Featuring more than 80 championship golf courses on the Grand Strand and countless off-the-course activities for a complete vacation experience, Myrtle Beach provides the perfect family-friendly environment for a memorable beach retreat. Golf by day, play by night, and do it all over again the next day.
Between parents and their work and children with school, it’s tough to find time for a family links vacation, but the summertime is prime time to take one. Wedged between the more popular spring and fall golf seasons, the summer months provide great opportunities for savings and fun off the course.

Kids Play Free: That’s right, we said FREE! More than 50 Grand Strand area golf courses allow children 16 and under to play free with a paid adult. That list includes Aberdeen Country Club, Arcadian Shores (Charges Junior Golfers in the AM, however Juniors are Free in the PM), Arrowhead, Blackmoor, Carolina National, Crow Creek, Crown Park, Diamondback, Glen Dornoch, Grande Dunes, International Club, Litchfield Country Club, Long Bay, Myrtle Beach National (Kings North and South Creek), Myrtlewood (Pine Hills), Pawleys Plantation, Pine Lakes International, Possum Trot, River Club, River Hills, River Oaks, Rivers Edge, Sandpiper Bay, Sea Trail (Byrd), Shaftesbury Glen, Thistle, Tidewater, TPC Myrtle Beach, Tradition Club, Wachesaw East, Wild Wing (Avocet), and World Tour.

Stay & Play: Myrtle Beach Golf’s wide selection of golf packages allows families to tee it up at some of Myrtle Beach’s top courses while also shacking up at many of the area’s top family resorts, earning discounts on both. So before and after your daily rounds, your family can get a good night’s sleep on the oceanfront and soak up all the amenities, like on-site water slides, swimming pools, lazy rivers and hot tubs. The Brittain Resort’s family of oceanfront vacation resorts, including Bayview Resort, Breakers Resort, Caribbean Resort & Villas, Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort, Dayton House, Long Bay Resort, North Beach Plantation, Ocean Reef Resort, Paradise Resort and The Strand, offer first-class accommodations, amenities, on-site dining and more for some memorable moments away from the course. Families can also find great deals at golf resorts like Barefoot Golf Resort, Myrtle Beach Plantation and River Oaks Golf Resort.
Off-Course Action: Talking the kids into a golf vacation might involve a little, well, let’s just call it what it is – bribery. They may roll their eyes at the idea of spending their vacation on the links, but throw in a day at the water park, a night at the laser tag arena, and you might have a deal. Myrtle Beach offers a wealth of family vacation activities, including free fireworks shows, festivals and concerts during the summer months. Amusement parks, thrill rides and other attractions provide lots of opportunities for fun off the course. Guests at the aforementioned Brittain Resorts can cash in on Brittain Rewards, a free program that gives families one free pass to some of the hottest spots in town. This summer, that list includes the Myrtle Waves and Wild Water & Wheels water parks, Brookgreen Gardens, Fun Warehouse, Medieval Times and various miniature golf courses in town. Take a swing at the new TopGolf for even more fun and games.
One final tip for family golf vacations: Book early for the best deals on tee times and accommodations. Check Myrtle Beach Golf’s rates and dates and get ready for a memorable family golf retreat. Who knows, it might even become a family tradition.
