11/16/2012

The trip from the Nation’s Capital to the Golf Capital of the World is about to get a little easier.

On February 1, 2013 US Airways will begin daily, nonstop service from Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) in Washington, DC to Myrtle Beach. The additional service will provide Washington, Maryland and Northern Virginia area golfers easy access to Myrtle Beach, the nation’s most popular golf destination.


“The expanded flight service from US Airways will be a boon for golfers in one of our strongest feeder markets,” Bill Golden,
Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday’s president, said. “Washington, D.C. area golfers will be able to fly into or out of Myrtle Beach everyday of the week, and they will have the ability to play on arrival and departure days.”

The daily flights will leave Washington, D.C. at 10:45 a.m. and arrive in Myrtle Beach at 12:25 p.m., providing ample time to play an afternoon round.


The return flight will depart Myrtle Beach at 1 p.m. and arrive back in D.C. at 2:25 p.m., allowing for the possibility of an early morning tee time.


Tickets for the new flight service will go on sale Saturday, November 17. ??US Airways already has Saturday-Sunday flight service from DCA to Myrtle Beach.


There are several
Myrtle Beach golf courses within 10 miles of the airport, including Whispering Pines, which is located on an adjacent property, Arrowhead Country Club, World Tour Golf Links, River Oaks, the Palmetto and PineHills courses at Myrtlewood, Wicked Stick and Pine Lakes Country Club.

Home to more than 100 golf courses, including some of the nation’s best, Myrtle Beach is the world’s most popular golf destination, annually attracting more than 1 million players.
