With daytime temperatures reaching the 50s and 60s, there’s no reason not to get out and hit a few balls while you’re visiting the coast. Many courses drop the prices during the offseason to attract more players, so take advantage of winter golf packages for your next trip.

Here are some of the best golf courses within minutes of North Beach Resort that you should definitely try this winter:
As Rees Jones’ first design, this is a must-try course for any fan of the sport. Arcadian Shores features strategically placed bunkers and elevated greens to challenge any skilled golfer, and the selection of tee boxes helps everyone find their swing. Since this course is only 10 minutes from North Beach Resort, it’s the perfect first stop for a day of golf—and a convenient place to return to again and again.
The multi-course Barefoot Resort and Golf Club offers four different courses within eight minutes of North Beach Resort, all of which were designed by legends of the game. Those who understand the pitfalls a Dye design can bring will be excited by this beautiful—yet perilous—course. The seven-hole Norman course framed by natural grasses and the Intracoastal Waterway affords shot options adventurous golfers appreciate. Teeming with Lowcountry character, the Love course incorporates the ruins of an old plantation home along four holes, and both skilled and average golfers find the wide fairways playable. Live oaks, sand, and beautiful landscaping frame the Fazio course at Barefoot Resort; use the tee box for your skill level to enjoy a fantastic time on the links.
Azalea Sands is a gorgeous, highly playable 18-hole course in North Myrtle Beach, only 10 minutes from North Beach Resort. Unlike most golf courses around, Azalea Sands’ fairways aren’t lined by homes or condos, and in the winter months, you’ll think you have the greens all to yourself. If you’re staying at North Beach Resort through the offseason, spring for the snowbird membership to replay Azalea again and again.
Located between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, Beachwood Golf Club in North Myrtle Beach is an oasis for golfers just 10 minutes from North Beach Resort. Those looking for more casual fairways find Beachwood to be one of the most playable courses around. The full-service driving range and practice facility with bunkers, a chipping area, and expansive greens let you warm up or reimagine a shot you can’t get out of your head.
Stay at North Beach Resort surrounded by award-winning courses to make any golfer’s dream vacation a reality. Wake up to the sun rising over the shore and grab an early tee time to play many holes before dusk. With whirlpool tubs and spacious living areas, the condos at North Beach Resort serve as a relaxing reprieve after a long day out. And if your muscles (or ego) need soothing, look no further than Cinzia Spa. Enjoy dinner at 21 Main Steakhouse to celebrate another fantastic winter golf getaway in the books.
