Why Golf Is The Ultimate Business Tool

golfSome people think that golf is no longer considered as an effective business tool. Even though the participation has decreased in the past few years, there are still 25 million golf players in USA and that figure is not actually a small number.

You will be more impressed with these numbers if you consider how many sports stars, top CEOs, entrepreneurs, and celebrities who are avid golfers. About 90% of Fortune 500 CEOs play golf as have nearly all US presidents ever since Ike. Additionally, business executives who play golf tend to make an average of 17% more than those who do not.

Business golf is thriving. If you want your career or business to improve, you need to get in on the action.

Face Time

Is there any place where you can spend four quality hours with your valued customer or company CEO? A lot of people have extremely busy schedules and they are lucky enough to get five minutes of free time. There is just no other sport that can provide the amount of quiet time between shots and spend it talking about things and exploring mutual interests.

Serene Surroundings

Instead of staying in the office, why don’t you plan a meeting with your client in a place that is surrounded by sand, nature, and water? This will make a more friendly and relaxed environment where you can do business with without too much distractions.

Why Fall Is The Best Time For A Golf Vacation In Grand Strand

Apart from citing the leaf principle, fall is by far the best season to play golf in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The accommodations are cheaper, the place is cooler, the children are back to school, and the hot tub found at the beach side condos are not full-packed with people. This has been confirmed one more time last week during what has become a yearly fall trip to the Grand Strand. When I arrived, the temperature during the day still reached the 80s. During the weekend, I started to feel the cold weather, which I consider as the best weather for golf.

It almost never rains in the fall. In the morning, the temperature is at about in the 80 degrees and drops in the 50s in the evening. The weather condition is perfect. The only disadvantage of playing golf in the fall is that the days are far shorter. You should avoid Myrtle Beach golf courses after they overseed. Don’t forget to check the website of the golf course that you are interested in so you can get the schedule.

There are about 100 golf courses in Myrtle Beach. But this place is not only a golf destination. In the summer season, families go to beaches, which leads to a dramatic increase in the accommodation costs and price of golf packages.

You will also be impressed by the dining scene in the Myrtle Beach area. Even though Myrtle Beach has a blue collar track record, there is something for everyone, whether you want fine dining or just barbecue and pizza. In the past 20 years, a lot of people from different parts of the country moved into this place, which led to an influx of restaurants. A few great places worth visiting are Umberto’s Pittsburgh-Italian Trattoria, which is found in Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.

Myrtle Beach is also a wonderful spot for people who love to eat seafood. In Murrells Inlet, you have the chance to get a taste of various local cuisines at Wahoo’ Fish House. Meanwhile, Barefoot Landing is home to the Flying Fish Public Market and Grill offers you fresh fish. If you want barbecue, go to Sticky Fingers Rib House, which is located close to the airport. Apart from the ribs as well as other conventional Carolina BBQ, Sticky Fingers is also famous for its smoked, slow cooked, and Texas style beef brisket. For breakfast places, you should go to Grisson Parkway in Myrtle Beach and look for  Croissants Bistro & Bakery, which is known for their delicious Crab Cake Eggs Benedict.

There is also something for everyone when considering the golf courses in Myrtle Beach. If you are looking for a great golf package for upcoming Myrtle Beach golf trip, call Myrtle Beach Golf Directors now.

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.
