4 Tips When Playing Golf This Summer

Myrtle Beach golf courseWe spend several hours on a golf course under the heat of the sun because we love the sport or perhaps we just want to be punishment. Who knows? There is one thing that we do know and that is the fact that summer golf in Myrtle Beach is comparable to an extreme sport. It is exhilarating. However, you need to prepare yourself. Myrtle Beach Golf Directors offer some tips for golfing during the summer heat that only a Myrtle Beach golf course can offer.

Summer Golf Tip 1: Bring Plenty Of Water

We are not just referring to beers. A lot of golfers like the occasional beer on the front 9 and back 9. However, keep in mind that alcohol will dehydrate your body. Drinking beer is counterproductive for you whenever you are playing golf especially during a hot summer’s day.

Make sure that you purchase plenty of water on the golf clubhouse or snack stand before you proceed. Playing golf during the summer heat can dehydrate you and that is why it is suggested that you drink enough amount of water. How much water do you need to drink? Take your body weight in pounds, divide it by two, and that is the amount of water you need to take. You should also be familiar with the common signs of dehydration. These include fatigue, dry mouth, dry skin, dizziness, and headache.

One of the most important recommendations when playing golf this summer is to remember that drinking sports drink is okay. However, the most effective way to rehydrate on the golf course in Myrtle Beach is to drink cold water. Never rely solely on sugary drinks.

Summer Golf Tip 2: Don’t Forget Sunscreen

Nobody wants to appear like a crisp duck after playing a round of golf during a hot summers day. So, don’t forget to put on some sunscreen before you go on the golf course. This is, of course, one of the most obvious and simplest tips when golfing during summer. But despite that, many golfers tend to forget to do it. Always have a tube of sunscreen in your golf bag or car so you won’t forget. Summer golf trips in Myrtle Beach require at least SPF 30. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your nose as well as the back of your neck. These are some of the places where the sun can cause the most damage.

Summer Golf Tip 3: Dress Properly

Even if you are playing golf on a hot summer day, there are still ways for you to look good. The dress codes of golf courses in Myrtle Beach are usually accommodating towards the golf players as well as the weather conditions. The best options are usually loose fitting codes as well as breathable fabrics.

Summer Golf Tip 4: Rest When Necessary

Whether you paid for tee times only for one day or a summer golf package, you should get the rest you need. Get some shade if necessary, even when the other players are teeing off. In case you have to let a different group play through, then, by all means, do it. Don’t be ashamed of getting a little rest so you can enjoy playing the game as much as you can.

If you are looking for a golf course in Myrtle Beach or a golf package, call Myrtle Beach Golf Directors now.

MB Best Steak Houses

Whether you liked it broiled, blackened or grilled, a steak is the perfect way to end a day. Whatever your preference, Myrtle Beach has nearly as many places to eat a quality steak as it does golf courses.

After conducting an informal survey of some of the Grand Strand’s leading beef consumers, we’ve compiled a list of the area’s top five restaurants to have a steak.

An important ground rule before we proceed: Our well-fed pollsters voted only on local restaurants, meaning the Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse at the Marina Inn, among other fine chain restaurants, was ineligible.

The voting was tight and the difference between No. 5 and No. 10 was tighter than the pants our voters wore, but without further ado, here are the rankings:

1.    New York Prime – New York Prime is, as you may have guessed, a New York-style steakhouse. The ambiance, the food (a 40 ounce porterhouse for two?), it all adds up to the Myrtle Beach area’s best high-end steakhouse.

2.    Angelos Steak & Pasta: While New York Prime screams upscale, Angelos takes a different tact. An all-you-can-eat Italian buffet is not typically an indicator of great steak, but Angelos isn’t typical. Angelos delivers finely cooked bovine and anyone that can eat the Big Daddy is a man among boys.

3.    Martini’s – Elegant, upscale and worth every penny. Martini’s offers a diverse menu, anchored by a selection of steaks to rival any. Here is a personal recommendation for the Steak Au Poivre, a filet rolled in cracked peppercorn and sautéed with assorted mushrooms in a Dijon and brandy cream sauce. The piano bar only adds to the atmosphere.

