Myrtle Beach is the self-titled "Golf Capital USA," and it has the courses to back it up. There are more than 100 golf courses within a 60-mile radius, so visitors can find exactly what they're looking for on the links. For groups of golfers looking for a guys' getaway, check out some of Myrtle Beach's most challenging layouts in The Dunes Golf & Beach Club and the TPC Myrtle Beach . For parents looking to leave the spouse and kids at the beach while they sneak away to the links, Barefoot Golf Resort features four great courses close to all the action. But if you're looking to escape the bright lights of Myrtle Beach, a short drive south to Pawleys Island is well worth the trip, featuring former rice and indigo plantations that have been carved into lovely Lowcountry layouts like Caledonia Golf & Fish Club and True Blue Plantation.Nature is also abundant and beautiful on the north end of the Grand Strand along the Carolina border at Rivers Edge Golf Club and the Big Cats of Ocean Ridge Plantation. Along with some of the most scenic coastal courses in the Southeast, a short drive inland reveals another landscape of dense maritime forests and pristine wetlands. There are also many more affordable courses for golfers on a budget, and special golf packages are available at most resorts that offer discounts on golf and accommodations.
