Myrtle Beach is often touted as the golf capital of the world – with good cause. For a relatively small area, it boasts a large number of golf courses – more than 80, in fact. What's more, courses designed by the big names in the industry, such as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones and Greg Norman, can all be found here. 

At the Barefoot Resort & Golf property, four courses await visitors, including the Pete Dye course, where golfers can tackle one of the most challenging courses in Myrtle Beach. Recent players reported that it is definitely difficult, but worth the demanding play required. Meanwhile, the property's Greg Norman course features seven holes along the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Dunes Golf & Beach Club is equally lauded for its design (Robert Trent Jones was the architect) and varied terrain, including oceanfront, salt marshes, tidal creeks and maritime forests. The course has also hosted numerous PGA Championships. Many reviewers called this their favorite course in Myrtle Beach.

Other well-reviewed courses include TPC Myrtle Beach, True Blue Golf Plantation and Pawleys Plantation, among many others. Green fees and tee times vary by course. For a comprehensive rundown of the area's courses, visit the Myrtle Beach visitors bureau website.

#1 Myrtle Beach

The main reason families flock to Myrtle Beach is to swim in the mild waves and play along the light brown sand. Some spots along the Carolina shore offer opportunities for water sports like Jet Skiing or deep-sea fishing, while other areas are better for relaxing or playing with your children. You'll also find a few spots perfect for casting a line for a fresh catch.

Most who visit the shore of Myrtle Beach do so directly in front of the hotel or rental property where they're staying. So keep in mind that if you're not a beachfront lodger, you might have more trouble finding a public bathroom, but ample metered street parking is available. Some parking lots are also available, most of which are also free and are an easy walk over the dunes at beach access points. Some sandy areas along Ocean Boulevard do have shops and restaurants. During the summer months, lifeguards are on duty along many of the Grand Strand beaches. Access to the beach is free 24/7, though swimming after sunset is not recommended.
