Years ago Myrtle Beach was the number one destination for all-male buddy trips, corporate executive outings and bachelor parties, but today more and more families are choosing Myrtle Beach as their vacation destination with golf as one of the activities in which the entire family can participate.
The Grand Strand offers some of the best family golf deals, including the game’s most extensive “Kids Play Free” program with more than 50 area courses participating. At its zenith from June through August, the program allows kids 16 and under to play for free when accompanied by a paying adult. It’s a great way to expose kids to the game and enjoy family time together.
