Five North Strand courses to play on your next Myrtle Beach golf getaway

MyrtleBeachGolf.net provides access to the best courses the Grand Strand has to offer, including five courses on the North Strand that are truly remarkable. Be sure to check out these stars of the North next time you golf in Myrtle Beach:

Tidewater is a star in North Myrtle Beach that emphasizes the land that surrounds the course as well as any in the area, with boats passing by on the Intracoastal Waterway and scenic views of natural Lowcountry marshlands for as far as the eye can see. The beauty of golf in the South Carolina Lowcountry is on full display at Tidewater. But don’t look too long! The course is challenging and requires skillful shot making to be successful.

The Dye Course and The Fazio Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf in North Myrtle Beach are two remarkable stars. The Dye Course features the expansive fairway bunkering, strategic mounding and classic railroad ties that make Pete Dye a legend. The course is a real bear but also a tremendously fun time. The Fazio Course is an elegant Lowcountry gem meandering through marsh, pines and live oaks, and embracing Myrtle Beach’s natural features, as water comes into play on 15 of 18 holes.

Thistle Golf Club’s three 9s – Stewart, Mackay and Cameron – are all designed by Tim Cate and offer impeccable course conditions and customer service that is second-to-none for public golf. Each 9 presents a playable links style in a unique Lowcountry setting, so that no matter which two 9s you play, your round is always highly creative and, most of all, fun. With a background that will blow you away, course features that will challenge all players and perfect conditions year-round, Thistle Golf Club is a star for a reason.

Last, the surroundings found at Rivers Edge in Shallotte, North Carolina make it a star for all who visit. Beautifully utilizing the tidal areas of the Shallotte River, the course was designed by “The King” himself, Arnold Palmer, and is as beautiful as it is fun to play. Give it a shot and see how well you do.

With so many great courses to check out on the North Strand, what are you waiting for? Book yourself a spot at SeaSide Resorts, bring your clubs, and get golfing with MyrtleBeachGolf.net.

 

Top 5 Central Strand Courses for a Myrtle Beach Getaway

The “Grand Strand” of Myrtle Beach golf features three distinct areas over a 60-mile stretch, each of which offers its own unique flair when you include their courses as part of a golf getaway. The Strand’s northern end is highlighted by premier golf courses such as Tidewater Golf Club and all four designs at Barefoot Resort & Golf, while the South Strand includes courses such decorated designs as TPC Myrtle Beach and Caledonia Golf & Fish Club.

Right in the heart of the action, though, are the many prized offerings of the Central Strand. If you’re staying in or close to the City of Myrtle Beach, make sure you check out these five designs.

  1. Pine Lakes Country Club. “The Granddaddy” of them all, Pine Lakes is the oldest club in all of Myrtle Beach. This 1927 design has held up nicely against the test of time, and thanks to a $15 million renovation in 2009, the course is as good as ever. Come enjoy this historic piece of property next time you’re in Myrtle Beach.
  2. Prestwick Country Club. There’s nothing like a classic Dye design in Myrtle Beach to get your golf trip started. The Pete and P.B. Dye design at Prestwick Country Club is famous for dramatic elevation changes, deep pot bunkers and large, undulating greens. When you get to the 9th and 18th holes, don’t look at that water!
  3. Arrowhead Country Club. Arrowhead is a 27-hole facility that borders the Intracoastal Waterway and plays host to some of the fastest greens around Myrtle Beach. Arrowhead gives you the views and premium course conditions at a great price.
  4. Legends-Moorland. At Legends Golf & Resort there are three championship golf courses that will test your golf game, and the Moorland course is another P.B. Dye design that reveals its signature Dye elements the moment you step on the first tee box. Set up like a true links golf course, the Moorland course can be a great time for every skill level.
  5. King’s North at Myrtle Beach National. King’s North remains one of the most requested golf courses in the Central Strand, featuring risk-reward holes like “The Gambler” at No. 6 and “Bull’s Eye” at No. 18, which has some 40 bunkers on it. With greens that are pure year-round, Arnold Palmer’s premium design at King’s North has been a “must-add” to many vacationing golfers’ itineraries over the years.

If you’re staying in the central part of Myrtle Beach make sure stop by one of these five golf courses and soak in every minute. Start planning your golf trip around these courses today; for more information on them click here.

Play Legends for Less

Play 3-Get 1, Play 4-Get 1 Legends deals give you freebies galore

MyrtleBeachGolf.net and Legends are now offering two outstanding stay-and-play packages, a 4th round free and a 5th round free deal, each including rounds at one of Legends’ five award-winning properties – Moorland, Heathland, Parkland, Heritage Club or Oyster Bay. Here’s how the deal works:

Choose any three Legends courses and get the 4th round FREE; or choose any four Legends courses and get the 5th round FREE.

A nationally ranked multi-course facility, Legends’ Moorland, Heathland and Parkland courses are located on the same piece of land in central Myrtle Beach. Scottish-inspired, Moorland is a gem, with stern changes in elevation that challenge players to contemplate every yardage. Heathland remains most true to links-inspired golf. Its wide-open fairways and ginormous greens make for a thrilling time. And Parkland is the most contemporary of the three, playing more like a North American golf course than a European links-style.

Carved through centuries-old pines and oaks and with natural marsh views that are sure to inspire, Heritage Club in Pawleys Island is a must-play for so many reasons. The par-71 layout requires creativity and shot-making to successfully navigate the course. Finally, Oyster Bay is located in Sunset Beach – just across the North Carolina border – and features a design element not commonly found in Myrtle Beach. Undulating greens, expansive bunkering, some of the longest water views you will find in the area and, notably, crushed oyster shell-lined tee boxes mark Oyster Bay as truly unique.
