We’ve all endured abrupt, continuous and rapid change to our daily lives for months now, much of it quite unsettling in a pandemic-driven world. And as the summer wraps and the next phases of our new reality hit, we know you need a break.
For the countless times you’ve wished you could escape the daily grind for some rest and relaxation in “The Golf Capital of the World,” can you think of a time you needed a Myrtle Beach golf trip more than now?
We didn’t think so. And we’re here to help with that. We do so with this promise:
if you haven’t yet experienced Myrtle Beach golf since COVID-19 entered our lives, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the certainty and peace of mind you’ll discover in a Grand Strand golf getaway – right now, this fall, and beyond.
As many facets of daily life are still getting up and running, the golf world has been at it for quite some time now. And the Myrtle Beach golf market is leading the way in providing a safe, welcoming environment for its guests.
Since spring 2020, our courses have taken and refined extensive daily measures to combat COVID-19. These measures are equal parts rigorous and customer-friendly, ensuring you’ll experience minimal deviation from the things you’ve come to love most about a Grand Strand golf getaway.
While many of our guests enjoy Myrtle Beach’s accessibility as a convenient drive market, air travel options to and from Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) remain plentiful. Multiple airlines – including Spirit, American, Allegiant, Delta, United, Frontier, and Sun Country – continue to serve MYR at a busy clip, with scores of daily arrivals and departures serving major markets nationwide. And they’re providing regular updates to what you can expect at MYR in terms of thorough health and safety precautions.
Upon arrival, you’ll still get to enjoy many of the off-course elements that are important to your golf vacation experience. Hotels, restaurants and retail establishments have been reopened since early summer. With thorough social distancing, face covering and sanitization guidelines in place for weeks now at these and all indoor and larger public gathering spaces, business operators and guests alike have complied and adapted with relative ease. And outdoor leisure amenities at our hotels, along with our public beaches up and down the Grand Strand, offer plenty of room for social distancing without sacrificing what you love most about enjoying fun in the sun.
And when it’s time to hit the links, you’ll find golf courses primed and ready for fall play. When the pandemic’s onset kept out-of-town visitors away in March and April, courses took the opportunity to get a jump on seasonal maintenance and fine-tune their product. Now, daily visitors are already experiencing peak playing conditions that September, October and November still promise to deliver, just like any other fall season.
As always, there’s a plentiful array of seasonal package options at your disposal featuring free rounds, free lodging nights, complimentary breakfast/lunch offerings, and even gift cards redeemable for food, beverages, merchandise and replays at the courses on your list. Myrtle Beach’s lodging and vacation providers are experts at custom-crafting an itinerary to suit your group’s unique needs, and have even ramped up their communications efforts to provide all the information you need for making the most informed decisions possible – at a time you truly need it most.
