For any avid golfer, the Grand Strand is a must for your golfing bucket list. The Grand Strand refers to a 60-mile stretch of beaches along the South Carolina shoreline. While beaches might not be all that thrilling to those who love the game of golf, this string of beaches is also home to somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 golf courses.
Why Myrtle Beach for Golf?
The most obvious reason to consider Myrtle Beach as your “go to” golf destination is the abundance of golf courses available in a relatively small stretch of land. These are not ordinary golf courses either. They have been designed and crafted by some of the biggest names in the business including names like Pete Dye, Greg Norman, Arnold Palmer, Robert Trent Jones, Jack Nicklaus, and Tom Fazio.
There is also the variety of Myrtle Beach golf courses to consider. You will find courses offering varying degrees of challenge. Some are suitable for beginning golfers, while others are appropriate for more advanced – even professional golfers.
Top Tier Golf Courses to Consider
For those who love the game and consider yourselves to be truly talented players, you will not want to miss out on these amazing – and challenging – Myrtle Beach golf courses:
- Barefoot Golf Resort’s Dye Course (ranked among the five toughest golf courses in Myrtle Beach by Golf.com).
- Dunes Golf and Beach Club
- King’s North at Myrtle Beach
- TPC Myrtle Beach
Mid-Range Difficulty Courses to Consider
While each of these courses offers some degree of difficulty, they do not require quite the same level of accuracy, precision, and control to enjoy a great game playing. They include:
- Glen Dornoch
- Oyster Bay
- Tidewater Golf Club
- Tradition Club
- Willbrook Plantation
Even the weather can present its own challenges and variety during different seasons of the year and, in some cases, different times of the day. For instance, heat, humidity, and later afternoon thunderstorms can play a huge role for anyone’s game during the months of July and August. While Myrtle Beach is a four-season golf community, there are days in winter where frost or freezes may delay your start or present somewhat unique challenges to your game play.
The beauty of the golf courses also varies greatly from one course to the next. South Carolina is home to sprawling plantation golf courses with an “Old South” atmosphere that includes hanging moss and beautiful landscaping. You will also find grand golf resorts with numerous amenities and, sometimes, several golf courses from which to choose. Then there are the golf courses that are on the beaches offering stunning complexity, unique wind challenges, and amazing views.
There are also standard golf courses as well as links golf courses to consider in the area to add to the variety and challenges. The bottom line is that Myrtle Beach offers plenty of reasons to visit for great games of golf.
