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 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. Each day of play you’ll receive breakfast, lunch and two beers or soft drinks at the courses for FREE. Your free round must be played after 1 p.m., but that restriction may be lifted for the winter golf season. Your free round discount will be applied once your deposit has been paid.

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.

Package Spotlight: The Mystical 3-Round

Play three rounds including lunch and two beers at Mystical Golf’s Trifecta is the place to go for booking once-in-a-lifetime Myrtle Beach golf vacations, and right now, they are offering an outstanding one featuring three of Myrtle Beach’s best: Mystical Golf’s Witch, Wizard and Man O’War.

The Mystical 3 Play Including Lunch and 2 Beers gets you a round of golf at each of these brilliant courses, designed by local legend Dan Maples, as well as FREE lunch and two FREE beers each day you play. The earlier you book the more you save, and additional discounts apply for rounds played before 8 a.m. and/or on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

The Witch was built in 1989 on a beautiful piece of land, surrounded by native grasslands and with wildlife in abundance. Alligators and egrets are spotted frequently. As the back nine takes you away from the marsh, you experience swift elevation changes rarely seen in a Myrtle Beach golf experience.

Man O’War was built next, in 1996, with a layout Maples utilizes to showcase another daunting challenge in golf – lakes. The course plays more than 7,000 yards from the back tees as it wraps its way around one of the larger lakes in the area. The lake is completely visible throughout the round but still far enough way that it doesn’t punish players too much. Seeing the lake is great. Playing Man O’War is even better.

The Wizard is an Irish links-style design with the mounds, hills and dunes to match. Simply put, the clubhouse is as creative as you will ever see (go find out why for yourself), and the par-4 18th hole with the green adjacent to it makes for a thrilling finish.

Course Spotlight: Arrowhead Country Club

Conveniently located just minutes from Myrtle Beach International Airport and major highways leading into the city, Arrowhead Country Club is the area’s most prestigious 27-hole complex.

Designed by the team of Tom Jackson and Raymond Floyd, Arrowhead features three well-maintained nine hole layouts: the Cypress, Lakes, and Waterway courses.

Scenic views of the Intracoastal Waterway and impeccable Bermuda grass fairways are just a sampling of things to be expected from a round at Arrowhead.

The Cypress nine naturally winds through forests and wetlands that often come into play. The sequence of Holes No. 2, 3, and 4, featuring bulkhead protected greens and rolling fairways, has been described as one of the most beautiful trios of holes in the nation. And its beauty is only equaled by the quality of the course itself.

Appropriately named, the Lakes course challenges golfers with water coming into play on almost every single hole. But generous fairways and multiple birdie opportunities are just as abundant. Like the Cypress nine, the Lakes features pristine fairways and impeccably maintained undulating greens.

The Waterway layout at Arrowhead is one of the most memorable nine-hole stretches in the area. This classic design also incorporates wide fairways, large greens and, of course, water. Considered to be Arrowhead’s signature hole is the 5th Hole on Waterway, a par 4 that runs parallel to the Intracoastal Waterway.

Regardless of what nine you play, Arrowhead is sure to deliver. The course has been named “South Carolina’s Golf Course of the Year” in addition to being named “The Best of the Grand Strand” in 2012.
