Experience the tradition of Burning Ridge for yourself with MyrtleBeachGolf.net
Less than 30 minutes from Myrtle Beach’s famous coastline sits Burning Ridge, a traditional Grand Strand golf experience that can be booked on your upcoming springtime vacation with MyrtleBeachGolf.net. There’s so much to love about this course! Here are some notables.
Designed by Gene Hamm, this par-72 layout features all those traits that make Myrtle Beach such a sought-after golf destination: long-leaf pines, thoughtful hole design, natural beauty, great year-round course conditions and, of course, affordability.
Throughout the course, Hamm visually disguises the fairways with bunkers and strategically placed tees, though players will discover ample room to be found in the landing zones when shots are properly struck. Burning Ridge offers a fair challenge from all sets of tees, with a priority placed on hitting the fairways, as there aren’t too many holes worth trying to overpower.
The longer hitters will find the par 5s very reachable should they find the fairways, though they will be challenged on the par 3s – especially Nos. 12 and 17, with water surrounding the peninsula greens. For many, No. 12 is the most difficult hole on the course. Though just a par 3, the hole requires a long, forced carry to a green surrounded by water on three of four sides: front, back and right.
Meanwhile, TifEagle Bermuda greens provide consistent putting surfaces that naturally drain well to offer appropriate green speeds for the noticeable undulation found on the majority of the greens.
One thing can be sure: players find Burning Ridge to be an inventive and inviting golf experience that rewards discipline off the tee and strong shot makers for taking creative approaches to the greens. A traditional golf experience awaits at Burning Ridge. Check it out this spring with MyrtleBeachGolf.net and feel the burn for yourself!
