Wow, a "poor" college student can afford to pay between 150 and 200 dollars (or was the the total budget for the three rounds?). Anyway, I certainly don't consider $150 for a round of golf to be cheap. My conception of reasonable is about $40 for a round in a resort area.

I'm not that old, but I have to say that I find it amazing what people fancy to be good deals nowadays.

Just wanted to say thanks, Tim, for responding to my post. That first sentence was quite a surprise. I never expected for anyone to actually write an article based on my question. I think it's great that you helped not only me, but my fellow poor college students find good golf value in Myrtle Beach. Since I'm staying in the heart of Myrtle I'm thinking of playing one north course (I'm still torn between Thistle, River's Edge, Oyster Bay, and Tiger's Eye) and two courses closer to where we're staying. I'm really looking forward to my trip and I really appreciate your help. Thanks a lot.


Oh, and Judge Smails, that was my budget for all three rounds. I don't know anyone who would claim to be a poor student and then ask where they can find $200 green fees. But hopefully you'll be able to sleep knowing that at least some of America's youth still has some sense when it comes to money.

Mike,

Have a great time. I can tell you this: Pawley's Plantation was offering some great deals when I was last in Myrtle Beach, but this was about two years ago. They told me that they lowered their fees because they had suffered some damage to the greens. However, I found the greens to be fine.

PP is a Nicklaus design course and is a nice layout. As I implied, though, the fees may be higher now. I think it was only $25 with a cart when I was there.
