Swing into Spring: Benefits of Springtime Golf Make for “Perfect” Trip to Myrtle Beach

Tidewater 12 lo res

For those who live in colder areas of the United States, golf in the early springtime is something that can only be dreamt of. So, are you sick and tired of dreaming? Are you ready to escape the cold? Well then pack your clubs and head south. Things are really heating up here in Myrtle Beach.

According to Heather Royer, Golf Sales Manager for Condo-World, spring is the premier time of year to come to Myrtle Beach for a golf getaway.

“It’s 72 and sunny,” said Royer on a recent, sun-splashed day on the Grand Strand. “The forecast is expected to be the same. Conditions are perfect. It’s a perfect day to play.”

With local courses taking significant measures to ensure the quality of conditions for 2019, golf in Myrtle Beach is set for a great spring.

“Greens will be perfect. Conditions will be perfect,” says Royer.

When you visit Myrtle Beach in the springtime, course conditions are lusher as compared to the summertime, when things tend to be on the drier side, or the wintertime, when many grasses become dormant. Bermuda and bent grass are used for the vast majority of greens in Myrtle Beach and thrive during the peak spring months. Simply put, the ball rolls truer in Myrtle Beach because, come springtime, the grass is simply better.

Let’s also not forget that, come spring, Myrtle Beach’s social schedule picks up, with a variety of different concert and community events, as well as action at Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, and down on the boardwalk.

No matter where you are travelling from, MBGolf.com and Condo-World have the perfect stay-and-play package to help you and your group escape the cold. So, leave your pants and jackets at home. It’s time to get out and enjoy the sunshine!

Course Spotlight: Pawleys Plantation

Pawleys Plantation 13 lo res

Carved from natural marshland and woven around centuries-old live oaks draped in moss sits the signature Jack Nicklaus design, Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club.

Having just recently celebrated its 30th anniversary and a visit from the Golden Bear himself, there’s never been a better time to visit Pawleys Plantation.

The timeless par-72 layout flirts with scenic saltwater marshes that separate the course from the Atlantic Ocean, making for a breathtaking round of golf. The course stretches to 7,031 yards from the tips, or the “Golden Bear” tees, and 4,932 from the forward tees to ensure there is a comfortable yardage for every level of golfer.

One of the most notable holes at Pawleys Plantation is the 13th. Relatively sound conditions and tree-lined fairways on previous holes strikingly contrast with the setup on this daunting par 3. Tee boxes surrounded by marshland and a peninsula green across the hazard may have you leaving this hole a few more strokes over par than you anticipated. But we think the view will make up for it.

Pawleys Plantation has been named one of South Carolina’s Top 50 Courses and one of the Top 10 Courses in Myrtle Beach by the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel. The course, along with the 13th Hole, was also featured on Golf Channel’s “Big Break Myrtle Beach” in 2014 and has continued to receive national notoriety.

The Golden Bear surely outdid himself with the design at Pawleys Plantation, and it’s no wonder players continue to return to the course year after year. To play this gem on your next golf vacation to Myrtle Beach, call one of our friendly golf specialists at 800.422.1587 who can get your planning started!

Course Spotlight: International World Tour Golf Links

World Tour Open 09

Here’s a riddle for you. How do you travel to nine different states and two countries including Canada and Scotland, all without leaving the city limits of Myrtle Beach? The answer is International World Tour Golf Links.

This par-72 course features replica holes from some of the nation’s top-ranked courses as well as some further from home. With the opportunity to play the same holes as some of the greats, it goes without saying that few experiences exceed the one awaiting you at World Tour Golf Links.

The front nine at World Tour, referred to as the Open Nine, includes spectacular golf holes from courses that have hosted either a U.S. or British Open. One of the highlights of the Open Nine is the par-3 3rd Hole that resembles the 17th Hole at the Stadium Course of TPC Sawgrass. Although the hole may seem easy from the comfort of your own living room when watching players dunk it in the surrounding hazard, you may have a different reaction after stepping up to the tee box for yourself. The final hole on the Open Nine is a tribute to the 18th at St. Andrews. It features a replica of the Swilcan Bridge and the infamous “Valley of Sin” that guards the green.

