Myrtle Beach offers much more than just great golf.
The Pavilion may be gone, but the jewel of the Strand is still Grand, especially if you play golf. Myrtle Beach has been referred to as “Golftown USA,” “Golf City USA” and the “Golfing Capital of the World.” And for good reason, with 103 golf courses to play, this area along Highway 17 is a slice (no pun intended) of heaven for golfers.
Mickey McCamish, president of Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday, points out while there are fewer golf courses in the area than previous years, due to the adjustments in the industry, the number of public courses still surpasses other popular golfing destinations.“Golfers have many places to choose from for a true golf vacation,” he said. “However, I believe that Myrtle Beach offers quality, as well as variety, that cannot be matched anywhere in the world. We have courses designed by all of the top pros in the industry. There is truly a course for everyone.” When asked about which ones he would recommend, he commented that they (courses) are “all great. It would be hard to narrow it down because each of them has their own uniqueness and special characteristics.”
