Myrtle Beach Memories

I've been to Myrtle Beach a couple of times, thanks to my ex-boyfriend's family vacations.  They would invite me along on their annual Myrtle Beach getaways. We packed up the cars and left beautiful Floyd, Virginia in the morning and arrived at Myrtle Beach in the afternoon, ready to spend a fun-filled couple of days relaxing on the beach and enjoying the sights and sounds of Myrtle Beach.   Wow!  That place is really hopping and I loved it!
Now I live in Utah and those days are long gone.  I love my life here in Utah and wouldn't trade it for anything, but those memories linger in the "backroads of my memory, flowing ever gentle on my mind".  -Glen Campbell
I recently found out that Myrtle Beach is an amazing golf area.  I was so busy with the fun on the beach that golfing totally escaped me.  But, yeah, there are at least 84 golf courses in and around the Myrtle Beach Grand Strands area!  So if you like to golf, that is the place to do it! 
There are so many different scenarios to choose from--like the course right by the beach or the inland course full of trees and quaint bridges!
And don't forget disc golf! Socastee Rec Park has a beautiful 18 hole course with with holes ranging in length from 137 to 760 ft.
 Next time I go to Myrtle Beach, I will take advantage of some of these awesome golf courses, along with the awesome beach experience.

I have never played golf, but the darling little bridge on the course in your picture makes me rally want to even if I sneak off with a good book and just go sit on that bridge. So serene, beautiful, and peaceful looking.

I don't play golf, but my father does. He used to take yearly trips with his friends to Myrtle Beach from Virginia also and play all kinds of courses. His fave is The King's North course. I now live in Florence, SC and get to go to Myrtle quite often for shopping trips with my girls. The outlets are great and the dining and nightlife is even better. Some of my favorite memories are Spring Break in Myrtle Beach memories. Really enjoyed this post. Hope you get to come back to Myrtle one day! We now have a boardwalk and a GIANT Ferris wheel is being built as we speak!

MY ONLY ISSUE ABOUT TRAVELING IS THE GAS AND PLANE TICKET PRICES ARE TOO HIGH. OTHERWISE, I MIGHT ACTUALLY GO SOMEWHERE VERSES BEING STUCK HERE IN MICHIGAN! kytah00@yahoo.com
