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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 »
