The Burning Ridge Golf Club is said to be Myrtle Beach’s pride when it comes to pro style courses. Designed by the famed Gene Hamm, this known golf vacation destination offers golfing guests with 2 uniquely designed 18-hole layouts. Most of the holes were perfectly blended with the gently rolling fairways, smooth putting greens, as well as the yawning greens. Among the added highlights are the towering trees and plenty of placid lakes that make the layout a true shot makers test made for various tournament plays. To be exact, there are about 16 holes that come along with bunker and water features on it.
In 2006, after an extensive renovation, the Burning Ridge Golf Club was voted as Myrtle Beach’s “Golf Course of the Year”. Not only that, the course was also cited as the “South Carolina Golf Course of the Year”. The two featured courses at the Burning Ridge were named as The West Course and The East Course. To make a distinction between the two layouts, Hamm designed “The West Course” with plenty of water hazards while “The East Course” is dominated by sand. Golfers will then recognize one from the other. Nonetheless, these courses provide the fair test of golf that most enthusiasts are after. From the championship tees, the layouts were given course ratings of 71.8 and 72.9 and slopes of 122 and 128.
What makes the Burning Ridge Golf Club unique from the rest of the South Carolina golf courses is that guests can culminate the entire day’s affair with a cup of coffee by the deck. The country club atmosphere brings about the relaxing feel that the whole family can enjoy. Arrange now with golf vacation experts and experience a vacation of a lifetime.
