Three Courses to Dye For

Barefoot Dye, Prestwick Country Club, Legends-Moorland represent the best from Pete, P.B. Dye

Myrtle Beach golf is particularly special because the market features courses designed by many of the game’s most renowned names like Nicklaus, Palmer, Player and Fazio. But perhaps one name stands slightly above the rest in the world of golf course design: Dye.

Pete and P.B. Dye’s tremendous creativity and unparalleled craftsmanship are on full display at three of Myrtle Beach’s best golf facilities, each one with a character that is uniquely Dye.

The course in Myrtle Beach that bears Pete’s name, The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort, opened in 2000 to staggering reviews and is a must-book for all golfers. Known for its visual appeal, the Dye Course’s natural surroundings play a big role in its challenge, with tall grass and unrefined waste areas characteristic of a Pete Sr. design. In addition, humongous fairway bunkers, hills and mounding along with Dye’s famous (or infamous) railroad ties remind you that you are playing a course crafted by one of golf’s most innovative minds.

Scottish-inspired, Prestwick Country Club is a collaboration of Pete and P.B. Dye, marked by all of the design features that make the Dyes great, like strategic bunkering and railroad ties, as well as abundant lakes and natural areas that add to the beauty of the traditional design. Play when the pampas grass is at full length, and you’re in for a visual treat that will have you thinking you’ve left the Lowcountry for the hills of Scotland.

The most difficult of the three courses located on-site at Legends Golf Resort, water is an integral feature incorporated throughout its Moorland course’s par-72 layout. Players will also find rolling, mounding, generously wide fairways along with large, undulating greens that require attention for each and every putt. Moorland remains a top pick for golfers looking for the biggest challenge at Legends. The back nine includes an incredible five-hole finish, including the par-4 16th, which is drivable from all tees and presents a great risk/reward because of an elevated green that punishes players who go for the green and miss it.

The Dye name is legendary, and the father/son duo have left a legendary mark on the Myrtle Beach golf scene. Be sure to check out these truly remarkable golf courses on your fall 2019 trip with MBGolf.com. And don’t forget to book your staying accommodations with Condo-World!

The Challenge and the Thrill

Legends Moorland 1000x664

Moorland: An absolute gem at Legends Golf Resort

MBGolf.com offers access to all three championship courses on-site at Legends Resort and Golf: Moorland, Heathland and Parkland – all for a cost that is truly remarkable. The most difficult of the three, Moorland is a wicked gem, featuring numerous elevated tees, greens and forced carries. Golfweek named the P.B. Dye design a Top 100 Resort Course for 2019. It is easy to see why.

One magnificent feature of the Myrtle Beach golf market is the prevalence of courses designed by some of the game’s foremost designers and builders. Names like Nicklaus, Palmer, Strantz, Player and Fazio abound. But perhaps one stands slightly above the rest: Dye. Commonplace in Dye designs, water is an integral feature incorporated throughout Moorland’s par-72 layout. Players will find the rolling, mounding, generously wide fairways a pleasant challenge, along with large, undulating greens that require attention for each and every read.

Moorland opened in 1990 and remains a must-play experience for golfers looking for the biggest challenge at Legends. The back nine includes an incredible five-hole finish, with holes secluded amongst Carolina pines. The par-5 15th requires careful navigation around an invasive creek running the length of the hole and splitting the fairway 160 yards from the pin. The par-4 16th is drivable from all tees and is a great risk/reward challenge, and has an elevated green that really punishes players who go for the green and miss it. The finishing par-4 18th doglegs around a lake to the left and is as beautiful a final hole as it is fun to play.

Uniquely isolated from any homes, Moorland is a peaceful golf experience seldom found on the Grand Strand. And with MBGolf.com’s partner, Condo-World, staying on-site at Legends Golf Resort isn’t a problem at all. It is hard to imagine getting more bang for your buck than you do at Legends Moorland.

Swing into Spring: Benefits of Springtime Golf Make for “Perfect” Trip to Myrtle Beach

Tidewater 12 lo res

For those who live in colder areas of the United States, golf in the early springtime is something that can only be dreamt of. So, are you sick and tired of dreaming? Are you ready to escape the cold? Well then pack your clubs and head south. Things are really heating up here in Myrtle Beach.

According to Heather Royer, Golf Sales Manager for Condo-World, spring is the premier time of year to come to Myrtle Beach for a golf getaway.

“It’s 72 and sunny,” said Royer on a recent, sun-splashed day on the Grand Strand. “The forecast is expected to be the same. Conditions are perfect. It’s a perfect day to play.”

With local courses taking significant measures to ensure the quality of conditions for 2019, golf in Myrtle Beach is set for a great spring.

“Greens will be perfect. Conditions will be perfect,” says Royer.

When you visit Myrtle Beach in the springtime, course conditions are lusher as compared to the summertime, when things tend to be on the drier side, or the wintertime, when many grasses become dormant. Bermuda and bent grass are used for the vast majority of greens in Myrtle Beach and thrive during the peak spring months. Simply put, the ball rolls truer in Myrtle Beach because, come springtime, the grass is simply better.

Let’s also not forget that, come spring, Myrtle Beach’s social schedule picks up, with a variety of different concert and community events, as well as action at Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, and down on the boardwalk.

No matter where you are travelling from, MBGolf.com and Condo-World have the perfect stay-and-play package to help you and your group escape the cold. So, leave your pants and jackets at home. It’s time to get out and enjoy the sunshine!

Course Spotlight: Pawleys Plantation

Pawleys Plantation 13 lo res

Carved from natural marshland and woven around centuries-old live oaks draped in moss sits the signature Jack Nicklaus design, Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club.

Having just recently celebrated its 30th anniversary and a visit from the Golden Bear himself, there’s never been a better time to visit Pawleys Plantation.

The timeless par-72 layout flirts with scenic saltwater marshes that separate the course from the Atlantic Ocean, making for a breathtaking round of golf. The course stretches to 7,031 yards from the tips, or the “Golden Bear” tees, and 4,932 from the forward tees to ensure there is a comfortable yardage for every level of golfer.

One of the most notable holes at Pawleys Plantation is the 13th. Relatively sound conditions and tree-lined fairways on previous holes strikingly contrast with the setup on this daunting par 3. Tee boxes surrounded by marshland and a peninsula green across the hazard may have you leaving this hole a few more strokes over par than you anticipated. But we think the view will make up for it.

Pawleys Plantation has been named one of South Carolina’s Top 50 Courses and one of the Top 10 Courses in Myrtle Beach by the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel. The course, along with the 13th Hole, was also featured on Golf Channel’s “Big Break Myrtle Beach” in 2014 and has continued to receive national notoriety.

The Golden Bear surely outdid himself with the design at Pawleys Plantation, and it’s no wonder players continue to return to the course year after year. To play this gem on your next golf vacation to Myrtle Beach, call one of our friendly golf specialists at 800.422.1587 who can get your planning started!
