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.
