Moving to Myrtle Beach? Here Are Three Great Frequent Player/Resident Membership Options

If you’re considering a move to the Grand Strand and intend to take full advantage of its seemingly endless golf course options, you have three great membership categories available to scratch your frequent-player itch.

While two of the three programs have a local residency or property ownership requirement for year-round use, all three offer a winter card or “snowbird” option for a modest fee that gives any purchaser access to preferred tee time rates during the late fall and winter months. One of the programs even allows you to earn credits with each paid round you play which are then redeemable for free rounds and additional savings!

With the wide array of award-winning Myrtle Beach-area designs accessible under each of these programs, it’s hard to go wrong with any of them. Many players join more than one program, giving them maximum flexibility and a variety of choices.

Below, we have outlined each program’s primary membership benefits. We encourage you to check them out, and click the links at the top of each category for more information to help you decide which frequent player card is the right fit for you!
