3 Times the Fun: Ohio Golfers Enjoy Nonstop Flight Service to Myrtle Beach From 3 Cities

MYRTLE BEACH, SC--(Marketwired - April 20, 2015) - Spring is a time of optimism and renewal for everyone, and Ohio golfers are enjoying an abundance of both this year.

Golfers living in and around Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland are benefitting from the launch of nonstop flight service to Myrtle Beach this April, opening the fairways of America's most popular golf destination to residents of the Buckeye State.

This will mark the first time Ohio's three largest cities have simultaneously enjoyed nonstop service to Myrtle Beach, a luxury that turns a 10+ hour drive into a short flight. All three routes feature flight times that provide a late afternoon return from Myrtle Beach, allowing a day of departure round of golf.

Spirit Air launched its new nonstop service from Cleveland to Myrtle Beach on April 16, giving golfers a chance to enjoy the Grand Strand's peak spring season. 

The flight originates out of Cleveland at 2:20 p.m. and arrives in Myrtle Beach at 4:02 p.m. The return flight departs Myrtle Beach International Airport at 5:05 p.m. and lands in Cleveland at 6:48 p.m.

Allegiant Air provides nonstop flights from Columbus and Cincinnati. The Columbus route began on April 9 with a 4:31 p.m. flight that arrived in Myrtle Beach at 5:56 p.m. Golfers leave Myrtle Beach at 6:36 p.m. and arrive home at 8:07 p.m.

The Cincinnati route, which began on April 10, leaves the Queen City at 2:31 p.m. and arrives in Myrtle Beach at 3:59. The return flight departs the Grand Strand at 4:39 p.m. and returns home at 6:17 p.m.

The new flights provide an ideal conduit between Myrtle Beach and one of its primary feeder states. Ohio golfers have long flocked to the Grand Strand to enjoy good times on and off the course.

Myrtle Beach is home to more than 50 4-star courses, according to Golf Digest, and 13 area layouts have been ranked among the nation's top 100 public courses in recent years.

Courses like the Dunes Golf & Beach Club, Grande Dunes, the layouts at Barefoot Resort and Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, provide golfers the opportunity to play some of the best courses America has to offer.

The combination of quality and value are the twin forces that drove readers of USA Today and 10Best to vote Myrtle Beach the best golf destination.

The stay and play package was invented and perfected in Myrtle Beach, and it remains the backbone of countless buddy trips each year.

Among the area's most popular golf packages for the spring of 2015 are:

  • The Ultimate Glens package features eight rounds of golf for the price of three and includes free lunch each day at the course. Golfers that play Heather Glen, Glen Dornoch and Shaftesbury Glen receive a free morning round at Possum Trot, and free pre-booked replays at each course. Accommodations are at the Village at the Glens condos at Heather Glen.
  • The North 4 is No. 1 in the hearts of many golf groups. Featuring golf at Rivers Edge, Carolina National, Sandpiper Bay and Crow Creek, the package is long on quality and value. Everyone that books the deal also receives a $100 gift card redeemable for food, beverage, merchandise and/or replays, and free pre-booked replays at Carolina National. Condos are at Crow Creek, providing a convenient location.
  • Legends Resort's 5 Fore 4 deal has been, arguably, the most popular package in America in recent years. Groups that book a four-night, four-round package at Legends receive an extra night and round for free. The five host courses are the Heathland, Moorland and Parkland layouts at Legends and their sister courses Oyster Bay and Heritage. All five are outstanding and the package also includes a daily breakfast buffet, lunch, two free drinks daily, unlimited range balls and an Ailsa Pub voucher.
  • The Prime Times Rewards package allows golfers to craft a package choosing from 22 courses for a four-night, four-round package. The golf course options feature some of the area's best, including Grande Dunes, King's North and Pawleys Plantation, and trip perks that are unmatched. Every player who books a four-round golf package also receives a $100 gift card that can be used in the pro shop, snack bar, beverage cart or even on replays. Groups that play at selected resorts also receive gift cards for $20 PGA Tour Superstore and $15 at Carrabba's.

As Ohio golfers emerge from their winter hibernation, the game's best and most welcoming destination is poised to deliver the best value and buddy trip experience golf has to offer.
