Father's Day in North Myrtle Beach is a celebration beyond compare. All of dad's favorite things are located right here along our 9 miles of coastline. Whether dad’s king of the (sand) castle, a great catch, or a champ of the greens; there is no better way to show him how much he is appreciated and loved than a trip to North Myrtle Beach. We've rounded up our favorite Dad-Approved activities in NMB.

Ready, Set, SWING

Treat dear old dad to a round or two at one of North Myrtle Beach’s great golf courses. For a fun day on the greens, Azalea Sands Golf Club boasts easy play greens for golfers of all skill levels. Designed by Gene Hamm, Azalea Sands is one of the few courses along the Grand Strand that does not have any homes adjoining the course. For a more challenging round or four, book your tee times at Barefoot Resort & Golf. This multi-course golf resort boasts 4 courses designed by hall of fame players Greg Norman, Davis Love, III, Tom Fazio, and Pete Dye. Each course is visually striking, fun to play, and offers stunning views.

Golf is fun for the whole family, especially when it's mini! Bring dad on an adventure around an erupting volcano at Hawaiian Rumble or on a mining expedition for hidden gems at Lost Treasure Mini Golf. Up the ante when you challenge the highest scorer to buy ice cream for the group after your round - or just make dad pay like normal! 

Go Fish

Dinner can be the "catch of the day" if you spend some time pier fishing or a day on a fishing excursion. Book your inshore fishing trip with Captain Smiley Fishing Charters. Captain Smiley will provide all the equipment needed for your trip, including your license. If deep-sea fishing is calling dad’s name, then you need to hop aboard the Little River Fishing Fleet, the #1 deep-sea fishing service for over 35 years with 5 boats offering a variety of fishing options. For a "reel" adventure (dad joke), set out into the marshes of Cherry Grove for some small boat or kayak fishing. Flounder is especially abundant and delicious this time of year. If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, cast your line from the Cherry Grove Fishing Pier, where redfish and mackerel are both popular catches in June. 

Cheers, Dad

Nothing is better after a day on the course or the high seas than an ice cold beverage. Treat dad to a cold one at Crooked Hammock Brewery. While you're there, take a tour of their brand new, state of the art brewery. The best part? Tours include 5 samples and one full sized pour. Cheers! This year, Crooked Hammock is hosting Dad Jokes: Funny Father's Day Open Mic Night. Take the stage with your best one-liners for a chance to win the grand prize! If cocktails are more dad's style, bring him to Twelve 33 Distillery where their handcrafted spirits are distilled on-site. Enjoy a tasting flight or a signature cocktail, and be sure to save room in your suitcase for a few bottles to bring back home!

Beach Day for Dad

Dad will love nothing more than to spend a day with a front row seat of the waves rolling in, the sun shining down, and all his favorite people under his beach umbrella. Pack the perfect beach picnic when you grab all your beach day essentials from Boulineau's IGA Food Plus. Not to worry, you can even pick up a Father's Day card for dad while you are there! At the beach, dad can sit back and relax with his favorite book in hand, or challenge him to a game of corn hole or Bocce ball. Companies like North Strand Beach Services have all your beach day equipment needs ready to rent. From beach chairs and umbrellas, to corn hole boards and boogie boards, they will even rent a cart to you so you can help dad down to the beach with all your gear!

Dinner is Served

Close out a great day by spoiling dad with a great meal. If dad has a carnivorous craving, treat him to dinner at Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse. This upscale steakhouse offers endless meats carved tableside, along with an extensive salad bar and delicious drinks. If it's seafood he's looking for, check out a local favorite like Boardwalk Billy’s or Filet's. Both local restaurants offer great food and waterfront views.

However you choose to celebrate Father's Day, remember that celebrations are better at the beach . . . North Myrtle Beach!  Neckties are overrated anyway.
