A variety of factors play into deciding which golf package your group will choose for its next trip, but the PGA 5 from East Coast Golf Management likely has everything you and your buddies are looking for.
Starting at the top, the five-round package, which can be purchased with or without accommodations, includes a $100 gift card that can be used for food, merchandise, beverages and same-day replays.
The golf-only package can be purchased for less than $250 so the gift card merely pushes the value proposition from very good to ridiculously good.
But value is conveyed in ways other than price, and ultimately, it’s a great experience your group is seeking.
The PGA 5 package allows you to choose among 22 ECGM courses, including layouts like Rivers Edge and Crow Creek. Rivers Edge, an Arnold Palmer design, features several holes that play along the Shallotte River and some of the area’s most stunning views.
Crow Creek installed new bentgrass greens in 2017 and the results have been spectacular, bolstering what was already regarded as one of the area’s hidden gems.
Farmstead Golf Links is home to the Myrtle Beach area’s only par 6, the 767-yard 18th, a challenge Golf Digest ranked among America’s most fun holes to play.
Most of the PGA 5’s courses play along the north end – Thistle, Crow Creek, Pearl East and West, Rivers Edge, Beachwood, Sandpiper Bay, Brunswick Plantation, Eagle Nest, Crown Park, Meadowlands, Lockwood Folly, Azalea Sands, Diamondback and Brick Landing – but if your group prefers a more central or southern location, the package delivers there as well.
Wachesaw East, Blackmoor, International Club and River Oaks provide the PGA 5 with the geographic diversity many golfers seek.
This is a package that has steadily grown in popularity, and will continue to do so.
