The best time to golf in Myrtle Beach

Updated on June 17, 2011

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is notorious for being the “Golf Capital of the World”. Millions of golfers flock to the Grand Strand each year just to get a taste of the holy golf grail that is Myrtle Beach. With over 90 golf courses to choose from, miles and miles of gorgeous sandy beaches, oceanfront hotels that reach for the sky, and attractions that can make any 40-year old feel 16 again....who can blame them?

But if you have yet to experience what it’s like to golf in Myrtle Beach, and you’re contemplating organizing a Myrtle Beach Golf Vacation, you must be thinking:

What’s the best time of the year for golf in Myrtle Beach?

Great question! I think I’m going to play it safe, and instead of telling you what my favorite time of the year for Myrtle Beach golf, I’m going to give you the pro’s and con’s of each season and let you make the judgement call.

Myrtle Beach Golf in the Fall/Winter (September thru February)

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina does not really have a “winter”. It does get a little chilly at nighttime, but overall the winters here are extremely pleasant.

Tip: See Myrtle Beach’s average temperatures throughout the year

During this season, golf courses in Myrtle Beach begin their over-seeding process in October and November. Also, they usually enforce “golf-cart path only” rules during over-seeding; allowing you to only drive your golf cart on the cart path, and not on the fairways.


Great weather
Golf courses are in great shape
More inexpensive than Spring
Golf accommodations are cheaper than Summer/Spring
Local restaurants offer discounts and promotions to generate business


Tee-times may start later (frost delay)
Tee-time availability is a bit restricted because of less hours of daylight
Golf course “replay” options are also limited due to hours of daylight

Myrtle Beach Golf in the Spring (March,April,May)

This is prime time for Myrtle Beach Golf. Spring in Myrtle Beach is absolutely amazing. This is a time where golfers are really starting to pack in, flowers and shrubs are starting to bloom, and the ocean is starting to warm up.


Gorgeous weather
Days start to become longer, allowing for more tee-time availability


Traffic is starting to pick up
Golf course rates in Myrtle Beach are at their peak
Harder to acquire tee-times
Golf Accommodations rates start to increase

Myrtle Beach Golf in the Summer (June,July,August)

Wow. If you’ve never been to Myrtle Beach in the Summer, I’d highly suggest you make the trip. This is a time where the weather is amazing, night-life really starts to come alive, and the ocean is like bathwater.


Golf rates are significantly cheaper
The beach is a great pit stop after playing a round of golf
Tee-time availability is greater, due to more families vacationing rather than golfers
The Atlantic Ocean is at its warmest
Night-life is flourishing


High humidity
Hot temperatures
Bugs can be an issue at golf courses with marsh areas
Early morning tee-times are not easily available because everyone is trying to beat the heat
Traffic is extremely excessive
Restaurants are busy
Golf course aerification begins

Hopefully this will give those of you who have never been to Myrtle Beach for a golf trip some insight on the pro's and con's of golfing in the different seasons in Myrtle Beach. Thank you for taking the time to read my hub, and I look forward to any questions or comments you may have for me :)

      Thanks for the information. My only visit to Myrtle Beach was in March of 2009. It was only for a few days while returning from 2 months on Hilton Head. The temperature never got over 40 degrees. Definitely not the norm and very unusual. Would like to return and your guidelines are helpful and encouraging. Voted up and useful.
