Brews and Birdies: Enjoy the best of Charleston beer and golf

Posted 10/4/2013 2:55:00 PM

If you’re a “beer snob” (and yes, I am) then you know that the microbrew revolution has arrived in South Carolina – particularly in Charleston, which has a number of local breweries producing quality small-batch beers and ale, including Westbrook Brewing, Palmetto Brewing Co., Coast Brewing and Holy City Brewing. You might also have heard there are a few golf courses around the area, too.

It was just a matter of time, then, before someone – in this case, Charleston Golf Guide – decided to combine these two passions into a perfect package of “Brews and Birdies,” offering accommodations, golf and a tour of several local breweries in one convenient and wide-ranging visit.

With prices starting at $123 per night/double occupancy, participants get three rounds of golf – one round each at Charleston’s Coosaw Creek Country Club, Legend Oaks Golf & Tennis Club and The Golf Club at Wescott Plantation – plus three nights’ stay at the Holiday Inn Charleston Riverview, and a three-hour, 30-minute afternoon tour of local breweries, with samples of craft beers included.
