Three notable holes at Wild Wing Avocet make it a must-play for all who visit
Located off Highway 501 in the heart of Myrtle Beach, Wild Wing Avocet was designed by the team of Jeff Brauer and Larry Nelson and presents a golf experience that is contemporary and challenging. The course, which plays to a par 72 and measures more than 7,100 yards from the back tees, can be booked as an individual tee time or as part of a golf package with MBGolf.com, and features several notable holes that you won’t want to miss on your next golf getaway, including Nos. 6, 17 and 18.
One tremendously unique aspect at Wild Wing Avocet is its iconic double green, shared between Nos. 6 and 17. Put simply, the double green is one of the more impressive putting surfaces anywhere on the East Coast, and features so many tiers and undulations, it can become mind-boggling to read your putt, though is still so much fun to play on.
No. 6 is a long par 4 with water running down the left of the fairway and trees down the right. If you hit a poor drive, it will be impossible to have any sort of angle into the double green’s lower side, which services the hole. Meanwhile, from another direction, No. 17 is a scenic par 3 that forces players to hit it over a sizeable marsh that fronts the higher side of the double green. Be sure to take extra club here as the hole plays longer than it looks from the tee.
Finally, No. 18 is a proper finishing hole, with water down the entire left side and a challenging green that slopes from back to front. Hit a good drive here and give yourself a chance to put one close and sink a birdie to finish your day.
Locals and visitors alike find Wild Wing Avocet to be everything they expect of a championship course, with beautifully framed tee shots, strategically placed bunkers, dynamically incorporated lakes, subtle mounding and assertive greens.
