Myrtle Beach Golf Courses Report Slumping Spring

According to the Alan Blondin of Myrtle Beach's Sun News, "The Grand Strand couldn't match its record number of paid rounds played in the spring of 2004, but still recorded a relatively successful spring in 2005."

Myrtle Beach golf course owners shouldn't worry about these slumping numbers too much. This spring's numbers were still the fourth best besides 2004, 2000 and 1997.

What is a down year in the Myrtle Beach golf market?

In the months of March, April and May, golfers played 1.36 million played rounds of Grand Strand golf.

Here's a tip to remember for next spring in Myrtle Beach. It seems that the last three weeks of May continue to show a decline in rounds of golf played. If this continues, Myrtle Beach golf courses and Myrtle Beach golf package providers might begin to offer deeper discounts and incentives to bring golfers back to the Grand Strand.

Keep in mind that these weeks usually host a couple of "bike weeks" and you will have to deal with a few traffic issues. Other than that, it sounds like the golf courses in Myrtle Beach are a little less crowded.

Here's a note about another site update. We just started a new section under our Golf Resources umbrella. This section is called - Play Better Golf.

The first page added to this section is our guide to improving your game with the right exercise program to improve the biomechanics of the golf swing.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend. An extra day off work means an extra day of golf!
