If you’re planning a Myrtle Beach bachelor party, chances are you’ve got a weekend of water sports and golf adventures ahead. Not only is this Lowcountry vacation spot known for its beach and golf scene, but you’ll also find plenty of bars, clubs, and restaurants to round out your itinerary. From top-rated courses to endless outdoor activities, you’ll keep the groom-to-be busy with quality bro-time he’ll actually enjoy.
Whether you stick to the top attractions or go more off the beaten path, a Myrtle Beach bachelor party is a perfect choice for that last single guy getaway.
What to Do
Once you’ve made it to the South Atlantic Coast, don’t waste any time before seeking out the beach. Along the shoreline of Myrtle Beach State Park, you’ll find a 1-mile stretch of ocean and sand with an admission charge of just $5 a person. Beyond the beach, you can explore the state park and even stay at one of the 204 campsites set within the maritime forest.
Take advantage of even more sandy shores over in North Myrtle Beach, along with a selection of mini golf courses and the opportunity to see dangerous reptiles up-close at Alligator Adventure. Of course, if a more laid-back afternoon on the water fits your agenda, check out Cherry Grove Fishing Pier or charter a boat with North Myrtle Beach Fishing charters for some of the best saltwater fishing in the area.
A round of mini-golf is a Myrtle Beach bachelor party must (this place is the miniature golf capital of the world, after all) but there’s also plenty of full-scale courses to put on your list. The Dunes Golf & Beach Club is known for its incredible ocean views, not to mention rich history, and has even hosted several PGA tours.
Another great pick, the Tidewater Golf Club offers golfers a chance to play on a top-ranked course in South Carolina. They even offer comprehensive vacation packages so you can stay and play with one easy booking.
Honored as a best public course by GOLF Magazine and Golf Digest, you can’t go wrong with a tee time at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club. They also offer a number of seasonal vacation packages to simplify your bachelor party planning.
Mix it up from the leisurely itinerary with a trip to the Myrtle Beach Speedway. This place gives you the chance to ride shotgun or even get behind the wheel of a NASCAR race car for a few laps all by yourself.
Where to Eat
If you’re staying in the heart of Myrtle Beach, you can’t miss the hoopla of Broadway at the Beach. This tourist-heavy stretch is a centralized hub for shopping, eating, drinking, and nightlife. Grab a bite at the Hard Rock Cafe, and stick around for a bar crawl at favorites likes Broadway Louie’s and Senor Frog’s.
Of course, away from the tourist action, there’s no shortage of local gems to please any serious foodie. Fire and Smoke Gastropub serves up excellent steaks, burgers, and seafood in an upscale yet unpretentious atmosphere.
Another must-visit during your Myrtle Beach bachelor party, The Grumpy Monk is all about quality foods and local craft beer. They have 10 rotating taps sourced directly from the Carolinas at any given time. Bumstead's Pub will also please beer enthusiasts with an impressive selection of both domestic and imported brews on their menu.
Where to Stay
Outside of the popular “stay and play” golf packages, there are many great options for group accommodations during your Myrtle Beach bachelor party. Set right on the water, The Breakers Resort offers the ultimate oceanfront location to stay in the heart of it all. Made up of five towers, the property offers options to book one, two, three and four bedroom condos for comfortably fit everyone in your group.
Another top oceanfront pick, Compass Cove is one of the largest Myrtle Beach resorts with multi-bedroom condos and several pools, lazy rivers, and hot tubs situated throughout the property.
Located roughly a mile inland, the Myrtlewood Condos are set away from the crowded beachside stretch for a slightly quieter pace. Book a one, two, or three bedroom villa and you’ll enjoy the pools, lazy river, outdoor BBQ area, and two on-site golf courses.
