Title: Fun in the Fairways: Kid-friendly South Carolina Golf Resorts for Ultimate Family Vacations

When it comes to bonding over birdies and handicaps, South Carolina – my home state – boasts an impeccable offering of resorts perfect for family golf vacations. Tucked away in stunning landscapes and endowed with family-friendly amenities, they offer an ideal retreat for parents wishing to indulge in teeing off without leaving the kids behind. Here’s my rundown on the best kid-friendly golf resorts in the Palmetto State.

The first stop on our tour is Myrtle Beach, a haven for golfers and families alike. Home to 60 miles of sandy coastline, the Grand Strand comprises over 100 world-renowned golf courses alongside family-oriented accommodations. One such gem is the Legends Golf Resort. This destination is a trifecta of golf, relaxation, and family-friendly entertainment. It boasts three acclaimed golf courses, a gigantic Ailsa pub—modelled after Scotland’s famous hotel at Turnberry, a 30-acre lighted practice facility, and pools for the kids. This place ensures even the smallest members of the family enjoy their stay with exciting amenities like a game room, playground, and an array of activities for different age groups.

Another awe-inspiring golf-centered retreat is the Myrtlewood Villas. Perfectly positioned on 378 acres of mesmerizing landscapes, this resort offers two scenic golf courses – Palmetto and Pine Hills, designed to accommodate golfers of all skill levels. The resort also promises a kid-approved vacation featuring indoor/outdoor pools, jacuzzis, a lazy river, and a dedicated kiddie splash area. Its location also provides easy access to Myrtle Beach downtown, where attractions like Ripley’s Aquarium, Broadway at the Beach, and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk await for additional family fun.

Hilton Head Island brings a unique charm to South Carolina’s golf scene. Renowned for its invigorating combination of golf and coastal beauty, Hilton Head is home to the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. A family paradise, it hosts three distinguished golf courses, each offering an immersive experience with its unique coastal touch. The Robert Trent Jones course, the George Fazio course, and Arthur Hills course each provide different challenges and natural beauty to admire. The resort also ensures your little ones stay engaged with varied activities like fishing, kayaking, tennis, and bikes for exploration. Their Island Adventure program offers kids different exploratory, educational and recreational activities, providing parents ample time to enjoy on the greens without worry.

Last but certainly not least, the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, situated thirty miles south of historic Charleston, is a world unto itself. Its five championship golf courses, including the famous Ocean Course, site of the 2021 PGA Championship, place it as an unbeatable golf destination. Kids have just as much to look forward to as adults here. The Kiawah Kids Camp offers diverse programs like nature walks, arts and crafts, beach games and more. The resort even provides complimentary door-to-door transport service for Kids Camp, and Night Heron Park offers a beautiful pool complex and playground for memorable family outings.

An honorable mention goes to Barefoot Resort & Golf in North Myrtle Beach. With four high-ranking golf courses and numerous kid-friendly activities nearby, it completes my recommendations for golf centric family vacations in South Carolina.

In conclusion, South Carolina is an unparalleled playground for golf lovers and their families. Our golf resorts embrace the sport’s spirit while acknowledging the need for a comprehensive family vacation. The end mix is a memorable trip that caters to everyone’s likes and interests. Be it the coastal charm of Hilton Head, the grandeur of Myrtle Beach, or the tranquil beauty of Kiawah Island, South Carolina’s golf resorts will make your family vacation an unforgettably priceless experience.

So, pack up the golf kits, bring along the kids, and hit the road to the unmistakable charm and hospitality of one of South Carolina’s fabulous family-centric golf resorts where memories await to be crafted on and off the greens.

    Great post! My family had a blast at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort – our kids couldn’t get enough of the nature walks and beach games. A question for fellow golfing parents – how do you balance your golf time with family time while on such vacations? Any tips would be appreciated!

    As someone who’s always looking to improve his swing – but also wants his kids entertained – this post is a hole in one! Looking forward to booking a trip to one of these resorts. Decision, decision…

  3. Thorough reviews! We’ve been to Hilton Head Island’s Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort and can vouch for its beauty. The kids loved the Island Adventure program while I enjoyed the golf. Hitting fairways with such breathtaking views is quite an experience!

    Great rundown on family-friendly golf resorts in SC. Having had good experiences with Myrtlewood Villas, I can vouch for the kid’s facilities and the onsite golf courses. But you forgot to mention their top-notch BBQs, it’s a hit with my kids. Can’t wait to try the other spots. Thanks for this!

  5. Interesting read! South Carolina really seems to make for an ideal golfing vacation. The Myrtle Beach locations sound perfect. I’m intrigued by the Legends Golf Resort. Three golf courses AND a 30-acre practice facility? Sign me up!

  6. Really enjoyed your piece here! But I’ve got a question. I am a golf pro with a wife and two kids who prefer the beach over the greens. Now, I love my golf, and I know Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head Island come highly recommended, but can you rate them on a scale for golf AND beach activities? It would make the negotiation process with my family a lot easier! Cheers!

  7. Love this! Any family-friendly golf resorts that also cater to beginner golfers? My husband’s a pro, I’m a newbie, and we’ve got two kiddos to entertain. Recommendations much appreciated!
