Myrtle Beach has grown from a sleepy beach community into a golf Mecca. The area is home to 100+ courses, including 13 that have recently been ranked among America’s Top 100 public courses by either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine, and with those numbers comes the versatility that sets Myrtle Beach apart from competing destinations.

What people generally refer to as...

What people generally refer to as Myrtle Beach is actually a 60-mile stretch of Carolinas coastline that runs from Georgetown, S.C. to Brunswick County, N.C. The Grand Strand, as the area is often referred to, offers different experiences based on geography but golf is the constant.

The Central Strand – i.e. Myrtle Beach proper – is the epic center. Great golf, restaurants and nightlife are on nearly every corner. Staying in the heart of Myrtle Beach and partaking in all it offers is practically a rite of passage for traveling golfers. It’s also an ideal landing spot for new visitors because it provides easy access to everything the area has to offer.   

The North and South strands offer different but no less appealing choices.

Set amidst the charms of lowcountry South Carolina, a trip to the South Strand offers a relaxing alternative to up-tempo environment of Myrtle Beach. The area is quaint, featuring restaurants, stunning views of the marsh (a trip to the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk is a must), and best of all, some of the nation’s best golf.

From TPC Myrtle Beach to layouts like Caledonia, True Blue, Pawleys Plantation and Heritage Club, the South Strand is home to one of America’s best cluster of courses.

The North Strand offers a combination of the best the area has to offer. There are 35 golf courses on the north end of town, 21 of which have earned at least 4 stars from Golf Digest. The mixture of great golf, value and the choice between enjoying the revelry of North Myrtle Beach or the serenity of Brunswick County has made the North Strand an increasingly popular landing spot.

Regardless of which end of the Strand a group stays on, Myrtle Beach can deliver a different and equally appealing experience year after year.

From Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods, who called Myrtle Beach the “golf mecca of the world,” golf’s royalty have all left their mark on the area in one way or another.
