Golf Course Conditions: What To Expect In The Summer
Course Conditions: What to Expect In The Summer
Ah summer, where the days are long and the weather is sweet and hot in Myrtle Beach, SC. The Grand Strand is a favorite vacation spot from families to golfers due to the abundance of activities one can choose from. With more than 90 golf courses and thousands of miles of white sandy beaches, Myrtle Beach has become a favorite vacation spot for new and long time visitors.
Summer is a great time to play golf in Myrtle Beach. Not only will golfers find less crowded courses during the summer months, but also many courses will offer low rates, special packages and kids play free promotions. Golfers can beat the heat by playing early and still have the afternoon to spend with family and friends.
Golfers visiting with their families or buddies will most likely carve out some vacation time to hit the links. Before going to the course this summer, golfers may want to check course conditions as the summer months have become a popular time for golf courses to improve their course conditions. Improvements may take a couple of days to a couple of months, which might include aerification or switching from one type of green to another.
The two main grasses courses use are Bent and Bermuda. Bent grass becomes high maintenance in the hotter months, needing a lot more TLC to keep the greens looking and playing great. Bermuda grass offers players with a much more favorable playing condition year-round, which is why many southeast golf courses are making investments to change their greens to Bermuda.
A Myrtle Beach vacation either way is going to be great fun and many memories will be made. Hopefully, a few of those memories will be on the golf course, one with outstanding playing conditions. And don’t forget to contact The Glens Golf Group for all of your golf and accommodation needs.