4.    Greg Norman’s Australian Grille – The Norman brand is everywhere but his only restaurant is in Myrtle Beach, and it’s one of the area’s best. A wood grilled steak from the Shark at a table overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway is hard to beat.

5.    Thoroughbreds – Open since 1988, Thoroughbreds has long been one the Grand Strand’s best. Thoroughbreds touts its 20-ounce bone-in ribeye, but here is a vote for the prime rib.

Interesting Course Facts

Interesting Myrtle Beach Golf Course Facts

All courses in Myrtle Beach have some unbelievable stories to tell. But, this is a little bit of “Did you know?” Several courses in Myrtle Beach have very interesting facts that you probably are not aware of. Get this…

Did you know?      The only out of bounds on Oyster Bay is the road on #18. On #17 (an island green), the oyster shells surrounding the green are considered part of the water hazard.

Did you know?      Thistle is the only course in Myrtle Beach that has twelve minute tee times. Most courses are seven, eight or nine minutes. They will also be opening one of the biggest and most technologically sound clubhouses in the area in the next weeks. Also, they average the largest greens at about 7,300 square feet each.

Did you know?      World Tour has the largest green in Myrtle Beach. It is #9 on the Open nine and is a little over 18,000 square feet. This is the hole that resembles #18 at St. Andrews.

Did you know?      Grande Dunes is the longest course in Myrtle Beach. From the tips, it reaches seven thousand, six hundred and eighteen yards. That’s longer than the U.S. Open!!! I think Tiger still would have won…

Did you know?      Blackmoor has a graveyard on #13. It dates back to 1839 and it rests a plantation family and their slaves.

Did you know?      Farmstead is right on the North Carolina / South Carolina border. 22% of the course is in SC and the other 78% is in NC. On #10 you tee off from NC to SC. If only you could hit it to Georgia…

Did you know?      Heritage has two graveyards. One is on #8 and rests slaves and off the tee of #4 are the settlers that owned the land.

Did you know?      Bald Head Island has no OB. There are no cars allowed on the island; only golf carts are allowed. There are alligators and deer on the island, but how did they get there? Well, during low tide, the deer and alligators can move easily from island to island and eventually end up on Bald Head. And this might be the best we’ve heard… Bald Head Island got its name from the days of Blackbeard. That’s right, the pirate. You see, when low tide would come around, ships would consistently run aground, Blackbeard knew this happened all too often and the ships were there for the taking. Word spread to beware of the “bald head”. Blackbeard’s men would scalp stranded sailors when they raided the grounded ship. Hence, it is named Bald Head Island.

Where do I stay

Where Should I Stay on my Myrtle Beach Golf Package?

 — How to determine the best place to stay on your Myrtle Beach Golf Package? Myrtle Beach is famous for a lot of things. Golf, the beach, the nights, and the shows are just to name a few. Most people think of these things first; and why shouldn’t they? They are fun! Fact is, the accommodations you stay at while in Myrtle Beach have as much to do with everything else. Nobody wants to drive 90 minutes to a golf course. Most people don’t want to drive over 30 minutes. There is a place for you to stay that is inside your budget, comfortable, and located just for you.

Golf Villas
The most popular accommodation for golfers is the golf course villa. This is in few words, a condo on a golf course. These were made for the golfer that doesn’t need the ocean, because, he is here for golf. Have you ever seen a golf course in the ocean? I haven’t. The golf course villa is the most economical for any group of golfers. They have layouts of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms. The most popular way of breaking these down is to put 4 golfers in a two bedroom condo so everyone splits the cost. Bedding rarely is an issue as there are so many golf villas that you can have two, three or four beds in a 2 bedroom unit. In a golf villa, you will have a full kitchen, X amount of bedrooms, a living area, and a washer/dryer. Another good thing about the golf villa is that there are numerous golf villa locations around the area; north, central, south and even in between. The properties that these golf courses villas reside on often have outdoor pools, tennis courts, outdoor grills and putting greens. Only a couple of them have indoor pools and hot tubs. Some of the golf course villas in the area are Myrtlewood Golf Villas, True Blue Golf Villas, World Tour Golf Villas, Barefoot Golf Villas, and Brunswick Plantation Villas, just to name a few. Your golf director can help you choose the right place to be. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions. A couple of us have owned and/or lived in a golf course villa before.

