Spirit Air to Launch Nonstop Service from Cleveland to Myrtle Beach in Heart of Spring Golf Season

Great Golf, Value Awaits Northeastern Ohio Golfers in Myrtle Beach

(Myrtle Beach, S.C.) – Cleveland is in the throes of another long winter, but sunny days are on the horizon for golfers in Northeast Ohio.

Spirit Airlines, which offers ultra low cost fares, will begin nonstop flight service from Cleveland to Myrtle Beach, S.C., on April 16, providing plenty of time to enjoy the Grand Strand’s idyllic spring weather.

The daily flight will originate out of Cleveland at 2:20 p.m. and arrive in Myrtle Beach at 4:02 p.m. The return flight will depart Myrtle Beach International Airport at 5:05 p.m., giving players time to play at least 18 holes on departure day, and return to Cleveland at 6:48 p.m.

April weather in Myrtle Beach, home to nearly 100 courses, is perfect for golf with an average high temperature of 76 degrees.

The Grand Strand has more than 50 4-star courses, according to Golf Digest’s prestigious Best Places to Play guide, and 14 Myrtle Beach area layouts have been ranked among America’s top 100 public courses in recent years.

Led by the Dunes Golf & Beach Club, which has hosted PGA, USGA and Senior PGA events, and Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, the quality of Myrtle Beach’s golf offerings has attracted the national spotlight in recent years.

The Grand Strand was voted “Best Golf Destination” by readers of USA Today and 10Best, Barefoot Resort and Pawleys Plantation hosted Golf Channel’s ever popular Big Break show in 2014, and ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike Show will broadcast live from the annual Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am for the fifth consecutive year on April 13, 2015.

The quality of Myrtle Beach’s golf offerings are complemented by unrivaled value. 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 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 central 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, unlimited range balls and an Ailsa Pub voucher.

A golf trip is an ideal antidote for the winter blues, and Spirit’s addition of nonstop service from Cleveland to Myrtle Beach has made a trip to Grand Strand easier than ever.
