The TPC brand is one of the strongest in the golf travel industry, and it’s Myrtle Beach offering is one of the reasons for its sterling reputation.
TPC Myrtle Beach was built with the idea that it would be among the nation’s finest courses, and the Tom Fazio design has certainly fulfilled its promise. The course opened in time to host 1999 Senior PGA Tour Championship, an event won by Tom Watson, and it has been among the Grand Strand’s most prominent layouts ever since.
Golf Digest ranks TPC Myrtle Beach among America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses and it earned 5 stars in the magazine’s Places to Play guide, making it one of fewer than 20 courses nationwide to earn the honor.
The layout has accumulated accolades with good reason. It’s a spectacular design, highlighted by one the most dramatic finishing holes on the Myrtle Beach golf scene. The par 5 18th hole has a creek the dissects the fairway and the round concludes on a peninsula green, forcing a risk-reward decision on the second shot.
The 17th is the course’s signature hole. Featuring a near-island green that is surrounded by water on three sides, the 193-yard hole is reminiscent of its famed counterpart at Sawgrass.
“It’s a great golf course and it’s always in great shape,” said PGA Tour star Dustin Johnson, who calls TPC Myrtle Beach his home course. “You’ve got to hit a lot of different shots and any time you can challenge yourself, it’s a good thing.”
