If you’re one of the lucky patrons heading for The Masters (April 6 though 9) this spring, why not stretch your trip with a stop in America’s Seaside Golf Capital, Myrtle Beach? Even if you’re not heading for Augusta, this is one deal you’ll want to book now.
Imagine teeing it up on lush green fairways and feeling the soft grass under your shoes on the tee box. From April 3 through June 4, 2017, you can play three rounds of championship golf in the warm Carolina sun for as low as $178 when booked before 8 a.m. or after 1 p.m. We call it our Azalea Golf Package and it even has a bonus: the feel and taste of Augusta National. You’ll play among giant blooming azaleas. And you can enjoy our tribute to The Masters — that famous pimento cheese sandwich.
The Azalea Golf Package includes rounds of golf on Litchfield Country Club, Willbrook Plantation Golf Club and Tradition Golf Club courses in Pawleys Island, S.C. These three championship golf courses are some of the most beautiful along the Grand Strand during the spring with colorful azaleas and other flowering plants throughout.
“Myrtle Beach is the perfect stopping point for golfers going to or coming from The Masters,” said Steve Mays, director of marketing and sales for Founders Group International. “Our fairways are lush and our azaleas are huge, rivaling the beauty of those throughout Augusta. So a stop here is a great way to soak up The Masters spirit and enjoy an early spring vacation.”
Built on the site of a former rice plantation, Litchfield Country Club is filled with Southern charm. It’s the oldest course in the laid-back Litchfield/Pawleys Island area of the Grand Strand, having celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. Its majestic white-columned clubhouse features elegant stairways leading to a covered porch lined with rockers, and in spring, its walkways are ablaze with spectacular blooms on massive, decades-old azaleas. When you play Litchfield, remember this where you can pick up a pimento cheese sandwich and enjoy a taste of Augusta.
Consistently rated as one of the Myrtle Beach area’s most scenic golf courses, Willbrook Plantation features an abundance of waterfowl and other wildlife as its deep green fairways weave among centuries-old, moss-draped oaks and giant azaleas. Opened in 1988, its 18 holes are on historic rice planation land in use since the 1770s.
Tradition Golf Club was nominated for best New Public Course by Golf Digest when it opened 22 years ago. It has also been recognized as a South Carolina Golf Course of the Year. Accented by colorful azaleas and other blooming plants, Tradition offers a “Mega Practice Complex” that is the perfect place to warm up before a round or work on your game.
