As a dedicated golfer and Myrtle Beach local, I’m always excited to share the best that our area has to offer, especially when it comes to golf. Whether you’re an experienced player or just starting out, Myrtle Beach is the perfect place for a golf vacation. Here are my top five golf-related attractions in the area:
The Dunes Golf and Beach Club
One of the oldest and most respected golf clubs in Myrtle Beach is The Dunes Golf and Beach Club. Opened in 1949, this Robert Trent Jones designed course has been stunning players with its beauty and challenging holes for decades. Notably, the Club has hosted PGA Tours, USGA Championships, and the US Women’s Open.
Tidewater Golf Club
Tidewater Golf Club combines gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, and Cherry Grove Inlet with a challenging layout that will keep golfers of all skill levels engaged. The design of the course takes advantage of the natural landscape, resulting in a round that is as scenic as it is challenging.
Caledonia Golf and Fish Club
Situated in Pawleys Island along a rutted road lined with centuries-old, moss-draped oaks, Caledonia Golf and Fish Club is often considered one of the most visually impressive courses in the area. The mammoth live oaks and meandering streams make playing on this course an experience akin to walking through a natural history museum.
Barefoot Resort is home to four distinct golf courses, all designed by top names in the sport: Greg Norman, Davis Love III, Tom Fazio, and Pete Dye. Each course offers its own unique challenges and incredible vistas, with holes shaped around the natural features of the landscape, including a marina and the Intracoastal Waterway.
Topgolf Myrtle Beach
Last but not least, Topgolf Myrtle Beach brings an urban, high-tech spin to the traditional driving range. Topgolf features climate-controlled hitting bays, a diverse food and drink menu, and HDTVs in each bay playing sports all day. More than just a place to practice your swing, Topgolf is a golf-themed entertainment center perfect for players of all levels, and even non-golfers.
Yet the beauty of Myrtle Beach is not just in these attractions. Whether it’s the welcoming southern charm or the picturesque sunrise from the fairways, there’s a reason Myrtle Beach proudly holds the title of “The Golf Capital of the World.” Come see for yourself and prepare to be inspired both by the game of golf and the stunning attractions of our coastal city.
