3 days in Myrtle Beach
Save money this spring on the Grand Strand
But perhaps the most attractive thing about Myrtle Beach remains its location, halfway down the eastern seaboard, a short flight from just about anywhere east of the Continental Divide. Plus, many discounted specials are available, and a trip to the area might be the perfect cure for your recession blues.

Spend your first day at the newly renovated Pine Lakes Country Club, home of the new Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame, which opened on March 14. Situated in Pine Lake’s new Hall of Fame Garden near the club’s refurbished clubhouse, the Hall of Fame will induct members of the golf community who helped to develop Myrtle Beach’s golf industry. (The inaugural group included architects, golfers and Myrtle Beach business leaders.)
After you stroll through the garden, tee it up on the recently renovated Pine Lakes Course. The Grand Strand’s first golf course opened its doors in 1927 and recently underwent a 20-month, $16 million restoration project headed by Myrtle Beach-based architect Craig Schreiner. After its makeover, Pine Lakes has returned to its early 20th century Scottish roots. One nine has been restored; another nine is brand-new.
