Where to stay & play on a Myrtle Beach golf trip
One of South Carolina’s go-to golf destinations, check out our top stay & play locations along Myrtle Beach’s famous coastline.
The coastal city of Myrtle Beach is a major tourism destination in South Carolina and the US as a whole. Home to more than 80 award-winning golf courses, this picture-perfect coastline provides great variety in landscape, design, and difficulty, ensuring there is something for everyone.
Plus, with a great choice of hotels and resorts on offer, visitors will be well catered for on their next South Carolina golf trip. Read on to find your next ideal destination in this golf haven.
Towards the north of Myrtle Beach is Barefoot Golf Resort, a complex that boasts four championship-standard golf courses - each one designed by legends of the game. The Love and Fazio courses are customer favorites and a little more forgiving than the Norman and Dye courses, which are recommended for experienced golfers who like a challenge.
Each designer has added their flare to each course, meaning no two are the same and you can expect to find a myriad of course layouts from rolling fairways, water hazards, and elevated tees and greens.
Off the course, enjoy comfortable accommodation with two and four-bedroom villas available, each one equipped with all your home comforts. For dining, experiencing Dirty Don’s Oyster Bar and Grill is a must for tourists, however, if you’re looking for variety then the short trip to Barefoot Landing or Myrtle Beach center for evening entertainment is just as convenient.
Caledonia Golf & Fish Club
First opening its doors in 1994 and designed by one of golf’s greatest architects, Mike Strantz, Caledonia Golf Course is fun for all. Measuring at just over 6,500 yards from the back tees, it is slightly shorter than other courses in the local area. Despite this, clever bunker placement and water hazards make for some exciting approach shots and will require even the best golfer to be on top form if they’re to score well.
The course has immaculate rolling fairways and excellent greens which make putting an absolute dream. Ensure you save your best shots until the final hole which is considered to be their signature par-4 as you make your way back towards the clubhouse and a well-earned post-round drink.
Legends Golf Resort
This enormous golfing estate has been inspired by the luxury resorts of Scotland, the ‘Home of Golf’. It even has its on-site pub named after one of Scotland’s most iconic golf courses, the Ailsa Pub, referring to Turnberry’s Ailsa Course. The accommodation options are perfect for small groups of friends and families who want all the comforts of home just with the added benefit of five on-site golf courses.
The Legends Golf Resort is home to five golf courses, each one distinctly different to the other as their names would suggest; Heathland, Parkland, Moorland, Oyster Bay Links, and The Heritage Club. These courses offer something for everyone and can provide plenty of challenges and changes for those playing multiple rounds on their golf trip.
The Moorland course, designed by Pete Dye, is arguably the crowning glory amongst the set and will challenge skillful golfers with deep rough and bunkers penalizing errant shots. However, the course’s pristine condition is joyous to play and good shots will be rewarded.
Marina Inn at Grande Dunes
Based near the many waterways surrounding Myrtle Beach, from rivers to the expansive ocean, Marina Inn at Grande Dunes is one of the top golf resorts in South Carolina. Here guests can experience impeccable accommodation and resort amenities including private balconies, bars, restaurants, and leisure facilities.
The golf available to guests is world-class and includes Grande Dunes Golf Club, which is on-site and can be overlooked by some of the hotel rooms. Visitors will also have access to Myrtlewood Golf Club and Arcadian Shores Golf Club, two fantastic courses that add variety to any golf vacation in this area of South Carolina.
