Chilly Cities Now Have Direct Flights To Sunny Golf Mecca Of Myrtle Beach

(PRWEB) February 14, 2004

Tortured by weeks of terrible winter weather, Northerners and Midwesterners are crying out for a break. Thanks to new ventures by aggressive airlines like Hooters Air, Pan Am and AirTran, escape is at hand.

Many flights into Myrtle Beach, S.C. are now short and direct from areas like Baltimore-Washington, Newark (N.J.), Boston, Detroit and Scranton (Pa.). You can leave your frozen home in the morning, shed your heavy coat, and tee off in the early afternoon on emerald green fairways under the warm Carolina sun.

It’s time to stop the shoveling and tap into winter golf price breaks. In February/March many of the area’s best courses and accommodations are available at bargain rates.

A luxurious Pawleys Plantation experience is as low as $ 359 — breakfast included. The resort has an award-winning chef and one of America’s Top 25 golf schools. Its “Tour Trio Package” offers spacious villas and play on its Jack Nicklaus course, plus rounds on the PGA’s TPC of Myrtle Beach and Wachesaw East, which hosted the LPGA Tour. Its “Island Package” offers play at Pawleys Plantation and nearby courses like Caledonia, True Blue, or Heritage Plantation. Information: or 1-800-367-9959.

Myrtlewood Villas offer convenience, luxury and great golf. Through, golfers can book accommodations and golf on some of the area’s best courses — at unbeatable prices. The “Grand Four” offers a three night stay in a 2-bedroom villa, buffet breakfasts, golf at Pine Lakes International, Grande Dunes, Myrtlewood Golf Club and Tidewater. Prices start at $ 199 per person and include admission to the nightclubs at Celebrity Square, cocktails at Murray Bros. Caddyshack, and golf gifts.

In fact, “Grand Four” offers the most affordable way to play the spectacular Tidewater Golf Club, known as “the Pebble Beach of the East.” Located high on the bluffs of a forested peninsula overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean, Tidewater is one of “America’s Top 100 Places You Can Play” (Golf Magazine).

Many accommodations will book a tee time for you on just about any course in Myrtle Beach if you ask. One worth asking about is Tiger’s Eye at Ocean Ridge Plantation, which Sports called “golf’s version of a big-game safari.” Ocean Ridge’s three courses — Lion’s Paw, Panther’s Run and Tiger’s Eye — wow players with some of golf’s most picturesque holes. The Golf Record of The Carolinas raved, “If you enjoy great golf courses in a beautiful setting, jot down the address. It’s hard to beat this trio.” For Ocean Ridge, call 1-800-233-1801.

So, ask yourself. Do you have the winter doldrums? Sick and tired of shoveling snow and scraping ice? Give yourself a break. There’s no better time to go south to the World Capital of Golf, Myrtle Beach, S.C.
