MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Paid spring golf rounds at Grand Strand courses have declined for the second consecutive year, and officials cite weather as a factor.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports (https://bit.ly/1mdbkFq) that based on the collection of a $1.50 per round transaction fee on walk-on and golf package rounds by Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday, those rounds dropped 1.7 percent in the months of March, April and May compared to 2013.

Golf Holiday calculations showed paid spring rounds declined 3 percent in 2013, which included cold and rainy conditions through much of March and April.

Weather Trends International says the amount of playable rounds on the Grand Strand were down 11 percent in March, up nearly 3 percent in April and were static in May compared to the same months in 2013.
