3 days in Myrtle Beach
Save money this spring on the Grand Strand
| #17 on the Palmetto Course ||# 11 at the PineHills Course.|
|Two par-3s at Myrtlewood Golf Club measure the same length and demand carries over water hazards.|
On day three, you have a couple options: Either tee it up at another Waccamaw Golf Trail course or head back up north to the 36-hole, Myrtlewood Golf Club, a Myrtle Beach favorite for over 40 years. Myrtlewood boasts two designs, Palmetto and PineHills, and both incorporate lots of water in their designs, including the Intracoastal Waterway. PineHills, formerly known as The Pines, is the only Arthur Hills course in Myrtle Beach, while Edmund B. Ault designed the Palmetto Course. Both courses have player-friendly layouts and offer a great chance to card a low score before your vacation ends.
