November a Sneaky Solid Time for Myrtle Beach Golf

Grande Dunes Resort Club

Story by Ian Guerin

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. | The peak golf season has come and gone, but with only a slight drop-off in temperatures from the previous month, November is again primed to shine on South Carolina’s Grand Strand golf circuit. More than a handful of courses will still be breaking in new greens while the traffic has decreased some, leaving a perfect confluence of freedom to explore the quality product under your feet. Throughout November - not just during that third full week of the month when the Thanksgiving holiday falls - the opportunities are endless to take full advantage of everything Myrtle Beach golf has to offer.

 

BLAZING THE TRAIL

One of the popular insets of Myrtle Beach golf is surely the Waccamaw Golf Trail. And November is a perfect time to package some of its 12 courses. That’s because whether it’s the prestigious TPC of Myrtle Beach or Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, the historic Willbrook Plantation or Litchfield Country Club or the picturesque Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club or True Blue Golf Plantation, the creativity along the trail is unmatched both in terms of design and scenery, especially as Mother Nature has started to change the backdrop of those Lowcountry courses.

WEATHER OR NOT

Are there going to be days in which golf isn’t as comfortable during November? Of course. But in the “It’s all relative” department, those mornings and afternoons are few and far between. The standard averages have us pushing 70 degrees (on average) and days in the 80s can still be common. On the other side, days in which the thermostat falls below 50 are not, at least during daylight hours when you’d be swinging the sticks. At worst, a long-sleeve shirt under the polo will take care of the issue.

RESTAURANT CROWDS

Remember those expected waits from the spring or summer? Yeah, those are gone now. The most popular eateries in town, from Sea Captain’s House and Angelo’s Steak & Pasta to Mr. Fish and 21 Main are busy year-round. But there is a noticeable difference between tourist busy and regular busy. Getting in the door isn’t a problem and putting some great grub in your belly is that much easier.

GETTING OUT AND ABOUT

On top from a number of festivals that dot the calendar each fall, the area has crafted a handful of events only available here that encircle the entire spectrum. The Island Fever Music Fest and Winestock at La Belle Amie Vineyard in Little River take care of the wine and cheese crowd while those seeking the need for speed can hit up the Myrtle Beach Speedway for races (on the second and third weekends of the month) where Super Trucks, Late Models and Mini-Stock drivers get to show their stuff.King's North at Myrtle Beach National

PLAY AT YOUR PACE

Courses have mastered the art of packed houses, and now that tee sheets are lightened up some, getting the most out of your game without feeling the pressure of stacked tee boxes can be a welcome attraction to the game all its own. The beauty of Grande Dunes Resort Club and its spot atop the cliffs overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, the deft of Jack Nicklaus’ design at Long Bay Club or the opportunity to take an extra hack on The Gambler at King’s North at Myrtle Beach National are prevalent when the game slows down. Concurrently, the chance to pull out of a property less than four hours after arrival is very much alive on the likes of Burning Ridge Golf Club or Indian Wells Golf Club. So whether you want to play faster or slower, frankly, the choice is more up to you than the last several months.
