As we head into the heart of summer, golfers are playing in weekly leagues, weekend matches and any other time they can get to the course. While we all soak up the nice weather, the fall golf season is beginning to appear on the horizon, which means it’s time for you to start planning.
Planning already? That’s right. Now is the time and here are the reasons you must take a fall golf trip to Myrtle Beach:
1. Spring is understandably the area’s most popular season, but the fall weather is unbeatable. The South Carolina humidity fades and with average high temperatures of 83 in September, 75 in October and 67 in November there is no better time to be here. Seriously, it’s nearly perfect.
2. Due to the area’s subtropical climate, bermudagrass is the most common turf along the Grand Strand on tees, fairways and greens, and it thrives in South Carolina’s temperate weather, meaning you will be greeted by courses in outstanding condition.
3. If you can believe it, fall offers even more value than the peak spring season (though in fairness, Myrtle Beach is always chocked fall of value). The Rewards Package, which allows you to choose among Founders Group International’s 21 courses, includes a fourth night of lodging for free and a $100 gift card, good for use in the pro shop, the beverage cart and the clubhouse restaurant. Try to beat it.
4. The last 18 months have been difficult ones, so taking an additional chance to enjoy the game you love and time with friends is never a bad idea, and Myrtle Beach is the perfect place to do so.
5. Last but certainly not least, a fall trip will allow you to be the among the first to play the “new” Granddaddy. Pine Lakes Country Club (pictured right) closed in April for a greens and bunker restoration project that has substantially improved Myrtle Beach’s oldest layout and you will want to play it ASAP.
