Martin Luther King Day And Inauguration Day Combine To Make Affordable Four-Day Holiday Getaway Possible At One Of America's "Most Underrated Resorts"

Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, S.C., is offering a value-laden "Inauguration Package" which combines luxurious accommodations, golf on Pawleys Plantation's award-winning Jack Nicklaus-designed course and a sampling of the resort's gourmet cuisine. In 2009, the inauguration of Barack Obama aligns with the Martin Luther King holiday to provide Federal workers and many others with the opportunity to enjoy a four-day weekend. This unique celebratory weekend prompted Pawleys Plantation to create a getaway package that delivers luxury for less.

In honor of Barack Obama's swearing in as the 44th President, the four-night "Inauguration Package" is priced at 3 hundred and 44 dollars per person. It includes accommodations in a spacious villa, two rounds of golf on Pawleys Plantation's award-winning Jack Nicklaus course, dinner at one of the on-site restaurants, and Pawleys Plantation's famous gourmet Sunday brunch. Friday, January 16th check-in is required. Taxes and gratuities are included.

Pawleys Plantation was recently recognized as "one of the most underrated golf resorts in the Southeastern United States" according to readers of Travel + Leisure Golf magazine. It was the only Grand Strand/Myrtle Beach-area resort to be included on the prestigious list, joining the ranks of the Southeast's most elite venues including Pinehurst Resort and Kiawah Island Golf Resort, as well as world-famous destinations like The Greenbrier and Pebble Beach Resorts.

"On this inaugural weekend, more than four million people are expected to descend on Washington, D.C. and surrounding areas, so it's the perfect time for those living in the Baltimore/Washington area to escape the traffic and crowds with a trip to the tranquil atmosphere of Pawleys Plantation," said Jann Walker, director of marketing at Pawleys Plantation. "We're offering an elegant getaway for an extremely affordable price. With gas prices low, it's an opportunity to enjoy one of the Southeast's finest resorts."

While the "Inauguration Package" is designed primarily for golfers, special rates are also available for non-golfers. More information is available online at or by calling 800-367-9959.
