Make Your Golf Travel a Breeze with Ship Sticks

2018-10-23T11:01:20+00:00

It’s never been easier to travel to the coastal Carolina region to play golf. With dozens of daily non-stop flights serving Myrtle Beach International Airport and Wilmington International Airport, arriving for your Grand Strand golf trip has never been more convenient. What’s not so simple, though, is the process of transporting your golf clubs from your hometown to the beach. If you’re flying, you’re understandably reluctant to pay more for an oversized bag, then worry about the hassle of lugging it in and out of the airport. Let’s not forget about an airport baggage handling process that’s not always “gentle.” Do you really want to subject your brand-new driver to that? We didn’t think so! And if you’re driving into town with your buddies, you don’t want to be crammed together like sardines because of [...]

Course Spotlight: Oyster Bay

2018-09-17T15:35:11+00:00

On any list of the North Strand’s best courses, Oyster Bay has to be somewhere near the top, and that is certainly the case here at Coastal Golfaway world headquarters. Celebrating its 35th birthday this year, the course is aging as well as Mila Kunis (also born in 1983) and offers stunning natural beauty, highlighted by several holes that play along the marshy waters of the Shallotte River. When taking a Myrtle Beach golf trip, we always encourage players to play at least one course that showcases the area’s coastal setting, and Oyster Bay does just that. There is water on 16 of 18 holes and for groups that want to enjoy the area’s native wildlife, an alligator sighting is very likely as well. Throw in island greens on holes 15 and 17, and Oyster [...]

Post-Round Flavor of the Month: Ciao! – An Italian Restaurant In Myrtle Beach

2018-07-09T10:18:01+00:00

The Myrtle Beach area is home to more than 1,500 restaurants, including nearly every chain that has a presence in the south, but what your group should pay attention to are the countless locally owned eateries. Hiding in stand-alone buildings and strip malls throughout the Grand Strand are largely anonymous restaurants waiting to be discovered by visitors in search of an outstanding meal. Ciao!, an Italian restaurant located near 52nd Avenue N. on Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach, is one of those places. You could drive by without noticing as there are no flashing signs to lure hungry golfers, but Ciao! is worth taking the time to find. The atmosphere, like nearly every restaurant along the beach, is casual but classy, and the food is homemade. All of Ciao’s sauces are made fresh daily and [...]
