An Ace of a Course

International World Golf Tour
Myrtle Beach isn’t called the golf capital of the world for nothing. Home to more than 100 courses, there’s definitely something for every type of golfer. International World Golf Tour is no exception. Upon first glance, it looks like many of the area’s top courses, with well-maintained greens and a fleet of golf carts. But each of the course’s 27 holes is very unique, indeed.
If you’re a golf lover, you’ve probably dreamed of playing just one hole of Augusta National or St. Andrew’s. Well, you’re in luck, because each hole of International World Golf Tour is a full-size replica of a signature hole from a world famous golf course. And yes, they covered all the bases. There’s a replica of Pinehurst #16, St. Andrews #1, Bay Hill #11 and Valderrama #4.
Walking through the clubhouse, I took a moment to soak in a long hallway of remarkable memorabilia before firing up one of the GPS- and software-enabled golf carts that guided me expertly through the course. No detail was left to chance in the construction and renovation of International World Golf Tour; it’s truly a hole in one.
