Myrtle Beach is known as the Seaside Golf Capital of the World, and there is a great reason why!
Myrtle Beach is the only place in the world where the ratio of golf courses per land area is not high. Drive down Highway 17 and you will run across a golf course every few feet! Myrtle Beach has a variety of courses that can work in Myrtle Beach golf packages for every budget, all the way from the most expensive to the least and everything in between! Because of the large number of courses in the area, a Myrtle Beach golf guide will come in handy when you are booking your tee times for your next Myrtle Beach golf package.
With the high number of courses comes high variety: the Myrtle Beach area is home to some top-notch courses, some average courses and those that are best for the budget minded golfers and those that are just beginning to learn the game. Even with the area playing host to over 100 golf courses, only two of them made Golfweek's most recent top 200 modern and classic courses: the Dunes Golf and Beach Club and the Caledonia Fish and Golf Club, ranked 89th and 73rd respectively in the modern course category.
But, like any list, this list is subjective and there are many golfers who would argue that there are many other Grand Strand courses that belong on the list. You will find many highly ranked and reviewed courses along the Strand in a Myrtle Beach golf guide.
One thing you will notice in a Myrtle Beach golf guide is that rate changes are frequent based on weather, time (am or pm), and season. Be sure to ask the course for pricing or your package provider with Myrtle Beach Golf Authority. The off-seasons are naturally the cheapest, as are afternoon tee times, and watch out for courses that use "double tees," starting golfers at the 1st and 10th holes at specific times during the day.
In a Myrtle Beach golf guide, you might be surprised to learn there are quite a few area courses that allow walking, but always check with the course first. Walking is a great way to get extra exercise on the course.
