How to book cheap golf at nice courses

Hi,

My wife and I are making our first trip to Myrtle Oct 13-21. I'm looking to play about 10-12 rounds of which half i would like to play the challenging top ranked courses. The other rounds I would like to find some cheaper intermediate courses for my wife who is just starting out and I. What is the best way to book discounted tee times? We don't like to pay regular price for golf (who does!) - max $50 pp a round or so. I heard hotels give out deals as well as special golf tour companies. So should I wait till we get there? What about booking on the courses' website. What about golfnow.com and other discount golf websites? I would like to focus on courses that also have special discounted same day replay options. Any specific course recommendations would be appreciated. In a nutshell, I guess I'm looking for the best strategy to book cheap golf at nice courses.

Thanks for any advice.

Your best bet is to have a golf concierge book your package for you. There are plenty of on-line groups that will set up your entire week. You get a discount, and they make money from the bookings. Here are a few examples:

If you want to book yourself, some of the best deals can be found in the local newspaper each day (The Sun News). Here is a link to some of the golf ads from the paper. Some very nice courses offering $29 specials right now. findnsave.thesunnews.com/rop/Subcat.aspx…

Definitely agree with using a packager, and the links above receive repeatedly good reviews.

While you might be able to save a few $$$ booking your own with coupons, the chances of getting good tee-times is pretty slim. Most coupons require you to book within 48hrs of tee-time.... that may be too late for October which can be busy.

Good luck.... let us know what courses you played and other fun details !

I would do it differently and handle things on my own, using a combination of the local paper and golfnow.com. Keep in mind it's going to be tougher finding the upper echelon courses for 50 based on the time of year u are going. For example two weekends ago played oyster bay for 50 with lunch and drinks included. Played the Witch for 35 a person. Won't come close to that in oct.

Buy a Myrtle Beach Golf Passport Card or a Prime Times Signature Card. Passport only $42 and your wife would get same rate as you. Primetime card around $200 but your wife would pay $2 more than you per course and you get $50 clubhouse merchandise coupon.Also every 5th round is free even on courses like Kings North and Grande Dunes.Right now there are 10 courses going for $32 with the card.Grande Dunes is $53,Pine Lakes $45 and River Club and Long Bay $42. Do the math to see if the Prime Time would work for you.
