Myrtle Beach Golf Course Reviews From GolfBlogger Golf Blog
Myrtle Beach is well-known as a fall and winter golf destination. Unfortunately, due to the schedule of my day job, I have only been able to play Myrtle Beach golf in the summer. Still, I have found the courses I played to be lots of fun, well-designed and well-kept. The heat, however, forced me to make the concession of riding in a cart instead of walking, as is my usual mode.
Of this limited offering, my favorite was Caledonia, which is a fixture on the “Top 100 You Can Play In America” lists. I loved Pine Lakes for its old school ambiance — it is Myrtle Beach’s original course. Grand Dunes also is on my must-play in Myrtle Beach list. But I think the others also deserve a place on your Myrtle Beach golf vacation itinerary.
Myrtle Beach courses seem to offer quite the variety of course designs and flavors. Caledonia, for example is a woodlands style course, with isolated fairways lined by cathedral-like trees. In that, it reminded me of the best of Up North Michigan courses, but without the hills. Grande Dunes, built on sand hills, is a links-style course, along the intercoastal. On the other hand, Myrtlewood’s Palmetto course is a parklands style layout. There is seemingly something here for everyone.

And another in South Carolina, on Isle of Palms
Unlike the others, my visit to Wild Dunes was in the fall, and I was able to walk that course.
I am hoping that some year, I’ll be able to take a Christmas or Spring Break trip to Myrtle Beach to get away from the Michigan Winters. Then I can experience Myrtle Beach golf in its full glory.
