Myrtle Beach is still a Golf Mecca

With hundreds of award winning golf courses, Myrtle Beach is widely known throughout the country as the “Golf Capital of America”. A little known fact is Myrtle Beach is actually the primary place golf packages began. Golf Holiday, a non-profit organization, actually came up with the idea of getting discounted golf, hotel rates, and airfare together.

It isn’t very unusual to see hotels and resorts offering golf packages at the sign in desk. One of the most popular courses that offer discounts would be the Dunes Golf & Beach Club. This club was actually the legendary course that brought everyone to golf in Myrtle Beach. Supposively, 60 years ago, Golf Writers Association writers met there to play a round of golf, making the course an often discussed topic. This in the end brought people to play the course, which resulted in more courses opening up throughout the area. If you are looking for a good game of golf to play you are surely to find one in Myrtle Beach!
