Are you planning your next family vacation to Holden Beach? Though relaxing on the beach and enjoying your favorite meal at a local restaurant likely rank up at the top of your vacation to-do list, we want to make sure you know that Brunswick County is home to over 30 golf courses!
If you love golfing, this reference list may help you find a course nearby that becomes your new favorite Holden Beach destination.
Golfing in Holden Beach
Because of our moderate climate year-round, you can enjoy golfing all year long conveniently near Holden Beach, though you may find it the most enjoyable during our mild spring and fall seasons. If you are planning to golf a round or two during your summer vacation, you may opt for early morning tee times to beat the heat, while you may need a hat or gloves on a few of the colder winter days.
If you are traveling by plane or have limited space in your vehicle, don’t worry! Many of the golf courses in the area offer golf club rentals and pro shops to purchase supplies. All you have to do is get here.
