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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
