You could spend a lifetime playing golf in South Carolina…and you’d never get bored. The Myrtle Beach area is known by many as “The Golf Capital of the World.” More than a million golfers play there each year, on a 100-kilometre stretch of coastline known as “The Grand Strand.” This area alone is home to 115 public access courses, including 7 of Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Public Courses. The attraction of golf in Myrtle Beach is not just the volume of courses but the variety, from Scottish links-style tracks to traditional plantation courses to modern designs.
As if Myrtle Beach wasn’t enough, South Carolina is also home to famous golf destinations like Hilton Head Island and Kiawah Island, home of Pete Dye’s famed Ocean Course and several other fabulous seaside layouts. Throughout the state, the game of golf is celebrated like nowhere else, with excellent golf-centered resorts, fine restaurants and winning Southern hospitality.
