Myrtle Beach 2010 (Option 2)
Option number 2 (number 3 that I have shown) is a group of 4 rounds at the Glens Golf Group. Four courses, some Scottish feel to them all, and another set of courses we have never played. Feature a mid level course, two lower high level courses, and Glenn Dorach, Myrtle Beach Course of the Year for 2009. Factoring in rooms (basing it on 28 people) we are looking at around 322.00 a person. Another interesting thing to consider, is we can get pre-booked replays here, play the course in the morning, get a free round on the same course in the afternoon.
Possum Trot Golf Club is located in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and features 18 well-kept fairways and manicured greens. We're known as "The Friendly Course".Commitment to excellence is Possum Trot's ongoing goal for generations of year-round visitors to the Myrtle Beach area, while always offering competitive rates. The conditioning, the course appearance, and the friendliness of the staff are excellent as always.
Possum Trot Golf Club also offers the best practice facility among golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area. A driving range, a short game range, a large practice bunker, and a huge putting green will get your game in shape in no time. For golf instruction at a first-class golf school, Possum Trot is the home base of the Glens Group Golf Academy.
A truly unique concept, blending a world-class golf course with a superb fishing venue along the Waccamaw River. Shaftesbury Glen is now open and taking tee times.
Architect Clyde Johnston brings the same traditional look to his 18-hole championship course - elevated greens, picture-perfect traps, wide-flowing fairways, demanding doglegs, tantalizing par 3's and long par 5's. From stone-gated entrance to Olde English clubhouse, all evokes the spirit of Shaftesbury, England - the project's namesake...just ten minutes from the heart of Restaurant Row, via the new Conway Bypass.
Inspired by the earlier traditions of golf, architects Willard Byrd and Clyde Johnston and a small group of ardent lovers of the game have molded this historic site into a golf course masterpiece just north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The natural beauty of changing elevations, gigantic 100 year old pines, colorful dogwoods, glistening hollies, graceful live oaks, winding streams and brooks (burns) and the lovely Firth of Clyde...all crowned with a 19th Century British-styled clubhouse, have created a showcase evoking the beauty of the renown Scottish golf courses.
Once played, you will remember the distinctive characteristics of each hole, each green, the unusual bunkers (especially the Devils Mistress!), heather-laced dunes...a course dedicated to the ardent players who appreciate the tradition and beauty of golf.
GLEN DORNOCH: 2009 MYRTLE BEACH GOLF COURSE OF THE YEAR:
Master architect Clyde Johnston's creation, Glen Dornoch, welcomed its first players in September of 1996. The 270-acre site is blessed with a dense stand of oaks, pines, and magnolias.
Coastal golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area are usually rather flat but this site has several natural 35-foot elevation changes, which slope down to South Carolina's most beautiful stretch of the Intracoastal Waterway.
With respect for the land, the golf course was built one hole at a time. At Myrtle Beach's Glen Dornoch, each hole flows with the natural terrain of lakes, live oaks, and spectacular marsh and river views.
The three closing holes are the most talked about in Myrtle Beach. If you’ve ever dreamed of playing one of the world’s truly great courses.... that dream can now be a reality.
