Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday announces 'Wintergreen Golf Escape'

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday and Inlet Sports Lodge announce the "Wintergreen Golf Escape" package highlighted by two celebrated Grand Strand courses and luxury resort accommodations.

This superb South Strand stay-and-play starts at $199 (per person, double occupancy) and runs through Jan. 27, 2014. It includes one round each on two of the area's prized layouts - Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue Golf Plantation - as well as a two-night stay in a deluxe Inlet Sports Lodge studio (www.golfholiday.com/packages/inlets-sports-lodge/).

"The shoulder season of December and January offers numerous opportunities for exceptional stay-and-play value here in the Grand Strand," says Bill Golden, president of Golf Holiday. "A perfect example is the 'Wintergreen Golf Escape' with rounds on two of our premier courses and comfortable resort accommodations at a price that's tough to beat."

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club is an acclaimed Mike Strantz design playing to just over 6,500 yards. The strategic, scenic layout is ranked No. 27 nationally in GOLF Magazine's "Top 100 You Can Play" and No. 3 in South Carolina by the same publication. True Blue Golf Plantation - another Strantz gem - has garnered numerous national awards including a coveted spot in Golf Digest's "America's 100 Greatest Public Courses."

Set in the heart of charming Murrells Inlet, Inlet Sports Lodge is a boutique-style, upscale resort. Room decor features hand-carved mahogany doors, pine floors and antique-style crown molding. Each is furnished with flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and complimentary Wi-Fi.

"In room" meals can be enjoyed as the studios come equipped with a kitchenette including a standard refrigerator, two-top burner stove, dishwasher, granite countertops and custom china. Guests can unwind in a living area with a sofa and dining table.

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.
