One of the many Must-Play Golf Courses in Myrtle Beach
Mar17

The Myrtle Beach area is known for its celebrity-designed golf courses, and Coral Beach Resort is located in the center of it all! From upscale to laid-back, you’re sure to find something to fit your style with more than 90 courses to choose from in the Myrtle Beach area. To help you decide, we’ve created a guide of the top 10 golf courses along the Grand Strand. Here are our must-play golf courses in Myrtle Beach:

Tidewater Golf Club

Tidewater is beautifully nestled between the Intracoastal Waterway and Cherry Grove, just north of Myrtle Beach. With undulating greens, plush fairways and serene views of the ocean, marshes and waterway, this course instantly became a favorite among golfers after opening in 1990.

Ken Tomlinson, a native South Carolinian, created the Tidewater course with the goal of using the already-intricate landscape to inspire his design. He studied other famous courses of the time, hoping to create a course worthy of a national championship tour.

Barefoot Resort

Nicknamed the “Fantastic Four”, the four courses that makeup Barefoot Resort were designed by an all-star constellation of architects. You can “bump and run” on the Norman Course, play in championship-caliber on the Fazio Course, see both beauty and treachery on the Dye Course or enjoy the turtleback greens of the Love Course. No matter what course you choose, they all boast unique designs that are sure to challenge even the best golfer. !

Long Bay Golf Club

This Founders Collection course features a signature design by “The Golden Bear” himself, Jack Nicklaus. Long Bay Golf Club is located just outside of North Myrtle Beach in Longs off of Hwy 9. Nicklaus’ design preserved many of the natural elements of the area, including dogwoods, pines and maples, alongside streams and ponds that weave through the course.

Players will find a variety of bunker styles, thick grass on the fairways, multiple elevation differences throughout the course and green surfaces that putt true. Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” gave Long Bay Golf 4.5 Stars.

Grande Dunes Resort Club

Located north of the Myrtle Beach airport, Grande Dunes Golf Course is situated on a high bluff along the Intracoastal waterway and is one of the longest courses in the country. The National Golf Course Owners Association of America has even named it the “National Golf Course of the Year.”

The Grande Dunes Course is known for its expansive Bermuda grass fairways and modestly contoured greens. In addition to its spectacular links, the course also features a Mediterranean-styled clubhouse with great food and magnificent views.

King’s North at Myrtle Beach National

King’s North, one of three courses at Myrtle Beach National, is a local favorite. Arnold Palmer redesigned the course in 1996, which boasts a variety of awards by Golf Digest and Golf for Women. The highlight of this iconic course is the par-5 6th hole nicknamed “The Gambler” with its challenging island fairways. Myrtle Beach National is part of the Founders Collection and is located off of Hwy 501, just inland from Myrtle Beach.

TPC Myrtle Beach

Despite the name, TPC is actually located south of Myrtle Beach in Murrells Inlet. Tournament Players Club of Myrtle Beach originally opened in 1999 and hosted the Senior PGA Tour Championship in 2000. Home of the Dustin Johnson Golf School, TPC is a championship setup with a Tom Fazio layout featuring tree-lined holes, more than 60 bunkers and secluded fairways.

TPC Myrtle Beach is a par-72 course with PGA Tour-caliber elements. Despite the difficulty of the course, all skill levels will find the 18 holes enjoyable with five sets of tees. Watch out for hole 17, the most challenging of the course! This par-3 has a long downhill over water to a peninsula-shaped green promising a high risk-reward factor.

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club

This course was built on a former rice plantation and exudes all the southern, Lowcountry charm you could desire. Century-old live oaks filled with Spanish moss greet you at the entrance of this golf course and follow you throughout its lush fairways.

The large greens are guarded by ponds, streams and imposing bunkers that hide the surrounding neighborhood. Caledonia has been ranked one of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” by Golf Digest and 29th on the “Top 100 You Can Play” by Golf Magazine. This 6,526-yard par-70 course will not disappoint!

