Course Spotlight: Carolina National

As the first signature design in the Carolinas by popular PGA Tour player Fred Couples, Carolina National Golf Club offers 27 holes of player-friendly golf in a spectacular setting nestled along the banks of the scenic Lockwood Folly River.

Carolina National’s three nines each provide a distinctly different feel and style of play:

  • Ibis, featuring forced carries and water on seven of its nine holes;
  • Egret, the more traditional designs of this trio that plays inland amid native pines; and
  • Heron, a more open layout that most brilliantly accentuates the beauty of Carolina National’s Lockwood Folly River surroundings.

Making its debut on the Grand Strand golf scene in 1998, Carolina National celebrates its 20-year anniversary in 2018 and has earned accolades along the way that include a coveted 4.5-star rating from Golf Digest’s “Places to Play,” and a citation by the National Audubon Society as a natural environmental and wildlife preserve.

 

With immaculate Bermuda grass playing surfaces provided on a year-round basis, Couples drew upon his Masters pedigree (he won the event in 1992) to bring an “Augusta feel” to Carolina National with expertly framed tee shots, strategic bunkering and striking hole visuals that keep its devoted players coming back year after year.

As you plan your next Myrtle Beach golf getaway, why not include Carolina National in your trip itinerary? Our Captain’s Choice Package allows you to customize your trip the way it works best for you, with a choice of dozens of area designs offering tee times at the best available rates.

Course Spotlight: Tidewater Golf Club

North Myrtle Beach is home to many fine courses, but one of our favorites is Tidewater Golf Club.

Why? Along with being one of the top-rated courses in the area, Tidewater combines pristine conditions year-in and year-out along with top-notch customer service from everyone who works at the club.

Let’s go back to the awards before we get into the club itself. There isn’t an empty spot in the Tidewater trophy case. Tidewater has been named one of Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play many times and is consistently named among the top 10 courses in South Carolina.

While the awards speak for themselves, you must see the layout of the course to truly appreciate its beauty. Tidewater plays 7,078 yards from the black tees and is a par 72. Commonly called the Pebble Beach of the East, the panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean on 13 to the feel of a southern plantation make Tidewater a truly a special course.

Perched atop river bluffs along the Intracoastal Waterway that offer scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Tidewater combines the natural elements of maritime forests and pristine salt marshes to create a picture that belongs on a postcard.

But it’s more than sheer beauty that brings golfers back to this course year after year. Designed by architect Ken Tomlinson, this challenging layout seamlessly conforms to the landscape to create an enjoyable but difficult round.

With its classic yet contemporary design, Tidewater presents players with thrilling risk/reward opportunities that requires both low- and high-handicappers to put their shot-making skills to the test. Regardless of your grade, you’ll enjoy a one-of-a-kind golf experience at Tidewater!
