The below facilities are proud to host our US Military. Take a look at the great courses!
Arcadian Shores Golf Club
Arcadian Shores Golf Club was designed by renowned golf course architect, Rees Jones. The uniquely contoured fairways and green complexes with an abundance of live oaks and well placed lakes, give this course a personality all its own. Located in the heart of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Arcadian Shores is a quick trip from all area accommodations. The convenience of location makes this course a regular choice for all visiting golfers and a local’s favorite.
With a canvas of Bermuda Fairways and Bentgrass Greens, the team of Ray Floyd and Tom Jackson have created a 27-hole masterpiece along the scenic Intracoastal Waterway in Myrtle Beach. Each nine-hole layout is unique, featuring uncommon elevations, hardwood wetlands and the most impeccable manicured holes in the area.
Blackmoor, Gary Player’s only Grand Strand signature course, is built on the historic Longwood Plantation, which parallels the Waccamaw River. This spectacular undulating design takes advantage of the natural terrain and beautiful vistas making it a most enjoyable place to play. As the world’s most traveled golfer, Player was able to use his wisdom and talent to provide a challenging course for the most capable golfer. Yet, the clever layout provides the high handicapper a very fun round.
Burning Ridge first opened in 1980, when the Myrtle Beach area was emerging as a prominent golfing destination. In the years since, its combination of quality course conditions and a Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association Course of the Year award have only bolstered Burning Ridge’s reputation for providing outstanding play.
Eagle Nest Golf Club opened in 1971 and has hosted hundreds of thousands of golfers since. The beautiful Gene Hamm designed golf course is an 18-hole Myrtle Beach championship public golf course. With the construction of two new sets of tees, it makes Eagle Nest the 3rd longest golf course in America at 8,168 yards, and one of the shortest at 3,800 yards makes this gem the most playable course in the Carolina’s.
Located in quaint, quiet Pawleys Island, America’s oldest seaside resort, the Founders Club at Pawleys Island immediately impresses you with the striking beauty of the 9th hole, the first hole you see as you enter the golf club. A beautiful, well-laid-out hole, it makes a strong statement and sparks the most comments from visitors. And it sets the tone for what is to come.
Hackler Golf Course
How could a Gene Hamm-designed course get even better? A renovation led by renowned architect Craig Schreiner certainly doesn’t hurt. A state-of-the-art practice facility, exquisite décor and completely remade greens featuring MiniVerde Bermuda grass all contribute to a heightened level of quality at the Hackler Course.
Seamlessly blending both traditional architecture and modern challenges, the International Club, listed on Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play,” delivers a formidable yet rewarding golf experience. Playable by golfers of all levels, this Willard Byrd design is an immaculately maintained course that demands great ball striking and finishing on quick, smooth and true greens.
Mature tree-lined fairways wind amid the giant oaks and shimmering lakes of a former Carolina rice plantation, creating an extraordinarily challenging “country club” golf experience. While it’s popular for courses today to tweak their design, open for play in 1966, the course has maintained its original features, including player friendly greenside pathways for bump and run approach shots.
Great golf courses are often described as where the holes become etched in your memory. Long Bay Club is such a course. The Long Bay Club is a magnificent Jack Nicklaus Signature Course that is consistently ranked among the top courses in the state. Deep pot bunkers and vast waste areas add a unique identity and challenge to this Nicklaus masterpiece. Formidable in every feature, Long Bay displays countless large man-made mounds, a demanding but deceiving par-3 holes and bottomless bunkers.
Respected architect Willard Byrd put his personal stamp on Meadowlands with distinctive parkland features that follow the lay of the land through mature woods bordered by serene meadows, pristine lakes and vast wetlands. Spacious, gently sloping fairways offer a surprising variety of elevation changes that present a multitude of challenges as they open onto large, immaculately manicured greens. Built to Audubon International guidelines, this course delivers championship quality and offers ample opportunities to view area wildlife in their natural habitat.
Myrtle Beach National - South Creek
South Creek is an Arnold Palmer signature design and the favorite among its members. With just 6,400 yards from the back tees, South Creek challenges golfers to focus on accuracy not distance with each shot. Finesse is required by every golfer with its guarded tif-eagle greens and protected waste areas, as it winds through wetlands and hardwood forests. A distinctly different design than Myrtle Beach National’s other two courses, SouthCreek provides its own unique round of golf. In 2004, this spectacular blend of national and man-made challenges was voted among the “Top 100 in America” by Golf for Women.
Rivers Edge might be situated on the North Strand, but this Arnold Palmer-designed course is certainly worth the few extra miles of driving. It lives up to its name with seven holes, including the last four, that play along the Shallotte River. Golf Digest has ranked Rivers Edge among America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses. Many visitors to Myrtle Beach agree it’s a can’t-miss.
River Hills is a nice addition to any Myrtle Beach golf package. There are no parallel holes, creating the sense that you are alone on the course, and the layout and conditioning are always very good. The property has elevation changes that are unusual for a golf course, adding to its appeal to visit on a Myrtle Beach golf vacation.
At Prestwick, Pete and P.B. Dye have crafted a links-style masterpiece reminiscent of Dye designs. Over 1.3 million cubic yards of earth were moved in sculpting towering dune-like berms, stairway bunkers and bulkhead–protected greens. A dense pine forest, sandy waste areas and meandering streams and lakes frame the generous landing areas afforded the player from any of the six sets of tees. “5 Best Kept Secret Courses in America- 2004” 4.5 STARS, 2006- Golf Digest
Sea Trail Byrd
What’s behind door number 3? It’s the Willard Byrd Course, arguably the best of the three layouts at Sea Trail Resort. Come play it and see where you’d rank it. You may find it a little challenging, but a lack of forced carries and room to drive the ball make it extremely playable from the white tees.
The dramatic 27-hole layout reflects its 1815 Scottish heritage with rolling fairways, stacked-sod bunkers and flawless bentgrass greens. Old World architecture, abundant landscape and wildlife surround the lakes, bridges and private homes. The new clubhouse features an authentic Scottish pub with an extensive list of single malts and houses one of the finest private collections of golf memorabilia in the world.
Set Among the rolling terrain of a 16th century plantation, The Tradition Club is a Ron Garl course designed in the tradition of the great courses from around the world. Test your power on large landing areas that allow for big swings off the tee and your accuracy against well-guarded greens that require precise shot making. Combined with exceptional beauty, it’s a course that is as enjoyable to play as it is challenging. Golf Digest awarded this course 4.5 stars in their prestigious “Places to Play” course rankings.
Wachesaw Plantation East has hosted four LPGA tournaments, bringing Annika Sorenstam and Karrie Webb, a two-time winner, to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The course that has tested some of the game’s legends is an ideal addition to any Myrtle Beach golf vacation. Wachesaw is built on land that was once home to a thriving rice plantation, and the rolling fairways, tidal swamps and natural wetlands made it an ideal canvas for a superb golf course.
Great things happen when a former U.S. Open winner and a legendary architect decide to partner up. Larry Nelson and Jeff Brauer were able to make magic happen with the Avocet Course at Wild Wing. No Myrtle Beach golf vacation is complete without playing the course's dual fairways and the par 4, 308-yard 14th hole.
