Harbor View Golf, North Myrtle Beach

Whether you are looking for a driving range, a par-3 golf course, foot-golf, or putt-putt, you will find it all at Harbor View Golf, in North Myrtle Beach.

I played this Par-3 course with my wife, who had never played, and my 7-year-old son. We visited during the off-season and it rained most of the week. This left the entire course soaked and the greens extra shaggy. I assume that the greens would be in better condition during prime season. That said, on this occasion the slow greens were a plus. They were just right for my wife and son to enjoy.

This tee shot landed hard on the green, it was a very wet day.

Many of the greens are on the small side. Since we were scrambling, we were able to hit many of the greens in regulation. In the unfortunate event that we did not, we allowed my son to use his “foot-wedge”.


“Hey, we were out there to have fun, not beat ourselves up over missing a green by two feet.”


I have seen other reviews of Harbor View that say it is overpriced. I disagree slightly, 18 holes of golf and a golf cart for a family of three cost us $80. I felt that this course offered a lot of value at this price.

Many of the fairways at Harbor View are wide open,
a great golf course for the family.
If you are looking for a pristine par-three course, Harbor View may not be for you. However, high-end golf courses do not usually offer foot-golf for the kids. This Par-3 golf course is great for a day trip with your family or an easy day of working on your short game.

Little River Deep-sea Fishing, North Myrtle Beach


Unforgettable Experience!


We showed up at Calabash Marina on the morning of our deep-sea fishing trip, they asked that we arrive 30 minutes early. The check-in process was flawless, we boarded the Hurricane II and we were out to sea shortly after. Since this was our first deep-sea fishing excursion, we opted for the half-day trip. The captain did a great job, he kept us on fish all morning and we moved to a new location each time it slowed down.

The knowledgeable deckhands were fun and able to identify many of the different fish species found in the Atlantic ocean. They were quick to assist with removing fish, adding bait, and fixing tangles as needed. My wife ended up catching the largest fish of the morning; she managed to reel in a sharp nose shark that was just under 4ft in length.

When we returned to the dock one of the deckhands cleaned our keepers, they do not charge for this service but keep in mind that they do work for tips. We ended up giving some of our fish away and were still able to take a couple of pounds of shark and grunt fish over to Crabcatchers restaurant, in Little River, NC.

My family and I loved this adventure. Little River Fishing Fleet provided our family with a unique fishing experience that we will never forget. Deep-sea fishing will be a part of our itinerary next time we visit the North Myrtle Beach area.

The Lost Treasure Mini Golf - North Myrtle Beach, SC

Well Kept and Kid-Friendly

The Lost Treasure is one of the best mini golf courses we have ever played. The entire course is well designed, and very well maintained. Each round begins with a train ride to the top of the mountain, and many of the holes have a themed storyline revolving around the incredible Professor Hacker. This adventurous putt-putt course is very kid-friendly, my seven-year-old son loved it so much that we played both the diamond and the Gold course for a total of 36 holes. Please do not mistake “kid-friendly” to mean “easy”, each green on this course is easy enough for kids and still presents some interesting challenges for the adults.

If you do decide to give The Lost Treasure Mini golf course a shot, be sure to take advantage of the discounted second round. At the time of our visit, the second round only cost six bucks per person. I greatly recommend The Lost Treasure; I can't wait to check out other Professor Hacker mini-golf courses!
