Some of the best golfing in the country and quite possibly in the world can be experienced in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. With more than 100 different Myrtle Beach golf courses available to you, it can be difficult to decide which one to play first. Following are a few of the top Myrtle Beach golf courses from which you can decide.
The Prestwick Country Club provides deep sand bunkers across a natural dune filled field framed by native pine, oaks, and dogwood trees. It’s a scenic, upscale course related closely to its Scottish namesake. This course is designed by Pete Dye. He received a 4.5 star rating for the course from Golfer’s Digest for the naturally challenging terrain, and 50-acre lake sitting between the 9th and 18th holes. Prestwick Country Club also received the best hospitality award in 2006, for their stunning restaurant and club where you can unwind after a rewarding day of golf.
Indigo Creek is another exciting Myrtle Beach golf course just south of Myrtle Beach and away from the crowds. It boasts lakes, marshes, waste bunkers, and beautiful, vast greens. Course designer Willard Byrd chose the site for its scenic marsh, set in the “Grand Strand” low country plantations, and won “Best New Course” at its inception in 1990. Par is 72, but the braver ones may challenge “Golf Master Jim” who holds a 62 record on the course. The on-site club and restaurant offer a number of choices for a meal or a quick snack.
For stunning views and an enjoyable, player friendly experience, one would be hard pressed to find a Myrtle Beach golf course better designed than Sea Trail. Another Willard Byrd course, it is known best for wide easy fairways, dogleg holes, roll it on pitch, and an occasional sand bunker. Playing here also means you may use all three courses for one reduced rate, which, as any golfer knows, can make all the difference between what you can play and what you can’t. If you need to practice, there are driving ranges, putting greens, and a designated area to practice sand and chipping. The clubhouse is known for its full service restaurant and friendly staff, while the locker rooms offer showers and other amenities to get ready for a delicious meal at one of Myrtle Beach’s award winning restaurants.
Regardless of which course you choose, Myrtle Beach has enough varied and different choices to make your golf vacation as enjoyable or challenging as it can be!
