It's that time of year when the golf clubs go to the garage or spend the winter in the trunk of your car for a long, chilly hibernation. Those sunny days on the links might seem like a distant light at the end of a dark, par-5 tunnel, but they're not as far away as you might think. Myrtle Beach's spring golf season will be here faster than you can shout “Fore!” Speaking of fore, here are four reasons to start planning your 2017 Grand Strand spring golf getaway at Bay View on the Boardwalk:
* Easy Access: In addition to Bay View on the Boardwalk's clean, comfortable accommodations and outstanding amenities, there are three other major factors supporting a stay at the oceanfront resort – location, location, location. After a long day of chasing the little white ball all over the links, guests don't have to walk very far to find all the fun things Myrtle Beach has to offer off the course. Take a short stroll down the adjoining Myrtle Beach Boardwalk to the downtown district's top attractions, shops, restaurants and bars. Cap a great day of golf with a fun night on the town, then walk back to Bay View to get ready to do it all over again the next day.
* Courses: There's a good reason the spring golf season is the most popular time of year on area courses – because the conditions are perfect. Offseason maintenance has the layouts in ship shape by the time the magnolias start to bloom, and golfers get to enjoy the natural beauty of the Grand Strand in the springtime, as well as a challenging test of golf on one of the area's many award-winning layouts. Imagine playing 18, 27 or even 36 holes in a day at a Myrtle Beach golf course while your golf buddies back home haven't even visited the driving range yet. It's sure to give you a competitive edge and improve your game, which is what it's really all about for die-hard golfers.
* Packages: Golfing guests can parlay their love for the game into big discounts on both accommodations and tee times by taking advantage of a spring golf package. Featuring access to the guaranteed lowest rates available at more than 60 courses on the Grand Strand, a Myrtle Beach golf package can save you money on greens fees, in addition to providing discounted room rates. Choose from a wide selection of prepared packages at specific courses, which include greens fees, free meals, drinks and up to $100 in gift cards, or create your dream package by picking the courses you want to play.
* Weather: For many golfers, winter golf is too cold. For others, summer golf is too hot. But both agree that the weather is just right for golf on the Grand Strand in the spring. The birds are singing, the bees are buzzing, and the golf courses are jumping with activity during the mild and comfortable days of spring. The ocean breeze serves as a moderator to extreme temperatures, and the South Carolina climate provides the perfect setting for a fun but challenging round of golf.
No matter which courses you decide to play, there's only one place to stay for the ultimate spring golf retreat. Make your plans to play some of the top courses on the Grand Strand this spring, and book your reservations to spend your vacation with us at Bay View on the Boardwalk.
