Golf At Possum Trot Offers Beauty, Challenge And Affordable Prices In Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Beach Bound Golfers Can Chase Away Recession Blues With South Carolina’s Best Buy In Golf And Instruction
Nearly everyone today is budget-conscious, so it’s no surprise to learn that winter-weary golfers are already searching the Southeast for the best deals in spring golf getaways. Many are finding that the most reasonably-priced are in Myrtle Beach, S.C. where The Glens Golf Group is offering great prices for those who want to stay and play.
Spring is high season along South Carolina’s coast. It’s the time when thousands of golfers head to the Palmetto state to tune up their games and soak in the sunshine. Capitalizing on their mild climates, destinations like Hilton Head and Kiawah Island hike up their greens fees to well over $150 per round. But, up the coast in Myrtle Beach, S.C., the weather is just as good — and the prices are much more reasonable.
Perhaps the best deal along Myrtle Beach’s world-famous Grand Strand this spring is at Possum Trot Golf Club which, coincidentally, is also known as the “Friendliest Course On The Beach.” For around $60 (including cart), golfers can tee it up for 18 holes. For less than $700, they can work on their games at a three-day golf school right on-site.
Possum Trot has an honored place in the history of Myrtle Beach golf. It was one of the first ten championship courses built along the Grand Strand, which now has more than 100 golf courses. But old doesn’t mean antiquated. Possum Trot has stood the test of time. Its design is reminiscent of England’s great courses with spacious fairways and formidable par 5’s; and its top-notch crew ensures great conditioning and flawless, manicured greens that are comparable to those at much higher-priced courses.
Possum Trot both charms and surprises. Its playful logo and spectacular flower displays seem to promise an easy day on the course. And, while average golfers will find it very playable, those who back up to the tips soon discover it’s quite a challenge. Add in the excellent customer service provided by all the staff, and it’s no wonder that the par 72 layout earned such a good rating from Golf Digest’s Places To Play, which ranks the course “very good to outstanding.”
In addition to providing conditioning and service that are well above average, Possum Trot is the home base of one of Myrtle Beach’s most affordable golf schools. For less than $300, a golfer can get a day of instruction at The Glens Golf Academy, Simply Great Golf. The Academy is a complete training center and its facilities include a full-length driving range, a separate short game range, an indoor range and a 12,000 square foot putting green. Individual or group lessons are provided by a distinguished staff of LPGA and PGA certified instructors, as well as the school’s director, Mike Passmore. A three-time PGA Section “Teacher of the Year,” Passmore was named one of the PGA of America’s “top six PGA Teachers in the U.S.” in 2006.
For golfers who want to stay, play and learn, The Glens Group offer accommodations at The Village at the Glens, a short drive up Highway 17 at its Heather Glen Golf Links. Two and three bedroom villas are available there in Scottish-themed buildings that surround a lighted practice green for those night-time putting tune-ups. Accommodation rates for golf school students begin around $50 per person, per night.
The Glens Group also offers several very affordable stay-and-play packages that start at $308 and can get the vacationing golfer tee times on the other Glens courses. Packages include free range balls, complimentary breakfast and discounted replays. Or the Group’s staff will help you a create a custom package that includes both Possum Trot golf and play on any of 90 other courses along Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand.
