Girlfriends Getaways and Golf at the Glens
These days girls still just want to have fun. Whether it’s for a weekend or a week, women are breaking away from the hectic pace of their jobs and families and recharging their batteries with golf-centered girlfriends getaways.
For those planning girlfriends getaways that revolve around great golf courses, fantastic food and entertainment, and abundant shopping opportunities, the Grand Strand area of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is the perfect location.
There are many women-friendly courses in Myrtle Beach, but if you’re looking for the total getaway package, plan your girlfriends getaways with the Glens Golf Group. The Glens Golf Director can customize a stay-and-play package that offers great discounts on play at all Glens courses, free range balls, complimentary breakfast and discounted replays.
The Village at the Glens is the ideal home away from home for enjoying the scenic and women-friendly Glens courses — Heather Glen, Glen Dornoch, Possum Trot and Shaftesbury Glen. The Village has an on-site putting green and a practice facility nearby at Heather Glen. And after a day of golf, there’s nothing more refreshing than a dip in the on-site pool.
Another great place to stay at the Glens is Shaftesbury Suites. Imagine yourself waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the golf course and then walking out the front door to begin a round of golf at Shaftesbury Glen. Now that’s a golfers dream come true.
When planning your trip to Myrtle Beach, tee times can be arranged that will fit in with lots of Myrtle Beach activities during your fun-filled vacation in South Carolina. The Glens Golf Group has an excellent stable of courses to choose from – all women-friendly with gorgeous scenery. There’s Heather Glen, 27 holes showcasing the natural beauty of the land with ever-changing elevations, gigantic 100-year-old pines, colorful dogwoods, heather-laced dunes and winding streams, and Glen Dornoch with its panoramic views of the Intracoastal Waterway, fairways that roll naturally over the coastal terrain, and 18 holes that are enhanced by spectacular marsh and river views. Golf Digest named it one of the top courses for women. There is also Shaftesbury Glen Golf & Fish Club which runs along South Carolina’s beautiful Waccamaw River. Possum Trot is known as the “Friendliest Course On The Beach.” It has spacious fairways and awesome par 5′s, as well as immaculately manicured greens and spectacular flower displays.
While you’re here for your golf vacation, take advantage of all there is to do in Myrtle Beach. Of course, you won’t want to miss out on Myrtle Beach’s most popular attraction —- the beach. Enjoy an afternoon of soaking up the sun or playing in the surf before heading out for an evening of dining and Myrtle Beach nightlife.
There are many attractions in Myrtle Beach, but be sure to make time for a visit to La Belle Amie Vineyard, an operating vineyard that features concerts and other events. It’s just minutes away in Little River. Spend an afternoon sampling wines, relaxing in a comfortable lawn chair, and enjoy music during a Vineyard festival.
If you’re looking for other things to do in Myrtle Beach — think shopping. The Grand Strand area has everything from outlet malls to upscale shopping. Bargain hunters will love the flea markets around the area and two Tanger Outlet Centers. Other shopping options include the Market Common, Broadway at the Beach, and Barefoot Landing.
No girls getaway trip to Myrtle Beach would be complete without a visit to Lori’s Golf Shop. This unique golf shop is located nearby in Calabash, North Carolina, just a few minutes drive from the Village at the Glens. From clubs, bags and golf equipment to an extensive line of golf apparel in a variety of sizes that fit anyone from the petite to the full-figured lady, this is a “must visit” for any true woman golfer.
Comfortable accommodations, the beach, shopping, dining, and nightlife — the makings for fun-filled girlfriends getaways. So ladies, now’s the time to start planning a trip to Myrtle Beach and the Glens.
