Continue reading to find out where to find a few of our favorite golf courses!

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club | Pawleys Island, SC

Nestled between Myrtle Beach and Georgetown, we find one of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses (Golf Digest). Caledonia Golf & Fish Club is a 6,526 yard, par-70 course that offers a world-class experience as soon as you walk into the clubhouse. The Instagram-worthy 18th hole borders the Plantation’s old rice field and will need to be played with precision. Keep an eye out for golfers who just finished perched in rocking chairs observing from the clubhouse. Be sure to check out the video below to see what we mean.

True Blue Golf Club | Pawleys Island, SC

Our next course is also found in Pawleys Island. Who would have though that the South Strand had so many high end courses! Ranked in Golf Magazine’s ‘Top Courses You Can Play’ list in 2016, True Blue offers golfers a fun, dramatic layout. Kick off your experience by warming up on the 18-acre practice facility with a fully-stocked pro shop. Prepare to be challenged by the impressive elevation changes and fast greens. Watch the video below to see what True Blue Golf Club is all about.

Myrtle Beach Golf Vacations: Stay & Play In Murrells Inlet

As Labor Day draws near, it marks the unofficial end of the summer season. Sure, we will still have nice, warm weather for another month or so, but fall is getting closer and closer. You may have already started to notice pumpkin-flavored adult beverages hitting your local cooler. There’s no fighting fall, so why not embrace it?

Aside from the return of both college and professional football (yay!), fall is the perfect time of year to hit the links! If you booked one of our Myrtle Beach golf vacations, then you are in for a treat. Below is a bit about a few of the golf courses which we include in our fall golf packages:

TPC Myrtle Beach

TPC Myrtle Beach’s very challenging 18-hole, 72 par PGA Tour-caliber course features elevation changes, undulating greens, and Tour-quality bunkers. It is a course designed to treat golfers to the experience of what it must be like to be a PGA Touring professional.

Tom Fazio designed the course with the intention of ranking it among the nation’s finest. When TPC Myrtle Beach opened to rave reviews on February 2, 1999, many of golf’s most respected sources pronounced it an instant classic.

Founders Club

Located in quaint, quiet Pawleys Island, America’s oldest seaside resort, the Founders Club at Pawleys Island immediately impresses you with the striking beauty of the 9th hole, the first hole you see as you enter the golf club. A beautiful, well-laid-out hole, it makes a strong statement and sparks the most comments from visitors. And it sets the tone for what is to come.

The Founders Club at Pawleys Island earned distinction as Myrtle Beach Golf Course of the Year in 2011 by the Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association. In both 2009 and 2011, the Founders Club was deemed one of the 30 Best Courses You can Play in South Carolina by the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel.


Blackmoor Golf Club, located in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina has remained one of the Grand Strand’s most player-friendly golf course rounds. The design is one that stretches the imagination – almost begging for the untraditional at times. That has been packaged with a playing surface that can only be described as upper-echelon. It leaves those who set foot on this 18-hole masterpiece in awe of what they’ve just experienced.

Of course, we book golf packages for several other courses along the Grand Strand, but we just wanted to give you a taste of what to expect. It’s not too late to book your fall golf vacation, so if you are interested in learning more about what we have to offer, please view our golf specials here »

3 Big Reasons Why November is Ideal for Myrtle Beach Golf

When it comes to golf, most people think of Spring and Fall. While Spring weather can be beautiful in the Myrtle Beach area, it can also be unpredictable. And while the earlier part of Fall is also a great time of year, it still lingers as a busy time through parts of October. The later part of Fall can be one of the best times of the year to enjoy one of the many Myrtle Beach golf courses. While November is revving up to be crisp and cool across the country, it’s generally one of the most pleasant and affordable times of the year to enjoy the finest golf packages Myrtle Beach has to offer. Continue reading to find out why now is the time to book your Myrtle Beach golf trip and how Inlet Sports Lodge, a luxury hotel in Murrells Inlet, can help!

  1. Weather is Ideal

When it comes to November, most people don’t think of it as the month to venture on vacation, especially to the beach. But if dipping in the ocean isn’t your top priority, the weather in Myrtle Beach is still prime for golf. Temps average in the 60’s with many days still in the low 70’s and precipitation tends to run a little less likely compared to the rainy Spring months when golf is still at its peak. Most importantly, the east coast is finally out of the peak of hurricane season. Naturally as the end of November approaches temperatures can begin to dip down to some cooler temps, but still remain fairly mild compared to winters in the Northern US and it is still a beautiful time of year to enjoy the Grand Strand, even outside of the golf world.

  1. Accommodations Rates are at Some of the LOWEST of the Year

In addition to enjoying what is considered Spring like weather in the earlier part of November, you can also get some of the best deals on golf and rooms during this time of year. As the Myrtle beach area gears away from peak season, accommodation rates are usually at some of their lowest of the year. Rates at the Inlet Sports Lodge drop down to $109 before taxes and fees as early as mid-October, and continue at that rate through the end of the year. Not to mention for affiliated courses Caledonia & True Blue, affiliated partners, you can score rounds for packages at top courses a bit cheaper than you would in the Spring. The Lowcountry Luxury package for example, offers 2 Nights & 2 Rounds as low as $389 per person beginning October 23rd.

  1. Beat the Crowds

Although Murrells Inlet tends to boast less traffic overall than Myrtle Beach, the impact of the off-season is felt even greater beginning the month of November. If crowds aren’t your thing, you definitely will want to be at the beach during this time of the year. You can enjoy all the same amenities including all the top-rated dining in the area only with less traffic and crowds to compete with. Not to mention…if you have a preference for your tee times, you can have an easier time teeing off at your favored time of day when it’s not as busy.

In case you needed any other reason to visit us for your November Golf trip, give yourself a break before the Holiday Season. Afterall, when will you be able to get away for a golf vacation next? There’s no better time than November for Fall Golf in Myrtle Beach. View our Myrtle Beach golf packages here »
