Beginner Golf - Easiest Myrtle Beach Golf
Courses & Other Information! Are you a beginner golfer and yearning to join your buddies for a golf
vacation? In the case of beginner golf we would suggest you approach it
just like skiing - take a lesson first. You can't expect to go out and
hit a golf club properly anymore than you can buckle on a pair of skis
and come down that mountain. You can but you might be sorry.
Avoid the frustration and take a lesson. You might want to find an
instructor in your home town and get a few basics under your belt,
before you spend money on a golf vacation. You can also go to golf
school and immerse yourself as many players do for 2 or 3 days. Learn
the basic golf rules and realize that their is an etiquette to be
followed while playing. It also helps to have the right set of clubs, (read
more about golf clubs here), they make for a much better experience
that using hand-me-downs or just the ones on sale at your local sporting
goods store...And for learning the proper way to swing these golf clubs,
take a look at our
golf swing basics page.
If you have already played a few games of golf and feel you're ready to
take off with the guys for some R & R and a serious golf package, we
have several courses that appeal to beginner golfers, with wide open
fairways and big greens so you can keep the ball in play. Read on as to
what we think are the best
A great way to judge a golf course is of course by the slope rating. A
slope rating, in case you didn't know, is a number arrived at by
examining the length of the course, the size and flatness of the greens,
the number of bunkers, forced carries and other determining factors.
What to look for in a beginner friendly golf course. First inkling is to
look for a shorter course. Yardage from the white tees is usually the
shortest distance for length of course. Also check out the slope, you
should be able to enjoy a game on a course with a slope from about 112
to 120. When you get above that 120 mark, the course will be tougher.
We have several courses we recommend for our beginner's golf package,
they include The 18-hole "West" course at the Myrtle Beach National Golf
Course with a slope rating of 119. The Fazio golf course at
Barefoot is 119 Slope. Blackmoor Golf club out on Route 707 has a
slope of 119. both River club and The Tradition come in at 122,
which makes for just a little more challenge, but worth it.
Sandpiper Bay up in North Carolina, a course that is great for
anyone looking for an easy day on the course. Island Green in Murrells
Inlet with a slope of 118 from the white tees will give you a fun and
easy game. Wicked Stick, (sounds wicked) but is actually not too bad at
The Witch over 707 in Conway is another good one to fit in with
it's 109 slope.
Beachwood up on the North end of Myrtle Beach is player friendly
with a slope of 117 from the white tees. We also highly recommend
Possum Trot which has been a great favorite since 1968. Don't be
fooled by it's age, it has been totally redone and is a sheer delight to
Slope of 118.
