Palmetto

Experiencing all that championship golf has to offer starts with a round at Myrtlewood Golf Club and its Palmetto course. Located in the heart of Myrtle Beach, this course is one of the most well-maintained along the Grand Strand, from its closely mown fairways to its slightly undulating TifDwarf Bermuda greens. The relaxed, Lowcountry-style layout presents players with a round of golf that cuts through pine forests and later opens up to panoramic views of the Intracoastal Waterway that you’ll find on just a handful of golf courses in the area.

The traditional layout at Palmetto has made it a popular choice for family golf outings, competitive rounds, or even beginners just learning to play. The reachable par-5 holes, fair and forgiving par 4s, and forgiving tee shots on par 3s make for a pleasant round of golf that anyone can enjoy. Gently sloping fairways and large greens make it a top repeat-play golf course for both tourists and locals year after year.

Palmetto’s exquisite finishing holes are set scenically along the Intracoastal Waterway, with vistas you’ll remember long after your final putt is made. The par-3 17th Hole offers a beautiful kickoff to your round’s finishing stretch, but play it wisely: bunkers and a large water hazard make for a tricky tee shot into a well-protected green. Hole 18 is Palmetto’s signature hole, as well as one of the more compelling holes in all of Myrtle Beach golf. This par-4 finisher is bordered by the Waterway up the entire left side, offering one of the most scenic finishes you’ll experience along the Grand Strand golf scene.

The class and charm that personifies Myrtlewood’s Palmetto course helped earn its distinction as one of Links Magazine’s "Top 30 on the Grand Strand.” Apart from its accolades, this course is simply just a favorite of anyone who plays it. Whether it’s the desire to experience classic Myrtle Beach golf or just enjoy a relaxed afternoon, the Palmetto course at Myrtlewood Golf Club will exceed all of your expectations.

PineHills

One of the first-developed golf courses along the Grand Strand, Myrtlewood’s championship-style PineHills course remains a masterpiece to this day. Designed by renowned architect Arthur Hills as "The Pines” in 1966, PineHills has since undergone two major renovations – one in 1993, which transformed the design into its current PineHills configuration, and another in 2018 highlighted by the installation of new Tif Dwarf Bermudagrass greens.

Similar to its companion Palmetto course, the layout features the strategic placement of bunkers and mounding to create beautifully crafted golf holes requiring intense concentration if you’re looking to post a solid score. Accuracy is paramount, as contoured fairways leading up to tucked greens prove to be just as challenging to putt on as they are to chip to.

Nearly 400 yards shorter than its sister course, PineHills still extends more than 6,600 yards from the back tees to challenge the skill level of more seasoned golfers. You may want to bring an extra sleeve of golf balls before taking on this course, as many of its holes force players to navigate winding water hazards that stretch the length of the fairway, paired with a breeze that continuously rolls off the nearby Intracoastal Waterway. The finishing hole at No. 18 remains one of the most demanding par 4s on the course, a slight dogleg that rewards good ball striking but punishes those that stray too far from the fairway.

The convenient location of Myrtlewood’s PineHills course attracts many players due to the short drive from the golf course to the entertainment hub of Myrtle Beach. Located only minutes away, the post-round opportunities offered along Highway 17 Bypass at Broadway at the Beach are endless. Whether it’s a southern-style meal or shopping and entertainment you’re seeking, this part of Myrtle Beach truly has it all. A marriage of affordability and first-class golf, the experience you’ll encounter at Myrtlewood’s PineHills course is unlike other offerings in the area, making it a frequent destination for locals and tourists alike.
