Named by Golf Digest “the Seaside Golf Capitol of America”, the Coastal Carolina Area offers some of the world’s finest courses. The mild climate, abundant water and varied terrain have enticed many of golf’s most famous course architects to the coast. Names like Palmer, Nicklaus, Fazio and Dye are just a few.
Myrtle Beach, S.C. is home to the “Grand Strand,” which spans from Brunswick County in North Carolina, to historic Georgetown to the south. Within this stretch of about 70 miles there are more than 100 golf courses, making Myrtle Beach one of the most golf-rich regions in the world.
It also ranks at the top in variety, garnering the nickname, the “supermarket of golf.” Myrtle Beach long ago shed its reputation as a bargain-basement destination and today there are more than a dozen ultra high-end courses ranging from $150-200 in the peak season – still a tremendous bargain versus most other destinations in the world.
Golf Digest has been especially kind to the Grand Strand, ranking 10 of its courses in its “Top 100 You Can Play” list, more than any other destination in America.
