Tips for Playing Golf on Vacation

You can see this would be a beautiful place to work on your golf game. Here’s some advice for those who bring their clubs on a beach escape.

  1. You needn’t go far

If you’re a Carolinian, or from neighboring states, why go far to play? Make the drive to Pawleys Island and tee it up on some of the nation’s best golf courses.

  1. Protect your clubs

Invest in a travel cover to keep your sticks safe. Ballistic nylon gives ultimate protection, whether you’re coming by car or airplane.

  1. Involve the family

Do the spouse and kids want to see a matinee while you play? Invite them to hit balls with you on the range first. Why knows? They might catch the bug.
