The New Year is upon us and despite the cold weather many are experiencing, the spring golf season is beginning to appear much more clearly on the horizon.
While many people are on the front end of the planning process, shrewd group leaders book trips early, particularly here at Caledonia and our sister course, True Blue.
Why should you plan and book your trip ASAP?
— Booking early ensures you get the tee time you want, not the slot that is available. That is important, especially if you want to replay. The most popular tee times are between 8-9 a.m., and they fill quickly. The last times to book are the early morning slots, so if you don’t want a 7:30 a.m. tee time, book now.
— Many courses offers discounted rates for booking early, so you can actually save money with early planning.
— Golf trips are aspirational by nature, and Caledonia, a consensus top 100 public course according to Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golfweek, is one of the most desired rounds in Myrtle Beach. Knowing you have an 8:30 a.m. tee time on Friday, April 12 at Caledonia, will make a snowy 28-degree day on Friday, January 25 just a little easier to endure. Go ahead and book it.
— Organizing a golf trip is a labor of love, but make no mistake, there is labor involved. From finding a date that works to soliciting quotes and corresponding with everyone in the group, the person organizing your trip does more work behind the scenes than most people realize. The earlier you book, the easier it is for your group leader to work through any issues.
