Prepping for a myrtle beach trip. First time going. 12 dudes end of August. For those that have been before, or are locals....

 

1. Am I really going to be regretting it with the weather? Or the bugs? What should I expect from the weather.

 

2. Mostly going to stay at the barefoot resort. Would love some feedback on it, but if you had to give a must play course or two in all of myrtle, what course should I be adding?

I go every year for a week or sometimes twice. I'll be there in July.  August is hot but at least you will be toward the end of the month. Probably in the upper 80's. So it really won't be much different than NJ. Bugs are not really an issue unless you play a course in a swamp like The Witch. Bug spray is all you would need.

Depending on how much you want to spend on a course will dictate where to play. 

Caledonia, True Blue, Heritage are top notch and all in the south strand. For a different type of outing you can play World Tour. All famous holes from different courses around the world. Don't expect to score well they are famous holes for a reason.  Now you have 18 in a row. The resort you are staying at is very good and the courses are all good. World Tour is not far from your resort.

Caledonia is always ranked in the top 100 and in the lower numbers on ranking (lower meaning good). I payed $200 to play it last year. Yes its pricey but it was on my bucket list. 

No joke be careful with gators! Give the ponds some space. Ball goes in just forget it.

I went in August many years ago for my buddy's 50th birthday.  We played 10 courses in 6 days, and it rained every damn day!!  I live in the desert... I don't like rain.  Hope you have good weather.

Like @Tom the Golf Nutsays, there are a bunch of great courses there; played Barefoot courses, True Blue, Heritage, Caledonia (my favorite).  Kings North, TPC Myrtle Beach and a couple up on the north end.  I wouldn't go back to TPC.  Kings North was OK, but the weather made it miserable.

FYI, the World Am is at the end of August;  3000+ golfers competing on 60 Myrtle Beach courses.  It gets a little crowded.  I was playing the Barefoot Love course when they were playing the other Barefoot courses.