Oceanfront Resorts
Golfers are also interested in staying on the ocean. The sound the ocean makes is one of the most relaxing sounds in Myrtle Beach. With the city behind you and the ocean in front, you kind of get away from all the hustle bustle. Like the golf villas, oceanfront resorts can be set up for any type of group. Bedding is rarely an issue, but sometimes the layouts of these resorts call for something different. The rates for these resorts spike during the summer-time, but are very reasonable in the spring and fall, and then a steal in the winter. Some of the oceanfront resorts in the area are Baywatch Resort, Patricia Grand, Avista Resort, and Camelot by the Sea. Again, like the golf villas being all over the area, the oceanfront resorts cover about 75% of the beaches in Myrtle Beach (about 60 miles worth!). So, from north to south, you can find something. Although: most oceanfront resorts are in Myrtle Beach and in North Myrtle Beach. Along with the ocean and beach come families and kids, especially in the summer. So if you are one of those rowdy groups, make note. Some of these oceanfront resorts have indoor pools, lazy rivers, and jacuzzis and so on. Guys, keep this in mind if your wife is coming along and she does’t play, because she will want something to do while you are out having fun! A common misconception about oceanfront resorts is that they have their own golf course. This is not the case. You will need to drive to your courses. And, again, ask your golf director about which resort is best for you.

Hotel Chains
Hotel Chains are obviously found all over the world and Myrtle Beach is no exception. Hotels like Comfort Suites or Hampton Inn cater well to short stays and smaller groups like singles or two-somes. So, if you have a larger group or a longer stay, go with the golf villas or an oceanfront condo. Most of the hotels in Myrtle Beach provide a continental breakfast at no additional charge, unlike the golf villas and oceanfront resorts. Next, location is key! Just because Hampton Inn is very expensive in downtown Myrtle Beach, doesn’t mean that it is in Pawley’s Island or North Myrtle Beach. And again, ask your golf director which hotel fits you best.

6 and 8 Bedroom Homes/Villas
The large bedroom homes cater well to larger groups who want to stay together. They can accommodate up to 16 golfers in one 8 bedroom house and 12 golfers in one 6 bedroom house. If everyone wants their own bedroom, that’s fine too. The houses are only available in the spring, fall and winter. Summertime in these units is just way too expensive for your average Joe. These units are mainly in North Myrtle Beach, so if you do want to stay in one of these, select courses in the northern area. Your golf director can help you out with the selection. Some of the houses will have a game room. The game rooms vary in what is in them. Some have pool tables, some have foosball tables, and some are just an extra den. The pool tables are the most popular, so if you want to book one of these, do it early. These houses are also either oceanfront or are second row (oceanview), so you get the beach as well. Next, and this is a biggie, bring your own toilet paper for these houses! No TP is provided. I’ll say it again. Ask your golf director for any additional information.

As you start planning your Myrtle Beach golf package, do some research on possible accommodations. Well, technically, you just did. Ask your guys what they think. Prices will fluctuate all year and you might catch a really good deal. In most quotes that you can get emailed to you, all of these options are listed. Don’t hesitate to ask about any of these as that is what your golf director is here for. Sleep well!

Hank the Shank

DO YOU KNOW HANK THE SHANK?

 Got the shanks? Once they come you try everything to get rid of them. You muse, how did I get them? You wonder if they will go away as quickly as they came. Then you wonder if they are with you forever. You tell everyone you play with that you are quitting the game, you can’t stand it any longer. You hit balls, you take anyone’s advice, but they come back after you thought you had it licked.

You are playing well and that big drive sets up a wedge to the green. #%^%$#*&^& you mutter as the approach sails low and right towards the woods or a nearby condo. Luckily you don’t hear glass after that hosel rocket.

CORRECT THAT SHANK……Try not to swing too flat and then throw your arms out cutting across the ball. You need to correct your swing plane. Hang your arms down as you hold the club. Push the club low along a straight path past your back knee. Your trunk rotation will now set the club on the correct plane. An inside out swing path now may just happen to fix that shank.
