APRIL IN MYRTLE BEACH IS TOUGH TO BEAT

April is the heart of Myrtle Beach’s spring golf season. The weather is idyllic and the area will be bustling with players, enjoying everything a Myrtle Beach golf trip has to offer. From the weather to off-course entertainment and everything in between, here is what you you can expect to find in Myrtle Beach this April:

 

Weather
There may not be a better weather month to golf in Myrtle Beach. The average high is 76, the summer humidity hasn’t appeared on the horizon, AND April is driest month of year by far, averaging just 2.12 inches per rain. That forecast, which is even better if you are still battling the remnants of winter in the Northeast, is reason enough to take a Myrtle Beach golf trip!

 

Golf  
Great as the weather is, it’s golf you want to play and no one delivers like Myrtle Beach. The area’s value is legendary, but it’s not price that delivers that value – it’s quality. 

The reality is you can find cheap Cheap Golf anywhere. What you can’t find elsewhere is the combination of quality and price point Myrtle Beach provides. The area is home to more than 50 4-star courses, including 14 that have been ranked among America’s top 100 public courses in recent years. 

Let me know when you can beat the combination of quality and value Myrtle Beach offers. Many have tried, but the king of golf destinations still stands and the primary reason begins on the first tee. 

 

What’s happening in April? 
If you’ve been to the Grand Strand more than once, you are aware of the fun there is to be had at Broadway at the Beach, the Marshwalk and various other establishments throughout the area. 

But each month brings new adventure to Myrtle Beach and here are three things we would advise you to take note of if they correspond with the dates of your trip:

1. Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am, April 11: Admittedly, this one doesn’t come as a surprise, but I couldn’t not include it. Darius Rucker and the boys will again bring their celebrity friends to Barefoot Resort’s Dye Course, along with four nationally syndicated Westwood One radio shows. Among the big names scheduled to attend are Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III, women’s soccer legends Mia Hamm and Abby Wambach, and pro football hall of famer Dan Marino. The event doesn’t tee off until 10, so if you can get a ticket, you can squeeze in a morning round at the Love, Fazio or Norman courses at Barefoot and then enjoy the event in the afternoon. 

2. The Hootie event won’t be the only celebrity gathering along the Grand Strand. The Legends Never Fade Celebrity Softball Game will be played Saturday, April 2 at 8 p.m. at Ticket Return Field and among the participants will be Reggie Sanders, Tony LaRussa, Eric Davis, Tony Womack, Andrew Junes, Brian Jordan, Bob Knight and many, many more. The lineup is impressive and so is the cause. Proceeds will benefit the Reggie Sanders Foundation, which helps fight autism and breaks down barriers for those impacted by it. Sanders is a great guy and this cause is worth supporting. Great seats are available for $20 and the former athletes and celebs will be signing autographs.  

3. Who wants to miss BaconFest?! On April 16, House of Blues will be hosting BaconFest 2016. Admission is free and food sampling tickets, which will get you all manner of bacon related dishes are $1. What more could you ask for on your golf trip than a bacon smorgasbord?!
