The Avocet Course at Wild Wing Plantation, designed by three-time major champion Larry Nelson and Jeff Brauer, sets itself apart from the crowd with complex bunkering, a double green, a double fairway and water similar to moats guarding the greens.

Avocet is one of the area’s most playable layouts, allowing players to swing away with the driver but testing you to produce quality approach shots. The greens have been resurfaced with MiniVerde, the game’s most popular new strand of Bermudagrass.

One test for any destination golf course is memorability—and Avocet delivers. Avocet’s design helps create those memorable holes, challenging players with several risk-reward par 4s. The 362-yard ninth hole features a double fairway; hit the upper fairway and an easier approach awaits, but it’s the more difficult play off the tee. It’s a great close to the opening nine.

The 6th and 16th holes share a long double green, and the 14th hole is one of the five shortest (and most fun) holes on the Myrtle Beach golf scene.
