Myrtle Beach Prime Golf Courses
Blackmoor Golf Club
is a must play in the Myrtle Beach area. It's creative, well maintained and extremely friendly. Everyone does a little of everything. An assistant golf professional was working the bag drop, while another was working the counter. Seniority doesn't determine who does what. It rotates.
Out on the golf course, the same do-whatever-it-takes efforts prevail. The fairways are lush, while the greens are smooth and fast.
Gary Player's only Myrtle Beach-area golf course starts out with a par 4 with a bit of a marsh carry (nothing to worry about) and a wide fairway. From there, it's up to an elevated green that is fronted by two large bunkers. Piece of cake.
The second hole is a par 3 with a wall of bunkers behind it, and the third is a par 5 that goes down, then up a valley with a marsh carry at its floor. The fourth is a par 3 with a huge alligator that suns next to the front tees. Yes, he's real no matter what your so-called buddies tell you. The alligator does notlike to be petted but would like your arm for dinner.
The sixth is an open hole with a spine running down the middle of the fairway and spokes emanating from the green that prevent any attempts of a bump and run.
The best hole at Blackmoor Golf Club, heck, for miles around, is the split eighth. Go right around a woods and turn right to get to the green. Or, shave off 80 yards and go right for the green through a chute that was recently tamed. Scores of trees were removed and waist-high vegetation cut back. Going that route isn't as punishing as it was a few years ago, but it's still risky.
The personality of the back nine is a little sassier. The 11th is contoured with a large tree in the left third of the fairway and a ridge past it that feeds anything left of center toward the woods. The green slopes the same way, so if you're coming in from the right, your ball probably won't stop on the green.
The 18-hole "South Creek" course at the Myrtle Beach National Golf Course facility in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina features 6,416 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72 .
The course rating is 71.0 and it has a slope rating of 128 on Bermuda grass. Designed by Arnold Palmer/Francis J. Duane, ASGCA, the South Creek golf course opened in 1973. Brad Crumling manages the course as the Golf Professional.
Southcreek poses a fantastic test of your golf course management and accuracy. Set amongst coastal wetland and hardwood forest it is regarded as the “finesse” course of the three layouts at the National.
Providing a remarkably different challenge to Kings North, this is another Arnold Palmer gem.
The course is short from the whites, but does require some degree of accuracy off the tee. All aspects of course conditioning are good, though the greens to be an odd type of grass but nice. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
The greens at the Southcreek course are the smallest out of the three courses housed within Myrtle Beach National. The fairways here are generally flat but the few mounded areas are a true test of skill. Look out for the looming trees which may stand in your way.
Southcreek is simply the sweetest icing on a cake when it comes to golfing perfection.
Had a fun time playing South Creek...course in good shape..greens were smooth and rolled with good pace.
Lots of fun holes lots of par 4's under 400 yards requiring accuracy not distance....warning - they run split tees...don't think a morning time will help you beat the hackers...u wait on them at the turn.
Founders Club Course
The 18-hole Founders Club At Pawleys Island in Pawleys Island, SC is a semi-private golf course that opened in 1970. Designed by Gene Hamm and Thomas Walker, Founders Club At Pawleys Island measures 7007 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 139 and a 74.1 USGA rating. The course features 4 sets of tees for different skill levels. Greens and fairways are bermuda.
This exceptional layout was built on the former site of Sea Gull Golf Club and guests will come away remembering not only their best shot, but every shot. This Thomas Walker design has stunning visuals as well as isolated tee areas... an excellent selection for your golf outing.
The waste bunkers provide a challenge, particularly for higher-handicap amateurs; the rolling fairways that can leave downhill, uphill or side hill lies at times; the greens have quite a bit of undulation; and the course also has water hazards, greenside bunkers, greenside hollows, wetlands, tree lines and out of bounds stakes along some fairways to navigate from its five sets of tee boxes.
The golf course is a great layout. It’s fair from the back but it’s a tough golf course. When they say 1 to 4 handicap to play the back tees they mean it.
“ I don’t think it’s a golf course you’re going to show up and play your best the first time. A lot of course knowledge is needed. There are some blind areas off the tee and into the green, and there are some places you don’t want to be. It’s a position golf course.”
Wild Wing Course
The Avocet, designed as a signature course by the team of Jeff Brauer and Larry Nelson, presents creative contouring, elevated tees and greens, and an all around uniqueness that cannot be matched.
The opening hole, a 402-yard par-4, sports grass depressions in lieu of sand bunkers around the green. The par-4 sixth hole features a three-tiered, double green shared with the par-3 17th. The 362-yard ninth, considered by many to be the signature hole, has a double fairway bisected by a line of grass and sand pot bunkers.
Here, each hole is memorable for it’s enjoyment and playability and golfers come back to this favorite year and after year.
Players will appreciate the variety in the design which includes large, raised, undulating bent grass putting surfaces that roll quick and true. The lush, tree lined fairways present ample landing zones, affording all levels of players with an opportunity to score well and to recover from slightly errant tee shots. Some of the mounding features are spectacular, as witnessed by the design of the par five 15th - both along the fairway and green side. The undulations near the putting complexes result in swales and collection areas that facilitate recovery, but golfers will have to earn it as some of the up and downs from the slopes can be tricky.
Wild Wing also has a driving range, chipping range and putting green within steps of the clubhouse.
