Myrtle Beach, S.C., and the surrounding area -- a long stretch of beachfront known as the Grand Strand -- provide a haven for golfers and beach-lovers alike. According to this article, many hotels even include greens fees in their package deals. And although the rows of chain restaurants might turn off some travelers, there are gret seafood houses to be found as well.
With the 104 courses in the area, Myrtle Beach should attract even novice golfers. It's a great, fairly quick trip for East Coasters and Midwesterners alike.
