Blessed with some of the best beaches in the world, the Grand Strand is also home to some of the best golf courses in the world as well. With more than 100 golf courses in the 70-mile stretch of coast from the North Carolina line south to Georgetown, there are golf courses to challenge any golfer and fit any golfer’s budget. And when you consider prestigious magazines like Golf Digest have ranked 10 of the Grant Strand’s courses in its Top 100, it’s easy to see why if you’re a golfer and renting a condo in Myrtle Beach or anywhere else along Grand Strand, you’re renting a little piece of heaven.
With great courses in every region, the Grand Strand can be roughly divided into three sections, the North Strand, South Strand and, of course, Myrtle Beach in between. And no matter which region you find the perfect condo for rent for your vacation, a great golf course is just minutes away.
From the state line down to North Myrtle Beach, there are scores of great golf courses, including those that are nationally and internationally known and recognized. In fact, four of its most famous courses come from four members of golfing royalty — Greg Norman, Tom Fazio, Davis Love III, and Pete Dye — coming together to design four of the world’s top courses in Barefoot Resort and available for play whether you’re staying in one of Barefoot’s great condos for rent or elsewhere.
From Murrells Inlet in the south up to Myrtle Beach, the South Strand is home to some of the legendary names in Grand Strand courses with moss-draped oaks gracing their fairways and greens. Caledonia Golf & Fish Cub, Pawley’s Plantation and the Heritage Club are just a few of the familiar names.
And of course in the middle Myrtle Beach is home to the prestigious Grand Dunes Club just off the Atlantic. There’s the historic Pine Lakes International, the area’s first course, and great multicourse clubs like Legends and Myrtle Beach National.
