South Myrtle Beach Golf Corses

Centuries old rice plantations, majestic live oak trees draped in Spanish moss, and the peaceful beauty of the area's saltwater marshes embody the qualities and appeal of south Myrtle Beach golf courses.

The mention of Myrtle Beach conjures up visions of great golf, late nights and an abundance of everything on your entertainment menu,, whatever that may be, but that isn't the case on the south end.

Stretching from Surfside to Georgetown, the south Myrtle Beach area offers a quiet charm and a casual pace.  The glitz of Myrtle Beach is replaced with the understated beauty of some of the area's most upscale golf, dining, and lodging options.

south Myrtle Beach golf courses offer a quiet refuge from the stress of daily life, providing golfers a glimpse of Lowcountry South Carolina. The oak trees, marshes, and freshwater tributaries provide a coastal golf landscape most visitors are unfamiliar with.

The South Strand isn't home to as many Myrtle Beach golf courses (a meager 18!) as the North and Central strands, but it has as high a concentration of elite courses as any destination in the country. Caledonia Golf and Fish Club, True Blue and Heritage Club, all located within a Tiger Woods drive of each other, are ranked among the nation's best layouts by the likes of Golf Digest, Golf  Magazine, and Golf World.

Willbrook Plantation, River Club, Litchfield Country Club, Founders Club and Pawleys Plantation, among many others, are all highly regarded courses located minutes apart.  Despite the closeness in proximity and shared landscape, each of the southern golf course layouts features a distinctive personality.

The difference in experience is attributable to the quality of architects who have left their imprint on the area.  Mike Strantz, Jack Nicklaus, Dan Maples, and Tom Fazio are just a sampling of the designers who have helped the area carve its niche.

Off the course, the South Strand's casual atmosphere shouldn't be confused with boring.  The area's restaurants are superb.  Frank's Outback is arguably the Myrtle Beach area's best, and the Marsh Walk in Murrell's Inlet offers a scenic stroll along a marsh that separates the mainland form the Atlantic and several of the area's most popular seafood restaurants.

An evening on the South Strand doesn't have to end with a quality dinner and stunning views.  Whether you want to go to the Hot Fish Club, Wahoos, or Dead Dog Saloon, opportunities to enjoy a festive night are many.

Brookgreen Gardens, the first public sculpture garden in America, offers a stunning off-course diversion as do The Hammock Shops in Pawleys Island, and a marina that includes charter fishing out of Murrells Inlet, the Seafood Capital of South Carolina.

One of the strengths of the Myrtle Beach golf market is the variety of experience it can offer visitors, and the South Strand is a unique part of that diversity.  The South Strand features the value golf Myrtle Beach built its reputation on, but is most known for its upscale offerings.

If great golf, great dining, and a casual, yet active, evening are what your group wants, the South Strand warrants serious consideration.
