I spent much of my younger days around the Myrtle Beach area. I can't help much on golf courses or hotels, since I don't get over that way anymore...but I can tell you if you drive up the intercoastal hwy (17) north towards Cherry Grove Beach, ask around for directions to the Captain's Plank seafood/buffet restaurant for a really good deal on a lunchtime meal. And...take a look at the restaurant right next door to it and see if you can believe the name of it. I figured it would have been changed long before now. If you go, you'll see what I mean! Have a great trip to the Grand Strand! Oh, if you don't already know, or are familiar with the area, the Myrtle Beach Pavilion has been shut down. That's a shame, because it has been a family oriented fun-place for a very long time. I'm sure glad my own kids got to make some memories there, like I did when I was a kid and my parents used to take us there. Progress, I guess.
