Putting the Spotlight on One North Strand Star

Experience Crow Creek’s effortless combination of hospitality and golf for yourself

There is something about playing golf in the south that is just a little more enjoyable. Maybe it’s the warm sunshine beating down on your back as you stroll the fairway. Maybe it’s the soft whisper of the wind blowing in the pines. Whatever it is, there is a real charm to golf in the Carolinas, a charm that is embraced to the absolute fullest at Crow Creek Golf Club, which can be booked as part of your next Myrtle Beach golf vacation with MyrtleBeachGolf.net and SeaSide Resorts.

Recently reopened with L93 bentgrass putting surfaces, Crow Creek resides just across the North Carolina/South Carolina state line in Calabash, N.C., and has reestablished itself as one of the premier golf experiences anywhere along the Grand Strand for a variety of reasons. Perhaps no reason is more noticeable than the beautiful contemporary clubhouse that greets you upon arrival. Exuding its own unique charm with rocking chairs on the front porch, the clubhouse includes a full-service pro shop with signature apparel, a highly professional, courteous staff ready to help you with whatever you may need, a stocked food and beverage area and an inviting covered patio overlooking the practice putting green and the 18th, all part of the fantastic amenities to enjoy before or after your round.

The par-72 layout measures almost 7,000 yards from the back tees, with wide fairways, stunning views from tee to green and the common challenge of water hazards, found on 16 of 18 holes. Nos. 6 and 8 are two notable par 3s on the front nine, each one with water coming into play. Yet despite the water, Crow Creek is friendly and wide open, making it the optimal choice for players of all skill levels. The flat and forgiving front nine meanders through what once were tobacco fields, while the back nine treks through Carolina woodlands with tree-lined fairways. You’ll experience the best of both worlds at Crow Creek.

Trail Stops

Five courses along the Myrtle Beach Golf Trail

With a wide variety of stay & play packages to choose from, MyrtleBeachGolf.net and SeaSide Resorts can provide the ideal trip itinerary to fit any group’s needs and budget. One incredible offering for fall 2019 is the Myrtle Beach Golf Trail Package, which offers three or more rounds for unbeatable savings at five of the best golf facilities in the Myrtle Beach area. All five courses included on the Trail offer free replays on the same day of play at the golf course. It’s definitely a deal to check out!

Arcadian Shores is the first solo design by Rees Jones in what has become a legendary design career, and is located just seconds from the Atlantic Ocean. Its tree-lined fairways are somewhat narrow and 64 strategically placed bunkers are strewn throughout. Still, the course’s traditional set-up makes it highly playable for all.

Designed by Gary Player, Blackmoor Golf Club’s finishing hole is a daunting but reachable par 5 with a small lake that guards the right side of the green. The beautiful white clubhouse sits just beyond the flagstick, offering the perfect scene to wrap up your round.

Seven holes at Rivers Edge are set along the bluffs of the Shallotte River, offering some of the best Lowcountry views provided by a golf facility in the area. In true Arnold Palmer fashion, the course flows effortlessly with the landscape’s changes over creeks and around expansive wetlands toward riverfront finishing holes on both nines.

Designed by architect Ken Tomlinson, Tidewater remains true to its natural surroundings, with tall pines, centuries-old oaks, golden marsh and natural water hazards presenting key challenges players must navigate throughout the round. The course also has one of the most scenic (and daunting) par 3s on the East Coast – Hole No. 12, which forces players to hit over tidal marsh to a shallow, intimidating green fronted by railroad ties and two strategically placed bunkers in the right- and left-front.

Also earning the distinction of Myrtle Beach Golf Trail member, Wachesaw Plantation East presents a challenging layout that has played host to many professional tournaments. Scottish-inspired, the greens are some of the largest and most impressive in the area. And with trees thickly lining almost every hole, it is quite rare to see others out on the course, an incredibly rare feature for the area.
