Spring Break Made Easy

We may be in the dead of winter but better weather and beautiful courses are just a trip away, and you know what’s coming up… Spring Break!
In just a few short months, it will be time to pack the wife, kids and clubs and get out of town. Let us help you start planning now with a quick look at a few family-friendly destinations below where the weather is warm, the only thing cold is your drink and where birdies come in bunches (hopefully)!
Myrtle Beach, S.C.
A little of everything here. Great golf at affordable prices and tons of family activities at the beach. Myrtle Beach is known as the Golf Capital of the U.S., making it a great place to get away and play a round.
Built upon the former site of a working southern rice plantation, Caledonia Golf and Fish Club in Myrtle Beach has been recognized for its design and beauty. Caledonia was ranked the “5th Best New Public Course in America” by Golf Digest when it opened in 1995 and it remains a great track. From the entrance lined with centuries-old oaks to its antebellum-style clubhouse, Caledonia is a memorable experience.
Hilton Head, S.C.
With 12 miles of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean, shopping, dining, family activities and tons of courses, Hilton Head is one of the foremost golf destinations in the U.S. The island is loaded with beautiful ocean-side courses, tough river-side courses and courses designed by some of the PGA TOUR’s most famous players.
Play The Golden Bear Club At Indigo Run when you are on the island, as it is the only Jack Nicklaus designed golf course on Hilton Head. The course has ever-present water and sand but it only keeps play interesting and is never overly penalizing. And a course that puts a premium on strategy and finesse, rather than sheer power, is one all players can enjoy.
Orlando as a family Spring Break destination needs little explaining. With all of the Walt Disney World theme parks, you could spend a good week here and do nothing else. Throw in Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld (plus nearby LEGOLAND Florida) and there are enough attractions with something to offer the whole family to keep you busy for days on end. Just make sure you find time to play some of the areas great golf courses.
Disney’s Palm Golf Course is one course to hit up while in Orlando. This 18-hole championship course features shimmering lakes, tropical sands, palm trees and sloping greens. With nine water hazards and 94 bunkers, golfers will find plenty of challenges regardless of skill level.
