Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (PRWEB) September 22, 2016 -- Ocean Lakes Family Campground has been recommended by the Good Sam Travel And Savings Guide as a top campground for golfers. Appearing in the August edition, it is also the only campground in South Carolina to be on this prestigious national list of recommendations.
"We have one of the best golf courses in South Carolina, Prestwick Country Club, owned by The Jackson Companies which also owns Ocean Lakes," said Barb Krumm, Director of Marketing and PR for Ocean Lakes Family Campground. "The golf course is just five minutes from Ocean Lakes, making it convenient to guests that enjoy golf, plus our guests get the best golf rate. Meanwhile, the rest of the family can enjoy Ocean Lakes’ amenities, including a brand new water park that opened in May."
Prestwick Country Club's layout was designed by Pete and P.B. Dye and is ranked among the top 50 courses in South Carolina, which has more than 350 courses. It features berms, deep pot bunkers and rolling greens. At 7,086 yards from the back tees, with a rating of 74.7 and slope of 138, it can be a formidable test of golf for the game's best-skilled players, yet is an enjoyable test for golfers of all levels, offering many risk/reward options from all of its six sets of tees.
Over the years, Ocean Lakes has received numerous awards for excellence. TripAdvisor awarded Ocean Lakes its 2016 “Certificate of Excellence" and ranked it No. 1 in specialty lodging. The 2016 Good Sam RV Travel Guide & Campground Directory rated Ocean Lakes 10/10*/10, a great feat for a park that is 45 years old. In March, it was one of only a select number of campgrounds, RV parks and resorts to receive an overall “A” rating from the 2015 GuestRated™ satisfaction survey. All this recognition puts Ocean Lakes in the top one percent of all campgrounds in the nation.
"We want our guests to really enjoy their stay with us," said Krumm. "With our numerous amenities onsite, including almost a mile of beachfront, as well as a spectacular golf course just down the road, we have something to please everyone in the family."
Developed by the editors of the Good Sam RV Travel & Savings Guide, the 12 Months of RVing Online Calendar focuses on RV-related interests and hobbies. Each month, top rated RV parks that fit a specific RV-related interest are recommended. The monthly list of recommendations is chosen from the guide’s database of more than 7,000 private RV parks.