The back nine at World Tour includes holes synonymous with all four of the men’s major championships. Although each hole is outstanding in its own right, it’s awfully difficult not to be blown away by Myrtle Beach’s very own Amen Corner. A trio of holes on the Championship Nine pay tribute to the 11th, 12th and 13th Holes at Augusta National. The only things missing are the abundant azaleas and Tiger Woods!

After your round, be sure to stop by the Player’s Grille for the club’s delicious Reuben sandwiches or dine outside on the veranda overlooking the final hole of the Championship Nine, inspired by the 11th Hole at Bay Hill.

Among a number of accolades, World Tour has most notably been awarded the “National Golf Course of the Year” by Golf Digest in 2008 and has been named the “Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year” by the National Golf Course Owners Association.

The design of World Tour seamlessly brings together some of the world’s most outstanding holes. Although each is a replica, the experience of playing a round at World Tour is completely original.

Take the Fast Lane to Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Whisky River!

Dale Jr.'s Whisky River in North Myrtle Beach

North Myrtle Beach residents said goodbye to Overtime Sports Cafe in early 2018 and have officially welcomed Dale Jr.’s Whisky River in its place. The new sports bar and restaurant, owned by NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr., is just one of four locations in the entire Carolinas. Since opening its doors approximately seven months ago, the restaurant has experienced nothing but success.

The Whisky River menu offers a wide variety of appetizers, burgers, wings, ribs, sandwiches, salmon and chicken entrees as well an array of salads for those looking for a more wholesome meal. And don’t forget to check out their delicious dessert menu too!

The menu also features an extensive selection of bottled and draft beers, cocktails and wine. Arguably the most enticing thing about the bar, though, is its unbeatable happy hour. Everyday from 4-7 p.m., Whisky River serves $5 fried pickles, nachos, cheese quesadillas, chicken tenders, and buffalo popcorn shrimp. In addition, they offer $3 house wines per glass and $2.50 daily draft specials.

Cowhide upholstery and rustic, Western elements make for a fun and relaxed atmosphere. But what’s an authentic sports bar without a mechanical bull? That’s right, they’ve got that, too! Whisky River also features a stage for live music and DJs to cement its place in the nightlife scene. And you’re never too far from the racetrack or the field thanks to dozens of televisions surrounding the bar area and scattered throughout the restaurant.

Whisky River’s location also places it just blocks from the ocean and near a number of outstanding nearby golf courses. Its delicious food, tasty drinks, and undeniable entertainment have made Whisky River a popular 19th Hole destination among locals and tourists alike. It’s the perfect post-round spot to include on your next golf trip!

Course Spotlight: Tidewater Golf Club

Tidewater 12 (1)

Between the Intracoastal Waterway and the saltwater marshes of the Carolina coast sits Tidewater Golf Club, one of the area’s most sought after golf destinations.

The course itself, just a short drive north from downtown Myrtle Beach, feels a world away from the busy city.

Designed by Ken Tomlinson, this par 72 layout weaves its way through the natural Lowcountry landscape to make for a truly special round of golf. Featuring views of the Cherry Grove Marsh and glimpses of the Atlantic Ocean, courses like Tidewater are few and far between.

Upon its opening in 1990, the course was recognized by both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine as the “Best New Course” and remains the only course to have received the award by both publications. However, these were just the first of 40 more awards that Tidewater would receive over the next two decades.

One glance at the coastal views accompanying nine different holes at Tidewater and you’ll quickly understand why the course has been deemed “The Pebble Beach of the East.”

