coast and Midwest cities.
