Create Family Fun and Memories with Kids Play Free Golf in Myrtle Beach

Now beach time isn’t the only outdoor family time when vacationers visit Myrtle Beach. When looking for activities in addition to the ocean, hit the links for Kids Play Free golf at some of the top courses in the golf capital of the world. Nearly 50 courses in the Grand Strand area offer free golf for junior golfers (16 and under) when paired with a paying adult. Not only is this a great opportunity to get your family onto some amazing golf courses, it’s also one way to help save the game of golf for the next generation.

There’s been much debate of late regarding the health of the golf industry, the popularity of the game and ways to get more golfers onto the course. A number of ideas have been presented, and they range from interesting to quite radical. Some people view foot golf – players kick a soccer ball down the course and into a larger hole – as a way to get more kids onto the golf course. Others have experimented with bike golf as a quicker, more physically challenging way to complete 18 holes. Instead of walking or using carts, players strap their bags to their back and bike the course. Classic and yet extreme at the same time, some courses have even tested increasing the size of the hole to make the game easier.

Time will tell whether any of these measures increase golf’s appeal, and I applaud the creativity, but the traditionalist in me says in order to grow the game it starts with kids and getting kids to enjoy golf.

There’s no better place to fall in love with the game than one of the most popular vacation and golf destinations on the planet.
