Myrtle Beach Golf Vacations and Hurricanes – How to Weather the StormWritten by Evans Putman
Hurricane season in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina runs from June through November each year. The peak months for hurricane activity are August and September. If you are planning a Myrtle Beach golf vacation during these times of year, you should prepare yourself before arriving at your golf destination. This article provides tips and advice on how to weather any storm tropics might throw at you while enjoying your golf vacation.
NOAA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, predicts that 2005 will be another above-average Atlantic hurricane season. The organization predicts 12 to15 tropical storms, 7 to 9 hurricanes and 3 to 5 major hurricanes. Vacationing golfers should not take these predictions lightly. We have already seen one of busiest Julys in history of hurricane tracking.
Golfers should not let these predictions deter them from taking a golf trip to Myrtle Beach area during summer and fall seasons. Summer golf deals along Grand Strand are hotter than our southern summers. Also, fall in Myrtle Beach provides golfers with dropping accommodation rates to accompany falling temperatures and humidity.
If you are unlucky enough to be right in middle of a golf vacation when a hurricane takes aim at coast of Carolinas, don’t worry. Unlike an unexpected afternoon thunderstorm, hurricanes do not sneak up on South Carolina coast. This gives vacationing golfers plenty of time to leave before situation gets dangerous.
The best piece of advice we can offer if you plan on visiting Grand Strand golf area during hurricane season is to keep an eye on extended Myrtle Beach weather forecast. If a hurricane approaches during your trip, don't panic. As soon as it looks like you may need to abandon your golf vacation, begin following these steps.
