Evacuation orders have been lifted following Hurricane Florence. However, there is a lot of flooding on roads leading into and out of the area making driving hazardous. Travelers on the roads are encouraged to exercise extreme caution and check SCDOT.org or call 511 for the latest information. Be patient and expect lengthy travel times, blocked roadways or detours.
Crow Creek is an excellent golf course. It has everything you want in a resort course – beauty, challenge and playability – and it always delivers. Basketball legend Michael Jordan has even been known to frequent the North Strand layout.
There’s water on nearly every hole, but it’s not overwhelming and often contributes to Crow Creek’s aesthetics as much as it does the challenge. The course is open off the tee and the greens are open in the front, allowing players the opportunity to run the ball up, a design feature more architects should employee.
The Rick Robbins design features L93 bentgrass greens that offer a pure roll, another reason the layout long ago earned its reputation as a favorite of locals and players on a Myrtle Beach golf trip alike.
