Myrtle Beach claims to be the Golf capital of the World. An average winter temperature in the fifties Fahrenheit promotes year round play on over 100 golf courses. Bargain hunting golfers should consider Myrtle Beach in the winter months. During the off-season for the surf-and-sun crowd, many hotels offer specially priced golf packages including green fees, hotel rooms, and gourmet dinners.
Hilton Head Island offers over 20 public or semi-private championship golf courses. The list of course designers includes some of the very best architects: Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Pete Dye, Gary Player, Tom Fazio, Dan Maples, and Rees Jones.
