Myrtle Beach Golf: what’s your type?

What type of golfer are you? Golfers can range from die-hards to people who just like to hit the golf ball around in the great outdoors for a couple of hours. Unlike other sports, there are endless types of golfers out there. Let’s take a look at some of the types of golfers and recommended courses for each to play. The amazing thing about Myrtle Beach is that with all of the golf courses in the area, there’s definitely something for everyone.

The avid golfer – this guy or girl lives, eats, sleeps, breathes and dreams golf. He knows which pro plays well in Scotland on cloudy days on the third Thursday in July. He knows how many dimples there are on a golf ball. He also knows how many golf balls he’s lost – in his entire life.

– Courses to play – Barefoot, Grand Dunes, Caledonia, True Blue

The once-a-year golfer – this golfer likes golf, but he doesn’t like it that much. While some golfers can’t go three days without golfing, this guy just likes to see the links once in a great while. Funny thing about it is he’s actually pretty good. After a few holes to warm up, he starts making pars left and right. You may start to get jealous. But don’t worry, you won’t see him on the course for another year!

– Courses to play – Blackmoor, Man O’ War

The drinker – there is no other way to describe this guy. The reason he comes to the course is to be out in the sun and have a beer or six during his round. It’s debatable whether his golf skill gets better or worse as the day progresses. But one thing is for sure, he usually has a good time.

– Courses to play – Wicked Stick Golf Club, Legends Golf

The family or senior golfer – these are the pure golfers. They like to get out on the course and have a good time. They may not be able to hit the ball as far as the pros, but they truly enjoy the game. Most families and senior golfers are looking to have a good time, without a ranger staring them down if they’re taking too long on a hole.

– Courses to play – Myrtle Beach National Southcreek, Possum Trot Golf Club

The weekend golfer – this guy golfs often, so he needs variety. He’s your regular golfer. He’s not obsessed with golf like the avid golfer, but he has a deep respect for the game. Because he golfs a lot he’s also likely looking for a deal.

-Courses to play – Tradition Golf Club, Myrtlewood Palmetto and Pine Hills, Willbrook Plantation

Do you fit within one of these golf categories? There are certainly other categories out there, but these are the main ones. The awesome thing about golf is that it accepts all types of golfers. Lucky for you, Myrtle Beach offers courses for everyone! Book your fall golf trip today:
