If you are planning a golf vacation in Myrtle Beach then you'll need to either bring your own clubs or rent golf clubs in Myrtle Beach. With increased airline baggage fees it no longer makes much sense to fly golf clubs because you can rent great clubs for less than the one-way airline baggage fee.
Renting Golf Clubs from the Course or Off Course
Most golf courses offer some sort of golf club rental program but the cost is often $50-$60 per round, which can really add up when you might do 36 holes on different courses. Since the rental fee is based on a single round of golf, and the clubs need to stay at the course, this can mean multiple rentals in one day, and you never know what kind of clubs you will get. An older course might give out older clubs if they are running low that day. If there is a charity tournament on, all the clubs could be out.
The better and lower cost alternative that assures quality clubs is to rent from a specialized golf club rental agency in Myrtle Beach. There are several of these rental companies that will deliver your pre-booked clubs to your hotel or the golf course at a very reasonable price. Here are some options:
