Social media, for all its abundant ills, also has the ability to bring us closer to people and places we care about, and that’s certainly the case as it pertains to following the Myrtle Beach golf scene.
Just as the area is home to 90 golf courses, there are even more social media accounts, spanning Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, allowing you to enjoy a real-time look at what’s going on in America’s most popular golf destination.
Here is a look at the area’s best social media accounts, regardless of platform.
— If Instagram is your outlet of choice, you need to follow @MyrtleBeachGolfTrips. Each day begins with a video of the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean and then takes you to courses all along the Grand Strand. Photographer extraordinaire Nate DeWitt shares the best of his work, making this a must-follow account.
— Play Golf Myrtle Beach’s Facebook page is the area’s largest golf-specific account with more than 188,000 fans. With a steady stream of video content flowing through the page, including the work of former Golf Channel star Charlie Rymer, this is a great follow.
— The Facebook page for MBN.com isn’t as big with 34,000 “likes” but it’s no less entertaining, providing photos, golf instruction and facebook live broadcasts with LPGA Instructor and Myrtle Beach Golf Ambassador Meredith Kirk, video and written content that keeps golfers in touch with all things Myrtle Beach golf, on and off the course.
— For fans of Mike Strantz, let me suggest the Caledonia/True Blue Instagram page, which offers a daily look at two of Myrtle Beach’s best and most scenic layouts. Looking at those two courses never gets old.
— If you prefer to live 280 characters at a time, let me suggest the @MBTrips Twitter account, which delivers the beauty of the Instagram pics and the stories and video golfers enjoy on Facebook. The audience and engagement are still growing, but this is a Twitter account you will want to follow.
Your choices on social media are almost endless, but these five accounts need to be at the top of your list.
