Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Myrtle Beach was invented for bachelor parties. In fact, it may be in the city charter. The sheer number of young women of the professionally exhibitionist kind is matched only by the quantity of golf courses. New York Weddings magazine recommended it as a top last-bash party spot.
Masters Club (1901 10th Avenue N., tel. 843-916-0972) is the largest gentlemen’s club in the area. Golfers get half off the price of drinks or two-for-one if you show your scorecard. It also has a pro shop and an outdoor short course if you can tear yourself away from the show.
Masters also loves golfers on bachelor parties. “What we’ll do is we’ll comp (the future groom) and everybody in his party at the door,” said Manager Michael McMahon.
You won’t have problems finding a place to eat in Myrtle Beach; there are around 1,800 restaurants. Try Dick’s Last Resort (www.dickslastresort.com, 4700 Hwy. 17 S, tel. 843-272-7794) for beer, wings and barbecue chicken in a bucket.
For golf, a canopy of ancient oaks envelops you as you make the drive to the Caledonia Golf and Fish Club clubhouse, and from there it just gets better. The course is routed through some of the best terrain in the Lowcountry – wind and beautiful – as befits a site where hunting and fishing has been going on virtually undisturbed for centuries.
