Spring golf getaways from Myrtle Beach to the South Carolina Sea Islands are waiting for you.
There is no finer place to play golf in the early spring than South Carolina, and in South Carolina spring arrives much earlier than elsewhere. Long before the spring grasses start pushing up on the fairways of Michigan and New York and even Virginia, in South Carolina the fairways are green and the daffodils are blooming.
If you’re longing for some golf weather that won’t require rain pants and thermal undershirts if may be time to pack your clubs and head for the Palmetto State. Golf is a year-round sport in South Carolina but it’s at its best in the early spring.
I’ll assume you’re driving down from the colder latitudes and start your golf getaway on the northern side of the Grand Strand. We’ll play some rounds at a couple of the finest Myrtle Beach venues, then drift south to the shabby gentility of Pawleys Island for some more golf. From there we’ll take in some golf around the Holy City, then sample a few Low Country Sea Island tracks and wind up our spring golf getaway near Beaufort on Cat Island.
It’s still oyster season, so you won’t lack for the luscious mollusks in all their varieties. And you’ll want to start your days with some cheese grits. Be sure to pack a light sweater. Early morning starts can still be a bit brisk. But plan to relax and go casual.
Let’s start now with the Grand Strand.
