For many avid golfers, there's nothing like a North Myrtle Beach golf course to cure the ills of everyday life. Especially for the New Englanders whose lives are a combination of gray skies, gray snow, gray hairs, and permanent mid-winter cabin fever between November and March, the Grand Strand is practically Mecca -- a religious experience. With 60 miles of beach and literally dozens of high-quality North Myrtle Beach golf courses located in the area, this little slice of South Carolinian heaven is full of surprises for even the most experienced golfer.
Whether it's your first visit to Myrtle Beach or you're an old hat at the Grand Strand, there are many golf course accommodations in the area that are simply must-plays. From a course in the southern historical district with greens designed by Jack Nicklaus and featuring "the shortest par five in America" to the only John Daly signature bunker free course in the United States, there is no shortage of killer finds on the search for a great North Myrtle Beach golf course.
Of course, the golf packages are only one part of the powerfully alluring vacation destination that is Myrtle Beach and it's satellites, North Myrtle Beach and Garden City. They are a perfect vacation destination whether you've come specifically for the perfect North Myrtle Beach golf course experience or you're equally interested in a more mainstream vacation.
The Grand Strand is home to tawny beaches, resorts with stunning ocean views, amusement parks, and superlative shopping opportunities, not to mention such a plethora of entertainment venues that you'll suffer more from indecision about what to go see than you will an entertainment deficit. Comedians, musicians, and variety shows adorn every weekend evening of the vacation season. Several massive shopping malls contrast in size, if not in fun level, with dozens of miniature golf courses that will challenge even those professionals who have mastered every hole of every North Myrtle Beach golf course.
And that's all just during the day. At night, Myrtle Beach turns into a playground of exotic fun-with nightclubs, dance halls, bars, and late-night shopping ready to tempt you at every turn. The only problem with Myrtle Beach nightlife is that it can steal the next morning away before you know it!
And of course, like any coastal vacation spot, the Beach in Myrtle Beach is worthy of its own vacation. Water sports from the relaxing and quirky -- like paddleboat rides and dolphin watching -- to the exhilarating and adrenaline pumping, like parasailing and scuba diving, are readily available for any beachcomber to enjoy. For the true multi-tasker, there is even one (miniature) North Myrtle Beach golf course that takes the fun direct into the sea as part of the course!
And, of course, when it comes to accommodations, North Myrtle Beach has some of the best. Whether your ideal room is nothing more than a place to throw your jacket while you're out enjoying the sun and sand, or you're looking to indulge yourself with top-tier room service and some quality pampering, you'll be able to book something in the Grand Strand to fit your tastes. So you see, a Grand Strand vacation has much more to offer than just the perfect North Myrtle Beach golf course -- come and check it out for yourself!
