Prep for Cooler Temps on the Course
This time of year in Virginia Beach can mean unpredictable weather conditions. The temperature seems to change in an instant and you have to factor in the wind chill prior to dressing for golf. Depending on the wind direction, it could be short sleeve or wind jacket weather. Remember that it's always better to use layers than to wear one bulky item. You can add or take away an article of clothing as the day progresses. A good wicking garment next to your skin is a good way to start.
In addition to dressing in layers, you want to be sure to use a sunscreen. Many people don't realize that the sun is actually closer to you during the winter than it is in the summer. Most sunscreens also protect your skin from the wind and help you retain moisture.
Pay for 18, Play All Day!
Pay for 18, Play All Day, space available, continues at Bow Creek

! Take advantage of this great opportunity at our courses. If you get out early, you can get an extra nine or even eighteen holes in before the sun sets. If you only want to play a few extra holes, that's fine too. Hang on to your receipt for 18 holes and enjoy some more golf on us!
Note: Upon completion of the first 18 holes, first round golfers will be given priority at tee off.
Fun Fact: It's 'Snow' Joke
When a few South Carolina golf resorts took out rain insurance policies for their guests, many golfers thought it was funny when the word snow was added to their policy. But it was no joke when Myrtle Beach was hit with two inches of snow in January 1992. Forty-eight golfers at the Sands Oceanfront collected $7,100 from the resort for lost playing time.
