What makes the Palmetto Greens Golf and Country Club an exciting place to spend a great golf vacation escapade is that guests can play at areas where great spots abound. When Architect Rick Robbins designed this stunning golf course, maybe what he has in mind was that everyone playing here will be amazed after each round. Who would not? The 18 holes were uniquely designed to make them challenging enough for any skill level. To add up the charm, a 15 feet manmade waterfall was made to highlight the 6,345 yards layout along with several other exciting features. And to provide golfers with the comfortable feel while at play, fairways were built on Norman Bermuda grasses and the greens on L93 Bent grass.
What was known as the Colonial Charters Golf Club that was opened way back in 1988 is now Myrtle Beach’s newest course. After Rick Robbins remodeled the course, it was reopened in 2008 and was named as Palmetto Greens Golf and Country Club. And now it has been attracting golfing and non-golfing guests from almost all parts of the globe.
Here’s a quick look on some of the course’s challenging holes.
The #1 hole, a 500-yard Par 5, features the large lake runs that are parallel to the fairway’s left side progressing all the way to the layout’s greens which makes the hole very intimidating.
The #3 hole offers the Par-5 play that will challenge you after an easy hole #2.
The #7 hole that offers a Par-4, 278-yard play is a risk-reward situation. Golfers must be able to decide on whether to opt for an over the water play or play safe and take the left.
The #11 hole features the tree on the middle of the fairway. Land the golf ball behind the tree and you’ll be blocked on the second shot.
The #18 hole is a Par-4 that features a dogleg right fairway that would require an uphill tee shot. Downhill approach shots will lead you all the way to an elevated green protected by the deep sand bunkers placed on the front and right side while off the left is a waste area. This final hole has been considered as toughest of them all.
