Myrtle Beach, long a destination for weekend buddy trips and weeklong vacations, is making its pitch as a place for golf school.
Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday, which represents 76 golf courses, is launching three golf schools Monday, June 8, aimed at helping families bring down their handicaps together. The schools -- the Hugh Royer Champions Golf Academy, Classic Golf Swing School, and Grande Dunes Golf Academy -- offer various programs and packages.
Children age 16 and under can play free on 46 Grand Strand Courses when accompanied by a paying adult. Other courses offer substantial discounts for junior play.
"We want Moms and Dads to bring the entire family to Myrtle Beach where everyone can enjoy golf,’’ says Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday president Bill Golden. "This year we want to help families improve their games and their golf vacation to be filled with memories they’ll cherish for a lifetime.’’ For more information visit: www.golfholiday.com, www.golfsummerschool.com, www.flymyrtlebeach.com
