The Insider’s Guide to Myrtle Beach Golf Vacations


myrtle-bookI received an email the other day that you may have received, too.

The subject was, “Incredible fall specials to Myrtle Beach, SC” and it was sent from one of the biggest names in the business.

Now, I know there are some excellent bargains to be had on Myrtle Beach Golf Vacations this fall, so that got me curious. 

I also know that, weather-wise, fall happens to be a great time for Myrtle Beach golf vacations. The average high temperature for September through November is at or above 70 degrees and average rainfall is at or below its lowest amount all year.

So, I clicked the link.  I was expecting to “learn more,” but I was simply taken to a page with row after row of Myrtle Beach golf vacation packages listing various places to play and stay. That was it.

No objective commentary on the courses. No unbiased reviews of the accommodations. The dining “guide” was merely an alphabetical list.

There was nothing to put things in perspective and truly help someone make sense of the overwhelming number of options in Myrtle Beach, a destination that every serious golfer should visit at least once.

I guess if you didn’t care about which golf courses you’d play on a Myrtle Beach golf vacation, and you were only interested in the lowest price, this website could be useful.

Or, if you were already an expert on Myrtle Beach golf vacations, like the editors of Golf Odyssey, you’d be able to look at the list and easily spot the truly “incredible” golf packages from the overpriced duds being sold to unsuspecting consumers.

If you’re interested in gaining this powerful perspective, too, I highly recommend reading our guidebook, Planning the Ultimate Myrtle Beach Golf Vacation.

You’re going to see a lot of offers for Myrtle Beach golf vacations online, on TV, and in magazines, and whether you’re considering a trip in the short or long term, this guidebook will be your best friend; it’s a much-needed advisor on a place that is delightfully “too much.”

Of course, you may already have experience with Myrtle Beach golf vacations. Are you confident that you have enough insider insight that you don’t need our guidebook? If you can answer these three simple questions, you’re probably right.

    I haven’t been to Myrtle Beach to play golf in several years. They have great venues to play, but without be a regular you may not get to play the best courses. I’ll be sure to get this guide for our next trip to Myrtle Beach.

    Thank you, David. Yes, it’s tough to know which places are truly special and which are just, “Ok.” Everybody is getting so good at marketing these days, the only way to really know is by staying and playing at the given properties. But who wants to spend a vacation doing due diligence at hit-or-miss properties? That’s the beauty of this guidebook — we’ve already scouted everything out without the properties knowing about it.
