Is your golf game improving but not quite ready for a course setup to test the best players in the world? If so, Myrtle Beach, unlike any other destination in the world, has the versatility to ensure you an unforgettable golf vacation.
The area is home to more than 50 4-star golf courses, according to Golf Digest. To put that in perspective, 4-stars means a course is good enough to “plan your next vacation around.” That’s a lot of different vacation combinations available to golfers as they develop their game.
Along the North end of the Grand Strand, layouts like Glen Dornoch, which provides stunning Intracoastal Waterway views, Heather Glen, Crow Creek and the four Big Cats at Ocean Ridge Plantation – Lion’s Paw, Panther’s Run, Tiger’s Eye and Leopard’s Chase – offer a good test of golf on great courses.
Not to be outdone, the three layouts at Legends Resort in Myrtle Beach – Heathland, Moorland and Parkland – are among the area’s most popular. Heathland and Moorland, in particular, feature enormous fairways and greens, allowing golfers to use their creativity in getting the ball in the hole.
Pine Lakes, Myrtle Beach’s first course, is an ideal blend of challenge and playability and a historic clubhouse adds to the experience. World Tour Golf Links, which features holes modeled after those at some of the game’s most famous courses, including Augusta National, is a must-play. Prestwick Country Club and Arrowhead Country Club are among the most underrated courses in all of South Carolina and should be on your itinerary.
What makes Myrtle Beach special is the depth of its offerings, and those options make golfers who are developing their game the primary beneficiaries.
