  • Making friends through golf: The Canadian Connection

    Canadians love Myrtle Beach, S.C., and the entire Grand Strand from Pawley’s Island to Southport. Many visit annually. Some even own vacation homes here because playing golf in February is not an option in Ontario. When the snows fall and cold winds blow, the Carolina Coast seems like a veritable paradise.
    The Grand Strand is often called the Golf Capital of the World. We have a year-round temperate climate, more than 100 great public golf courses. In addition, we have great restaurants, wonderful fishing, outstanding shopping and a fabulous beach.
