Here’s How to Plan Your Grand Strand Family Golf and Beach Trip
There’s a science to planning a family golf outing, and it’s pretty simple. Especially if you’re eyeing Myrtle Beach, a haven for golf. And lots of other fun things to do.
Whether you’re hoping for 90% time on the course or a round or two on your stay, there are fun ways to map it out.
North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach are next to each other, but worlds apart. No matter where you set your sights, you’re in for a wonderful experience. Here’s how to get started.
Spring Means It’s Go-Time for a Family Golf Trip
1. What Else Do You Want to Do?
If your M-O is “eat, sleep, golf,” consider a resort with nice amenities, such as North Beach Resort & Villas. Want a spot in the middle of all the fun in Myrtle Beach? Try Caribbean Resort. It also has the acclaimed Mist Spa on-site to treat those aching muscles.
2. Go Best-In-Class as You Can Afford
Set a budget, and stick to it. That said, treat yourself as much as you can. Spring for the bigger room at The Atlantica Resort. If you’ve saved up enough to play a course you’ve always wanted to, such as The Dunes Golf and Beach Club, do it!
3. Know the Kid-Friendly Courses
Not all courses are for kids, and that’s fine — you’ve enjoyed rounds at this type of course. Myrtlewood Golf Club is a great place for children to play, and be sure to ask about them playing for free. You can play from different tees to keep things interesting, too, no matter where you play.
4. Plan Fun Golf Activities
If your family doesn’t love golf the way you do (yet), take them someplace fun, such as Top Golf. Take on a challenging round amid swashbucklers at Captain Hook’s Adventure Golf. Or buy a bucket of balls and hit the driving range together to get in the swing of it.
5. Plan Fun Non-Golf Activities, Too
It’d be a shame to not do all the fun stuff you come to the beach for! Here are a few suggestions the family might love:
- HORSEBACK RIDING: What a fun experience and incredible photo opportunity. Horseback Riding of Myrtle Beach can accommodate all skill levels.
- PIRATE-THEMED DINNER: Take your mateys to Drunken Jack’s on the Marshwalk. It’s not a proper beach trip without the freshest seafood in Murrells Inlet.
- A DINNER SHOW: Speaking of pirates … how about a trip to Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show? It’s great for all ages.
6. Save the Keepsakes
You could buy matching caps or shirts at the clubhouse store, or some other Myrtle Beach souvenir. That’s fine, but also definitely keep the scorecards. They’re a great way to remember a triple-bogey here or a surprise result there.
