Your summer journey to Holden Beach is bound to be unforgettable, especially when you have a seven-day itinerary to make the most of the fun. The following options will keep you entertained every step of the way!
Day 1: Hit the Holden Beach Driving Range
With summer weather on your side and plenty of daylight to match, this is the perfect time of year to enjoy spending time at the Holden Beach Driving Range. Located at 2355 Holden Beach Road SW, the Holden Beach Driving Range is a welcoming and laid-back spot where visitors can work on their long game at their own pace. They’re open daily from 8:00 am until 10:00 pm making it a great addition to even the busiest summer Holden Beach schedule imaginable. With 16 lighted tee stations, a grass-hitting area, and 5,000 square feet of grass-hitting surfaces at your disposal, there’s no shortage of options for honing your skills here.
Day 2: Play a Round at Lockwood Folly Country Club
For the summer traveler heading to Holden Beach that can’t imagine time away without a tee time on the books, a round played at Lockwood Folly Country Club is a must. Situated at 19 Clubhouse Drive SW, the Lockwood Folly Country Club is a Brunswick County favorite built on a former hunting preserve. The 18-hole course was designed by Willard Byrd and is built among creeks, salt marshes, fields, and forests guaranteeing a round is as scenic as it is exciting for golfers. This course is a great option for golfers of all skill levels and offers up the views that keep you coming back for more.
Day 3: Make It a Beach Day to Remember
Much as the name indicates, Holden Beach is a summer destination designed for travelers that can’t get enough of time on the sand and under the sun. There’s no reason not to dedicate at least a full day of your getaway to time exploring the beach, building sandcastles with the kids, or dipping your toes in the waves. You can easily rent beach chairs for a more comfortable beach day experience or start up a game of beach volleyball if some friendly shoreline competition would go a long way toward the fun.
Day 4: Visit the Museum of Coastal Carolina
If you find yourself in Holden Beach on a rainy summer day, or you’re looking for an addition to the itinerary that helps you cool off indoors for a while, be sure to make time for a visit to the Museum of Coastal Carolina while you’re in town. This is a great stop for visitors of all ages and includes a variety of exhibits highlighting everything from marine conservation and coastal reefs to unique shark behavior too. There are touch and feed tanks scattered throughout the museum and plenty of art and crafts opportunities for the kids too. From the interactive programs to the amazing displays, you might find yourself lingering longer than you originally planned.
Day 5: Visit the Oak Island Lighthouse
When you’re looking to mix in a little history this summer and you want your Holden Beach getaway to include amazing architecture too, a trip to the nearby Oak Island Lighthouse is certainly in order. This lighthouse was completed in 1958 and stands no less than 169 feet tall. The lighthouse illuminates the Cape Fear River and guests are invited to take a tour year-round with no reservations required in the summer.
Day 6: Partner with Tour H2O
Cool off in style during your summer journey to Holden Beach when you rent a kayak or pontoon boat through the team at Tour H2O. This company offers guided kayaking tours upon request and pontoon boats can be rented for up to two hours at a time. It’s a great option when you want to get out on the water, explore nature, and enjoy quality time with family and friends this summer.
