By booking a spring golf package with the Glens before Dec. 1, golfers can realize great savings.
Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) October 23, 2011
Spring is an ideal time for a Myrtle Beach golf vacation. But with rising temperatures, come premium prices. Many golfers head south to jumpstart their golf season in spring and that increases demand for tee times. So golf courses in Myrtle Beach charge their highest rates for spring tee times.
This year, the Glens Golf Group is bucking that trend and showing golfers a way to have a great spring vacation for less. With a little planning and some early booking by Dec. 1, golfers can save 20% off the cost of their golf package rounds. Even more savings can be had by taking advantage of the Glens Free Replay Promotion.
Accommodations for these special golf packages are at The Village at the Glens, adjacent to Heather Glen Golf Links. Each Scottish-style villa has two bedrooms, each with double beds, two full baths, a full kitchen, washer and dryer, and a large living and dining area.
“By booking a spring golf package with the Glens before Dec. 1, golfers can realize great savings and still have the flexibility to customize their packages,” said Jason Himmelsbach, director of marketing for the Glens Golf Group. “Golf Digest and Golf Magazine have raved about Heather Glen, Glen Dornoch and Shaftesbury Glen, and Golf Digest considers Possum Trot to be one of the most underrated courses in Myrtle Beach. Imagine playing premium courses in prime season at discounted rates. All it takes is a little pre-planning. In this case, it's really true that the early bird gets the best deal.”
The four Glens courses, which are all within a short drive of each other, include Heather Glen, Glen Dornoch, Shaftesbury Glen and Possum Trot.
Heather Glen (http://www.glensgolfgroup.com/courses/heather-glen/) is located in Little River, S.C., near the Village of the Glens. Set on a magnificent, 400-acre historic site, it was named the Best New Golf Course In America when it opened. Architects Willard Byrd and Clyde Johnston crafted 27 beautiful holes inspired by the great links of Scotland.
Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf Links (http://www.glensgolfgroup.com/courses/glen-dornoch/), often referred to as “Myrtle Beach’s Most Talked About Course,” was designed by Clyde Johnston in a tribute to legendary course architect Donald Ross. Glen Dornoch is a traditional course and each hole flows with the natural terrain of lakes, live oaks and spectacular marsh and river views. Several holes play along the Intracoastal Waterway.
Known as the “Friendliest Course On The Beach,” Possum Trot (http://www.glensgolfgroup.com/courses/possum-trot/) has an honored place in the history of Myrtle Beach golf. One of the first ten championship courses built along Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand, Possum Trot has stood the test of time. The course’s Old English design features spacious fairways, challenging par 5’s, as well as flawlessly manicured greens and spectacular flower displays.
Inspired by world-famous courses like Winged Foot and Augusta National, architect Clyde Johnston designed a traditional British Isles course at Shaftesbury Glen Golf & Fish Club (http://www.glensgolfgroup.com/courses/shaftesbury-glen/), located on the banks of South Carolina’s beautiful Waccamaw River. Shaftesbury Glen's honors include being named the 2009 Golf Course of the Year by Myrtle Beach area golf course owners.
By saving on golf, there's more to be spent on the great restaurants, shops and entertainment venues that are near the Villages. The complex is only minutes from the Myrtle Beach or Wilmington airports, but most golfers coming in from the northeast corridor or midwest drive to the Glens in less than a day.
