Tips for Doing Business on the Golf Course in Myrtle Beach

While travelers may be all business when it comes to making deals, there's no reason that savvy entrepreneurs can't mix pleasure with business on the golf course. And people within a two-hour radius of Myrtle Beach have their choice of some of the finest courses in the country. Once you finish a round of golf -- or two or three -- you can finalize your deal with a great meal in a private room at a premier restaurant.

Top Courses

Play where the world's best golfers have teed off. Home of the PGA Professional National Championship in June 2014, The Robert Trent Jones designed Dunes Golf & Beach Club course is ranked among the best in the country. Also available through courtesy reciprocity with your home club are courses south of Myrtle Beach, including Wachesaw Plantation Club in Murrells Inlet and Caledonia Golf & Fish Club at Pawleys Island.

Seal the Deal

Walking or riding a golf course is not the ideal place to pull out paper and pens to initial a deal, but if the club facilities don't suffice, enjoy hospitality in the private room at the Sea Captain's House. Two private upstairs rooms seat 16 comfortably, plus you can dine on some of the best seafood on the beach.

Stay to Play

You don't need to rush back. Spend a night or two at a premium boutique hotel to celebrate. Stretch out in your room or suite at the Marina Inn at Grand Dunes. You can view the Intracoastal from your balcony. Or, if you prefer the south end, take a look at the Inlet Sports Lodge. Both are a little off the main roads and are designed with quiet in mind.
