Everyone remember earlier in the year when the Wilmington area got to host a PGA tour event? Well, that was a one time thing because Quail Hollow in Charlotte is hosting the PGA Championship next week (August 7-13) and couldn’t host two PGA events in one year. They chose the major championship and therefore, moved the yearly tournament that is normally held at the golf course to one in Wilmington. So, with the last major championship around the corner and just down the road in Charlotte, why would Myrtle Beach be on your mind? Simple, some of the best golf courses in the country can be found right here along the Grand Strand. Plus, with us just being a few hours in the car away from Charlotte, one might be inclined to watch the PGA Championship and then head to the beach for some championship golf of their own!
Let’s take a look at the course designer of Quail Hollow – George Cobb. He also designed a local golf course that you can play – Bald Head Island Golf Club. Take a short trip from Myrtle Beach across the border into North Carolina to play this truly beautiful and simplistic golf course. Better yet, give us a call and we’ll put together a Myrtle Beach golf package including many of the sought after golf courses and even a course that consists of holes that were designed to replicate many of the major championship holes. Create your own “grand slam” with a Myrtle Beach golf package of championship caliber!
So, after attending the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, NC take a short drive down the road to Myrtle Beach and great some golf memories to last a lifetime.
