Myrtle Beach Courses?

Hey WRX'ers,
I am planning a weekend trip to Myrtle Beach in early March and was wondering what the weather conditions are at that time, and wanted some recommendations for some courses to play on a budget. I need to keep the cost down so we can get several guys to go. Thanks in advance for your help.

Answers:
Crow Creek, Tiger's Eye, PGA National (all but the North course), any of the Glenn's. Just to name a few that aren't too pricey.
Answers:
I'll be heading down the middle of February. We are playing Shaftsbury Glen, Heather Glen, Aarowhead, and the Dunes. Going back at the end of March, but not sure what we are playing yet. There are so many, I don't think you can really go wrong.
Answers:
If you're going towards the end of March, most of the courses are going to be charging peak prices. Some real good ones on the northern part of town are Glen Dornoch, Tiger's Eye, Tidewater and Oyster Bay.

I find the weather in MB in early march can be hit or miss, depending on where your from the weather in early march can feel cool or cold if your use to warm winters and warm if your from the northern lands. I've been there where it can be in the 40's one day then up to high 70's low 80's next. You may want to pack clothes you can wear as layers on the course and expect both cooler and warmer days.

I like Indio Creek and Indian Wells as a couple of decent and affordable courses to play.

Not like I want to attract a crowd, but Legends has a pay for 3, play 4 special. This not only includes all day free range / practice green / practice bunkers, but breakfast, 3 courses on site (Heathland/Moorland/Parkland) and Heritage (south) and Oyster Bay (north).
Answers:
Barefoot has an awesome package as well. Pay for 3 days, get a fourth night and round for free. The Fazio, Dye and Love courses are great tracts.

If you are still in the planning stages, I would like to make a suggestion. Brian Noblin who owns the forum Myrtle Beach Golf Talk is a packager in MB. He can help you with lodging and booking your courses. He can help you put together a package based upon what you are looking for, in the part of Myrtle Beach where you would be staying. He can make recommendations to you and he is aware of which companies own multiple golf courses in MB and offer package rates for playing multiples of their courses. And, if you have any issues while you are in MB, he is local and will help you out. Brian is a super guy.

3 day trips start at $225 to $750, there are to many golf and lodging options to guess at what you want. How many days are you going, and whats your budget is a good start?
A few key things to know about spring trips to MB from a guy who has been going their for 20 years. Prime season in MB starts on March 11, after that date your package prices will all increase by 30%. Also, you need to book asap if you want good tee times, so if you don't lock in soon your tee time will be before 8am or after 1:00pm, the good courses will be all booked. Keep in mind most the better courses split tees so there will be no times avail after 10:20 and before 12:40 until the course clears. Call 2 or 3 package providers and get them biding aginst each other their are some good deals right now due to the economy.
I just book our package for 12 this year going from march 5-9, crow creek, cape fear, both myrtlewoods and pine lakes and lodging in condos w/breakfast. 5 rounds and golf for $450 incl carts.

That's the trip I just booked. Going by myself (costs a little more). Playing Legends, Heritage & Oyster Bay.
I booked for mid-February also. The costs are much lower but your'e taking a chance with the weather. Mid March (I believe) starts their peak season.
Barefoot has an awesome package as well. Pay for 3 days, get a fourth night and round for free. The Fazio, Dye and Love courses are great tracts.
Be careful with the 4th night deal at Barefoot. They told me the 4th free night is only good in Ferbruary. In March they will give you the 4th golf round free but not the 4th night.

Be sure to visit the front desk (tee time booth) at Martin's Golf and Tennis. These are "superstore" type places and there is one in N Myrtle and S Myrtle. They have good last minute deals there at times and have info/brochures on nearly all area courses. I live 2 hours away in NC and spend many weekends down at Myrtle. For value, be sure to play Possum Trot and Waterway Hills in North Myrtle. Great golf to be had at these courses and they don't break the bank. If you can find the money and want one special round, play Glen Dornach in Little River (15 minutes N of N Myrtle).

Is Waterway Hills the one where you have to take take the gondola from the parking lot?
Answers:
Drive south on hwy 17 to Pawleys Island and play True Blue and Caledonia! Best at the beach.
Answers:
If you are on a budget, check to see if you can find The Witch in a package. I played there as an extra round last November. While it's no Barefoot or Caledonia, the bang for the buck was pretty good.

Yep, that is it. My folks had a weekend house about 3 miles from there for 15 years or so. Now they vacation a little further north in Southport,NC. We used to play Waterway Hills and Possum Trot often. Fantastic value to be had at either.
Answers:
Great place to go, where do you start? i played Long Bay, Waterway Hills, National, Deer track(long of blues), The Witch, and and a couple of others that i can't remember. My mate and I were off 4 and 5 at the time and found them all good especially as we played from the back tees on most. :drinks: Enjoy - jealous as it is full of snow in England>

I agree there is also Pawley's Plantation, the Heritage, The Founders Club, the best course in the area are all together in Pawleys Island. There are some great courses in Myrtle but there is so many and they are all alike. Pawleys has the most unique courses all in one area

Here's Golf Digest top 50 Myrtle courses....
Had a package deal for a week last March with several golfing buddies.
Played ranked # 4, 20, 31, 34, 35, 48 & Myrtle Beach National South Creek and West courses.
I enjoyed all the courses we played, barring the West course, greens we're too hard and fast.... I've never had so many 3/4 putts in a round.
And Caledonia and King's North were by far the nicest we played at Myrtle (Caledonia had a great golf nostalgia feel). The other courses were no slouch either.
The rankings have a good range in price, so I think you'll find something you'll like.
Can't wait to go back and try the others.....

Hey Guys...
Thanks for the info about Brian Noblin.. called him yesterday and he is a super guy. This is the deal some friends and I are planning on booking with him in the next few weeks, please let me know what you think.. and some reviews on the courses. I did notice that most of them are on the top 50 golf digest list, but not that many mentioned here on wrx compared to others ie: Caledonia, Barefoot etc...
April 15-19 - 3 nights - 5 rounds @ Legends Golf Resort. 2 Bedroom condo w/ 2 doubles in each room and maid service. 5 rounds of golf are at
Mooreland
Parkland
Heathland
Oyster Bay
Heritage club
Breakfast, Lunch and 2 drinks each day.
$480 per person tax in.
We can also get barefoot resort @ 3 night, 4 rounds with breakfast for $677 tax in...
Would the $200 up charge to stay at Barefoot be worth the price difference, also keeping in mind that there is only breakfast included at barefoot.
Thanks guys, any reviews and opinions would be welcome and free to throw in any other package deals you have come across or we should check out.

Yes have played these courses more than once. Here are my ratings.
1.) Heritage
2.) Parkland
3.) Oyster Bay
4-5) Moorland - Heathland no particular preference here. Parkland is the best at Legends hands down.
I go with a group of 20 every year to MB and we switch between South, Central and North locations. This year we are staying at Legends (Central) playing The Witch, Parkland, MB National Kings North/South, Arrowhead, Myrtlewood, and Man-O-War (not including replays of course).
South location golf course are my favorites, including True Blue, Caledonia, Pawleys, Heritage, Wachesaw, and TPC.
Have fun and play 36 a day!

I think you won't be disappointed with the courses you'll be playing. But it's dependent on how much $$$$ you want to spend. I heard barefoot have awesome courses. And remember..... there's always next year......;-)