True Blue

True Blue Golf Club opened in 1998 and boasts a Mike Strantz signature design. Strantz took care to maintain the natural beauty of this former indigo and rice plantation when creating Caledonia’s sister course. True Blue claims an 18-hole par-72 course with an 18-acre practice facility.

Home of the Steve Dresser Golf Academy, True Blue is playable for all ages with six sets of tee boxes. The course features wide fairways, spacious greens, yawning waste bunkers, significant elevation changes and an abundance of natural beauty.

Willbrook Plantation

Nestled beautifully around Lowcountry marshes and wetlands, Willbrook Plantation’s 18 holes flaunt a Dan Maples design. Flanked by two historical plantations, the course is peppered with live oaks draped in Spanish moss.

The course kicks off with one of the toughest openers around and is one of the most popular courses for women in South Carolina. Opening its doors in 1988, this Pawleys Island golf course features water on 15 of its 18 holes.

Heritage Club

Part of the Legends Golf Resort family, Heritage Club is located along the Waccamaw River on the southern end of Pawleys Island. The natural beauty of the area shines through with giant magnolias, live oaks, freshwater lakes and marshes that weave in and out of the greens. A Dan Maples design, Heritage was constructed among two plantations and borders abandoned rice fields showcasing the area’s Lowcountry charm.

The course is a par-71 that immediately greets golfers with a challenge at the second hole, a long and narrow par-5 guarded by trees, traps and water. The golf club also features a grass driving range, a large putting practice with chipping green and a welcoming clubhouse. Golfers will love the stunning scenery surrounding the demanding layout of this course.

Myrtle Beach Spring Break with friends on the beach

Did you know that the months of March and April in Myrtle Beach have temperatures around 80 degrees and an average of only 5 rainy days in both months? We might be a little biased, but we believe a Myrtle Beach Spring Break getaway is the best there ever was! From water sports to late-night dancing, here is a list of our favorite spring break activities, dining, shopping, and nightlife.

 

Myrtle Beach Spring Break Activities

Kayaking

While it might still be a little cool for a dip in the ocean, kayaking is a great way to be on the water without getting too wet. Kayaking gives you a chance to see a side of the Grand Strand that most tourists miss completely. There are many kayaking companies to choose from in the area but we recommend Black River Outdoors. 

Their Cypress Swamp Tour and Sandy Island Tour take guests along portions of the Waccamaw River. Their Salt Marsh Tour, Kayak Fishing Tour, Huntington Beach State Park Tour, and Full Moon Tour all take guests through the salt marsh of Murrells Inlet and toward the jetties. Tours range from 2-4 hours. Visit their website for tour details, rates, and to book your next tour.

SkyWheel

This Myrtle Beach icon is definitely one you need to check out! The SkyWheel towers 200 feet over the Atlantic Ocean and gives you a view of miles of the Myrtle Beach coast. You can also enjoy the beautiful Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and ocean views with your family no matter the season or weather in one of the SkyWheel’s 42 fully-enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas. They’re open Sunday-Friday from 11am – 10pm and Saturday from 11am – 11pm. Purchase your tickets online to save time and skip the line.

**2021 Update** The SkyWheel is temporarily closed this Winter for maintenance and upgrades. The gondolas are being removed, revamped inside, and repainted outside. The entire structure is receiving a fresh coat of paint and regularly needed maintenance. Also, in preparation for the 10th Birthday of the SkyWheel in Myrtle Beach (coming May 2021), new LED lights are being installed on the SkyWheel. 

Golf

The Myrtle Beach area is known for its celebrity-designed golf courses, and with over 90 courses to choose from, you really can’t go wrong! Golf is a great daytime activity, especially in the beautiful spring weather. Head south to enjoy a day at Caledonia, Heritage, or True Blue. Head north to experience one of Barefoot Golf’s Fantastic Four signature courses. Or stay around Myrtle Beach and play golf at River Oaks, Pine Lakes, or Grande Dunes.
