While springtime tends to get the most ink as the ideal time to venture to Myrtle Beach for a golf vacation, many locals and perennial visitors alike will argue that the fall is the real prime season for Grand Strand golf. March and April high temperatures average about 64 and 72 degrees, respectively, while October and November clock in around 76 and 68 degrees, with similar (low) precipitation averages.
With that excellent fall weather comes the chance to save considerable money on a golf vacation. And those deals are not limited to just a few of the “value” courses—nearly any course visitors want to play, no matter the price range or location, can be booked at a reasonable price. Here is but a sampling of the great packages available this autumn.
This package, offered by local golf management company National Golf Management, which oversees 22 of the area’s courses, is an innovative and incredible way to get maximum bang for one’s golf vacation bucks. Each golfer who books a four-round itinerary at National Golf Management’s Prime Times Signature Courses receives a $100 Prime Times Rewards Card that can be put towards food, drink and golf merchandise at participating pro shops and on-course restaurants. Early Fall Prime Times Rewards packages can be booked for as little as $204 per player.
Just like the title says, arrange to play any three of Barefoot’s four award-winning golf courses and the fourth round is added for free. Players can take advantage of this package by staying for three nights either at Barefoot’s Oceanfront, Fairway Villas condos or any number of participating resorts.
The Legends Resort is known for providing one of the best all-inclusive value stay-and-golf experiences on the Grand Strand. In addition to the acclaimed on-property Heathland, Moorland and Parkland courses, golfers can tee it up at Oyster Bay Golf Links in Calabash, N.C. or the Heritage Club down in Pawleys Island. Once again, the package encompasses three nights’ stay at a number of MyrtleBeachHotels.com’s properties and three rounds of golf. Late fall packages begin at $249 per golfer.
This package allows golfers to save up to 25% off tee times at five distinguished Myrtle Beach courses: The Witch, The Wizard, Man O’War, Prestwick Country Club and Arrowhead golf club. These five courses represent the variety offered by playing golf in Myrtle Beach, from Prestwick’s Pete Dye-designed modernist challenge to Arrowhead’s more traditional design, courtesy of Tom Jackson and Raymond Floyd. Three-night, three-round packages start at the beginning of September from $204 per golfer.
