Golf Courses in Myrtle Beach with 27-Holes

Posted by : | On : Dec 28, 2012
World Tour Golf Links - 27 Holes

World Tour Golf Links is probably one of the most popular 27-hole courses in Myrtle Beach.

With over 80 golf courses along the Grand Strand there are plenty of high end and low end courses to fit every budget. However, one question that I am asked alot is “Where can we get an emergency nine in to play a captains choice / scramble”? Well that question is simple, why re-pack the car with clubs to drive to another golf course, when there our eleven golf courses on the Grand Strand with 27-holes.

Advantages to 27 Hole Courses

Courses with 27-holes has its advantages and disadvantages compared to a 18-hole facility. A few of the advantages are more players which in turns means more revenue for the golf course. Course maintenance issues may arise in terms of disease or even a water pipe breaks preventing irrigation. This allows the course to close one nine and still operate as an 18-hole facility.

Disadvantages to 27 Hole Courses

A few of the disadvantages is there are 27-holes. With 27-holes it cost more money for the golf course to operate on a daily basis. Golfers also want to frequently compare what are the best 18-hole combinations and try to set tee times up, however that may not be the combination operated by the golf course. One disadvantage that I find is that golf course owner / operators do not keep the right equipment to handle all 27-holes and operate on an 18-hole budget.
