Surfing at Holden Beach Vacations

Gulf Coast Oil Spill

First off, our company wants to wish the best for the families and businesses of those who reside in the area where the oil is affecting. Our hearts go out to all of you at this critical and stressful time. We all hope that the well is plugged very soon and effective measures are taken to keep the threat of the oil and damages to a minimum. It really bothers me to know that so many livelihoods are being destroyed because of it.

We have been getting a lot of calls in the past week or so from people who usually visit and vacation along the areas of Louisiana, the Florida panhandle, and Mississippi asking for information on our area. I would guess that 75% of those calling are not really familiar with our beaches and the charm we have here in southern Brunswick County. Those calling are telling us that they are scared as to what to is going to happen with their already made vacation plans in the effected areas.

So…I thought I would give a short description about our beach. Our area is well known for its low-key atmosphere, quite and serene surroundings. Holden Beach, NC is a small 8 mile long island that does not have ANY high rise hotels or buildings. Only one small grocery store and a few small shops are on the island. If you are looking for something to do with the kids, we have small putt-putt courses, local museums, and much more that are close by. Also, we are only 30 minutes to the north of Myrtle Beach, SC and 30 minutes to the south of Wilmington, NC. Myrtle Beach, SC of course is well known all over the world for their beautiful golf courses. Holden Beach is in a perfect location for warm sunny weather and having literally 100 golf courses within an hours drive. The closest golf course to Holden Beach is called Lockwood Folly Golf Course and it is located only 3 miles from our beautiful white sandy beach. The 18 hole, par 72 Willard Byrd designed course measures 6836 yards from the tips and has a rating of 73.9 with a slope of 140. The front tees provide a distance of 5029 yards for a rating of 71.1 with a slope of 122. Whatever a player’s ability level, Lockwood Folly Golf Course will provide one with an unforgettable round of golf. In a way, this can be considered the “Holden Beach Home Course”. Grab your clubs and do a few rounds!

Holden Beach, NC is truly a sparkling gem nestled on the deep blue Atlantic Ocean coastline and was voted one of the Top 10 Family Beaches in the US” by National Geographic, TRAVELER Magazine. Please, visit us at and see what we have to offer. You can reserve one of our homes online if you prefer.

If you are looking for an alternative vacation destination, please consider Holden Beach, NC. Families have been bringing their children to vacation here for more than 50 years. Now, those children are bringing their children to make lifetime memories.

Again, we wish the best for those people being affected by the devestation of the oil spill.
