The best thing about playing 18 holes of golf in Myrtle Beach is the abundance of 19th holes where you can throw back a few rounds after your round. No matter where or how you play, there’s a nice pub close by to celebrate a low score or drown your sorrows after a subpar performance. Here are 10 hot spots for golfers to grab a cold one:
Ailsa Pub: If you are playing a round at The Legends or any of the courses along the Highway 501 corridor, be sure to check out this Irish pub. Serving a nice selection of imported drafts and great food, Ailsa Pub offers a golf environment where the conversation revolves around chasing the little white ball.
Atlas Tap House: For golfers looking to experience Myrtle Beach off the course as well as on it, this downtown brew house provides the perfect transition from a day on the links and a night out on the town. Located near the heart of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, Atlas Tap House is a fun place to enjoy a few brews before taking in the sights and sounds of downtown.
Broadway at the Beach: For golfers looking for the ultimate Myrtle Beach nightlife experience, Broadway's Celebrity Square if the place to be. Featuring a dozen bars in one entertainment district, visitors can hit the dance clubs, sports bars, comedy clubs and music venues in one stop.
Bumstead's Pub: This popular English pub is only one block away from the heart of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk yet maintains a strong local crowd. Bra games like pool, darts and ping-pong are part of the attraction, and booths with built-in TV screens are perfect for a foursome to watch the big game.
Flynn's Irish Tavern: Located on Main Street in downtown North Myrtle Beach, this Irish pub once served as the city jail. Things are a bit livelier inside these days as the first generation family operation offers an authentic and friendly hangout for golfers.
Hooters: The man who made this national chain a widespread success was born and raised in nearby Longs. The late Bob Brooks left behind a legacy of chicken wings, cold beer, sports on TV and waitresses in skimpy outfits. Belly up to the bar or stick around for dinner.
Molly Darcy's: If you want an ocean view to go with your post-round brews, this Irish pub is located directly on the waterfront in North Myrtle Beach. A huge outdoor deck provides the ideal place to relax and listen to the waves, and the indoor section is warm and welcoming like a true neighborhood bar.
Pine Lakes Tavern: The oldest golf course in Myrtle Beach is just a short wedge shot away from one of the newest gastropub concepts on the Grand Strand. Serving a wide selection of draft and bottled beers, a unique menu and a patio deck overlooking Pine Lake, this place is a hot spot for golfers who play The Granddaddy.
Quigley's Pint & Plate: Pawleys Island's only brew pub and grill makes some outstanding in-house brews, as well as a nice selection of food. Sample some of Quigley's house beers and appetizers during one of the best happy hours on the Strand.
Tee'd Off Bar & Grill: Located in the Restaurant Row section of the Strand and close to Arcadian Shores, Waterway Hills and more courses, this bar and grill caters to golfers. Featuring golf simulators and putting greens, this is a nice place to brush up on both your golf and social games.
