Youve heard the monikers: Myrtle Beach is the GolfTown, USA, the Golf Capital of the World, or Where America Goes to Play.

Instead of asking you to mindlessly accept all this as fact, we are going to tell you why Myrtle Beach is, without question, Americas premier golf destination. (Aside from pointing out that the area was voted Best Golf Destination in a nationwide survey of USA Today and 10Best readers, of course)

  1. Some people get caught up in the total number of Myrtle Beach golf courses, but the areas greatest point of differentiation resides in the quality of its offerings. Myrtle Beach is home to nearly 100 layouts and more than 50 of them have earned at least four stars from Golf Digest. To put that number into perspective, Pinehurst has 29, Las Vegas 27 and San Diego 19.According to Golf Digest, the average course rating along the South Strand  4.5 stars – exceeds that of Hilton Head and Charleston. For the record, Hilton Head and Charleston average the same number of stars as the North and Central StrandsNeed more evidence?The Grand Strand has had 13 courses ranked among the nations top 100 public courses in recent years by either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine.The Dunes Club, Caledonia, True Blue, Kings North at Myrtle Beach National, TPC Myrtle Beach, the Love, Fazio and Dye Courses at Barefoot Resort, Rivers Edge, Tigers Eye, Grande Dunes, Tidewater and Heritage Club have all earned top 100 status.

    Let there be no doubt, Myrtle Beach offers more great golf than any other destination and there isnt a close second.

  2. Now that weve talked about quality, lets talk quantity because it greatly benefits the consumer. At the heart of the areas mass appeal is the fact Myrtle Beach delivers unrivaled value to groups across the golf travel spectrum.Looking for a trip that wont break the bank and includes good golf? This is your place. Similarly, if your group wants to play the best layouts America has to offer, the Grand Strand delivers on that account as well.To put the value a Myrtle Beach golf trip offers into perspective, according to a Golf Digest article, a round golf at a top 100 caliber course is 46 percent less expensive in Myrtle Beach than Pinehurst, its 30 percent cheaper than San Diego, and is half the price of a comparable round in Las Vegas.Myrtle Beach doesnt offer cheap golf. It has outstanding golf at a great value.
  3. Another reason the area is king has nothing to do with what happens on the course. For many, a golf vacation is about having a good time and bonding with boys, and the Grand Strand excels on that front as well. The restaurants and nightlife are unrivaled, and the Atlantic Ocean is, perhaps, most appealing of all. Myrtle Beach is a good times destination and that matters!
  4. The Grand Strand is the friendliest destination in golf. The game has a reputation for being, shall we say, elitist and its not altogether unwarranted. The stuffiness people associate with golf doesnt exist here. The entire community embraces golf and that in combination with native Southern charm, makes the Grand Strand the de facto home of public golf in America.
  5. The least discussed factor in Myrtle Beachs rise to the top of the golf travel market is location. Nestled in the northeast coast of South Carolina, the Grand Strand is within a days drive of nearly 70 percent of the entire U.S. population. The area is easily accessible from Interstate 95, and air service has greatly expanded in recent years. Myrtle Beach enjoys nonstop air service from more than 25 markets, including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.

And there you have it. It’s time for you to come see for yourself why Myrtle Beach is the best golf destination around.
