Coming down for World Am for first time with wife who doesn’t play golf. I would prefer to be centrally located for courses (are more courses north or south? should I stay central?, etc.), near the convention center for the 19th hole and also near shopping area, boardwalk, etc. for wife. Wife needs a good pool area as she cannot walk on beach due to problems with her foot. Can anyone give me any recommendations. Would be most appreciative.April 12, 2017 at 3:36 pm #38103Bob WhittingtonParticipant
Your best bet is to stay central, no farther than N. Myrtle Beach. You will have at least one course in North Carolina, one south (possibly way south like Pawley’s Island area) and the other two either south, central or north of the convention center. Broadway at the beach is a few minutes from the convention center. I’m sure other people will have actual places they will recommend to stay.April 12, 2017 at 3:40 pm #38104Bob WhittingtonParticipant
I forgot, I always stay at the Barefoot Resort, they have lots of condos and golf villas. Plus you are close to HWY 31 which is lightly traveled compared to HWY 17.April 13, 2017 at 12:17 pm #38110
I’ve always liked the area from around 62nd Avenue North and 77th Avenue North. This area has many hotels/ condo resorts to choose from that are right on the water. My wife who doesn’t play (yet) always likes to be oceanfront. It’s about 12 minutes to the convention center from this area, restaurant row is close by and there is even the Cane Patch Driving Range in the neighborhood for any mid tourney swing tune-us. Traffic is a bit nicer in this area than downtown….there are quick routes to the highways that can get you moving to the out of the way courses quickly.April 13, 2017 at 12:30 pm #38112Ryan StratulateParticipant
We enjoy the central location of Breakers. Walking distance to the CC, 45 mins from furthest golf course, short cab ride to broadway, lots of pool space.April 13, 2017 at 12:38 pm #38113Harry (The Hack) RadleyParticipant

Ten (or more) year vet and I am looking for some recommendations on where to stay this year. Minimum requirements for a 3 bedroom condo are:
2. Oceanfront bar (& grill a plus).
3. kid friendly with at least 1 water slide.
4. hot tubs and pools (lazy river a plus)
So far, the only place I have stayed at that meets all these requirements is the Caribbean Resort. Wasn’t a bad experience….just okay. Any place with those four plus either a sauna or steam room (or both) would be a plus.
Other places I have stayed in the past are Grande Shores, Prince Resort and Long Bay. All nice in their own way. All have the 3 bedroom condos available, but none had all 4 of the requirements…unless water slides have been added.
Would appreciate a little help identifying candidates for me to check out.April 17, 2017 at 11:59 am #38142
Oh, 2 bedroom, 2 bath with a murphy bed or sofa sleeper would also work. If anyone know of such a place that meets the 4 requirements above, thanks.April 18, 2017 at 11:51 am #38150Jay SeifertParticipant
Seawatch Resort is located directly on the beach. It has 12 Hot Tubs, 2 lazy rivers, five swimming pools, an outside Tiki Hut for refreshments adjacent to one of the pools at the north tower. My 2 bedroom/2 bath also has two double beds in the 2nd bedroom & a sofa sleeper. I do use it during this week and typically bring up to four guys so each has our own beds. It’s located off lakeshore drive so there is a Wal-Mart about a mile away and the intersection to 22 & subsequently 30 for shortcuts to and from the south an north sides are easy access.April 20, 2017 at 11:33 am #38186
I’ve considered that place for years, Jay. Looks good….has all but the water slide. Is there a large kiddie pool attraction and extra long lazy river to make up for no water slide?April 20, 2017 at 4:34 pm #38188Jay SeifertParticipant
Terry no waterslide but there are two separate lazy rivers. No segregation of adults to kids pools or anyhting like that though. Here is a link to their site that gives you a good view of the property in advance of booking. I do know that they are replacing one of the elevators in the South Tower between now and June and then a second one in October but there are two separate stack’s of elevators for the South Tower (2 elevators in one stack & 2 elevators in a separate stack slightly closer to the pools)

Well, I selected the Beach Cove Resort, oceanfront near Barefoot Landing. My wife always insists on being “on the water.” The place seems to have a lot going on the kids will enjoy while we’re out on the courses. Bit pricier than some other places, but rated highly on Trip Advisor and the kids will be happy. Hope I made a wise selection.June 8, 2017 at 9:05 am #38598John CossaboomParticipant
Terry, I’ve also stayed at Beach Cove. You won’t be disappointed.June 8, 2017 at 2:36 pm #38599
Thanks, Boomer. Always nervous when you’re trying out a new place…don’t wanna score Roach and Bedbug City. The more I learn about Beach Cove, the more I’m getting excited to check in there. I like that it is so near to Barefoot Landing. House of Blues is callin’ my name already.
