Swing Into Spring: 4 Reasons Why Myrtle Beach is a Great Spring Break Golf Destination

By Kris Hart, Nextgengolf

Nextgengolf has been hosting the Spring Break Open in Myrtle Beach over the last four years and has coined the Grand Strand as the “Official Spring Break Golf Destination.” Going to Myrtle Beach for a spring golf trip is awesome – both for college students, and and anyone looking to get away for a golf trip in March and April.

Here are four reasons why you should choose Myrtle Beach for your spring golf trip:

  • The courses – The greater Myrtle Beach area has more than 75 golf courses to choose from. You could take an annual trip for 25 years, play three rounds at different layouts, and not even get to play every course in that time. There are courses for all budgets and skill levels. My favorite courses are Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and the designs at Barefoot Resort & Golf. Each of these courses is well known and prominent in state and national rankings. Legends Golf Resort is also a great facility that includes three championship golf courses in one stellar location that also plays host to our annual Spring Break Open.
  • The weather – Coming from Boston, anything above 45 degrees will do in the spring. The nice thing about Myrtle Beach is the climate is a little cooler than other areas of the country like Arizona or Florida, and you will tend not to sweat on the course. I really enjoy 65-degree weather for golf and can wear pants on the course and feel very comfortable. Spring may be a little cold for beach weather, but it’s perfect for golf!
  • The price – If you’re looking for a spring golf trip, Myrtle Beach has some of the best value golf packages you could ask for. I’ve taken a number of trips to the Grand Strand and keep coming back because you cannot find a better value for a golf destination. If you’re going any time now through March there are some amazing golf packages and discounts available, especially for larger groups. Check out some of these spring golf specials.
  • The entertainment – Beyond fantastic golf Myrtle Beach has a wide-range of entertainment choices, ranging from a vibrant nightlife scene to plenty of family-friendly options. I am a big fan of Broadway at the Beach as well as Barefoot Landing; though they’re in distinctly different locations along the Grand Strand, each offers its own unique variety of bars, restaurants, and entertainment.

Although I only highlighted four awesome reasons why Myrtle Beach is a great spring break golf destination, the parties, beaches, and fun for those non-golfers are a significant draw to the area as well. The Spring Break Open is in its fourth year for Nextgengolf, and we look forward to coming back for years to come!
