Golf Vacations - - ChipShots -

Myr­tle Beach, S.C. - Myr­tle Beach Golf Trips is of­fer­ing its pop­u­lar Aza­lea Golf Pack­age again in 2017. The pack­age pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence pop­u­lar golf cour­ses and en­joy two mem­o­rable as­pects of The Mas­ters tour­na­ment in Au­gusta, Ga. - spec­tac­u­larly beau­ti­ful ma­ture aza­leas in bloom and the event’s fa­mous pi­mento cheese sand­wiches. The first of golf’s four “ma­jors,” The Mas­ters is set for April 6 through 9 this year, and the Aza­lea Golf Pack­age be­ing of­fered by Myr­tle Beach Golf Trips will be avail­able April 3 through June 4, 2017.

The Aza­lea Golf Pack­age starts at $178 for a three-round pack­age that in­cludes golf booked be­fore 8 a.m. or af­ter 1 p.m. at Litchfield Coun­try Club, Will­brook Plan­ta­tion Golf Club and Tradition Golf Club cour­ses in Paw­leys Is­land, S.C.

Dur­ing the spring, the three cham­pi­onship golf cour­ses are some of the most beau­ti­ful along the Grand Strand with col­or­ful aza­leas and other flow­er­ing plants through­out. In ad­di­tion, Litchfield Coun­try Club will also be of­fer­ing The Mas­ters sig­na­ture pi­mento cheese sand­wiches, a pop­u­lar item among The Mas­ters’ pa­trons dur­ing tour­na­ment week.

“Myr­tle Beach is the per­fect stop­ping point for golfers go­ing to or com­ing from The Mas­ters,” said Steve Mays, di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing and sales for Founders Group In­ter­na­tional. “Our fair­ways are lush and our aza­leas are huge, ri­val­ing the beauty of those through­out Au­gusta. So a stop here is a great way to soak up The Mas­ters spirit and en­joy an early spring va­ca­tion.”

One of the most pop­u­lar cour­ses on the Grand Strand, Litchfield Coun­try Club is filled with South­ern charm. Built on the site of a for­mer rice plan­ta­tion, it is the old­est course in the laid-back Litchfield/Paw­leys Is­land area of the Grand Strand, hav­ing cel­e­brated its 50th an­niver­sary in 2016. Its ma­jes­tic whitecolumned club­house fea­tures el­e­gant stair­ways lead­ing to a cov­ered porch lined with rock­ers, and in spring, its walk­ways are ablaze with spec­tac­u­lar blooms on mas­sive, decades-old aza­leas.

Con­sis­tently rated one of the Myr­tle Beach area’s most scenic golf cour­ses, Will­brook Plan­ta­tion fea­tures an abun­dance of wa­ter­fowl and other wildlife as its lush fair­ways weave among cen­turies-old moss-draped oaks and gi­ant aza­leas. Opened in 1988, its 18 holes are on his­toric rice plan­ta­tion land in use since the 1770s.

Tradition Golf Club was nom­i­nated for best New Pub­lic Course by Golf Digest when it opened 22 years ago. It has also been rec­og­nized as a South Carolina Golf Course of the Year. Ac­cented by col­or­ful aza­leas and other bloom­ing plants, Tradition of­fers a “Mega Prac­tice Com­plex” that is the per­fect place to warm up be­fore a round.
