Grande Dunes Resort Course

2018-03-15T15:55:52+00:00

I played the Grande Dunes Resort Course a little while back, this in my opinion, is hands down one of the finest layouts in Myrtle Beach. Listening to golfer’s chatting in the clubhouse, I heard it mentioned on several occasions that they could play this course everyday and not get bored with it; such is the genius of this design. From the minute one tees it up on the nice square and level tee box on hole number one, you get the feeling that this golf course is going to be something special. Beautiful wide-open Bermuda grass fairways provide lies that anyone would love to hit off, the golf ball literally “sits up” and is so inviting to hit. The rough that borders the fairways is penalizing, but that’s what it's for, to punish errant tee shots. [...]

Dear Santa, I Want to be a Better Putter

2018-05-24T16:31:40+00:00

Can you imagine sitting in Santa’s lap and whispering in his ear, “I want to be a better putter”? Well, I figure if the elves are busy building the toys, Santa will have time to help improve my game so that is exactly what I did. That twinkle in his eye told me that I will get my wish,too. So, when Christmas morning came, I sneaked down to the Christmas tree and looked for a letter from Santa. I hoped and hoped that I would find something from him. At first, when I didn’t find anything I thought to myself, “Well, maybe he was too busy this year. But, I KNOW... I saw a twinkle in his eye!” So, I continued my search. Finally, I gave up and put on a pot of coffee and [...]

Rory McIlroy Playing Nike Clubs In 2013

2018-05-29T11:54:30+00:00

With a passionate and worldwide fan base that just can’t seem to get enough news about the “goings on” of their favorite players, there has been a bit of a media storm as of late about Rory McIlroy  playing Nike clubs in 2013. Most people outside of the golf community wouldn’t pay much attention to someone shifting from one equipment manufacturer to another. But, when you’re talking about something as essential as the “tools of the trade” in the golf world – and especially when a superstar of the sport is making the change – well, tongues will begin to wag! While much has been made about Rory McIlroy playing Nike and switching from his tried and true Titleist equipment, Rory himself doesn’t see it as that big of a shift Understanding that much has been made about his [...]

How To Hit Longer and Straighter Drives

2018-06-04T13:16:18+00:00

Welcome to Coastal Golfaway's "Coach's Corner". This time we will be talking about how you can increase how far you can drive a golf ball as  well as how to hit straighter drives. To hit a golf ball longer and straighter you will need to work on the action of your club and your stance as you address the ball. Your body should have a consistent language when it speaks to the ball. The slightest mishit can cause you to lose serious distance off of the tee.  The shorter you are off the tee, the more club you need to hit the green in regulation on your approach shot. How to handle the driver: First, you need to work on striking the ball with accuracy.  If you really want to get that ball to travel [...]

What Is The Longest Drive On Record In A PGA Tour Event?

2018-03-16T11:22:34+00:00

Among golfers there is an old adage that says that golfers should “Drive for show, putt for dough.” Golfers have done their best to live up to that, too. Golfers try to drive the ball as hard and as far as they can down the fairway to get as close to the putting green as they can. The longer the ball off of the tee, the more lofted club a golfer will need when making his approach shot to the green.   Think about your game...would you rather be hitting a wedge into the green or a 5 iron?  Which do you feel more comfortable with? Over the years it has become something of a competition to see who can hit the ball the farthest. Some go for the straightest shot they can make; others [...]

Visiting Myrtle Beach SC in the Fall

2018-06-07T14:19:04+00:00

Why You'll Prefer Visiting Myrtle Beach SC In The Fall Did you know that people oftentimes prefer visiting Myrtle Beach SC in the fall, as opposed to the summer or spring because of the abundance of activities outside of golf ? Although commonly referred to as, "The Golf Capital of the world," Myrtle Beach has a lot more to offer than just great golf courses.  While you may scratch your heads at this notion, don’t be so quick to write it off as total nonsense. This glorious coastal town may not harken back to those glorious times when the horizon takes the autumnal hues that signal the winter wind’s familiar bite is back and tanned faces fade to rosy cheek.  It does however, proudly offer warm sandy beaches, seemingly endless miles of gorgeous greens to tee off on and beautiful [...]

2018-03-16T11:44:54+00:00

Top 10 US Golf Destinations I (shamefully) admit, when it comes to planning a vacation, I typically plan around where and when I can play the most golf.  Yes its true, I am one of those obsessive golfers whose idea of a perfect, relaxing trip is hitting the links as often as possible.  One thing I always check out prior to scheduling a tee time is: check the various ratings of the course, both by professionals and by the folks who have played there before. Knowing A Course's Rating Is Beneficial Rating golf courses can be done based on various factors such as proximity to vacations sites, professional rankings of courses difficulty or ease, popularity, or even the quality of golf weather. You can even rate a golf course on how well courses are groomed [...]
