Golf's East Coast Mecca Is A Must-See

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

5 Player-Friendly Courses

1. Wicked Stick Golf Links
Its name might give you the wrong impression, but this John Daly and Clyde Johnston design is relatively flat and only slightly waterlogged, making it the perfect chance to knock some strokes off your index. Plus, you can’t beat the price. Some rounds ring up as low as $48.

2. King’s North
Now in its 10th year, this Arnold Palmer redesign of the Myrtle Beach National North Course is forgiving and challenging—even if the 18th hole features 40 bunkers. Hit it straight on 12, it’s an island green.

3. Lockwood Folly CC
This semi-private William Byrd design lies at the northern end of the Grand Strand in Shallotte, N.C. It winds through groves of hardwood trees and features views of the tidal estuary. It’s tight and tree-lined, but that doesn’t mean low numbers can’t be posted.

4. World Tour Golf Links
This 27-hole facility boasts three nines that draw inspiration from some of the world’s most famous golf holes. Augusta National (Amen Corner), St. Andrews, Cypress Point and Winged Foot are just a few of the famous courses represented.

5. Possum Trot Golf Club
Opened in 1968, this Russell Breeden design remains one of the best values on the Grand Strand. It’s also short and forgiving and a favorite among women. The red tees max out at just over 5,100 yards and the whites stop short of 6,400 yards. Still, it’s the greens fees that we love. $30-$69 for a round.
