St. Nick won’t be the only person busy on Christmas Day, as some golfers on the Grand Strand are sure to take advantage of some courses being open for play and a weather forecast that calls for a high near 80 degrees, little chance of rain and minimal wind.
Arrowhead Country Club and River Oaks Golf Club in Myrtle Beach, Beachwood Golf Club in North Myrtle Beach, Eagle Nest Golf Club in Little River, Indigo Creek Golf Club in Murrells Inlet, and Rivers Edge Golf in Shallotte, N.C., are among the courses that will be open on Friday.
Most or all of those courses will have special hours. At Arrowhead, times will be available from 8-10 a.m. and combined green/cart fees will be $39. Players can book rounds through a golf package provider or pay at the course.
Some courses will allow free golf with open gates but no staff working. It will be worth a phone call in advance to see if specific courses will be available for play.
