The Grand Strand is known for the 100+ golf courses in the area. During the spring and fall, Myrtle Beach sees a huge influx of golfers that take their annual Myrtle Beach golf vacations and spend several days with their group playing some of the top ranked golf courses in the country. During the summer, Myrtle Beach is known as one of the top beach vacation destinations and families from across the nation converge on the area to partake in their annual summer vacation. While the families are in town many are on the lookout for things to do as a family and that leads us to ask the question: Is Myrtle Beach Kid Friendly for Golf? The answer is yes! The Grand Strand has a program entitled Kids Play Free which undoubtedly proves that Myrtle Beach is Kid Friendly for golf.
The area has approximately 40 golf courses (many of the top ranked in the area and around the nation) that allows junior golfers under the age of 17 to play for free when accompanied by a paying adult. There are other facilities that the juniors may not play for free, but heavily discounted tee times are available (especially during spring and fall golf season). The Myrtle Beach area is known for being kid friendly in golf and making sure to help grow the future stars of the game.
Here is a list (as of 2016) of the courses that participate in the Kids Play Free program to ensure that Myrtle Beach kid friendly golf continues:
