Shake Off the Winter Blues and Save by Booking Golf in January

Most of the country is deep into the chill of winter. What's the best way for snow-bound and ice-weary golfers to shake off the bad weather, winter blues? Think spring — and start planning a spring golf trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C. Book during January and your spring golf rounds in America's Seaside Golf Capital will cost you less.

It's a case of simple supply and demand. When temperatures rise along the South Carolina coast, tee time prices go up as well. But if you plan ahead and book your spring rounds during the month of January, you and your group can reap big savings.

“There's no better way to beat the winter blues than to plan and book a spring golf vacation in Myrtle Beach,” said Steve Mays, director of marketing and sales for Founders Group International, owner of Myrtle Beach Golf Trips. “Looking forward to playing in short sleeves  in just a few weeks should help anyone get through the chilliest stretch of snow days. So stop dreaming and contact Myrtle Beach Golf Trips. We're a one-stop-shop for finding the best deals and courses for golfers of any skill level and budget.”

Check out the popular Prime Times Rewards Package which offers golf on some of the area's most storied courses, a $100 gift card for each golfer in a group that books four or more rounds, and a $15 gift certificate for each golfer for dining. Talk about value! Choose from great layouts that are among Myrtle Beach's top 10 courses. These “Best of the Best” include  Grande Dunes Resort Club, TPC Myrtle Beach, King's North at Myrtle Beach National, and World Tour Golf Links. The package starts at $361 for four rounds and those who book early can reap significant savings.

Imagine shaking off the chill of winter by walking the lush green fairways of TPC Myrtle Beach, once the site of the Senior PGA Championship. Get ready to toss aside your jacket at Grande Dunes and enjoy spectacular views of the Intracoastal Waterway and the warm ocean breezes coming off the Gulf Stream. Experience the unforgettable par 5 known as "The Gambler” at the Arnold Palmer-designed King's North — just one of the holes that prompted prestigious national ratings panels to call King's North “one of America's 100 Greatest Public Courses.” Or challenge some of the most renowned holes in golf at World Tour Golf Links where tributes to Augusta National's "Amen Corner" and the Sawgrass #17 island green are masterfully combined with 16 other tribute holes to create a spectacular layout.

And the deals just keep coming. Check out the opportunity to score a free round at Barefoot Resort & Golf where Fazio, Dye, Love and Norman have etched signature courses into the Carolina soil.  Book three spring rounds at Barefoot and get a fourth round free under the Play 3, Get 1 Free offer this winter.

Even if you can only spare a couple days for a short time in the warm Carolina sunshine, Myrtle Beach Golf Trips can link you up with some single-round spring deals this January. The Founders Collection of 22 courses is offering rates starting at $37 for rounds booked between February 9 and March 1.

Founders' courses include popular layouts like Myrtlewood Golf Club, home of the Palmetto course, one of the top repeat-play courses along the Grand Strand. History is all throughout the clubhouse and grounds of Pine Lakes Country Club, known as “The Granddaddy” of Myrtle Beach golf and home to Sports Illustrated magazine. From North Myrtle Beach to Pawleys Island, the choices are vast with tee times available at a variety of courses that have been praised by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and other national media.

Looking for the ultimate in laid-back golf experiences? Check out the spectacularly beautiful Lowcountry tucked between the Waccamaw River and Atlantic Ocean just 30 miles south of Myrtle Beach. For a limited time, Myrtle Beach Golf Trips is offering great deals on playing two rounds on the award-winning Waccamaw Golf Trail. In the charming Pawleys Island area at the southern end of the Grand Strand, tee times start at $42 per golfer per day. Most of the 11 Lowcountry courses in this area were built on 18th and 19th century rice and indigo plantations and feature ancient moss-draped live oaks and breathtaking water views. This is the place to find Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, rated one of the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play in America” by Golf Magazine and “100 Greatest Public Courses in America” by Golf Digest. It's where Jack Nicklaus built his challenging 18 hole signature course, Pawleys Planation, on a site that looks out over the tidal salt marsh and island beyond. And the true Southern charm of the antebellum South is just part of the experience at The Heritage Club where more than 600 acres of giant magnolias dot the landscape overlooking the Waccamaw River.
