The All-Inclusive package, an offer from Founders Group International, allows players to choose among 21 courses and includes lunch, range balls and two draft beers. It’s Myrtle Beach’s most popular golf package, especially for groups looking to maximize value.
But value extends beyond price, and for players that have the ability to throw the budget to the wind in their pursuit of playing great golf courses, the All-Inclusive offers the opportunity to play four of Myrtle Beach’s top 11 layouts on one trip.
If you want to tee it up on the best of the best while enjoying the value provided by the All-Inclusive deal, here is your dream four-course itinerary:
● Dustin Johnson’s former home course, TPC Myrtle Beach (ranked No. 6 among Myrtle Beach’s top 20) has hosted the Senior PGA Tour Championship, a NCAA Regional Championship and several other high-profile tournaments. This is one of the area’s best golf experiences and the Tom Fazio-Lanny Wadkins design is a treat to play. (TPC Myrtle Beach pictured right)
● With six holes that play along the Intracoastal Waterway, (No. 4) Grande Dunes Resort Club (top photo) is one of the area’s prettiest courses and the layout is of equal quality. You will be talking about the tee shot on the par 3 14th hole, which plays from an elevated tee box to a green that resides along the waterway, long after your trip is over.
● King’s North (No. 10) is one of Myrtle Beach’s iconic layouts and it remains among the area’s best. From “The Gambler,” the legendary par 5 sixth hole that includes an alternate, island fairway, to No. 18, a par 4 that features 40+ bunkers, the Arnold Palmer design is as enjoyable as it is creative.
● Last but certainly not least is (No. 11) Pawleys Plantation Golf Club, (pictured right) an acclaimed Jack Nicklaus design renowned for a back nine that plays along a tidal marsh. Six back nine holes play along the marsh, highlighted by the par 3 13th, which challenges players to hit a peninsula green surrounded by marshy waters. The 13th is daunting and oh-so-enjoyable.
Give me the All-Inclusive package on an unlimited budget and these four courses will be at the top of the list.
