There’s never been a better time to take that bucket-list golf getaway, and Myrtle Beach is primed and ready to welcome you to “The Golf Capital of the World.” If you’re looking for added inspiration, we’re here with the top 10 reasons why the Grand Strand is golf’s best vacation destination!

1. “It’s the Golf, Stupid”

It’s a golf trip we’re talking about, and no destination can match the number and quality of courses offered along the Grand Strand. More than 50 area layouts have earned a 4-star designation from Golf Digest and 14 have been ranked among America’s Top 100 public courses in recent years. If that’s not enough, readers of USA Today and 10Best voted Myrtle Beach “Best Golf Destination.”

2. Everybody Loves a Good Bargain

Everyone wants to maximize value, and no one does it better than Myrtle Beach. The area has the ability to accommodate just about any golf trip budget. The chance to get away, play golf and blow off a little steam can be therapeutic, especially after a long hard winter, and Myrtle Beach makes it possible for everyone.

3. If You Can’t Have a Good Time Here …

Unlike some other destinations that roll up the sidewalks at sun down, Myrtle Beach is almost as much fun off the course as it is on. Whether it’s shopping, dining or a night out with the boys, it’s hard not to have fun in Myrtle Beach.

4. Golf Equipment

The Grand Strand is home to some of the game’s best retail stores and club fitting options. PGA TOUR Superstore even boasts two locations along the Grand Strand, and can help you find nearly every golf-related item imaginable. It’s like putting a kid in a candy store.

5. Everyone is Welcome

Face it: rightly or wrongly, golf is perceived as an elitist sport. In Myrtle Beach, nothing could be further from the truth. From blue collar to white collar and between men and women, young and old, Myrtle Beach welcomes everyone with open arms more than any golf vacation destination you’ll find anywhere.

6. Local Knowledge

Myrtle Beach golf package providers are intimately familiar with the market. They live and play golf along the Grand Strand, and are in constant contact with area courses. As a result, they will tailor a trip to meet the unique needs of your group. Their expertise will help make your trip better. Free, custom golf quotes are available with EZ Golf Quotes. A package provider will review what you’re looking for and send a quote with no obligation.

7. Size Doesn’t Matter

Some folks think they need a large group to take a buddy trip – and that’s simply not true. Whether it’s just you and a friend or a group of 60, Myrtle Beach willingly accommodates golf trips of all sizes.

8. Back to School

Are you new to the game or struggling rediscover your swing? There is no better place for golf instruction than Myrtle Beach. Classic Swing Golf School, Dustin Johnson Golf School, Steve Dresser Golf Academy and the Coastal Golf Academy are awesome options for helping your game.

9. Step on a Pop Top

In addition to the obvious golf-related benefits of a trip to Myrtle Beach, there is also an intangible factor that shouldn’t be overlooked – the Atlantic Ocean. The sound of the crashing waves, the Lowcountry coastal setting, and the laid-back environment of the South combine to make the perfect backdrop for a buddies trip.

10. By Air and Land

Myrtle Beach is within  a day’s drive of every major metro area on the Eastern seaboard, and the area enjoys non-stop flight service from New York, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Toronto, Fort Lauderdale, Washington, D.C., Atlantic City and Pittsburgh, among others. And with Southwest this year joining a growing fleet of major air service providers at Myrtle Beach International Airport, getting here has never been easier.
