Myrtle Beach Golf

Best Courses for Pros, Families, Women (From WestJet’s in-flight magazine Up!) by Sandra Chambers

Years ago, Myrtle Beach, S.C., was a popular golf destination for all-male buddy trips, corporate executive outings and bachelor parties. Men would make their annual golf trek, leaving the wife and kids behind. Today, visitors are discovering a family-friendly golf mecca that also offers upscale entertainment, a bustling nightlife, outstanding restaurants, shopping and sandy beaches where flip-flops are always in style.

A Romantic Getaway in Myrtle Beach, SC

Grab your honey and head for Myrtle Beach for some great off-season fun!

Some people  think of Myrtle Beach primarily as a summer beach or golf destination, but there’s plenty to do off-season along the Grand Strand.

Walk on an uncrowded beach, have a drink in the bar with an ocean view, or indulge at their Hibiscus Spa with a winter special of two mini spa services (facial, manicure, pedicure or massage)  for just $85.

Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro

Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro

(1)The Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro (Little River, SC)  Featuring “Low  Country French Cuisine,” this unique restaurant is located  in a quaint Victorian home built in 1910. With several fireplaces and private dining rooms this is the place for a great romantic dinner!  The staff will gladly share stories about how the house is haunted!

Select from the Chef’s 7-course Tasting Menu, a 4-course “Prix Fixe,” or the La Carte dinner menu. I selected the Cote De Beuf (Cadillac of Steaks) while my husband had a daily special of Beef Wellington.  The Brentwood also boasts a huge wine selection. In fact, several rooms are totally wallpapered with wine corks!  Chef Eric Masson, who holds three culinary degrees, won first place in the 201 1 Coastal Uncorked Iron Chef competition.
