Sunset Beach Golf Course Information

One of the joys of a Sunset Beach vacation is that your family doesn't have to choose between the beach or the golf course-they can have both! With so many good golf courses that are priced reasonably in close proximity to Sunset Beach, you'll keep everyone happy when you stay with Sunset Properties.

Planning a golf vacation for the Sunset Beach area? Instead of staying at a golf course condo, why not opt for the best of both worlds-stay at a condo or home on the island, and play at one of the many championship courses within an easy drive of the island. Then you'll get to relax at a comfortable home and walk the beach after your golfing day ends.

The Sunset Villas are modern 2 bedroom, 2 bath condos near the middle of our island-the perfect size for one or two couples on a golfing vacation. You can find the units in our rental search - just enter the dates that you are coming, select the number of bedrooms you need, and our search engine will let you know what's available then. If your group will be larger, we offer homes from 3 to 4 bedrooms all the way up to 8 bedrooms (when you rent both sides of an oceanfront duplex).

If you're looking for golfing challenges, we've got them for you in our backyard! There are over 30 golf courses available for play within a short distance of Sunset Beach and Brunswick County. If you're adventuresome and want to head to either Myrtle Beach or Wilmington during your stay here, the number rises over 100. Listed below are some of the area courses - feel free to visit their websites or call them directly for tee times and applicable rates.
