5 Reasons Myrtle Beach Is Golf's Best Trip
World Tour is one of many reasons Myrtle Beach is golf's ultimate destination.Myrtle Beach is the Golf Capital of the World, GolfTown, USA and where the World Goes to Golf. Pick the moniker you like best, but if you never been to Myrtle Beach the natural inclination might be to wonder what all the fuss is about. Wonder no longer. Here are five reasons the Grand Strand has earned its reputation as the king of the golf trip:
1. 100+ Golf Courses! Duh. No destination matches the quality and quantity of Myrtle Beach’s on-course offerings. Seven of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses,” according to Golf Digest, reside along the Grand Strand as do more than 50, 4-star layouts. The area has some of the nation’s best courses but it’s the number of quality layouts that separates the destination from the competition.
2. Value: Myrtle Beach rose to prominence as a destination on the value it provided consumers and that remains as true today as it was 30 years ago. The golf package was perfected in Myrtle Beach and in good economic times and bad, it always returns great value to players.
3. Entertainment: Let’s be honest, golf is only half the equation and unlike some destinations that shudder when the sun goes down, the fun is only just beginning in Myrtle Beach. There is no better place to blow off a little steam and have a good time with the boys. Restaurants abound and there are nearly as many top 100 nightclubs as there are golf courses. If you don’t have a good time here, you aren’t trying.
4. Versatility: Myrtle Beach can meet the needs of any group. Players looking for a luxury golf trip have as many options as a group looking for a moderately priced vacation and therein lies the beauty and appeal of a Myrtle Beach golf trip. Whether a group wants top 100 golf and gourmet restaurants or a value package and budget meals, everyone leaves the Grand Strand happy.
5. Location, Location, Location: Beyond the golf and nightlife, Myrtle Beach’s coastal ambiance is a powerful attraction. The area has ample golf, dining and entertainment options, without the hassles of a larger metropolitan area. Throw-in the fact the Grand Strand has non-stop flight service from 25 cities, and weather that allows people to play throughout the year, and the area has an ideal location.