The first of multiple memorable holes is the par-3 No. 3 that overlooks the inlet. A prevalent ocean wind and threatening hazard leave many risk-reward opportunities, a common theme throughout the remainder of the course.

But Tidewater’s signature hole is the par-3 12th, appropriately named “The Wishing Well.” Saltwater marsh and strategic bunkering guard most of the green, so an accurate tee shot is crucial. The thousands of golf balls embedded into the marsh mud are the most accurate testimony to the true difficulty of the hole.

Equally as impressive as the holes featuring the coastal marshes and waterways are those set up among tree-lined fairways. It offers a break from the sea breezes and allows for more accessible birdie opportunities.

To play this course and other outstanding layouts, check out our Beach’s Best Package and The Elite Package. To learn more about Tidewater Golf Club, click here or call 800.422.1587 today!

Topgolf Coming to Myrtle Beach in Early 2019

Greg Norman says it’s “just what golf needs.”

The brand itself proudly proclaims that “it doesn’t matter who you are. If you play, you’ve never experienced anything like this.”

And major markets across the country have already embraced the concept, including Phoenix, Las Vegas, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Nashville, Dallas and Houston. So will Chicago, the Beltway, Monterrey in Mexico and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in the coming weeks and months.

Now, Topgolf is coming to Myrtle Beach in early 2019 – and bringing with it all the entertainment bells and whistles that have made it a pop culture phenomenon.

Topgolf offers golf as the platform for a one-of-a-kind leisure experience. The new Myrtle Beach location, located off 29th Avenue North and Grissom Parkway, will roll out a high-tech golf game as part of an entertainment complex that pairs with a full-service restaurant and bars, climate-controlled hitting bays, music, hundreds of HDTVs and even a rooftop terrace with a fire pit.

Topgolf is perfectly suited for group gatherings large or small, and offers private event spaces and meeting rooms to accommodate a wide array of business and social interests. And as you prepare for your first evening out at Topgolf Myrtle Beach, remember: pricing is determined by hitting bay use per hour, not by person. So the more friends, family and associates you can bring along to enjoy the fun, the more bang for your entertainment buck you’ll get.

A lifetime membership is available for a one-time charge of $5, and with it comes free club rentals, access to play Topgolf’s signature games at any of its worldwide venues, and the ability to track the points you score by hitting balls into the targets. Additional membership opportunities will soon be available for unlimited game play among other benefits.

Make Your Spring Golf Vacation Majestically Mystical

Dan Maples outdid himself with each of his three designs available on our Mystical 3-Round Package. Between The Witch, The Wizard and Man O’War, Maples offers distinct yet compelling takes on course design while ensuring a quality experience throughout.

One factor that sets this trio of award-winning designs apart from the rest is in Mystical Golf’s commitment to presenting its visiting golfers with year-round, lush green playing conditions. While most Grand Strand designs overseed their primary playing surfaces (tee boxes and fairways) during the winter months, Mystical Golf has done so in “wall to wall” fashion by extending the practice to all playing areas of each golf course (with the sole exception of the bentgrass greens at The Wizard and Man O’War, which don’t require winter overseeding as they maintain their premium playing conditions in the cooler months).

And for our friends arriving from colder climates that have already been blanketed with plenty of white stuff, the sight of emerald green grass greeting their arrival – no matter what time of year they arrive – will be just what the doctor ordered!

In addition to an exceptional golfing experience, each round on the Mystical Package includes lunch and two beers for each person in your group at the golf course you’re playing that day. If you need lodging, accommodations options range from premium oceanfront condos to golf course lodging to executive beach homes. From Barefoot Resort and North Beach Plantation along the North Strand to Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort in Pawleys Island, the lodging choices along the Grand Strand’s 60-mile stretch of sandy beaches are plentiful.

Our friendly golf vacation experts are ready and waiting to help get your spring trip planning in high gear. You can get started by filling out a Quick Quote, or giving us a call at 800-422-1587. We can’t wait to see you!
