Myrtlewood Golf Club

The Myrtle Beach Golf Club is home to two of South Carolina’s championship golf courses that have been attracting both the golfers and non-golfers coming from almost any part of the globe. With the golf course’s perfect setting along Myrtle Beach’s magnificent Itracoastal Waterway, guests can enjoy both the challenging tests of golf and the splendor of nature. Golf enthusiasts can opt for the strategic Pine Hills Course or the traditional Palmetto Course.

The Pine Hills Course has been considered as Arthur Hills’ first and only design that is set along the Grand Strand. The layout was formerly named as The Pines but was renamed in 1993 after the award-winning Hills redesigned the course. After the major changes, Pine Hills is still routed to its original path but with the addition of the strategically placed water hazards and the skillful use of mounding that created another unique feel. This 6,640-yard layout features the Tifdwarf Bermuda grass and has been given a course rating of 72.0 and a slope rating of 133. In 1997, the layout was cited by Golf Digest as among Myrtle Beach’s “Top Ten Courses” and has hosted several prestigious golf events.

The Palmetto Course on the other hand was designed by the famed Edmund B. Ault and has been considered by the many as an all-time favorite golfer’s haven for more than 30 years already. This par-72, 6,977-yard layout has also been continuously ranked as among the high ranking repeat-play courses that stand along the Grand Stand and is landscaped to give all sorts of golfers the optimum play. The layout also features the accommodating fairways, the Tifdwarf Bermuda grass greens, and the various hazards that will surely demand consistency as well as accuracy. The Palmetto Course was given a slope rating of 135 and a course rating of 73.7.
