After the “triple H” factor (hazy, hot, humid) typically grips much of the Lower 48 throughout the summer, Myrtle Beach golf’s Second Season brings a cooler crispness to the morning air you likely haven’t experienced in months. The humidity has subsided, and you might start your round with a light pullover that’s quickly tucked away as the sun gains strength.
The random, early-morning fog hovering over the Intracoastal Waterway wanes as the seasonal mildness in the air takes over. And throughout this morning transition, the lower-hanging sunlight accentuates the deep, emerald green of freshly cut bermudagrass, creating a striking contrast with the rich, blue tones of the autumn sky.
The Waterway completes a stunning canvas, hugging the borders of some of the Grand Strand’s most iconic holes. And whether you’re teeing off the 10th at Barefoot Resort’s Norman Course or Grande Dunes Resort Course, or putting out the finishing holes at Glen Dornoch or Myrtlewood Golf Club’s Palmetto Course, the feeling that only a Myrtle Beach golf experience can produce is capped by an invigorating rush to the senses.
That same feeling might also be triggered by other sights, sounds and scents that have left and indelible mark on memories of prior Myrtle Beach golf getaways. You remember the unmistakable aroma and taste of the Caledonia Clam Chowder you’ve always enjoyed at the turn.
You long for the “old school,” Scottish-themed greeting you get at Myrtle Beach’s oldest golf course, “The Granddaddy” at Pine Lakes Country Club, where your bags are loaded by staff clad in knickers and knee-high socks and your round kicked off by starters in kilts, button-down shirts and bowties.
And you never forget the awesome sight of a majestic Momma gator, and the chirping of her babies, as they chill along the banks of Lake Singleton while you navigate the awesome three-hole stretch of “Alligator Alley” at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club.
All this, and so much more, awaits your arrival for Myrtle Beach golf’s Second Season. Click here to explore the many options for making your next Grand Strand golf getaway one for the ages.
