Myrtle Beach Golf Courses Designed By Masters Champions

Everyone’s favorite tournament, The Masters, is upon us. So what better time to take a look at the Myrtle Beach golf courses that were designed by Masters winners?   Here is a glance at the men who hold the distinction of winning a green jacket and designing a Grand Strand golf course.

Carolina National is one of nine area courses designed by a Masters ChampionEveryone’s favorite tournament, The Masters, is less than a month away and the spring golf season is upon us. So what better time to take a look at the Myrtle Beach golf courses that were designed by Masters winners?  

Here is a glance at the men who hold the distinction of winning a green jacket and designing a Grand Strand golf course.

Fred Couples - One of the game’s most popular players crafted a beauty at Carolina National. A 27-hole facility, Carolina National plays along the Calabash River and is one of the North Strand’s most memorable designs.

Jack Nicklaus – The man with six green jackets has two outstanding Myrtle Beach layouts to his credit. Nicklaus was the architect behind Long Bay and Pawleys Plantation, two different but equally compelling courses. Pawleys Plantation has several holes that play along a salt marsh, showcasing the area’s lowcountry beauty, while Long Bay uses ample mounding and sand to create stunning visuals.

Raymond Floyd – The 1976 Masters champion worked with Tom Jackson to design 27 holes at Arrowhead. With multiple holes that play along the Intracoastal Waterway and an unwavering commitment to course conditioning, Arrowhead has long been an area favorite.

Gary Player – The term globetrotter was practically invented for Player, who was the game’s first international star. The Black Knight’s travels took him to Myrtle Beach when he designed Blackmoor, a classic South Strand layout that continually sends players home with a smile on their face.

Arnold Palmer – The King was as successful designing Myrtle Beach golf courses as he was in winning four green jackets. Arnie’s quartet of area designs includes all three courses at Myrtle Beach National and Rivers Edge, a layout that has been ranked among America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses. King’s North, also a top 100 layout, is one of the area’s seminal designs.
