Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
According to Chris King, communications manager for Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday, nearly every prominent golf architect in the past 50 years has a course in and near Myrtle Beach. “It’s a who’s who of golf courses offering the most diverse experiences in the world,” said King.
King said that more than 100 golf courses are spread along a 60-mile stretch of South Carolina coastline.
“I represent the marketing group that is the conduit between golf courses and the packages they provide. There are over 80 participating courses, and we make it easy to book and plan getaways. The golf package was born here, and we perfected it,” he said.
Lodging and golf are standard with Golf Holiday, and other incentives can include breakfast, lunch and gift cards. Packages range from value trips to luxury golf options.
“Another bonus is that we are a beach community where people can see the ocean and put their toes in the sand,” said King. “Groups have as much fun off the course as they do on.”
