My wife and I will be in Myrtle Beach dec 29 - jan 1. We are hoping the weather will be nice enough to play two rounds of golf, we are Canadian so we are use to playing in cool weather. Are there any courses that are in bad shape that we should avoid? Are there any good deals for this time of year or for over 55 golfers? Last year I played The Wizard, Tidewater and Davis Love course at Barefoot. They were all great courses but I would like to try something different this trip. We haven't booked a hotel yet so we would appreciate any suggestions.

I wish we had more people on this board who play golf. I know that Ron (Ichiban) has often said that he is happy with Ed's Golf.

Here's a popular golf forum:

I hope you'll hear from others!

Welcome to our board. We have several Canadian members here. I love them all because they NEVER complain about cold weather! :clown:

My husband and all his cronies play every July while we vacation. He said to check with The Legends and ask about their 3 round special that includes breakfast and lunch.

First question would be what area do you plan on staying in? Great courses all up and down the strand and really no reason to drive farther than necessary to play.

We always stay at Breakers Paradise Tower at 21st.... Ocean front, central location, and many places within walking distance... SOHO, Bummz, Dirty Don's, River City and many more.

Great courses within 10-20 minute drive and many others within 45 minutes.

If you're there for only 2 rounds then why not make them great rounds!

Grande Dunes - Resort course is really good but the Members course is GREAT!
Dunes - One of the best courses - PGA Senior open used to be held there

Both of the above about 10 minutes from the Hotel....

Want to drive 45 minutes and play a fun "beach" course? Head up to Oyster Bay...

Or out 501 to any of the Legends courses - or over to Arrowhead.... Or south to one of the most beautiful courses Caledonia....

These are just a few - there are too many to mention...

All course have 4-5 sets of tees so you can play whatever is comfortable...

Let us know what you end up doing!

If you decide to play Caledonia - make sure you bring a camera!

The Dunes is simply the best course on the Grand Strand, and the only one that actually has a view of the ocean. If there is one course that is can't-miss, it's the Dunes.

One of my favorites has always been Myrtlewood (the Palmetto Course). It's not considered one of the deluxe courses, but it just screams Myrtle Beach golf to me! The Palmetto course features a hole that follows the Intercoastal Waterway, and I just really enjoy the layout of the entire course.

The Litchfield Country Club is really nice, too. And if you end up that far south, you've also got Caledonia and True Blue (along with being near Murrel's Inlet and all of the great restaurants on the Marsh Walk).

Good luck and please post a trip report when you get back. I'm sure we'd all love to hear your views on the courses you've played.

I wish this forum had a "like" button because I would have us edit on WVParkfan.... :)
